@Bountykat and @furryblob have a little respect, i bet you don`t have the balls to say that to a soldier in person, because if you did, you would be walking home with your teeth!

We should all honor our men and women who fight for our freedom you dont nessasarily have to support this war or any war but you need to respect the people who risk there lives everyday here and abroad. I am completly discusted by some of the negative posts and replies for this video. It wouldnt matter if he was the grocer or a military man coming home he is still an american citizen and is entitled to what ever celebration of his life that is deemed appropriate by his loved ones

@Bountykat you`re right I totally forgot my local grocer defends my freedom.....to buy whatever I want from the grocery store..oh wait wrong The Marine who died did that. I think there`s a loaded gun somewhere with your name written all over it...enjoy.

People die every day. Why is anyone more important than anyone else? You don`t have a drating escorted funeral for your grocer, and they serve you more directly than this guy.

Soldiers are a tool that can be used for good or evil. They`re not inherently one or the other--there are some soldiers who are paragons of virtue, and there are other soldiers who are despicable. It`s a grab bag, just like any other sector of society.

It`s admirable that they give up their freedom and life for the use of someone else, that`s something that I couldn`t do, myself. Especially since I don`t believe in most of the wars they get sent to.

Let`s stop idealizing, though. Because it`s really dumb.

You`re an idiot. You respect the people of Wootton Basset so much you couldn`t even be arsed to look up how to spell it properly. Plus, the Royal is still going ahead and that`s not the reason behind the move to a different airbase. Get your troll facts straight before engaging your brain.

I`m guessing you`ve never served a day in your life. I was twice attached to US units during my military career and I have nothing but respect for their service personnel. They have a few quirks, but every country`s armed forces have that..... especially us. The US certainly treats it`s veterans better than the british government does.

Anyhoos, this video was about SSgt Rogers, and I`ll raise my whisky glass to him.

So the only war you think is alright is the one to keep oil price stable in Europe? I suppose you think it`s about making Lybia "free" would you consider those assigned to this operation serving their country and fighting for your liberties then?

This is disgusting. Celebrating war and death, and being proud of it: no other country does that to the extent americans do.

The men and women in the army is N O T "serving their country" or "defending our liberties". They are in attack and occupation of another country, and besides the complex situation in Libya, there is none of the wars US is involved with that has any solid logical reasons.

I find it hard to belive the blindness of Eurotrash to critsize the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as a war for oil but then pick a revolution to support out of many that happens to be a major oil supplier to Europe and call it a war for "freedom" sound familiar? Pot meet kettle.

Most of us from the USA celebrate our volunteer service men and women. They for the most part do a great job and unselfishly serve the country we love. Our country. We would like them to be home safe and with their families. But as my father used to say, "Wish in one hand and poo in the other and see which gets full the quickest".

Thank you to our service men and women.

I bet most nazi soldiers during ww2 believed in nazi Germany aswell. That`s why it`s important to think what is right or wrong instead of just fighting for your country (aka: doing what the president or big leader of any sorts tell you too). The term used in USA is "patriotism". Which is a dangerous word. It implies solidarity. But it can also mean "do whatever the president tells you to whatever it is"... I am not a 100% fan of patriotism.

Bless all our troops, sorry that some of you had to die on foreign soil in a meaningless war based on lies. Most Lib-tards like me hate the war, not the troops.

Some people make me sick. A man died, fighting for a cause he may or may not have believed in. But that isn`t why he fought. He fought for a country he believed in. No matter how you feel about the war that is being fought, can`t you honor someone who would die for a cause? How many of you could do what he did? Give up everything to go and fight for something you believe in?

(just following your logic)
by association you`re nothing but a thieving, murdering, psychotic criminal on which the basis of your nation began. So anytime congratulates you or honors any of your dead relatives born in Australia they are celebrating murder and robbery.

See where ignorance gets you?

I`ve done the role call and saluted the battle cross five times myself.

Muhammad isn`t a threat to my family. Apart from my brother who`s still active duty. He never was.

Reality is the buzzkill here, not me, but the truth is there is nothing honorable about dying on the modern battle field.

Just to put some facts out there...

The story posted on the Ole Miss message board that everyone is giddy about didn`t happen. I set out to vet the story for a local writer who wanted to do an article about it.

I spoke directly to the Chief of Police in Brandon, then with Walter Johnson of the Rankin County Board of Supervisors.

They both told me that they had heard the story, and while it was a good story, it wasn`t true.

In fact, the WBC NEVER SHOWED UP.

That wooshing sound you hear is my balloon deflating... I SO wanted the story to be true.

