On Thursday, a former Navy SEAL climbed to the top of a flag pole after noticing the American flag had broken loose and was hanging off the side of the pole.

Dom Raso, a former SEAL, shared a video to Instagram which shows him climbing the flag pole to clip the flags loose end, and fix the flags positioning.

“This was my fourth attempt at trying to get up and fix the flag,” Raso wrote on Instagram. “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 us all was something I wasn’t just going to pass by.”

“This flag pole climb reminded me about EVERYTHING in life,” he added.

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!
