    The lapel pin the gentleman was wearing around the 1:20 mark? No words.

    This was the only commercial I watched tonight and it made me cry.

    The gentleman who couldn't finish his sentence quite nearly shattered my heart.

    Jon was actually the one who noticed the Mickey pin...I'll convert him yet :)

    I have to admit that I think this was my favorite commercial. I didn't notice the Mickey pin during the commercial though.

    A far cry from what we saw in the 70's.

    And thank God for that!

    Here here Tom. My brother was a Vietnam Vetran and the whole events of it left him really screwed up. He had a ton of issues upon his return. That is not to say that he may have had a few before he left for Nam. I was kind of lucky. I actually had a draft number, but the war was winding down at that time and I am very thankful for that. I would have gone without question.

    I'm a Vietnam era Vet as is Tom. I however, did not actually serve in Viet Nam, though I volunteered. Our vets who returned were actually frowned upon rather than treated like heroes.

    Then if I haven't said it before...I thank you John, and Tom for you distinguished service to your country.

    It is absolutely shameful how the Vietnam vets were treated. One can disagree with the war but still honor those who fight. Especially those who are drafted

    I had such a different idea of how vets were treated.

    I find it very sad and even shameful that they are not given more and treated fairly.
