This is a song by Toby Keith. It is one which I think I may have known of for some time, though I did not learn the title for it until relatively recently.
The video that goes with the song tends to bring tears to my eyes when I watch it. I love the United States military to pieces, especially the Navy and the Marines. What can I say? Jarheads and Squids are AMAZING!!! The SEALs are, too, of course. I can’t forget them. 😉
But the scene in this video that I especially enjoy is the shot of the Doughboy as he takes the crucifix he is wearing around his neck, kisses it, then puts it down his shirt front before charging over the trench wall. It makes my eyes water every time.
I hope you enjoy the video and the song, readers. God bless America, God bless our troops, and God bless you!
