Viral photo captures baseball fan holding umbrella over JROTC member in rain

A photo tweeted out by the Atlanta Braves of a fan holding an umbrella over a JROTC member in the rain is going viral.



According to WSB, the picture was taken during the recognition of the POW-MIA Chair of Honor in the third inning at Suntrust Park in Atlanta on Memorial Day.

As of 9:00 p.m., the photo had nearly 3,000 retweets.

The station says that during the ceremony, a Parkview High School U.S. Marine Corps JROTC member stood next to the chair in the rain. A fan wearing a red raincoat opened his umbrella and held it above the student to protect him from the rain.
