Have watched it several times, All very professional. The sound quality is excellent and the song is beautiful.
The pictures of parents leaving their children, I find quite disturbing. It is awful that all these young people have to go to war, young fathers, young mothers, I'm not quite sure what all the sacrifice is for though ?

I forget to pray for the Angels

And Paul, you have to respect those people. They are the only protection we have against the tyrants in this world. Much as I hate the idea of war, these people are prepared to die to protect their people. "Greater love has no man" as Jesus said. If only the political leaders whose positions they protect were worthy of them!
Excellent video, on the level of anything else out there by John McDermott or Katherine Jenkins, other big military/veterans' boosters. And yes, seeing the departure of the soldiers is heartbreaking, BUT, there's no one in any of the forces now who didn't choose to be there, and, I think the leaders of this site would agree, this site isn't the place for commentary, backhanded or otherwise, on ongoing conflicts or political leadership.

Hello everybody! I'm glad you are liking the video.
War is never a happy thing. And yes, comet, seeing the children left behind is very distressing...it is even more distressing to see it first hand. It was hard enough to have my sister leave for a year on deployment, i can't imagine having a parent gone. It is truly a sacrifice. This video is my way to show support to those who are making such sacrifices.
