5:33 the people that interact with everything about it really is
5:37 its various movin each hour the day you're doing something that's gonna
5:41 apparently affect the rest of your life in a really positive way
5:45 we've learned a lot from the israeli soldiers
5:48 a lot of the things that they're going through a lot of the same things that
5:51 our soldiers are going through I think the service as really a model for us
5:56 what we can do in the states the District 5 realize that
6:00 the guys that are in the hospital's and the guys that are
6:03 stuck in their homes a with a smack stress
6:08 at I wanna reach out to them or to
6:11 creative branch over heroism in washington that's that's the real
6:15 opportunity here
6:16 we can take this hope for her was modeling we can build United States
6:20 to and the isolation that a lot of these guys feel
6:23 into involve more veterans and helping other veterans
6:26 are
6:30 G
6:34 are
6:35 you know we were always living the dream who was dreams to come true
6:40 regal the beginning of the movies in your warriors I have really dedicated
6:45 their lives
6:45 and the service to each other Bossley
6:48 every one of the guys here
6:51 it has an incredible story I've
6:54 felt completely accepted a
6:57 totally love by everyone we met online
7:01 is really humbles me a song its the first time since I love service
7:06 day I felt like I know what I want you in my life
7:09 I'm
7:12 and its this it's a so I'm
7:15 still lost some weight
7:18 but it's getting purvis death
7:21 I'm
7:24 seen the Brotherhood net over here is it has it's something that I've
7:28 been there seen the state's
7:31 I'm
7:41 room
7:43 when the band was playing and they were they were singing and
7:47 and all the talking going on I i mean i started to tear out
7:50 that was pretty incredible and I think there is a unit went on for our american
7:55 soldiers
7:55 and then I'd you know kinda
7:59 I guess try to compose myself a little bit
8:01 and a turn and i notice Chris breaking down was very overwhelming to see that
8:05 happening
8:08 became comfort to to understand that we were going through the same experience
8:13 during that
8:15 that Israeli veterans really took the time to make sure that we knew that
8:19 that it was okay and that they understood that 1 p.m. judged in any way
8:23 make it didn't really made me search questions like how can we create
8:28 something this powerful impact foreign states
8:31 the a lotta guys have a hard time
8:36 opening up in letting themselves be vulnerable to others
8:40 and to themselves really a you know yes was to cry
8:45 units was to showing sensitive emotions
8:49 when I say I want gonna try to help people come home at some talking about
8:53 coming home
8:54 in their hearts
