Army Strong
Posted by: McQ on Friday, October 20, 2006

Ok, this is just an old Army vet who got a hell of a lot more from the Army than he ever gave it just being proud of his service.

Indulge me.

The Army's new ad campaign "Army Strong":

Not bad. Not bad. Good production value. I think the Army’s done a great job with this one. Although I suspect certain individuals would object to the idea that there is nothing stronger than a US Army soldier (they often have unusually jarish shaped heads and often keep bulldogs as pets).

Well you have to remember, Jarheads don’t live on this "green earth".

They have their own place.

Let be the first to add this here, as I await my sad Internet connection to fully load this masterpiece, that the war in Iraq is a failure and that whilst all this is very nice until you chickenhawk, Young Rethuglicans actually join up, who cares?

I Keeed, I keed, but I’ve seen this at Black Five and the comment trolls were particularly fond of that approach. I would expect the same here, just wanted to be the first in.

It’s a wonderful video..FINALLY the US Army is moving past, "College Money" or "Learn a Trade"...I agree that Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children will see this as a threat. It was very moving.

Any idea when or WHERE a 2.5 minute video advertisment like this can or will be aired? Or is this TRULY innovative marketing, "Viral Marketing" on the Web with the Army NEVER having to shell out that much cash to show it?

Yeah, well, between Dale and I we have 38 years of "anti-chickenhawk" to bust their a$$es with, so in the words of another VN vet "bring it on" (argh, quoting Kerry, how low can you go? Limbo!)

They’ve been showing spots like this before movies in the theater, so that may be what they have in mind with the length of this spot. Although it’s possible that they intend it to be viral, and certainly won’t complain if it ends up that way.

Pretty slick! Sure motivates this Vietnam era vet to encourage my 22 yr old son to sign up and become IED fodder.

Always wanted a kid I could nickname "Sgt. Stumpy"

Yassir!

I would love to see Rick walk into a veteran’s hospital and pull that line.

JWG: now why in the world would I want to do that?

As a well off capitalist in the top 3% income bracket, if I required hospitalization, I use my wealth accumulated since 1992 to purchase non-socialized quality medical care.

Beats the hell out of those inferior socialized government funded death houses.

You see, VA hospitals are for poor people. They don’t go there because vets are welfare leeches or for the top quality care, you know. Its all about the finances.

(Wow! I knew if I hung out here enough, I too would become a ’compassionate conservative’).

Next?
