A lump in my throat

This 86-year-old World War II Veteran on Marriage Equality: 

"What do you think I fought for at Omaha Beach?"

Warning: Get ready for a lump in your throat.


  1. Wonderful Brad. Thanks for sharing. I got choked up too.

  2. My Dad, God Rest His Soul, also fought in WWII and although we never talked openly about my sexual preference he knew who I was and he never once denied me guidance and assistance and treated me as an equal to my two brothers (the youngest one also being gay). Praise to this Brave Soldier for standing proud (as he has the right to) and proclaim his believe that "all are created equal."

  3. Thanks for sharing, Brad. A powerful and timely reminder for those opposing equal rights in your country, and other countries opposing equal rights for its citizens.

    From Norway with love,

  4. I can't imagine what it would have been like at Omaha Beach and am thankful of men like him that survived that horrible ordeal. Such a great and compassionate man.

  5. Beautiful, Bradley. Not only the lump in my throat, but blinded by tears.

    My father, who died in 2011, was a navigator in the Air Force during WWII, and I know he felt the same way as this gracious man. My first cousin, his nephew, is gay, and there was never an issue about it between them, just love and respect. Thank you for sharing this video.

  6. Very nice. A good way to end my day! Thank you.

    Peace <3

  7. Thank you for sharing this, Bradley.

  8. That was so touching. Thanks Brad, for sharing.

  9. What a wonderful man. Thanks for posting this.
