Although I spent half my working life in the US I grew up in Canada where most folks are insulated from the reality of American history although we were nonetheless inundated with US television and Hollywood movies. Canada is very fortunate to have such a strong and vigilant neighbor. The video for me was very moving and speaks for Canadians as well who have participated in the defence of our way of life. Thanks Troy.
That is very true as I have worked along side the Canadian Army... Thanks Eh!

I don't have sound on my computer at work (and it's a brand new one) :mad: I'll watch this at home. My father was career Navy and served in WWII, Korea, and early stages of the Vietnam War. I'm definitely interested in seeing the vid.

That was amazing! Almost everyone in my entire family including myself served and had it not been for the military I would not be the man I am today; most likely be in jail.

Thanks Again..Mike

I am South African by birth but one of the greatest days of my humble life was when I was granted my US Citizenship! Few countries on this planet have sacrificed so much for the gift of "Freedom."

To all the Veterans​

THANK YOU!​

Thanks for sharing Predator... Reminds me that I have had almost all of my family in the military all the way back to General Ambrose E. Burnside, the Civil War, (yes he is the one that the sideburns are named after)... May actually go back further, but that's the most famous one that I know about... Interesting video though and hope that you come back to the states soon. Speaking of which, have you run into X_Kiowa_X while you are out there or are you guys stationed in different areas? Just curious...

Predator is stationed about 20 minutes South of me by air, I put in a thread before that if he was up this way <Balad> to let me know and we would hook up, but never seen nothing so figured that he didn't see it. I have done some traveling very often and even down to his location, but I'm done now since I leave in about 10-12 days.

WOW!! That almost bought me to tears. I'm a Viet Nam era vet...never made it to the battle ground but was more than willing. Thank you Predator. It never hurts to be reminded that you and others like you are fighting for us...and willing to "give all" if necessary. My sincerest thoughts are with you and all our fighting men and women. God bless you all.....

The Canadians were one of the first countries to join the US in our war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq!

Predator... Thank you for sharing this video with all of us. I would like to get the direct link for this so I can send it out to those that where there to let them know we have not forgotten... and to send it to those that have to try and enlighten them on what has been sacrificed for them to have the rights to stand up and speak freely or act poorly as the case may be, to those that have sacrificed their lives for us.

Very Touching... Thanks again.

I thought I replied back :D Sorry, I have no plans of going to Balad... sorry.

CB Fury, I don't know if you can download that video off of YouTube. I would write the person that posted it to see if they can send you a copy :cool:

I am an Army Viet Nam Veteran, and it nice to see that the military and the people that serve are appreciated once again. My return home was a time I would rather forget. I later joined and retired from the U S Navy Submarine Force, and I would do it again! Thanks so much for sharing that, it did bring a tear to my eye.

WOW, that gave me goosebumps... A video like this makes me want to join the forces! Just want to say thanks to all the past and present men and women that are or have fought for our country and allowed us to be the BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! THANK YOU!
