Why in the hell are we STILL in Afghan or Iraq? Our new Prez said we would be out of there in 6 months or less.

3:21, go fuck yourself.

I think the video says more about the importance of the family more than anything else. What about those kids the are born never knowing their dad or maybe even worse a dad who doesn't care.

Pray for those who didn't come home, and their families.

God Bless Our Troops!!!

3:21 you need to pick another country to live in, you are a poor excuse for an American. This was a very moving video as our family got word today that one of our family members will not be coming home from Afghanistan.

I cried one time when I thought I'd look cool in a crew cut and I looked stoopid and couldn't do anything about it.

If anyone can get through that without breaking down, then they are truly cold-hearted.

God Bless Our Troops and Their Families!

I'm not being facetious when I say I really did cry through the whole movie. It was really very touching.

3:21, Can you speak Arabic? I didn't think so. You can thank an American soldier.

Great video and a reminder of how much the children of our service men and women sacrifice also.

I'm sure I would cry too if I watched it......I had constant tears while watching "Taking Chance" but I still just don't support the military-industrial complex thing our wars have grown in to.

And in other news, has there ever been a trifecta in natural gas pipeline explosions? We're nigh on to one in Texas........number two was today, about 270 miles some direction from Lubbock.

Dago;For 3.21.I like soldiers!They lose their lives while taking others so your kind can live a life you don't deserve.

Wow, I cried on the very first one. And as a few others said, sometimes we forget about the kids who are living without their mommy or daddy and this can be such a cruel world. God Bless our Troops and their families.

I am fairly certain soldiers do not care a lot for you and your thankless ilk but US troops still sacrifice time with their families and put life and limb on the line for you to voice your asinine opinion. Obviously, there will never come a day when you have someone who loves you enough to be brought to tears when you return home.

The children got me the worst. I can't imagine what those youngsters go through when they're old enough to understand what could happen to their parent while he/she's deployed. The utter joy and relief is so apparent on their faces the moment they see their soldier.

Dear. Mz: you are correct. I wouldn't join the military for any amount of money or glory. I don't believe in war and I don't believe in participating in it. Those who do are murderers in my opinion, and yours doesn't really matter to me. Had I been a male in the 60's and been drafted, I would be living in Canada now, and yes, these days with our government, I'm considering that's not a bad option still. You people's opinion really won't change mine, as I've had this opinion of war and the military since the vietnam mess and will have it till I die.

Of course, there is nothing anyone can say to change your mind, you are a self-righteous idiot.

Keep in mind, it is war and the threat of war that has allowed you the RIGHT to maintain and voice your lame-brained opinion.

Without war, the US would still be a second rate colony of the British. Without war, the US would have been conquered by the Japanese and divvied-up with Nazi Germany. Without the threat of war, the US would have been conquered by the USSR. Go ahead and try, one more time, convincing people, who know better, that war is not a necessary evil and YOU have not personally benefited from the men and women who have sacrificed MUCH.

Incidentally, based on the information you have provided about yourself, Canada would not have you.

3:21 You are a triple douche bag.

The video in general was beautiful.
Too funny. Two or three years ago, I dated the woman at the 3:54 mark (red hat). I'm hoping that soldier isn't/wasn't her husband.

Watching this video was hard for me to do. It evoked a lot of emotions and brought back memories that I have tried to put in the back of my mind for a long time. Being the child of a soldier I remember what it was like when he would be deployed for a year or more overseas while we stayed stateside. Thank God we were not at war at that time! It was hard enough on my mom to take care of my brother and me by herself without the added worry that my dad might die in combat. She'd already been throught that once when he was in Vietnam.

For those of you that disagree with war and the military...you don't have to leave this country or curl up and die, etc., but you could acknowledge and appreciate that someone else is willing and able to defend our country and that their families make sacrifices as well. They at least deserve some respect for what they do for this country. You're a small person if you can't look beyond your own beliefs and ideals to understand that. No one asked you to agree with the concept of war or military at all. I shudder to think what condition we would be in as a nation without our military men and women.

I tried not to cry, I really did. Didn't even grab tissues. So, I ended up wiping my tears and runny nose on my shirt sleeve. Thanks barry now i'm wearing a wet shirt. Amazing video, God bless the troops and bring them home! Thank you and your families for the sacrifices you make for us.

Very touching. Brought back so many memories of my significant other coming home after a 16 month deployment in Afghanistan. The tears are still streaming! It's rare to see true human emotion in anything these days and this video accurately portrays it!
