Neat add but the young fellow should have saluted first!! Bud who 50 years ago was spending his last summer in Germany.

I agree, Nice ad. Today I could not even begin to put one leg in my old uniform. I guess the old uniform must have shrunk over the years.

I was in advertising for about thirty years. _It was a trade full of trends, fads and change (mood rings, pet rocks, leisure suits, Pokémon trading cards, cabbage-patch dolls), but the one concept which never changed was that a good ad makes you feel something. _This one certainly makes you feel something.

Call it PTSD, but all I see are dumbasses who will never understand.

The young guy was out of uniform by not having his hat on, and as said he should have saluted first

I thought the message was well intended even if not perfectly portrayed. When I see someone making an effort to do something good, I tend to forgive their minor missteps.

I expected the young solder to salute first but it is still is a great video!

I really enjoyed it. Thank you for posting it. It reminded me of my Dad and my Father-in-law both of whom served in WWII. Good memories.

And we have a lot to be thankful for. Those who have served and those who are serving -- thank you!

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

To Will Copeland,
The conductor of the large wind symphony of which my wife is a member had to have his Coast Guard Commander's uniform pants taken in to wear them for Boston's Memorial Day service! He has lost 25 lbs since his retirement from the 'Guard.

To me,the older gentleman saluted the younger one as a sign of respect for what he did and went through. At least that's what I would have done. [my uniform shrank by about 80 pounds] Dave

David, That was my take when I first saw the ad. It being an ad, likely made by actors, it may never be known if the salutes were in the wrong order by mistake or intentional. I'd like to believe the intent was to emphasize that the young solder was too startled by the sight of the old soldier to remember to salute first. The missing hat, hey it was an ad.

"To me,the older gentleman saluted the younger one as a sign of respect for what he did and went through."

That's my take on it too, Dave, and that's what makes it such a great ad.
