‘I couldn’t go by this flag this morning and not give it everything I had,’ he said. 

The former SEAL continued: ‘The gold stars on this monument and the sacrifice that has been made for all us was something I wasn’t just going to pass by. 

‘This flag pole climb reminded me about EVERYTHING in life. There has been way to grave of sacrifice for me not to try. Once I do try I have to give it my ALL for them. If I fail…honor them by trying one more time and get better every time I do it.’

‘While we watch parts of our country fall to mainstream confusion, complacency, and ignorance, there is a few that are willing to climb or stand or do whatever it takes.’
