A group of Marines in their dress uniforms trudged through floodwaters near the Pentagon last week to help a stranded motorist. A torrential downpour had flooded a number of roads in the area, and the Marines pushed the car out.
In a video, a woman in the car says, "The Marines are going to help us?. . this is the most American thing ever." And in the comments, she added, "As an immigrant, we don't usually see these things in the country I grew up in."
