I always considered myself to be pretty emotionless having dealt with the death of my mom at a young age and never having much luck in the relationship department...however, I found that my tear ducts still work just fine while watching this video.
God bless our soldiers...and thank you to all those who are serving (or have served) our country, especially our WF brothers and sisters

Did 3 tours in a jungle years ago had no idea how hard it was on the parents. Came back to the world after the first tour and didn't like this country very much. Didn't come back again till I was medevaced 2 years later and had no say in the matter. If I see someone that came back I always try to thank them and I mean it. Thank you to all that served and all that waited or are waiting.
AWE MAN REALLY!!!! The first little girl got me, and then the little girl sitting on Santas lap telling her in a mad little tone that she missed him and loved him...DONE!! I've been on several deployments and stationed in Japan for 2 years, the coming homes were always the best part of being in. The families have it so much harder than we do IMO.
A computer beat me at chess once, but it was no match for my kickboxing skills.
That's pure emotion right there, ain't it? Totally undiluted, 100% strong.
Nice post. I had seen that girl in the classroom before, and it's amazing that a 10-15 second clip could make me tear up.
Did you see the one where the returning Guard had to stand around at attention in a room while they made speeches? Family on one side practically stomping in anticipation, and the Guard all at attention on the other side of the room? That video was driving me crazy. I was practically yelling at the screen for the guy to shut the hell up and release them.
