Wild Thing's comment..........
The Veteran in the video actually lived this song!? And that he was the guy that gave Big Kenny the top hat that he wore in "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy" This is such an amazing song! LOVE

We lost so many in Vietnam and it seemed much of America did not care at the time. Thankfully we have come a long way since then in our respect for fallen warriors.

I wish I knew how these men could get through the song without breaking down...GREAT song, and I really don't care for Country that much.
