That is amazing. Great to see. You must be so proud! And tell him thank you, that is the most admirable profession in the world. Soldiers can never get enough thanks in this world.

Glad he's back safe! The family must be thrilled!

I spent a little time on youtube last night watching 'homecoming' videos... This big guy ended up using a few kleenexes, lol.

Congrats to your soldier and the whole family. I imagine that he is glad to be home. I am grateful for all his hard work and sacrifice. Thank him for me too.

I don't agree with this "war", but is support all the troops - Canadian, American, British, Australian, etc. so thank your soldier for his sacrifice and let him know we're glad he's home safe
