    Ryan Spadola's story was quite moving but...

    Not tryna rustle jimmies here, but I don't understand why everyone makes such a big deal about these reunion videos?

    Why don't we show veterans we really care by not taking away their benefits, and kicking them out of hospitals & mental institutions instead making a spectacle to make people who probably don't even personally know anyone in the military feel fuzzy inside?

    I'm sorry but these videos are the definition of lame.

    Seeing those kids hug their dad made me feel happy. But also reminds me I'll never see mine again. I miss him so damn much |I

    Don't be such an extremist but people in here pretending like they actually teared up? :lol:

    I've volunteered and worked with hundreds of veterans in my life who needed REAL help... so to bombard our televisions weekly with these sappy ******** videos when 1000s of people are coming home not only physically injured, but mentally sick without any help is a slap in the face to the people who serve this country.

    I like the ones when they're reunited with their dogs better.

    And you don't think videos like these raise awareness?...specially in the world we live in today where YouTube is so big....someone might be touched by this video or many like these and actually go the extra mile to contribute, worst case scenario it sheds some sort of a good vibe amongst so much tragedy, seeing the genuine happiness of a child that can barely speak after seeing their daddy home is a slap in the face to veterans?...c'mon man..

    Caught this when it aired. Didn't tear up, but I can only truly imagine how it feels to be in a situation of a loved one returning home from active duty. Seeing them safe and sound is all you hope for.

    Never knew that about Spadola. Didn't like that my Jets released him. Hope he catches on in the league for years to come, or even returns to us.
