A photo showing an Idaho schoolboy lying on the ground to ensure that no part of an American flag touched the ground has gained international attention.

Facebook user Amanda Reallan snapped the patriotic picture on Wednesday as she waited for her children at Hayden Meadows Elementary School in Hayden, Idaho.

The article goes on to state the following:

She noticed two boys taking down the school’s flag. They were struggling to fold it, she told USA TODAY, and the flag nearly scraped the ground.

That’s when another boy jumped into action. He laid himself down underneath the flag, allowing the other two to fold it without the flag dragging on the earth.

    That boy will one day become a proud Marine. Semper Fi young man. You’ve got more in you at such an early age than most adults in America today.
