    "``Eyes Right`` is reserved for the highest dignitaries."

    No, it`s reserved for any saluting officer as they march past.

    No it`s not... Salutes are returned by the person in charge of the platoon and the 2ic while marching. The rest of the squad/platoon is commanded eye`s right/left.

    This kid (or the kid`s parents, whoever came up with the idea) is awesome. However, it should not be forgotten how awesome the officer in command was for giving the "eyes right" command. ^^

    This, as a Canadian, brought tears to my eyes. The Dutch have always - ALWAYS - been above and beyond respectful and one step ahead of us when it comes to remembering our fallen soldiers. They have never forgotten the Canadians who helped liberate them, and even today their children are still being taught those lessons. It is truly heartwarming to see. I hope one day to go to the Netherlands in May to see their celebrations.

    I will never forget when my Master Sergent called "eyes right" and I made the mistake of saluting... Whoa... did I get my ass chewed out.

    many a days i have come to this site, but never have i seen such pure greatness. Not only in the excitement of the young child but from the respect of those Canadian soldiers. No wonder nobody ever messes with the Canadians, that would be just..... disrespectful to them

    "yeah give respect to somebody that kills civilian and fails they`re primary mission hip hip..."

    You really have zero clue of what you are saying. You don`t know what our primary mission is... and name one war where civilians are not killed. Go look up the word `ENTROPY` and then maybe you will understand that not all things can be controlled no matter how you prepare.

    On another note, that was a very big honor given to a very little person. I hope the kid sees it when he gets older so maybe he can see how great that was.

    @SVampkid

    War is war slacker. I can tell by your age you`ve never devoted a second of your life to something greater than yourself either by draft nor volunteering. These men put their very existence on the line for the common good. Lives are lost, poo happens... but to spit on them openly is a disgusting, uneducated response. You haven`t seen poo yet... good luck.

    Nevermind, your favorite song is by System... and based on your age you buy into that crap.

    SoaD is an idealist band at best. It would be nice if we could all get along, but we wont. Ask Hitler when you get to hell for failing to protect your neighbor.

    Well, good. I saw this footage when it first came out a few years ago. It did not shock me then and it didn`t shock me now. There is also nothing about the wikileaks escapade that shocked me or swayed any opinion I have. Hell I actually know and speak to (daily) one of the guys that wrote some of those documents.

    It still does not change the fact that you still have no idea what Entropy is and how it effects a system. In this case the `system` being the war and all the logistics involved on scales your small mind cannot even begin to comprehend.

    @SvampeBob-
    American soldiers don`t get to set foreign policy- they don`t choose their missions. I completely disagree with how the US Government has been using its military for the past nine years- but I have utmost respect for anyone who is willing to put their life on the line to defend this country. It`s the cowards who are calling the shots in Washington that I have a problem with.

    I have seen much respect & gratitude for our American soldiers lately. This Veterans Day I was at a Face to Face show & they started it off by thanking all the vets in the audience & playing the first song for them. The crowd went wild. Frankly, I hadn`t felt that emotional rush of patriotism in a while, so that was someething I won`t soon forget. BTW, the clip is too cool.

    CANADA... drat YEAH, HERE TO SAVE THE MOTHER dratING DAY YEAH!

    Hmmm, it could work. I do think of Canada as a northern state in the first place. They`re Americans that live in a different country imo.

    Really? What a delightfully parochial attitude to life. That other country up there is just a potential territory that hasn`t been absorbed yet. Carry on Führer, I`m still chuckling.
