this restores my hope in humanity

this video brings me almost to tears, I see this video and i realize how much people can care for each other and that we are not all hopeless idiots. Don't care about thumbs just wanted to share my thoughts

I remember when me and my unit came home.... we were seven men short, but their wives and kids were there because they hadn't been informed, i don't have kids of my own, and i was heartbroken, so i waited around, most were 2-5 years old, when most of the other men and their families had gone i stepped forward to the other families and made the announcement that none of the kids understood and all the women dreaded, i was adopted by all of those kids as their dad, i recently came home from my third tour and found that the same families who i had given the bad news to were all waiting for me, I went from being a young married marine with no kids to a father of 14 children, salute to all the fathers out there who served their country, both living and passed

I respect you. I plan on joining the Navy and become a NAVY SEAL officer. I'm not like those kids that plays a videogame and says they want to be in the Special Forces. No, i wanted to be SEAL before i played videogames, before they killed Osama. I'm 14 and in the NJROTC program in my school. Thank you so much for serving this country.

Holy **** ... I wish I could say I know that feel. That must be the feeliest feel of all feely feels. It must take some real skill just to handle being in a war situation, sometimes I just marvel at how difficult it must be just to be there. I've considered either being in the military or being a fireman for a while now. But if I go into the military, I think I'd probably be best off as a UAV operator or something along those lines. It just seems like to do that line of work, to see friends die, to break terrible news, would just be shattering for me. I have a lot of respect for all soldiers, no matter what. Guys like you are handling the hardest physical and mental strain over every other American, yet kids in schools still refuse to ******* even stand up for the Pledge. I wish you the best of luck throughout your life, and no matter what your views or opinion on anything is, people will always respect you.

i scrolled down looking for the troll reply to this. so happy when i didn't find it :)
User avatar #875 to #679 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
I am as well, usually i get a troll reply, I'm glad there wasn't one
User avatar #9 to #8 - thejokerxx (11/07/2011) [-]
man thats sad and i respect that you not only having to face the fear of dieing but having the strength to tell the most hardest thing to tell some one
User avatar #11 to #9 - kumabear (11/07/2011) [-]
the hardest is hearing "are you my real daddy?" or "what was my real daddy like?" my wife doesn't understand it when i go to visit them and i come back crying, she could never really get it, those men were my brothers, now their kids are my kids, and their wives under my care, one of the little girls thinks she has magic powers cause she prays for groceries the day before i drop them off for her family, its sad, my best bud, he had a daughter the day he died, his wife gave birth, his little girls birthday is his death day....
User avatar #12 to #11 - thejokerxx (11/07/2011) [-]
man thats hard war will never be easy not even for the winners i my self want to join the military but i could never know that feeling i respect you
User avatar #13 to #12 - kumabear (11/07/2011) [-]
If you're gonna go into the military go air force, its got good money and less chance of going through the kind of stuff i did, in glad no one with an anti war sentiment has commented on this yet
User avatar #14 to #13 - thejokerxx (11/07/2011) [-]
the thing is im not smart enough for air force and much prefer going to the army my friend is joining and when we were kids we promised each other that we would join the same day and for the anti war people they dont understand that joining the army isn't pride for the country its more then that and they will never understand it unless they go them self
User avatar #15 to #14 - kumabear (11/07/2011) [-]
I joined up because growing up, i didn't have a lot of hope, the kids who i played army with and stuff like that, most of em are gang bangers, drugies or dead, I'm the only one i know who has a clean record, minus a few inter military fistfights haha
User avatar #16 to #15 - thejokerxx (11/07/2011) [-]
yea for me and my friend its people issue my parents and his parent aren't caring for us they will care for stupid **** and apparently every one else we hang out with are just getting stuff off us i personally think its the area we live in and the type of people in this area but its hard to find some one who actually cares about you thats why i play video games gives me the chance to meet people who do care so we figured the only place were we would be cared for and to care back is the army
User avatar #18 to #16 - kumabear (11/07/2011) [-]
Well if you want to be cared about, the corps is the place to go, grunts become your brothers and sisters, i seen the army, they aren't as close as us, we go to each others weddings, funerals and care for families of the lost, i haven't seen much of that from the army, no offense to anyone in it
User avatar #19 to #18 - thejokerxx (11/07/2011) [-]
yea i know thats the one we are thinking of
User avatar #22 to #19 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
Oorah brother, see you on the battlefield
User avatar #23 to #22 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
defiantly just one question which light machinegun are they using now im confused is it still the m249 saw m240 or iar
User avatar #24 to #23 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
Depends on who you are with i was on a SAW before they recruited me for scout sniper training
User avatar #26 to #24 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
good cuz i cant stand the m240
User avatar #27 to #26 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
whys that?
User avatar #28 to #27 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
it is basically a oversized m248 saw it is to long and they expect people to run with that honestly if it would be me i would prefer the m249 saw with the ammo pouch it is still alittle heavy but im able to run with it and it has a higher rate of fire witch means more suppressed fire
User avatar #30 to #28 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
you gotta tough up man haha, try running with a barrett fifty
User avatar #39 to #30 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
lol thanks man and it wouldent let me respond to your last post
User avatar #40 to #39 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
its all gud man
User avatar #29 to #28 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
sorry m249 mistake
#31 to #27 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
and i can hold up something as heavy i play airsoft and im a full auto machine gunner the gun i use is this one
User avatar #33 to #31 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
Thats an M60, Im a sniper, we carry the Barrett 50 cal which is 28 lbs unloaded and the mag weighs a ******** , so yeah, i have to run, pull guard duty and sleep next to that heifer in the combat zone
User avatar #35 to #33 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
and also i love the m60 im a fan of it so i had to get on
User avatar #573 to #35 - whynospacesallowed (11/08/2011) [-]
I'm not strong enough to carry an lmg, nor are my eyes good enough to be a sniper. I wish you both the best of luck and maybe I'll be helping out from the sidelines.
User avatar #34 to #33 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
i give respect snipers i really do but at the same time i couldn't do that ever since i was growing up iv always had to be smack Dab in the middle for me to work effectively that's why i love light machine guns personally i know how they work and its easy for me to know that i can help at any moment you know you do have to run but the battle would be so far you dident have to worry unless you are counter sniping and yes its tough but i like to be close to what im shooting
User avatar #36 to #34 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
i love LMGs too, i wish they had put me in force recon as a gunner instead of Scout Snipers, i miss my 249, lmao i remember in training i was at the range and it was a thunder storm coming on and i fired at the same time there was a clap of thunder, everyone was staring at me and i shouted thunder! "thunder gun" was etched into the side of my SAW, i want it back
User avatar #37 to #36 - thejokerxx (11/08/2011) [-]
thats good lol i just hope they put me as a gunner thats only were i will show my full potential
User avatar #38 to #37 - kumabear (11/08/2011) [-]
you could be a chief, those guys are crazy, heavy rapid fire machine guns, raining death from choppers haha

