    I went to the American Cemetery at Loraine France 10,849 graves the largest American cemetery in Europe.

    I almost got through one Medal of Honor Citation before I couldn't see through the tears. We were there for almost an hour I never said a word I couldn't. I'm teared up right now just thinking about it. .

    Wow, that was stirring! If only more of the younger generation had respect for those who have sacrificed everything they had.

    As a former member of the 82nd Airborne Division. Thank you. And tell your son that he has honored tens of thousands of soldiers. Past and present.

    Wow, you see so many kids these days that make you think the future of this country and this world will be hopeless. And then you see something like this. This kid and every one like him represents what true freedom and liberty are. The understanding of sacrifice and duty for the guys and girls to the left and right of you, and for the hope of a better tomorrow.
    Thank you for posting. My outlook on my childrens future got a little brighter after watching.
