Marine holds salute for 3 hours to Honor Fallen Brothers

This past Memorial Day weekend, local legend, Staff Sargent Tim Chambers, honored his fallen brothers by holding a salute for a mind-blowing 3 hours. If you can't appreciate how much strength, both mentally and physically, this takes, try holding a salute for the two minutes you're supposed to brush your teeth in the morning and night. Those two minutes are only a fraction of the time Chambers spent saluting his brothers in arms over a makeshift memorial in Washington D.C. 

As an added bonus, Chambers was accompanied by the Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom, in which motorcyclists ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Memorial. Rolling Thunder Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the search of American soldiers who are prisoners of war or missing in action. Rolling Thunder was established in 1987. Approximately 900,000 motorcycle riders parade through the streets of Washington, D.C. The sights and sounds from this Memorial Day were no disappointment.

Check out the video below from 2011, which shows Chambers holding the salute, even with a broken wrist.
