Motivational video, one of the best I have seen 


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYEw-8ZPrT8

Hey I am drinking a few beers and reminiscing about a few years I spent in the military.  Great teams have champions with heart.  A team that pulls together and cares about their comrades more than they care about themselves cannot be beat.

Feel free to add any motivational speeches, videos or whatever.  I personally love it!!!

Great post. I also thought about the old LRRP days. Sometimes when you are on your belly in the mud and it is raining all you can think about is getting to the other side. I served with some great guys and knew two things. 1, Each one had my back and I had theirs. and 2. "Button" Rose usually carried the AK.

Great video thanks.  I never served in the armed forces. I was one of those at an age where I was either too young or too old. I was 14 when the Vietnam war ended. I remember when I was around 11 and they had a lottery draft and my birthday was chosen second. Scared the hell out of me because I didn't realize at first that I didn't have to go to war. The next major war cycle started in 1990 when I was 29. I think the draft cut off age was 28. One of my younger brothers joined the Marines in 1991. He assimilated back to society pretty well but eventually what we all think was a PTSD, he took his life. He was not as strong as many and not a good team mate when he was young, but the Marines helped him with his confidence. Honestly, IMO, I think it was the Marines who stopped him from being a serial killer. Yeah, he had that wierd brain switch thing. Nice quiet guy, 49er fan who couldn't talk smack for shyt, but every once in a while he'd get crazy for absolutely no known reason.

Raw, that is a tough story. I'm sorry for your loss. I was fortunate that I didn't have problems when I came back. I didn't have people yelling at me. I was just so happy to be out of there. Here's a Corona to those who didn't come home and to those who brought it back with them. .
