Soldiers Coming Home Video – If You Don’t Tear Up at This, You Ain’t Human!

While sorting through the daily blogs and news sites this morning, I visited The Other McCain (as usual). For those of you that have not had the pleasure of meeting Stacy McCain and his faithful sidekick Smitty, you have missed a treat. I was fortunate enought to meet them both at CPAC this year.

Well, Smitty has posted a video he promises will extract tears from Chuck Norris. I don’t know about Chuck, but for this Navy Vet, I must admit an abnormally large amount of liquid in my eyes.

I was single my entire enlistment, so my experience with homecomings while a sailor are purely vicarious. But I am a sap when I see the tears of joy from a child seeing their military parent return after a long absence and surprise them.

None of the people in this video were aware that their loved one was returning. Grab a box of Kleenex and click play:

      Tears of joy, Sean. Any veteran knows what that feels like. It is a joyous occasion when it is expected, but pure, raw emotion when it is unexpected. I think this video helps people realize that our soldiers are human. Sometimes people forget the sacrifice.

      You and I never will.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
