    This video gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. I love our country and and am so proud of our men and women in any branch of America's military. I am also grateful for the sacrifices made by each and every one of them.

    All give some and some give all.

    I know there will be those who will criticize this young soldier because he is voting for John McCain. I expect it because this is a debate forum.

    Debate away. Your opinion will not change my mind nor the mind of the soldier in this video.

    Nor will it cease to be the truth just because someone disagrees with it...

    I like what he said, those sacrifices were not a mistake, his personal sacrifice was not a mistake, obama would belittle those sacrifices and write them off, as a mistake. When who knows better then the solidiers fighting the value of what they're doing.

    I respect this young man's commitment to America. But that does not make him an expect on foreign policy. I too am committed to my country but I believe this war is a terrible mistake.

    Exactly, how biased is this thread. I love all the men and women who were obedient to the call to arms but think invading Iraq was a terrible mistake. And I resent anyone implying that makes me less patriotic or supportive of our military. That is just a very narrow view.

    The video wasn't too American, but to obama. And I agree with him, you can not call the sacrifices a mistake. Those soliders are there in person, they beleive in what they're doing, because they see it, we do not. All we know is what the media tells us.

    As a loyal, patriotic American who loves his country I fully respect this young hero's views. I too am now supporting Sen McCain.

    That doesn't mean that I agree with the action in Iraq.

    I am grateful for these young people who sacrifice so much for their country. What makes them real heroes is that I am sure that not every one of them agrees 100% with foreign policy concerns either, but they still serve and do so with courage.

    I think that we have made some mistakes in the execution of the Iraq War. I think that we have also accomplished some good things.
