    Agree with all of the above!!
    So many have sacrificed and the millennials just don't get it!!! ( at least most don't from what I have seen)
    Thank you to all that have.

    I'll admit it.....I had a tear or two on my cheek.
    That was powerful.

    Hell, I feel the same way just seeing a man in the uniform. Doesn't even need to be a commercial.

    Thanks to ALL that have, or will, serve!

    I had watched the end of, Saving Private Ryan, the evening before!
    Then this terrific commercial! Quite a tear fest! That ad makes me proud to be an American!

    Completely agree with all that has been posted. Something moving about a person who is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the country they love.

    Very moving.... Moisture has been noted on the cheeks... Kinda like when I hear the Star Spangled Banner or Proud to be an American.

    As I grow older I have a deeper love and appreciation for this great land. May the Lords blessings be upon all those who have, are currently, or will serve in the future... Thank you for your service and sacrifice!

    Tears are streaming down my face. After 50 years of living God has made me strong enough to cry like a baby. Awesome commercial!
    May our lives glorify God,

    Some times people forget just how much freedom costs, and that it takes real people to go and continue to keep it secure for the rest of us each and every day! Thank God we have many such people!
