My son was in Iraq and I was driving home from work and had to pull the car over and cry...it still gets to me 10 years later. but so does the song God Bless America...the song the Army Band played when my son came home at Ft. Bragg 2004. It never sounded so beautiful, and has never sounded the same since.

freedom doesn't come free, and soldiers sacrafice themselves to protect this land and their families so we can live in peace. Family members leave the comfort and safety of their own home so we can live in freedom.

My father was an army ranger, and when I was smaller even to the age of 15 I always wanted to do what he did. He always told me it's not just a gun and a medal... I just got out of my second tour and I can honestly say that my dad was right, And this song made me cry because of all the emotions it brought back.

When i first heard this song, i burst into tears. I'm really working on fighting off my depression and this song really nailed it. When i got home everyone called me a hero, but honestly i didn't really feel like a hero, and he is right there is a medal over my chest, but it means something totally different to me than it does to everyone else. Also, mistakes happen in war, and i think that is more what he is talking about versus soldiers violating UCMJ.

If you look at the comments, and notice those that are enlisted, they respect this song. A song doesn't have to sing praise towards us, for that is not what a soldier joins for. The song means something, it means something more then most of the others don't. You don't join to be a hero. You join to make the world a better place, in a way many people don't understand. That effort, in most cases, comes at a tragic cost. Every time I hear this song it evokes real emotions, and things I cannot express in words alone.

I'm in the army myself. I really do respect this song. This isn't disrespectful in my opinion in any sense. This is someone who left so he could be a hero of war. Someone who wanted to be bigger and make more of a difference in the world than he felt he could make in the civilian world. But what he finds out is there is a lot more that happens in war than you think. And he falls into it. In the end he regrets it all. He realises that doing all of the things he did, didn't make him a hero of war. And treating and killing innocent people like he did only made him a bad person. He regrets killing the little girl, hince why he brings the flag home. The flag is a symbol of true freedom in his mind. Not the american flag.

my mother was in the army as a combat medic. she hates this song but we have different view points. she says that this song is disrespecting the soldier, i say its saying **** happen/ they didn't know what they wanted when they sighed, stress and panick may have been the issue for the video of shooting the little girl. Almost all of my family was military mostly consisting of Marines and Army so i did grow up with hearing stories and i plan on going in myself, in my opinion i think the band was trying to get the public to see that soldiers are put through traumatic experiences, they make mistakes and well, stuff happens under stress, they're not perfect but even so they r proud to serve their country.

I was in afghanistan for a year and was shot at on a daily basis and i can relate to everything in this song... you never knew who you could trust or what was goin to happen... all you knew is that you needed to live, survive, for the loved ones home... and you would do anything to get home to them... you dont know what a year of something trumatic can do to a person, and soldiers, especially infantry and recon, should be heroized for it

To those bashing the USN Officer, LEARN TO READ! He said MOST soldiers, not ALL. For those Soldiers who joined because they wanted the money, I admire what you have done and sacrificed for us, but, truth is.. If you're going for the money then it's not the same. Yes, you do make the same sacrifices and fight the same way and such, but, you're there for the wrong reasons. Or, you joined for the wrong reasons, atleast. I honour and deeply admire and respect Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen alike. You've given and sacrificed so much for your country(ies) and/or state(s). On behalf of one deeply grateful, eternally thankful civillian I say, Thank You for having the courage to stand up for all of us.

I suffer from PTSD because of what's sang in this song. The comments posted about this song our from soldiers who were fobits. As an infantry soldier this song is all facts. Anyone who says otherwise sat on a fob their entire tour of Iraq. For those of us who had to fight we were put in these situations time and time again

after getting out of the military after 15 years I have to disagree, yeah I joined because there weren't many options open to me but I could have done other things but saying that no soldier but those 20 that did it solely out of patriotism did it for their country is kind of false. I've known recruits of all kinds and country was always a factor.

to the second comment, i just left ft benning about 2 weeks ago, and out of the 600 or so guys i knew there maybe 20 or 30 were doing it cuz they were patriotic, id say most were cuz they had no other options, then college, then guys just wanten to go sf or ranger to push themselves and be able to say they did what few other have done. but just a handful did it for country.

im trying to jump on my first deployment right now so i can't say from personal experiance but from what all my sgts and friends who have gone say this hits the nail on the head. Most of us arn't there cuz we like being soldiers we're there cuz we need money or we want to go to school. and when we get tossed into this war...you do stuff and you don't always do the right thing, but you do you're best. cuz i don't know anyone who'd risk there life for oil that they'll never see profit from, but i know atleast 218 men who willl lay down there lives for there wives children parents siblings random strangers or a promise that their death helped to make a better life for someone. as they say over and over i want to be a hero of war...and ps he wouldn't be tried under umcj cuz he couldn't see she was waving a flag, and she was entering a restricted area, i had a ds who shot a 80 year old man driving a truck and killed like 2 kids and they let it go, not that it matters doing something like that would kill you. we're soldiers, were not perfect, but our hearts are mostly in the right place. and i think thats what they were getting at.

