    Only those who have served will feel compelled to watch it to the end.

    To each and every one of you.

    Thanks, Matt. Brought tears to my eyes, especially when I thought of absent friends I served with.

    I have not served in the military. My dad was a Marine. Many of my friend and relatives were and are. I found this little vignette to be very touching. And can only imagine the emotions that go along with the message.

    Well, what better way to start out a Saturday morning at 5:15 am than to sit infront of my monitor with tears runnin down my face....

    Thanks for that Matt, it truly was a great video clip...

    Every week or so, the local Marine detachement has a free car wash at the Sonic parking lot.... I make it my duty that when I drive by them standing on the side of the road with their handmade signs saying Free Car Wash to yell out my open window "GO NAVY!"...

    Most of em look at me with looks of confusion on their faces.... One day, they too will understand what it all means...

    Personally, I think it's fine if a member of one service playfully teases a member of another. I work with Marine, Navy, and Army vets, and we all jokingly insult each other, but it's okay as we all share the same "family" bond.
