    Another tribute for our boys.

    Ok, I know we have had several ''support our troops'' pics and vids, but this was one I had not personally seen. So yes, another, but I do not tire of seeing them.

    It is 16.5Mb so quite large but if you grab it - view and enjoy and as I did, give thanks once more for all our guys out there. I'd like to think they are in our thoughts daily.

    Very good vid, well worth the watch.
    The last bit of pics were somewhat touching.

    The pictures of the soldiers coming home to their kids were impressive, but I liked the Iraqi woman with the signs best.

    Great vid, always ready to see some pictures of ordinary Americans who also happen to be the biggest badasses I've ever seen. Not to crazy about the fallen G.I.'s on the plane though, that should not be photographed IMO.

    I disagree, America needs to see what these brave men and women are willing to give to keep us free. Any Americans lost is a tradigity, but we have been at war for some time and have only lost 2500 or so soldiers by the end of WWII we had lost over 400,000 American soldiers, things have greatly improved. War is Hell and these images need to be shown and show again so noone forgets the sacrficaces these brave men ans momen are makong for our freedom.

    God bless them and there isn't a day that goes by when I don't think about what they are going through and I wish I could be there with them.

    To all that gave the ultimate sacriface I SALUTE you, and prey for your family as you are what it takes to keep us living our normal lives.

    I Salute all those who have served in the military as well as you have proven yourselves worthy of being called a American.

    I was just saying pictures should come after their families have had a chance to say goodbye, just my personal opinion. Although losing a single soldier is a tragedy, the number of fatalities so far is nothing like previous wars.

    I agree with everything said so far.
    Bruce, I think that there was an old Roman saying "either come back with your shield or on it."
    To many people today don't understand the concept. A free society depends on the military to protect it from foreign threats. When people find way to dishonor soldiers it's a real shame.

    I'll admit something to you guys, everytime I watch these tributes it brings a slight tear to my eyes cause I so much want to be over there.
    My Family has fought in every conflict we have had so far, and when I went to sign up all was well till I went to MEPS and I failed teh physical 2 different times, once cause I made the mistake of mentioning what the scar on my knee was from (I tore my knee open with a chain saw and when they fixed me up, it got infected and they had to end up taking my knee cap out and scrapping the infection, or what ever was growing on it off) and I have arthritus in that knee quite badly. The second time was cause of a curveature of teh spine condition I have.
    So now I just support our troops, I have sent care packages, books, CD's, and around christmass time I donated $50 to a orginazation who was putting together smalll christmass trees for different companys.
