WATCH: Marine Father’s Salute To Son Is Giving Everyone Goosebumps


A Marine father choked up while giving a salute to his son after becoming a second lieutenant and it’s giving everyone chills. The father, Master Sgt. Michael Fisher, posted the video on the video-sharing app TikTok, where it reached over 3 million views in a few days.

“I’ve watched you grow and mature and become the man that you are today,” Fisher says to his son in the video. “You have always been respectful by saying, ‘Yes, sir, no sir; yes ma’am, no ma’am.’ A salute is a sign of respect. It is a privilege to render you your first salute.”

The two are standing just about a foot away from each other, when Fisher raises his hand to his right brow to give his military salute to his son. He chokes up as he says, “It’s even a greater honor to say congratulations, sir, for your commission.” It’s a powerful moment as viewers watch his son raise his own hand to his right brow to salute his father right back.
