He’s wearing the full formal Dress Blue uniform of a Marine Corps sergeant, and he has medals for service in Iraq and Afghanistan pinned to his chest.
But Christian Jacobs is not a Marine. He’s just four years old, standing at the grave of his father, Sgt Christopher James Jacob, on the day when America remembers its fallen heroes.
Christian Jacobs and his mother, Brittany Jacobs, visited the grave of Sgt Christopher James Jacobs, who served one tour in Afghanistan and one in Iraq, in Arlington National Cemetery on Monday.
For Memorial Day Commemorations, they came bearing flowers, cards and photographs, and Christian had lain on the ground next to his father’s tombstone, at section 60 of the cemetery.
‘I hope for you to come back soon, daddy. And I love you and hope for you to be here. I know you will be here and I love you. And he is always watching over me and makes sure – he’s proud of me, daddy. And I love you daddy,’ Christian said.
