NFL teams and celebrities have been taking a knee all week long, but a military veteran's kneel on Wednesday caught everyone's attention.

Marvin Boatright kneeled while carrying a folded American flag and wearing his American Legion cap as President Trump drove by in his motorcade on the way to a speech on tax reform in Indiana.

The moment was captured in a photo and has been circulating online since the patriotic protest.
