One cannot help but be moved by this. Thanks for sharing.
Impressive (and a little scary). Godspeed, soldiers.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
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.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
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.
Very moving and it seems like a good way to mourn a warriors passing
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Loyalty to a fallen bro...Outstanding… some will never understand it and to other all too well..
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.

A Warrior’s send off, impressive.

Powerful yet spiritual all at the same time.
What a beautiful tribute to a fallen fellow soldier.

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.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