Living in Oshawa, I have become so used to procession along the Highway of Heroes that I just automatically pull over and get out of the car whenever I see one. The last time I had friends up from the states they were rather shocked at the number of people they saw lining the streets and overpasses. They couldn`t believe it was something we do for every one of our fallen.

This is Brandon, MS. I`m from here, and I listened to people bitch about Westboro for days before this boy`s funeral. I`m proud of the outcome, though. I`m glad my community stands by our troops.

Little Canadian fact:

We do this for every single military casualty. We have the slow march of the casket onto the plane in KAF, then it comes home, where it lands in Trenton, to another ceremony with the slow march of the casket into a hearst, which goes on to go all the way to Toronto, over 2 hours away, with police blocking off a lane of Canada`s busiest highway for the motorcade. Along the way, every single overpass is jam packed with people paying their respects.

I lived in Trenton, it`s a big deal of an event, to have lost a Canadian soldier, (my coworkers), and everyone involved with these repats is extremely proud to have been there for these people. Things like this gives me hope for the future of our world.

Amazing.

Wish they would do more things like this over in the UK together as one public audience. Respecting soldiers is not just about the theatre of war that they are fighting in, nor is it about the things they do, morally bad or good.

It is about the symbol that the soldier represents.

You can say that they represent the need for oil, Democracy, Islam, or Communism. As much bad as war brings chaos to everyone - The good, in one way or another have always prevailed.

Hard to describe as it is, but all of us are damn lucky to have some people fighting for what is right` even among a world collectively painted black by its inhabitants.

You don`t have to be a war nut to show your respect for a dead soldier. The fact is the guy died in service of his country and the reasons behind the conflict just make it all the more sad. Anyone claiming that this is promoting the war machine can crawl back under his rock next door to the tea partiers. The morality of this war has nothing to do with his funeral procession.

"Why keep rewarding the war machine with these displays of patriotism? "

Because you can be a Patriot without any regard to your feelings about war.

And you can show respect to someone for their service - their sacrifice - without making a statement about war.

And exactly how is the `war machine` being `rewarded`??

@piper, There is so much more to the military than war, but that would take days to go through everything they do. Anyway, I know so many people who turned to the military because they couldn`t get a job or a degree and be successful in civil society. Yet they manage to come out of the service and do quite well. They wanted to support their families and do good for society and the military was the only possible way for them to get started.

Nice I guess. But here in England there`s a town called Wootton Bassett. The bodies of our dead soldiers pass through there after being repatriated to the nearby RAF base. For every single repatriated soldier they line the streets in respect.

Well call me cold blood but if you decide to be a soldier and you decide to go to war you have a very hig percentage to die and is just your drating decision.
For me the real heroe is the guy or girl that fight every days inside the "so called" civil society to find a job, to care about their kids or their parents and not who have decided to embrace a weapon to go all around the world killing or being killed.

" Get a lump in your throat about that, and count up how many of UKs boys have taken IEDs or sniper shots while US troops are miles away in their tanks."

Hey, Jerkface... lose your attitude. The fact of the matter is this was posted. It was about a U.S. Marine, not a UK Soldier. People come to this site to view the content and someone submitted this so they could do just that. If you want to see the commentary on a video about a UK Soldier coming home... go drating find it and submit. But, don`t come on here and issue vague accusations that "we" only care about U.S. Military stuff just because it`s all we have to look at.

I have fought beside Polish, British and a few others and they drating rocked, btw.

You should count for yourself there has been more US casualties then UK and you can`t sit miles away in a tank in a war with no battlefronts.

Yeah but the best part is the fact that the Westboro Baptist Church planned to protest this funeral and the first one to get in town got his ass handed to him by a local. Then they were all rounded up by the sheriff and detained for several hours during the funeral and questioned about some alleged crime. Turns out the crime never happened and they were released. Good job guys, first time I`ve ever been proud of police action!!

it think what maximumtroll said is right.
Of course, the act of risking and giving for your country (it doesn`t matter if it really helps your country or not) is a very noble one and should be honored. But the wars you are in are highly unnecessary from a security standpoint. You can`t just allow your government to start wars and then make sad videos about the fallen to "make up for it". Your soldiers may be honorable, but they are not fighting the "good" and "necessary" fight.

There`s a village in England called Wootten Bassett, near RAF Lyneham where every day that a British serviceman or woman comes home, the people line the streets to honour the cortege as it passes. The Government has bestowed the honour of making the village a "Royal" village, renaming it Royal Wootten Bassett, but the locals have politely rejected this, so the repatriations have been moved to another air base. This is the first time in over 100 years that a town or village has received this honour. Get a lump in your throat about that, and count up how many of UKs boys have taken IEDs or sniper shots while US troops are miles away in their tanks.
