Thanking Our Troops In The Cause For Freedom

This video of former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush welcoming our troops home brought tears to my eyes - for so many reasons. For one thing, respect, honor and trust were in style. Thank you to our brave returning soldiers! And, thank you Mr. and Mrs. GW Bush, for pleasantly surprising our brave soldiers upon their return. They valiantly served our country to liberate the Iraqis from tyranny and oppression! Thank you ALL for keeping America safe and the place where FREEDOM RINGS!

What a wonderful and moving post Christine! Thank you so much for that! Those men and women are the real American heroes! I surely admire the class of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Bush.

Thank you for sharing this. It brought tears to me eyes but also a big smile, seeing the honesty and genuine appreciation being expressed by George and Laura Bush. Our returning military deserve no less.

Thank you both - Steve and Anonymous.

Notice how George and Laura Bush made the greeting all about our returning heroes - not about themselves. That is what is missing (IMHO) from Obama and his administration. It is ALWAYS about them.

Honesty and genuine appreciation...many Americans are craving those sentiments because we haven't seen them in this current political climate. Sad...isn't it?

Nonetheless, I agree that our wonderful military deserve NOTHING BUT THE BEST!