For the first comment: Im also a soldier in the british army and i saw the video and heard the song and it is a contridiction not a statement. the song is saying that going to war does not make you a hero that is why the flag he loved at the end was the white flag of surrender that he brought home from the civvie that he shot. You Americans eh lol

Not only this but It's very inaccurate and inconsistent with history and the current conflicts. As a USN officer and descendant of a line of fighting men since the War for Independence I can tell you this song is very disrespectful, most soldiers and sailors didn't volunteer because they were conned into it. Most are patriotic young Americans who want to make a difference and their officers are good human beings who would never order such an event.

Yeah, beating a prisoner of war and shooting a girl who is surrendering.. Yes, this sometimes happend but i wouldnt qualify it to be the best military or soldier song. I'm a soldier and the things sang about does not make you a hero, it makes you a criminal under UMCJ and is why most soldiers will never do such a thing.

You people who don't like this song because the Dixie Chicks sang it are ridiculous! I LOVE the Dixie Chicks and I applaud their right to speak their piece. They have the right to say whatever they want to say. Most people were ashamed of Bush II if we're all honest. I do love the fact that he loves this country, but he was NOT a good president and he did NOT do right by us. This is a beautifully done song and it's just a shame that a wonderful group like this are not even welcome. They supported our troops, just not our president. And they have that right! Thank you to all who are serving and to all who have served, as well as to anybody who has lot a loved one in war. We went way off track in that particular war. Shame on George Bush (though I'd take him over our current president) and good for the Chicks for saying what many of us felt.

Their use of Freedom of Speech is Terrific! And I applaud them for invoking their Right. They have Every Right to Disagree with Politics and Policies. But doing so in the Homeland (United States) is One Thing. Saying you're not proud of the Leader of Your Country... when your Overseas... has a Totally Different MEANING. It's One Thing... to protest, demonstrate, and disagree inside the U.S.....and it's a different thing when you're a public figure (like a Popular Band)... and tell Foreigners that you're Ashamed of Calling your President... a Texan. Can't anyone SEE the Difference?

Wat thy "did" is protected by the constitution I fought to defend. You belittle my service and all soliders with your rants. They have always supported the members of the armed services. We all have not only the right but the duty to call out the washington piheads who misreresent things.

"what they did"? Do you mean expressing an anti-war opinion that is inherent and present in classic country ie Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash. I think modern pop-country like Toby Keith has caused some amnesia about country roots and voice. Does anyone remember why Johnny Cash was The Man in Black?

Written by Jerry Cantrell (lead guitarist) about his dad in Vietnam. Well worth a listen, lyrics and music are both haunting and harrowing, my favourite song of the bunch, with a lot of my family in the armed forces and I myself wanting to join soon

Im married to a marine and he loves this song. no matter why it was written if it brings even a minute amount of relief or comfort to our armed forces its a military song

this song is about Billie Joe Armstrong's (lead singer) father. His father died on the month of September.

This song is not about a young man leaving for war. It's about when the lead singer of green day, billy joe armstrong, lost his father. Do your research.

The song is in an album called AMERICAN IDIOT if you know anything about Green Day, the whole thing was written because the band wanted to write about the war going on in iraq because billie was watching the news one day and was moved by all thecrap he saw and decided it was time for someone to step out in music and write about the war. yes this song was about his father but they put it in the album for a reason. do your research before you comment

even though it's about his father's passing, the entire song could be interpreted to be about losing a father in war. regardless of what the song IS about, it COULD be about that to a certain person.

Although I agree that the video has nothing to do with the original meaning of the song, the whole point of music is to take from it your own interpretation. So this song could be about war if that's what it means to you.

Agreed. Just because a music videos usually alter the true meaning of a song. Billie's father died on September 1, and told his mother to "wake me up when September ends."

Yes, but this is so true, isn't? I mean, a lot of people are saying it doesn't matter. We need to stop going into wars when we're not prepared to finish what we start. Look at Vietnam! All those lives, American and South Vietnamese, so many killed, and we still didn't finish the job. Did they die for nothing? And now we're about to pull out of Iraq, with the Taliban still in hiding and very possibly capable of making a comeback. Once again, we are not finishing what we started. God bless out troops!

Love Vigilantes- Iron and Wine Report Abuse
As an Army wife and veteran who has spent far to much time apart from my soldier, this song made me cry. It is about a soldier coming home on leave missing his wife and child. In the original song by New Order, you find out the soldier died. In this version, it appears as if maybe there was a mistake. But either way, the separation and longing takes its toll.

This song was really moving, I cry every time I hear it. It describes a man telling a woman the love of her life had died at war, and bears the thoughts of every male soldier who has lived another day at war, the next day is no gaurantee .

This is not a war song but about someones grandfathers life. He does mention a war in it but it is not solely about it. it is about the grandfathers life when the grandfather was a kid and how different the times are. It is a great song.
