This is how veterans are helping disaster victims
The world continues to celebrate the triumphant rescue of a soccer team trapped inside a cave.
A photo of the four Thai Navy SEALs who stayed with the soccer team in the cave has gone viral after being shared on the SEALs’ Facebook page. The photo has been shared over 89,000 times at the time of writing, and has racked up a whopping 509,000 likes.
“All 4 Thai Navy SEALs came out safely,” said the Thai Navy SEALs caption.
The SEALs waited until every member of the soccer team was rescued from the cave before returning to safety and have since been hailed as heroes.
The photo’s caption also says, “Hooyah Hooyah Hooyah,” which, according to CBS News, is an expression of excitement popular among SEALs.
Nothing like being reminded that heroes exist in the midst of chaos.
Sadly, one former Navy SEAL died while attempting to rescue the 12 boys and their coach, who were trapped in the cave for over two weeks.
