The most awesome video you will ever see that will make you say “Thanks”

I watched this run all day yesterday on Fox and MSNBC. Again and again and I could not get enough. It made me look to the Lord and say thanks. Thank you for these men and women. Thank you for those who gave their lives. Thank you for allowing me to be born in this country and call these men my brothers and the women my sisters. I think you will agree.

I posted early yesterday on the official end of combat operations in Iraq and the return of the last of our combat troops. It was such a big day. But nothing I can say will say it better than this. See if you agree.


More than 4000 gave their lives there. To all of you, those I know and those I don’t, thank you. And congratulations.

    I'm so happy that these soldiers are coming home and praying for their safe return.

    At the same time, I will never forget those who aren't returning.

    My prayers, also, that Iraq can maintain the fragile democracy that is now in place thanks to the hard work and dedication of the soldiers responsible for bringing it to their doorstep.  It will now be in their hands.

    God bless them.  God bless the families of those who aren't coming home.  May He watch over Iraq and let these sacrifices be worth it for them and for us.
