    Wow, just wow, thanks so much for sharing that Salty

    I watched the entire thing, it was absolutely amazing:usaflagwa

    I agree:usaflagwa

    I think so to Hatcher:usaflagwa

    Yep

    It gave me chills to see that

    I agree

    I agree with you Hatcher, I tell people whenever I see them thanks. We have a local unit over there now, two of the men are daddies of some day care kids, so I know them pretty good. A few others are kids that my kids went to school with. I worry about them all the time.

    I would like to thank all the brave men and women who are serving and protecting our great country. Thank you for all that you do. I am praying that you come home safe. GOD BLESS YOU.:usaflagwa

    We get military escorts at work off flights. I always remove my hat and say a little prayer.

    A few weeks ago I pushed back an airplane before the escort left a United flight. As we came to our stop point the escort was moving but stopped since all vehicle ground movement gives way to aircraft. I asked the captain to hold so I could signal the escort to move past us and he agreed...then he switched on all landing lights and extended all flaps as a salute.

    Wow. A powerful story.

    I'm a Vietnam Vet and it makes me so proud to see that our veterans and those serving today get the honor and recognition they so richly deserve.

    Thanks for posting Salty. Moving video and a beautiful song as accompaniment, I had never heard it before. On the weekend of our great nation's birthday, I say God bless all of our soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen, past and present, living and deceased, for protecting our freedom.
