Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry was grilled by the Senate on Energy and Natural Resources on Thursday as he made his best case to prove he’s the best man to run the Department of Energy under President Donald Trump.

However, it wasn’t what he said at the meeting that gripped the world, but the object on his wrist that symbolized his patriotism and respect for our great nation. He truly is the man for the job, and there’s no denying that Trump has built quite a team!!

VIA| The bracelet on Perry’s wrist is engraved with the name Colton W. Rusk. You may also notice the letters “USMC,” which stands for U.S. Marine Corps.

A quick Google search of the name shines light on the former Texas governor’s silent tribute for a fallen Marine.

Marine Pfc. Colton W. Rusk, of Orange Grove, Texas, was killed in combat on Dec. 6, 2010, in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.

Rusk clearly had a special bond with his mother.

Colton Rusk’s brother, Brady, told Independent Journal Review that his family gave Gov. Perry the bracelet roughly six years ago. The fact that he’s still wearing it means a lot to the family.

“Seeing Gov. Perry still wear that bracelet that we gave to him many years ago, and to wear it to something so important reminds me that Colton’s memory will live on forever in people’s hearts,” Brady told IJR.

Rusk always dreamed of joining the Marines — and he signed up as soon as he graduated Orange Grove High School in 2009.

To the very end, Rusk stayed true to his motto:

“Don’t be afraid to go after your hopes and dreams, but don’t be afraid to be willing to pay the price.”

The’s the message Rusk wrote under his senior photo, according to the Corpus Christi Caller Times.

Perry is not shy when it comes to openly supporting military veterans. That’s why it was no surprise when legendary Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, the author of “Lone Survivor,” was in attendance at his confirmation hearing on Thursday.
