    Impressive (and a little scary). Godspeed, soldiers.

    Wow. That is powerful. Very moving and emotional. You can see the emotions in their faces.

    Being close to the Mountain Base (Ft. Carson) we see the USA Version too often.

    Far too often our memorial ceremonies and funerals lack emotion befitting the life of the departed. After more than a decade of continuous combat I still am proud to say that I get choked up at every one of our combat deaths. I sincerely believe that when I stop getting choked up it is time for me to move on.

    Doesn't matter what Country the fallen troops are from the fact that they died supporting us in Afghanistan makes me tear up knowing that their loved ones will be grieving their loss for eternity.

    I've done the funeral service for warriors, fallen in the line of duty.
    This haka would have been most fitting for them.

    Powerful yet spiritual all at the same time.

    What a beautiful tribute to a fallen fellow soldier.

    Wow!


    If someone was thinking of invading New Zealand, seeing this should change their mind, if they were smart.
    Such dedication and passion, it gave me goose bumps.
