(VIDEO) Little Boy Hands Silent Marine His Christmas List. Now Pay Attention to That Marine’s Left Hand

The US Marine Corps has been a symbol of pride for our nation for 240 years, sacrificing greatly for their countrymen and always regarded with honor and respect.

While known for their bravery in combat, Marines often don’t receive the recognition they deserve for their charitable efforts outside of military service, particularly when it comes to helping children.

Toys For Tots, founded by Major Bill Hendricks, USMC, in 1947, began as a small initiative to provide toys for less fortunate children but has since grown into a nationwide program with increasing donations each year. As Christmas approaches, Toys For Tots needs our support more than ever.

In the iconic 1997 Christmas commercial titled “Guard Duty,” a heartwarming moment unfolds as an adorable boy approaches a stoic Marine on duty. Despite their disciplined demeanor, the Marine’s reaction to the child is priceless. Watch and consider sharing this piece of American history for a good cause.
