Thank you so much John 5 (VN69/70) for sending this to me.

Well this is one video you won't see plastered all over CNN.

Surprising that this was done by NBC News, a major media. Kudos to them.

I believe these three soldiers represent the majority of combat troops. They want support for their efforts and the war so they can win and come home to a more secure America.

Thanks WT and Thanks John. NBC no less, a shocking display of the truth. I don't watch the alphabet networks or CNN, so I missed the broadcast by Richard Engle and don't have a sense of when it aired. Engle may have put it on You Tube in frustration, either way it's nice to see something that isn't coached. With a high re-enlistment rate and multiple tours of combat the soldiers obviously believe in what we are doing there. God bless them.

Billy your right and CNN should be ashamed of themselves how little (almost none) coverage they have done about our troops and the good things they do. The victories they have won and other things.

Tom, yes I was totally surprised that NBC did this.

Jack I got an email this morning from a Mom of one of the soldiers in Iraq and she said he is doing his 3rd tour now.
