Don't do it.  Don't press play on this video unless you've got a full box of tissues and are ready to shed some serious tears. Once you've got your tissues in hand, go ahead and watch this amazing video of soldiers returning home to their families.

In the words of Jeff Foxworthy:

Independence Day is not only about hotdogs, fireworks and swimming. We must never forget that ordinary men accomplished extraordinary things to found our country. Today, I celebrate a nation rooted and established on Christian principles. Thanks to all those, past and present, who have fought to preserve the freedoms we enjoy. God Bless America.

 

Have your tissues? Hope you're ready:
