In the photo from Saturday, Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff Tiffany Dial stands in the rain saluting as a man stands behind her holding an umbrella over her.
Meghan Blankenship witnessed the interaction and said the man stood there for well over 30 minutes.
"It brought tears to my eyes," Blackenship said, [for him] "to show that much respect and love for another individual."
Dial said the man didn't say a word to her, and when she turned around he was gone.
