There is no greater stage than that of the Olympics, a time and place that athletes train their whole lives for. But for U.S. Army Reserve 2nd LT Sam Kendricks, a sense of patriotic duty comes before anything else.

We’ve all seen the tip jars. They’re placed front and center on the counters of establishments where people want a little something extra for their efforts.

In an awesome video that ends with President Obama dropping the invisible mic in his hand, the POTUS and Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda teamed up for a freestyle on Monday.
