WATERLOO (KWWL) -

With every honk and every wave, Steve Miller of Waterloo and his group hoped their message was pretty clear.

"I hope that they understand what it means to be a true American," said Miller.

Chattanooga may be hundreds of miles away, but it hit close to home for Miller.

After watching the news about the shooting of five service members, Miller wanted to do something.

"It happened right here in our own country," he said. "That really just bothers me to my core."

He couldn't go to the city, so he decided to hold his American flag off of 218 in Waterloo on Monday.

"I'm with them people in Chattanooga that are standing in front of that recruiting office," he said. "I would go stand at Crossroads Mall right now, but it's private property."

Miller wasn't in the military, but he's had several other family members who have served. He says no matter what, we're are all Americans.
