This is such a moving picture.
I suppose having sons the age of many of our soldiers makes my heart more tender to the sacrifice parents make, sending their sons to war. The appreciation in this old soldiers embrace.... so moving.

I agree. I think it captures the understanding of sacrifice that only another soldier could understand.
