We had this on here before, I believe. I read the other day that it was made by a 15 year old girl.

To all our troops, wherever you are, this American is very proud of you and supports you.

Great video. Thanks Ian!

MOVING

Kini on April 14, 2007 at 6:34 PM

Okay, you made me cry.. now I have to go call my brother..

Viper1 on April 14, 2007 at 6:35 PM

Oh Man, I sure wish them home well.

Babs on April 14, 2007 at 6:38 PM

And the democrat party is doing everything it can to encourage and embolden the enemies who are trying to kill them.

Labamigo on April 14, 2007 at 6:44 PM

Wiping away tears as I type…….

To every United States and Coalition soldier, I need you, I miss you, I want you to win, I want you to come home safe to your loved one’s and family, I am proud of you, I support you, I will fight for you, I LOVE You.

To every Democrat Politician and Main Stream Media outlet that has emboldened our enemy and wish the death of more soldiers just to score a political victory over President Bush, you can go straint to HELL.

PinkyBigglesworth on April 14, 2007 at 7:09 PM

Get a good look at them, as these wonderful Americans are a vanishing breed. Doubt it? Read America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It by Mark Steyn

petefrt on April 14, 2007 at 7:12 PM

I would like to see Fox TV get a hold of the video and show this during one of the ad breaks of American Idol on Tuesday. America needs to see this a few times around the networks.

Watch, American haters like Nancy Pelosi and her ilk might scream about this, but hey, this is who is fighting for us.

StuLongIsland on April 14, 2007 at 7:15 PM

This was the only thread I had time to watch, I picked the right one. A big thanks to my heroes in uniform.

infidel on April 14, 2007 at 7:35 PM

God Bless and thank you all our military personnel and please remember them in your prayers…..It was prayer that helped us while our son was in Iraq…

Great video

robo on April 14, 2007 at 7:35 PM

They have always been and will always be in my heart. I cannot imagine what we would do without them. I could not be any prouder.

Glynn on April 14, 2007 at 7:43 PM

Yup, this video has been around the block a few times, so to speak.

Doesn’t mean it shouldn’t make several more trips though.

:)

Vinnie on April 14, 2007 at 7:44 PM

Thanks Ian, tears on my birthday…

Pinky said it best, to paraphrase: To all our troops and coalition troops, we do need you, we do support you, we miss you, we will fight with the Congress to support you, we pray for your safe return, we love you, and boy o boy are we proud of you!

Zorro on April 14, 2007 at 7:54 PM

One of the best Iv’e seen. Thanks

Texyank on April 14, 2007 at 8:13 PM

That makes me feel even prouder of my two oldest sons, a Soldier and a Marine.

And it makes it even harder not to hate Pelosi and the other Democrats, etc., who continue to vote to make the targets on my sons backs even larger.

Doghouse on April 14, 2007 at 8:14 PM

I had not seen that. Thanks

kahall on April 14, 2007 at 8:45 PM

*salutes*

I served my country once and I fully support those serving now. We owe then AT LEAST that much.

Yakko77 on April 14, 2007 at 9:03 PM

“Hat tip Dan?” Ian, I figured you saw it at my site when I posted it 2 DAYS AGO. :)

Capitalist Infidel on April 14, 2007 at 9:09 PM

Every once in awhile I pass by people in uniform in the grocery store and elsewhere, or people with veterans’ hats, bumper stickers, etc. I always want to stop them and thank them for serving. But I’m always too shy to actually do it. I meet their eyes, smile, and nod, but I’ve never actually said aloud that I am proud of them and I’m glad they serve. I think I’m ready to do it if it really helps them to know that a complete stranger supports what they do.

aero on April 14, 2007 at 9:24 PM

aero, I try to never miss a chance to thank them for their service. I almost always get a “Thank you for your support” in return, and always at least a “Thank you, sir,” as if I was deserving of thanks from them.

I’m always grateful for other people who show appreciation for our military, because it might be one of my sons that they are showing support for. So, thank you to those of you who support my sons!

