As the handle broke on Andrew’s cymbals, they went tumbling to the ground, creating a loud crashing noise. Of course, the audience couldn’t help but direct their attention to the embarrassed teen.

Even Andrew’s bandmates were giving him a look of panic, almost as if they were wondering how on earth he was going to recover from this. But — Andrew decided to do something that would wow the crowd.

Instead of picking up the cymbals, he decided to turn around to the flag and give a full salute. The teen held his salute until the Star Spangled Banner came to an end.

How amazing is this guy?! Please SHARE this patriotic teen’s moment on Facebook!

It was a quick and glorious recovery. We admire you, Andrew!
