While performing his daily workout a former Navy Seal came across an american flag that was hanging off the pole by one carabiner. Raso chose not only to not ignore the issue but to take action and fix it himself.
The task took multiple attemps as Raso explains in his facebook post, “After a 3.5 mile run and smoked from the previous attempts, This was my 4th attempt at trying to get up and fix the flag,” He continues, “Literally had to visualize what I was doing wrong and what I had to do to correct my inefficiencies in order to improve for the next attempt.”
🇺🇸 flag needed to be fixed at the Navy SEAL monument this morning. After a 3.5 mile run and smoked from the previous attempts, This was my 4th attempt at trying to get up and fix the flag. Literally had to visualize what I was doing wrong and what I had to do to correct my inefficiencies in order to improve for the next attempt. I couldn’t go by this flag this morning and not give it everything I had. The gold stars on this monument and the sacrifice that has been made for all us was something I wasn’t just going to pass by. This flag pole climb reminded me about EVERYTHING in life. There has been way to grave of sacrifice for me not to try. Once I do try I have to give it my ALL for them. If I fail…honor them by trying one more time and get better every time I do it. 🇺🇸 ARMR-UP #CRUSHEVERYTHING #ISTAND #ICLIMB #honor #GodblessAmerica thanks @bamfony for the boost!

According to the Virginian Pilot the video that has now garnered more than 12,000 likes, 1,700 comments and 9,600 shares on Facebook, Raso climbed the flagpole himself to fix the flag.
Raso, a former SEAL Team 6 operative, left the Navy in 2012, according to the New York Times. Now he’s behind the Dynamis Alliance self-defense company.
“I saw the flag needed to be fixed,” Raso said…
Part 2 of fixing the 🇺🇸 flag! As long as this country continues to have great men and women willing to step up to do what is right, we will always prevail. It doesn’t take many, it just takes a determined and convicted few. I believe with all my heart and soul there is a wave of patriots in this country growing in strength and confidence each day. While we watch parts of our country fall to mainstream confusion, complacency, and ignorance, there is a few that are willing to climb or stand or do what ever it takes. The greatest way to live is by our actions. EVERY SINGLE DAY we are given an opportunity. It’s a choice. We either take it or we don’t. I would have to say my favorite part of the day given that my last video has started to go viral, is the woman I had the pleasure to meet that simply said “God bless you”. “For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorance of foolish people.” 1 Peter 2:15 #thewilltofight
