  21. my dad fought in Afghanistan now he physically survived but mentally he is lost to PTSD. so even though he is not dead. RIP
    josh.p.montgomery I miss you.

  22. My great uncle died in the Vietnam War and I never got to meet him. I hear my grandparents and great grandma talk how good of a person he was. he died for me, you, my family, your families, and for this shit hole called America. I will always love him even if I never get to meet him.

  23. Everyone tells me that I'm stupid and dumb for joining the Army Rangers, and that I will most likely die. What I tell them is, "If no one fights, then who is gonna watch over this country? Who is gonna save your family? If everyone is scared of death, then who will protect our home? I tell ya, courage means standing tall when you're at your lowest, being brave when you are scared. Even though I may be afraid of death and scared shitless of what is to come, I know that I will not hesitate to risk my life if I know I can save others with this life I am given." I tell them this and they remember it. Everyone out there has a job, a purpose to do. It's what you do with your life that shows meaning.

  24. What about the ones who didn’t have it back home from a normal job?? The ones who working, trying to give their family a better life? My daddy died 10/25/18 (5days after my 23 birthday) leaving work. This song hits hard.

  25. What about the ones who didn’t have it back home from a normal job?? The ones who working, trying to give their family a better life? My daddy died 10/25/18 (5days after my 23 birthday) leaving work. This song hits hard.

  27. 1/3 stick butter

    1/2 cup diced onions

    1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

    2 cups sliced green beans

    3 cups chicken broth

    1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup

    1 (2.8-ounce) can French-fried onion rings

    Pinch Salt n Pepper

    1 cup grated Cheddar

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Melt the butter in a large skillet. Saute the onions and mushrooms in the butter. Boil green beans in chicken broth for 10 minutes and drain. Add the green beans, mushroom soup, onion rings, and Salt n Pepper, to taste, to the onion mixture. Stir well. Pour into a greased 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, then top the casserole with the Cheddar and bake for 10 minutes longer, or until the casserole is hot and cheese is melted

  28. Rest in peace to the ones who gave everything so that we could enjoy our freedom. May God ease the minds of the families that lost loved ones, and protect the ones that are still risking everything.

  29. I dont know any passed military members and it still almost made me cry you are one hell of a singer songwriter justin

  30. If I had kids I would make them listen to this song it's a good life lesson song and once I'm done with high school I will also be ready to serve are amazing country

  31. Awesome song! 1st time I heard it. RIP all our fallen brothers in crap hole 3rd world countries. Still shed tears for you brothers! Emotional right now. Let's take care of our country 1st!

  32. As a kid who has never had anybody pass away due to serving this song still gives me chills. It shows the ultimate sacrifice that they give each and everyday for us. Thank you for all who serve. Sorry for everyone who has lost someone. God Bless all!

  33. As a soldier in the US Army I greatly appreciate this song. I met my best friend during my training. He ended up at a different duty station, though. I was stationed in WA while he was stationed in GA. Over the ten months that I have known him I have grown to appreciate him as much more than just a friend. His unit might be leaving for Kuwait next year, which comes with the possibility of crossing into Afghanistan. Not 100% guarantee, just a possibility. He might stay here in the States. But I swear if I end up having to live this song as a reality for you, Justin… I don't think I can finish that sentence. I first heard this song when I went to visit my family this July 4th. On the way to the airport at the end of my visit my dad was playing a country station in his car. This song came on and it almost made me cry. I am not one to show emotion, as being a female in the military I constantly have men comparing me and thinking less of me. I have learned that if a female shows emotion, it makes her weak in the eyes of quite a few men I have worked with. But when you are forced to take into consideration your death or that of someone you are close to, that breaks barriers. If I lost one of my team members or friends because of their military service I am pretty sure I would fall apart. And if my family were to receive that message, they would fall apart. I will never forget the tears in my mom's eyes the day I said goodbye the first time. When I left for Basic Training. It tore at her emotionally to know what her daughter was about to be training for. In the past fourteen months I have been blessed with the ability to visit home twice. But every goodbye breaks her down. But I never felt the full pain that she did until the day Justin told me about the chances of him leaving. I understand the need to fulfill the mission, however, so I don't complain. I know that whatever happens happens because the good Lord has planned it to. I miss you, Justin, and I know you know that. One day I will be standing next to you again, praising God for blessing me with such a gift as you. And I know that when I play this song for you to hear, you will feel the same power behind these lyrics that I do. Until then, I will keep you in my prayers. Maybe one day you will be playing this song and stumble upon this comment. And you will read all these words that I can't bring myself to say to you. You will never understand just quite how much of a blessing you have been to me. Inveniam viam aut faciemus. We will find a way or we will make one.

  34. Anybody that dislikes this video needs to be deported to Iraq and have their freedom taken away. Get your asses out of this Country and don’t come back.

  35. PFC Hudson, April 2004 Iraq. I think about you everyday… You will never be forgotten my friend. I’m glad I got to spend your last day on earth with you.

  36. In Honor for our freedom…. for the sacrafice of our Troops…my Heros…love and prayers… God bless each one of them
