'Most American thing ever': Woman stranded in floodwaters saved by bus full of Marines





Quote
A woman stranded in a flash flood last week near Washington, D.C., was saved by a bus full of Marines who pushed her vehicle out of the water to safety.
Virginia Waller-Torres was driving near Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia when she was caught in rising waters during a storm on Sept. 16. A bus full of Marines pulled over next to her to offer a helping hand. Waller-Torres recorded a video of the Marines as they pushed her vehicle to safety.
"Marine power!" Waller-Torres is heard saying in the video. "This is so cool. Oh my God, this is the most American thing ever. Thank you so much!"


The Marines were "Body Bearers," part of an elite unit responsible for carrying the caskets of slain Marines.


Carry On Marines, Carry On. salute

A wonderful story indeed and it's nice to see something positive for once in the news.

Yeah, I thought about that... Ultimate pride in appearance in units like theirs.

You know you could use their shoes for mirrors before they jumped in the water to help that person.

They should get a BIG attaboy for that one. Just a great piece of what it is all about.
