Never leave a man behind: Marine helps boy finish 5K
When a 9-year-old boy asked "Sir, will you run with me please?" a 19-year-old Marine didn't hesitate to help.
Lance Cpl. Kerr was competing in the 5k at the Venetian Festival in Charlevoix, Michigan with some of his fellow Marines when the boy asked him to help him cross the finish line.
