    I'm sure you've seen this...it's a little older in the "Commercial Dept." but I have to say, it chokes me up every time I see it, so I thought I'd allow you some tear time too.

    One of the best commercials ever made.

    I was very fortunate to have seen something just like that happen at an airport I was passing through. A group of soldiers came through, and they were applauded the entire length of the terminal (by almost, but not quite entirely, everyone there; those who didn't got decidedly unkind looks from the rest.).

    God bless our troops! :smile:

    Teary eyed here in Texas. Saw the Trace Adkins song at the music awards. Had never seen the bud ad. I fly often for my work and try to make a point of thanking any military personnel I see traveling.

    Always used to see this commercial at the Anheuser Busch building at Seaworld Orlando. I love this commercial. I wish everyone in the U.S would honor our soldiers.

    This is not a commercial but I always thought it was for those who threw their hats in the air or completed basic and also served. Maybe just for the parents of those who did and/or those looking back.:biggrin:

    LITS, we are at the ATL airport quite a bit picking up our cadet. Many, many military go through there, as you can imagine. As they come up the escalator from the tram, they are always greeted with applause...have never been there when this didn't happen. Makes me proud this happens here; hope it happens all over.

    I do like that, thanks for sharing.


    Hockeyguy, I have no children...not planning on any for awhile either. It's good for parents to see this stuff though, especially once they start getting the profanity filled angry phone calls from their academies.
