WATCH: This Video Of the 82nd Airborne Singing ‘God Bless America’ Will Leave you Inspired

Published

Members of the 82nd Airborne Division, an infantry division that specializes in parachute assault operations into denied areas — and nicknamed the “tip of the spear” — recently created a video of themselves singing “God Bless America” as a tribute for the country they have so graciously agreed to defend with their lives.

It’s a stellar display of patriotism that will stir your heart for the great nation we all call home and is a fantastic reminder during these oh so divisive times in our political climate, that we are all Americans who should be proud of our heritage.

Check it out.

The 82nd Airborne, formed in 1917, is based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina; the division has sometimes been rated the best trained light infantry division in the world. Members wear the “AA” arm patch, which stands for “All American.”

As the USO notes, “Every year on Fort Bragg, combat engineers from the 82nd compete in a re-enactment of the World War II Waal River pontoon boat crossing, a bold combat maneuver that greatly helped the Allies liberate the Dutch city of Nijmegen. 48 U.S. service members from the 82nd were killed during the historic 1944 crossing and are honored today by 48 street lamps positioned along a recently built bridge over the Waal River.”

Some of the World War II exploits of the 82nd Airborne were featured in the 1962 Oscar-winning film, “The Longest Day.” After Hurrican Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005, units from the 82nd Airborne Division expedited evacuations, performed search-and-rescue operations and helped kept order within the city.

Now that is a beautiful display of love for one’s nation, a message that we desperately need right now, especially with the progressive movement dedicated to keeping Americans separated along political lines.

Sometimes it’s necessary to be reminded of who we are as a country, to look beyond politics and examine the shared experiences that bind us together as a people, and that’s precisely what these videos do.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
