A member of the U.S. Army Honor Guard dramatically passed out and fell to the floor in front of Barack Obama during the president’s farewell speech to the armed services. The guard member was pictured lying crumpled on the floor next to the feet his fellow service members in Arlington, Virginia on Wednesday.
The guard is believed to have fainted as Obama addressed the armed services at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall where he was giving his final salute before he leaves office. It is not clear what happened to the guard. Obama had earlier thanked the military personnel for their service and sacrifice. He said there is ‘no greater privilege and no greater honor’ than serving as commander in chief. Obama also called for a smooth handover of control of the U.S. military to incoming commander in chief Donald Trump.
