#1 Sgt. Tim Chambers
This is Sergeant Tim Chambers. Every year, during the Rolling Thunder parade, he stands holding his salute for more than 3 hours as veterans pass by in their motorcycles. The parade starts at the pentagon and goes until the Vietnam veterans memorial.
#2 In trouble
Two years ago, Sergeant Chambers was standing in the middle of the parade when some veterans noticed that he was in pain and sweating a lot.
#3 Bikers come to help
His broken wrist was giving him a lot of pain. A group of bikers came to help him and gave him water and aspirin to help him endure the pain.
#4 A Hero
Chambers doesn’t really speak with the media, but he is considered a hero within the veteran community. Families of those who were killed in battle usually place some of their personal items in front of him during the ceremony.
