    Here’s one for The Gipper. Sadly, the ones who need to listen to this most probably won’t. OR it’ll go left to right with minimal impedance.

    My goosebumps have goosebumps.

  3. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    The second President I served under – my first Commander in Chief.

    Tears of Pride!

    Awesome-I attended Reagan’s funeral in 2004. Thousands of people lined up for hours in the heat to pay their respects to a truly great man. I also remember how reviled he was by the left in the 1980s. Now they try to tell us that he couldn’t be a Republican today, there is no lie or distortion that the left will not resort to in furtherance of their aims.

    Got something in my eye….

    I will never forget how quickly our gear got better after Reagan took office and how much more ammo we had for training. He was no bullsh1t on making sure we were ready to stop those commie b4stards.

    Rest In Peace Mr. Reagan.

    That’s my all time favorite video.

    “Lord? Where do we get such men?”

    I remember getting a special tour of the Reagan Library back in about 2005 with a group from another board, including a walk-through of his and Nancy’s offices (which she still used at the time.)

    Chills. No other word to describe the greatness one felt in that room.

    Tears, goosebumps and chills. Hard to imagine one video giving all three.
    NSFW. It took me quite awhile to re- compose myself after watching this.

    God,,i miss that man! i ETS’d 3 months before he became CiC

  12. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    It should be noted that, although President Reagan did have great speech writers, such as Peter Robinson (the famed 1987 “Tear Down This Wall” address) and Peggy Noonan (“Boys of Pointe du Hoc” 40th anniversary of D-Day, Challenger explosion speech “slipped the surly bonds of earth… and touched the face of God”) … he outlined everything, conducted meticulous editing, and practices to the level of pure memorization before every oration.

    His early works … as submitted above were all his own!

    The Great Communicator!

  13. Biermann says:

    Best boss ever!

    I love this video. I show it to my squad every once and a while to pump them up.

  15. FatCircles0311 says:

    Reagan’s speeches are timeless.

  16. Eagle Keeper says:

    A skillfull amalgamation of spoken word and video, I must say. Like all good propaganda.

    Don’t think. Just genuflect.

  17. Jenn says:

    Wow. I watched this 4 times. Truly inspiring. We need a leader like this in America again.
