While I was at my nana’s on Friday, one our topics our long conversation was about our love of guys in uniform. Now I take full responsiblity for starting this topic but in my defense, we were already talking about music and Five Finger Death Punch and that’s how it started. She hasn’t watched any FFDP music videos that I know of and she may not want to yet. Anyways, most of every female in my family, (I don’t know about my Aunt Laurie) has a thing for army men. We melt everytime we go around them.
My nana told me Friday that she got to go to a dance with a sailor when she was younger and always thought they were cute. My papaw and Uncle David were both in the army. It runs in the family and all of us females can’t get enough. My love for men in uniform didn’t hit me until I was a Junior in high school. I blame my U.S. History teacher for that. We had to watch Fly Boys and Saving Private Ryan in class and I was hooked. A year later, I watched Stop-Loss, which is where this picture is from. Channing Tatum looked yummy in this film. Parts of it was very sad, but it was a very moving story. What these men do to protect us and when they come back to is just heartbreaking. I don’t want this to be a sad post so let’s continue on.
I always loved going to watch Grand March for prom and seeing the guys in an army suit. To me, it was always cute but it was kind of old-fashioned. You know me, I’m an old-fashioned girl at heart. Everytime I would see guys come before my lunch and set up a table to try to get other kids interested in the army, marine’s, and coast guard. It was like the most evilest thing ever. Until they walked past me and then I could melt and try to regain my mind before anybody saw me. I should never be able to watch war movies or music videos. I seriously should stand clear of both, because I usually can’t stop myself from watching either of them. Ok, I better stop this while I’m ahead.
