America's most patriotic dude waves Old Glory in every state, makes video

While most people display their patriotism by eating hot dogs the Fourth, or throwing not-at-all ironic Flag Day parties, or tearing up during Chevy Silverado commercials, one proud Texan showed his American pride by visiting all 50 states, and then waving the Stars and Stripes in front of monuments, landmarks, and national treasures in every... single... one.

The nationwide adventure took one year, 9 months, and 2 days, and he captured it all on video; thankfully condensing it into a 90-second montage certain to evoke a sense of national pride not conveyed on film since Stallone dropped Drago or Russell made his speech in Miracle. Yea, he brings the flag-waving strong.
