On Memorial Day, Christian Jacobs, then just four years old, paid a visit to Arlington National Cemetery with his family. While there, he took the time to leave a note for his father, which later went viral on the internet. Find out what the youngster had to say.

Memorial Day is observed annually in the United States as a day to remember the men and women who gave their lives while serving in the armed forces of the United States of America. Many people went to the Arlington National Cemetery in 2015 to pay their respects to the service members who had passed away there.

However, photographs taken during a visit to Arlington Cemetery by a mother and her kid made it into the news. Christian Jacobs, age four, paid a visit to the cemetery to pay his respects at the grave of his father while dressed in a copy of his father’s Marine Corps outfit.

Christian and his mother, Brittany Jacobs, had suffered a tragic loss four years before to that Memorial Day when Sergeant Christopher James Jacobs, a father and husband, passed away. He passed away as a result of an accident that occurred while training when his kid was just eight months old.

Christian never knew his father, but he never missed an opportunity to pay a visit to the cemetery where he was buried. Brittany shared with WBRC that her kid was eager to learn more about his father and was looking forward to their upcoming trip to Arlington.

At the burial of the boy’s father, a Marine, the boy pleaded, “Come back, Daddy:

Because of his joy, Christian felt compelled to record an emotional message for his father, which later became widely shared online. The little boy’s message was as follows:

“I miss you already, daddy, and I can’t wait till you get here again. In addition, I adore you and I really want to see you here. I adore you and I am certain that you will be here. And he is constantly keeping an eye on me and making sure he is proud of what I have accomplished.

Christopher will be remembered fondly by his family and the people of the United States for the rest of their lives. His last words to his wife and kid were “I love you guys.” Former President Barack Obama of the United States was also there to pay his respects to the slain service members.

Two years after Christian Jacobs made news, Mason and Mylan Brazel went viral after visiting their father’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery for the first time during the 2017 National Memorial Day holiday. Christian Jacobs had made headlines two years before to Mason and Mylan’s visit.

On July 31, 2017, five months after he was diagnosed with rectal cancer, the boys’ father, Alfred Brazel, passed away as a result of Stage IV rectal cancer. Like a result, they came to the conclusion that the best way to honor their deceased father was to go to Virginia and spend time with him there, just as he did while he was still living. Kait Brazel, Mason and Mylan’s mother, shared the following with People:

They lay down and had a conversation with him, during which they disclosed what was going on in their own lives. After that, Mylan informed him that he desired to snooze along with him.

Brazel said that she was pleased with how her boys carried themselves when they were there. Even if it was stated that the boys could not communicate with their father, it meant everything to watch them go on with their lives while his headstone was nearby.

She said that most relatives of soldiers and women buried in Arlington lived far away and were unable to visit the cemetery, so the fact that she and her boys were able to go to Arlington to pay their respects at Alfred’s tomb was a gift.
