He Saluted This Marine, But It Was What He Did After That Made Me Cry.

I am currently not a grandfather so at this moment I can only imagine the great pride and joy that retired U.S. Marine Staff Sergeant James Williams must have felt when he was given the great honor of delivering the first salute to his granddaughter, 2nd Lieutenant Charlotte Williams, as she completed the ceremony to officially become an officer in the United States Marine Corps.

Her feat isn't only something that definitely made her family and her country proud but also women all around the world because she did something that very few women ever accomplish. Hats off to her and ever other woman who took that leap.
