The US Marine Corps has been a symbol of pride for our nation over the last 240 years. They have sacrificed a great deal for their countrymen and they are always looked upon with honor and respect. These courageous men and women are known for their bravery, but are often not given the publicity they deserve when doing other good deeds outside of fighting for our country’s freedom. Often times, when it comes to children, they have a soft spot for them and do a lot to help children around the world. We have seen countless moments depicting that and this video is one of them.
The video was made for a program called Toys For Tots which was created back in 1947. Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR, decided to give toys to the less fortunate children of his community, but this incredible man no idea that his small initiative would spread all across the country in the upcoming years. The program has gotten bigger each year, and more and more people have donated over the years.
The marine in this clip keeps up a serious expression, but watch his left hand when a little boy asks if he is Santa Claus. His small gesture makes this little boy a true believer. Marines are truly an inspiration, aren’t they?