Doghouse on April 14, 2007 at 9:57 PM

One of my close friends has done two tours as a Marine in Iraq. He’s been home for awhile, his wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, and he’s getting called up for a third tour. It’s gut wrenching to think he may be going over for a third time.

But you know what? He’s got a big smile on his face, keeps working at his job, and never says a word about it to me.

God Bless these brave men and women.

Vincenzo on April 14, 2007 at 10:29 PM

Thank you to every man and woman in uniform, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

NeverSubmit on April 14, 2007 at 10:37 PM

Doghouse on April 14, 2007 at 8:14 PM

Thanks to you and your sons. God bless you all. My two youngest sons are a sailor and a soldier. The sailor leaves monday for the gulf.

csdeven on April 14, 2007 at 10:56 PM

What a beautiful video.
My daughter is a United States Marine currently serving in Iraq. May God bless and keep all who serve.

calnevari on April 14, 2007 at 10:58 PM

God Bless Them, Every One. Most of us aren’t worth their spit.

Thank you to the Men and Women of the United States Armed Forces.

Press on. To Victory.

First time I’ve seen it; it needs to be seen a lot more.

aero on April 14, 2007 at 9:24 PM

aero,

Don’t hesitate to look straight in their eyes, grab their hand, and tell them you appreciate their service and you greatly appreciate it. I do it every opportunity I get.

Every single one thanks me back and smiles and walks a little taller. They need to hear it from average people on the street or wherever they happen to be. Don’t miss a chance to support them directly with a kind and enthusiastic word of thanks.

They are spectacular and they deserve our gratitude, love, and respect.

techno_barbarian on April 14, 2007 at 11:31 PM

Thank you too all our men and women in uniform for your service.

EnochCain on April 14, 2007 at 11:57 PM

It means more than you will ever know, it happened to me again yesterday.

Sven on April 15, 2007 at 12:26 AM

Thank you Ian. Every American needs to feel like Lizzie Palmer, and for those who don’t, you aren’t American.

It’s hard to watch the last two minutes. Having to see one brother in arms put in the dirt is too many, and I’ve seen much more than one. God bless all who serve, and let them never feel alone.

Sven on April 15, 2007 at 12:26 AM

Well, I feel really bad now for all the missed opportunities I’ve had to thank men and women in uniform. Please know, Sven and others, that a smile and a nod is a shy person’s way of saying “Thanks” as well. :-) I will not hesitate from now on to let these folks know in no uncertain terms that I am thankful that they volunteer to serve our great country and fight for freedom around the world.

You who volunteer for the armed services are the real heroes. Thank you.

aero on April 15, 2007 at 11:17 AM

aero,

Please know that we were in no way chastising you for your shyness, God love ya. Just encouraging you to not be afraid of openly showing our Troops and Veterans how you really feel.

It’ll make your day. I promise.

And I screwed up my comment above. It should’ve read:

I was in downtown Dallas the other day and greeted and thanked a razor sharp-looking uniformed soldier walking across the street. At first I could see that he went into threat assessment mode (happens a lot, as I’m a big ugly son of a gun), but when he figured out I was sincere he instantly relaxed and heartily thanked me.

They know that a great many in this country don’t support them, and I know they’re on guard for verbal attacks by the hard-core lefties.

I also thank Police and Fire Fighters every chance I get. Those who protect and defend us deserve our support.

techno_barbarian on April 15, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I’m proud of you, and very indebted to you, and I’m disgusted at some of us. We don’t even deserve to tie your shoes. You are the superior ones, and many of us take you and what you do for granted.

Hopefully it will never be too late…

Entelechy on April 15, 2007 at 3:28 PM

………………. thank you lizzie palmer……..

ctmom on April 15, 2007 at 8:34 PM

Here’s the link to her bio page, I guess she’s a high school student. She has several other tribute videos to her credit as well…

RustMouse on April 16, 2007 at 12:56 PM

whoops, I guess links are off here -

you can find her page by doing a search for flutiecutie at YouTube…
