Watch: Matthew Betley Delivers Heartfelt Memorial Day Speech

Matthew Betley, author of the hit debut novel Overwatch, is more than just a writer. Betley is also a former Marine, making him uniquely qualified to speak about the true meaning of Memorial Day, which he did when he delivered the keynote address on Monday at an American Legion Post honoring the national holiday. 

With more than two hundred veterans and their families in attendance, Betley gave an honest, emotional speech that must be watched in order to be fully appreciated. Scroll down and hit play, just make sure you have a tissue handy.

(Warning: There is a high probability that watching this video will make you want to wrap yourself in the American flag and sing the Star-Spangled Banner at the top of your lungs!)
