Every year since 2011, “Lone Marine” Staff Sgt. Tim Chambers stands tall in Washington D.C. to salute the Rolling Thunder biker rally as they ride into town.
Veterans from all branches of the military ride into D.C. every Memorial Day to remember fallen veterans and wounded warriors alike. The rally draws hundreds of motorcyclists from all over the country, and it often takes more than three hours for the caravan to pass by. As long as there are bikes rolling by, Staff Sgt Tim Chambers is there, standing at attention with an unwavering salute. What started as a heartfelt show of respect has become a moral obligation for Sgt. Chambers, one that he never plans on giving up.
The show of respect from one veteran to another is powerful on its own, but watching the way passing bikers and spectators honor Sgt. Chambers is more heartwarming still. Watch below as Staff Sgt. Chambers holds a salute in the blazing sun with a broken wrist. I’ve never seen such determination.
A little respect goes a long way. Let a veteran know you’re grateful for their sacrifice the next chance you get. They’ll be more than thankful.
