!! OMG, How Patriotic: WWII Veteran For Gay Marriage !!

“The woman at my polling place asked me do I believe in equality for gay and lesbian people. I was pretty surprised to be asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked her: what do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach? “

I started getting teary about twenty seconds in. Time yourself to see how long it takes you to start totally crying!

  1. Now THIS MAN deserves the Nobel Peace Prize! Take it back from Obama and give it to him!

  2. I started crying when he mentioned that his wife died too, then I started wondering if his gay son was cute and single.
    I love this old dude.

  3. K… I didn’t cry ’cause I had my tear ducts removed, but it is inspiring and beautiful to see such an old man, who really should be in peaceful retirement, speaking out passionately about an issue that, as he says, is a no brainer (ok not in those words but u get what i mean).
    Wish everybody could be like him 😐

  4. Well, I lost it when he said his wife died.

  5. I am seriously moved to tears by this. Absolutely beautiful sentiment. God Bless this man, for his views and service to equality.
