Three Maine roofers stand for the playing of the national anthem.

The picture was taken by Michelle Lyons Cossar.

The roofers placed their hands across their chests as the anthem boomed through the town.

"This is what I saw...three men roofing a house and respecting the flag", she wrote.

Cossar, who was at the game to cheer on her nephew, snapped a quick photo and posted it to Facebook.

The men could hear the anthem play due to the proximity of the home to the school.

Since Cossar posted the image it has been shared almost 700 times.

"It is a respect thing for myself-we did not do this to prove a point", Harrison said.

The men in the photo are identified as Dwayne Harrison, Danny Thyng, and James Scruggs, according to Cossar.

Shanon Gurski Dixon told WMTW she hopes a national personality will see the photo and honor the men for their patriotism.

Standing for the anthem has become a controversial issue in the National Football League, as more players in recent months knelt during the anthem to protest police brutality against minorities.

Standing during the national anthem, particularly before a football game, has become a hot-button issue after President Donald Trump attacked NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem as a protest against racial inequality and police brutality.
