    when I found the video on YouTube it said "Videos Posted by Goobig Qp Aug 2, 2010 (facebook)" hope this helps!

    I spent 4 years on a nuclear ballistic submarine and had to go through this 7 times. Granted, I wasn't in hand to hand combat but when you can't talk to or see you wife & kids for 90-100 days and your kids are little and you know you are missing them growing up it is really emotional. I lasted about 7 seconds until the girl recognized her Dad and I completely lost it.

    Definitely balled my eyes out.. Thank you to the service men and women who fight for our country.

    Chive and all Chivers. As a service member myself (Marines) I've been on deployment and am currently stationed overseas in Japan. There is no greater feeling in the world than coming home to your loved ones. I've seen this video at least 10 times, and it's a great reminder that there are people in our great country around the world who appreciate our service. Thank you all for your support, and Semper Fi!

    Great video – what a shame they included that biblical nonsense on the end. Messed up the whole thing.

  • Allie R Helms

    I was welling up within 20 seconds and bawling by 45 seconds… my appreciation has grown more and more for our troops since my boyfriend left for basic training about 3 weeks ago.

  • John

  • Rob

    WTF were they doing in Iraq anyway, this is fucking lame. Get home with your childs and build a better future, I bet they were killing and raping inocent ppl and then come home as "heroes" what a sorry excuse of a country the US is.

    • FWM

      A sorrier excuse than chango?

  • LT.Gambi

    'challenge accepted' aaand i failed. i made it 28 seconds…

  • 2 beer

    There ought to be laws against videos like that: not really Thanks you all for your service.

  • Steve.

    This the one and only candidate for world video of the decade. I'm a Brit, but it matters not who you are, only that they come home safely. Bless all our troops.

  • C-J

    I watch this every couple of months to check I'm still human. Amazing.
    21 seconds…

  • evilmy

    I am French , i don't have any parents involved in a war and i may not agree with America sometimes but i must admit i cried at the first little girl. This is a video that give me a little more Faith in humanity.

  • mikel

    the little girl at 1:30 ish on santas lap was the first that got me, then the boy running and crying to his daddy got me again. when im a dad i hoped im as loved as much as those across seas that come back

  • Sean Yamazaki

    The agents of fascists finally return home. Now maybe my tax dollars can stop going towards killing the little brown people overseas.

  • Courtenay

    31 seconds before I started bawling my eyes out. My little brother is in the military and thinking of him deploying scares the crap out of me.

  • Danny Ibarra


  • Da Sandman

    i must not cry.. you cannot make me cry..!! 😥 oh w8.. yes you can

  • cowboycarym

    Damn you Chive!!! I was thinking I could make it…no problem. Yeah RIGHT!!! I was bawling inside 30 seconds.
    I am so grateful for all the military and what they do for us. I couldnt help to ponder for a moment and, as wonderful as it felt to see this children and family rejoicing for their returned service men and women, to think of the poor children that will never hold their mom or dad again. Again, unless we have served ourselves we will never know the true sacrifice theses men and women make for OUR country.