User avatar #695 - SpcRamon (11/08/2011) [-]
My own return home from Iraq was just like this. My entire family was at the airport, waiting for me to get off. The moment i was seen, my brother(17) and sister(15) took off running. My brother made leap and i tried to catch him, i wasn't able to when my sister made a leap at me too. They tackle me to the ground in front of everyone at the airport. But i didn't care, i missed my family. This brought back memories.

Some people would never experience this, it is a sad, yet joyous time. If i am able to, i would relive that moment forever.


Especially if lived through this feeling before.

Thank you for your service! Despite all of the bull **** that goes on in the world, you Soldiers are making the ultimate sacrifice for OUR safety.

I salute you, Spc. Ramon.

You should thank fate, too.

She decided that it was my time to do something with my life.

6 years ago, quite literally 10 days from now, i flipped my grandfather's 50 cent coin. Heads I joined the army, tails i walk away.

You can guess what happen. :)

I guess i should of know it would happen. My grandfather was in marines, but died to a heart complications.

My dad left for the navy when my mom was only a few months pregnant. He didn't come back until I was about 4. Within that time, three of my cousins were born and I moved into a large house with my grandparents, cousins, and aunts because my mom didn't have the money to support me on her own. He told me that when he came back he had to ask my grandmother witch one I was because my mom stopped talking to him so he didn't know what my gender was, and me and my cousins (2 boys, 1 girl at the time) are all close in age. I was the one he least expected because I had light blonde hair and blue eyes unlike everybody on his side of the family. Unfortunately, I can't remember any of this because later that day I was attacked by a dog on the street and unintentionally blocked that entire day out of my memory.

Pic related: It's him on the ship

Summery: I didn't meet my dad until I was 4 because he was in the navy. When I did he didn't recognize me. I can't remember that day at all. The pic is him on his ship.

How come you do not remember the day then?

My dad did years later when I found that picture and asked him about it.
