  1. How heartwarming. Salutes and blessings to Mr. Brady and his companions in the receiving line.
    If I was able, I’d be there, every.single.day., offering my own hugs and sincere “thanks”, for their sacrifice and service.
    Thanks for posting this.

  4. My Young SGT had this same experience at DFW when he was on his way home for R & R, back in ’04. He said it surprised him more than anything, and he appreciated it.

  8. Thanks for sharing the video. (I sure as heck don’t watch the MSM voluntarily…) Makes me proud to see there are such good folks – they don’t know how much they are doing for the soldiers, but also for the supporters out there who may not get to be there except in thoughts and prayers.

  9. Thanks Jimbo for sharing that. Who said soldiers don’t cry, as I wiped the tears from my eyes

  11. How did I ever miss this one? That was incredibly moving.

  12. Thanks for sharing this. Support can be given in various ways, contact your local USO for more information on how you can best help. The Texas USO in conjunction with local VFW’s are some of the groups that sponsor the Welcome Home Committees. One of the guys featured Gerald Clore is a member of the USO. Bert Brady, the guy being honored is a member of the Dallas VFW.

    For those interested in participating in Dallas here’s the link for more info: http://www.dfwairport.com/heroes/

    Gerald Clore’s work inspired me to visit my local VA hospital and volunteer with wounded vets, which I did this past week. That too was an awesome experience.

  13. Young son was welcomed by these wonderful people at DFW when he came home on leave in ’05. He thought it was awesome. He found out one of the “welcomers” was from our town in Illinois and had moved to Dallas recently… it’s a small world! I can’t begin to thank them for all they’ve done for our military. Incredible.

  14. God Bless you Burt Brady and all of your followers. That story made me cry because there were so many in Vietnam who came home to angry Americans instead of grateful ones. We should be so grateful for all that we have and thank our soldiers everyday for giving us our freedom. God Bless our country….

  15. Thank you for sharing this and helping to spread some positive news. God Bless all those who go out of their way to make these service men and women welcome and aware of the support they have at home.

  16. Thank you for posting this, of course it was some time ago, but still. My uncle Gerald was featured on here and donates a lot of his time with the USO. He ensures that every soldier he can touch does not have the homecoming he had from Vietnam. He is a great man and so are the many that work with him and Mr. Brady. What they are doing is a great service to the men and women out here fighting for our freedoms we take for granted.

    God Bless our troops!
