Default Best commercial of the year!

Any multi generation vets out there that remember coming home? Or vets that have a child serving now? This makes me work at holding my bearing a little bit. Not a word spoken. none needed.

Not many people can understand the bond these days, since so many don't experience the military any more.

My son wants join military one day. Being down range never bothered me. Thought of my only son being down range someday kind of does. I am quite sure I had it better than family sitting at home worrying about me. Of course that was back before the days of Skype and email while deployed.

How is it on those of you with kids deployed now?

I saw an interesting analysis on line the other day evaluating the percentage of combat vs non-combat troops in various wars. Early on, it was heavily more combat, later on, less than half were combat troops.

This is a great commercial. I noticed there were no overpaid celebrities.

His needed more than that, he used the embed link instead of the regular viewing link.

Thank god, because if I'd given someone technical help and it worked, it would start getting really cold, like everywhere.
