    I am not a military man myself, nor is anyone close to me, but these videos get me every time man! And that's coming from a guy who doesn't cry very often and I've seen a lot of messed up stuff in my life. I think it's the thought of love for your family or loved ones that these people feel that gets me. People in uniform, serving, deserve respect and I think theChive does an excellent job at doing that. KCCO, a Canadian Chiver

    Great video

    thank you to everyone who has served or is serving… we owe you everything

  • Shane

    I've never been supportive of the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq, but I have the utmost respect for anybody in uniform. My uncle served as part of the peacekeeping force in the former Yugoslavia in the early 90's, and after hearing some of his stories, I know it's not something I could do. So thank you to all that serve, and I hope that you can all make it home safe and sound.

    I've got a huge piece of wood in my eye. That or I just can't control my emotion when it comes to how much these heroes sacrifice to make us safe. I'll never EVER be ashamed of being PATRIOTIC. God Bless these men and women and the USA.

    This is one feeling I'll never receive or experience. I know no one who serves in the army, and I will never be. The only feeling that I will ever have is the trying to stop the tear from building and cry like a baby when I'm watching this videos.

    To all of you who get to hug and kiss your love ones again, Congratulations!
    To all of you who lost someone and will never be able to hug and kiss them, more power to you!

    To everyone, Chive on!!!

  • Baby doll Wilson

    First of all I want to thank my Chiver husband for serving our country and dedicating the rest of his life for our country's freedom.

    Other than that, a big thank you to those serving, have severed, and for those who have lost their lives. Being a U.S. Citizen and an Army wife I have nothing but respect for you all.

    Chive, thank you for all the military support videos and pics you post. But damn you guys for making me cry!!

  • Joe

    Even harder to watch while being deployed and away from my girls…. 48 more days and daddy will be home…

    • Caleb

      The thumbs down was me. Sorry. Onions blurred my vision. A resounding thumbs up. I have been where you are and I know the excitement and countdowns. Don't forget to add a wake up. KCCO.

    • Humble American

      God speed, Joe.
