Look what these 3 patriot roofers did when they heard the anthem

At a high school football game in Waterville, Maine, Saturday, members of the crowd saw something they simply couldn’t ignore during the national anthem.

“Hey, look. They’re not kneeling,” said someone at the game.  

Turning around, a member of the crowd, Michelle Lyons Cossar, spotted three roofers nearby stopping their work, hands over hearts, in honor of the national anthem. She took a photo of the #classyroofers and posted it to Facebook.

“When I looked over the fence, I saw them standing and respecting the flag even though they didn’t have to,” Cossar told WGN9 in Chicago.

“I just thought the world could use a little more of that right now,” she said.

The three men — identified as Dwayne Harrison, Danny Thyng and James Scraggs — had no idea anyone was paying attention and were not trying to be noticed.

“We were raised to respect and honor our country,” Harrison said. “Instead of making lots of noise during the national anthem, we all reacted together and stood.”

On Monday, a group of city council members in Ann Arbor, Mich., also made news, as they took a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance to virtue signal in front of cameras. Those cheap political stuntmen with their cushy city council jobs can learn a thing or two about proper respect and behavior from these blue-collar workers in Maine.
