A true American who respects the flag and for what it stands for.

Ok. I'm a sap for these too, but this seems a bit contrived. I will be waiting for the id of this person so I can personally contribute $ to get him off of a delivery route. If he is real, and this is real, he needs help.

Not to be a party pooper, but I was going to say the same thing. An old Disabled Veteran, barely able to move, hobbling in with an Amazon delivery wearing a veterans hat and all of a sudden a flag just happens to appear behind him, followed by an over-the-top salute and about face turn?

Hmmmmm....

I'm totally for showing respect to the flag, but this seems set up to me.

So if you click on "Rick Lax's" ID at the top left, you'll see that these are all faked and he has the following disclaimer:

Apparently he has a whole slew of these faked videos. Some people have WAY too much time on their hands.

The first thing that occurred to me was that the guy could barely walk or bend, yet he was able to execute a full 180 degree turn on the balls of his feet?

Uhhhh...no.

What would piss me off is that he's likely impersonating a wounded veteran, which is a shitty thing to do IMHO.

I had that thought, too. No way is that guy going to be able to do the amount of deliveries needed a day to support his job, so either Amazon hired this guy specifically as a token, Like a Walmart greeter, or it's staged.

If he's not a veteran he should be publicly outed and humiliated. Why fake something like that?

For the same reason that guys spend a good part of their careers in the Navy in a supply depot or peeling potatoes and then go tell someone in a bar that they were/are part of Seal Team 6.

To move people emotionally?

How is this different than any other fictional drama?
