WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — A group of soldiers from Colorado recently returned home after serving in Afghanistan. They were met with a great surprise.
Police officers from Colorado Springs Police Department stopped their motorcycles and even stopped traffic to let the group of buses carrying the soldiers simultaneously return them to their drop-off destination. As they were returning, the officers saluted the soldiers who are with the 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.
Rhea Ramsey Taylor was driving when she noticed the salute that was happening. She immediately recorded it on film, and her video has received over 1 million views on Facebook.
"It’s a great positive way to recognize our police officers and welcome home our troops," Taylor says as she recounts what happened that day.
She says she had no idea this would occur as she was driving.
"I helped a friend move, and I was heading home when I saw all of the flashing lights," Taylor said.
