I would assume that he's probably in that wheelchair because he fought under those very colors he's honoring or he's old enough to remember that those colors mean far more than just decoration.

Duty, Honor, Country!

Those words still have meaning to an ever dwindling few of us.

May God bless the man standing in front of the wheelchair!

Those words still have meaning to an ever dwindling few of us.He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.

This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:*
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

Henry V, Act 4, Scene 3

* make him a member of the gentry, even if he is a commoner


Thank God that a "few" have always been enough.

God Bless The Greatest Country On Earth And Those Few Who Defend Her!

Heroes will always appear at the proper time in history, imho.
