The Marine Corps have been a cornerstone of pride for our country over the last 240 years. They have given a great deal for their fellow Americans all while they aren’t always looked up to with honor and gratitude. These incredible service men and women are brave, but are often not shown the credit they deserve when doing other good things outside of fighting for our country’s ideals. They often have a soft spot for children and the video below shows just that.
This is from a program called Toys For Tots created back in 1947. Major Bill Hendricks wanted to give toys to the children of his community who looked as if they weren’t going to have the best holiday. This amazing man had no clue what his idea was going to turn into.
Every year the program gets more wide spread as more people join in the giving. Check out this Marine and watch that left hand of his as the surprise unfolds.
We love the armed forces and hope that you do too. Check out this video below and please leave a comment to let us know how it made you feel. Also, please go ahead and share the clip with your friends and family alike.
