The photo shows an Atlanta Braves fan holding an umbrella over a JROTC member, WFTS reports. The kind gesture happened during the recognition of the POW-MIA Chair of Honor in the third inning at Suntrust Park in Atlanta on Memorial Day.
The news outlets report that during the ceremony, a Parkview High School U.S. Marine Corps JROTC member stood next to the chair in the rain. Seeing this, a fan opened his umbrella and held it above the student to shield him from the rain.
We’re proud to always have a chair designated for Prisoners of War at SunTrust Park. https://t.co/d4iYeMbaNr— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) May 28, 2018
