    I think I lasted 3-4 seconds before the tears started. Amazing video. I love it…will share it!

    Thanks to all you service men and women. Glad proud to be Canadian!

  • Torgny

    Great movie. But I wonder, why do ppl have to go away in the first place. Stop the war, less killing, less said kids !

  • bobbi

    omg i was crying right away. I remember the days of meeting my dad at the pier to greet his ship coming home and how excited I was waiting to see him. The nights spent watching the news to make sure his name wasnt on the list of men killed that day in Viet Nam. He surprised us one time and when we got home from school he was there after being gone for 9 months. I wish i could hug him not but he has passed on. Thanks for the chance to see this. Now my daughter is in the Navy and when i get to see her makes me cry so hard that she is home safe. God bless all our service men and women and their families.

    Wow! I was bawling by the first reunion!

  • anon

    8:30 for me. Must be cuz I'm single and have no kids. I'll take the challenge again one day once I have a kid.

    I felt provoked by the "100% chance to cry within first 30 seconds" in the description, and started watching video to prove it wrong.

    I cried within first 10 seconds.

  • Tom S. Fox

    I watched the entire video and didn’t cry JUST TO PROVE YOU PRESUMPTUOUS ASSHOLES WRONG!!!

  • Liza Pavs

    • A HERO

      Title of the vid is "SOLDIERS" returning home, jack ass. Never says anything about a hero, BUT! Anyone who volunteers to serve any country to defend it IS A HERO. If you think that soldiers in Europe are not "heros" unless they do any thing more than volunteer to protect your worthless ass then you are just that…a worthless ass.

      "A HERO" is right, it never said anything about 'American hero.' The idea is common people being reunited with their children — children who don't give a rat's @SS about why Mommy or Daddy are away. See, we Americans understood that. But I don't doubt that it takes more to make a hero in Europe. Let's see:
      France: Wine and cheese! Oh, and we surrender!
      Spain: It's too hot to fight, let's have a siesta.
      Netherlands: Umm . . . is my hair too long to fit under my beret? How about my beard?
      Britain: fuck you fuck fuck yfuck you fuck you fuck fyou fuck you fucking fyou fudking fucking . . .
      Ireland: . . . . . . . . . . . . .
      Italy: Que? Que stai dicendo?
      Balkans (pick one): Who do we hate this year . . . I mean, week . . . I mean, today . . . I mean, um, . . . no, I was NOT in Sarajevo in '92 . . .
      Germany: I just killed a Jew! Iron Cross? Oh wait . . . he was a Russian? Scheiss!
      Denmark: You know, our ancestors might have been VIKINGS!!!!!!
      Baltic States (pick one): Hey, guys, you know we are NOT still SOCIALIST!!!! GODDAMMIT!!!!!!!!
      Hungary: akdjaidlaknlaknflkan;kf akd;kalkjflkieioionakd; i4ea;lakydacicialke;kjtt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Sweden: Just . . . just bail us out financially, please . . .
      Greece: Yes, what Sweden said. Oh, and send us Nia Vardalos! She's hot!
      Portugal: Brazil speaks our language! Whoo hooo!
      Poland: Aleksandr Nevsky was a prick.
      Russia: Nyet. We suck less now. Skinny bitches.
      Austria: FASCISM BEGAN HERE!!!!!! HORST WESSEL LIED!!!!!!!
      Monaco: Chips? Chips? Chips?

  • NoOneToYou

    Yeah right… from "war" 😀 Ameridiots!

    • dissapointedwithyou

      What would you call men and women fighting and dying while in military service? Play time? Nationality is a weak crutch that weak minded people like to lean on. Grow up, get an education and rethink your place in life litte child.

  • John Fisher

    Maybe there's hope for us yet.
