Soldier and daughter stun audience with national anthem | Militarykind

♪ Oh say can you see ♪ ♪ By the dawn’s early light ♪ It was a moment that neither
one of us will ever forget. (upbeat music) We have six daughters. They range in age from sixteen to eight. No twins, all ours. We’re done now. That’s
a lot of girls, right? I’m telling you, I feel, I’m so blessed. And I love my girls, I love
my wife, and it’s an amazing, amazing, amazing journey. I was in the Army when I was a young guy. And I came back in. And our whole family sat
down and made the decision to come back in, go
active, live on post, fully embrace the Army life. And so it’s, we’re having a blast. (clapping) My wife and I, we both sang in college and you know, we traveled
in different groups representing our colleges musically. So, I mean, music has always
been a big thing in our home. But for the most part,
you know, people who walk around singing are generally happy. So when we hear our kids singing, just as they walk around the
house, I like that a lot. It means this is a good, safe
place, just open up your mouth and belt it out. You’re not going to be
judged, you’re going to be, you know, affirmed and celebrated. So it’s a good sign for me,
that my family likes to sing. ♪ Today I don’t feel
like doing anything ♪ ♪ So let go ♪ ♪ My soul ♪ ♪ And trust in Him. ♪ ♪ Don’t make me close one more door ♪ ♪ Don’t make me close one more door ♪ ♪ I don’t want to hurt anymore ♪ There was one point where you
could just make weird noises and tickle them and you know,
play goofy little games, and that was great quality time. It doesn’t work with teenagers, right? And Reagan loves to sing and you know, I enjoy singing as well
with her. So it has been a great connection point. So that’s really… Every once in a while
she’ll just grab me and say, “Hey, let’s go sing,” and so
we’ll run out in the garage and just sing. So she called me, I was
on my way home from work. She’s like, “Dad, will you come sing the Star-Spangled Banner, the
National Anthem with me? And I hadn’t eaten. I’m hungry.
A little grumpy, you know. I’m like, “Oh God, I
don’t want to do this.” But of course, I didn’t
say that to her. I’m like, “Yeah buddy, I’ll be over.” I ran over and we went out and sang it. And that was ridiculous, man. ♪ O’ say can you see ♪ ♪ O’ say can you see ♪ ♪ By the dawn’s early light ♪ ♪ What so proudly we hail’d ♪ Just the moment, you know. The looks that we were exchanging, She was looking at me
and I was looking at her and just the confidence
we had in one another and the love and the
energy. It was really cool. ♪ through the perilous fight ♪ ♪ O’er the ramparts we watched ♪ ♪ Were so gallantly streaming? ♪ ♪ Were so gallantly streaming? ♪ ♪ And the rocket’s red glare ♪ ♪ The bombs bursting in air ♪ ♪ gave proof through the night ♪ ♪ that our flag was still there ♪ ♪ O say does that star-spangled ♪ ♪ O say does that star-spangled ♪ ♪ Banner yet wave ♪ ♪ Banner yet wave ♪ ♪ O’er the land of the free ♪ ♪ O’er the land of the free ♪ ♪ And the home of the brave ♪ ♪ And the home of the brave ♪ (applauding) I was really proud as a dad. I mean, just a really cool moment. Yeah. It’s kind of fun to watch
each daughter find her lane, find her niche, find her
place, and then just, you know, be assertive. It’s really cool living
with seven strong ladies. And Reagan is one of them.
She’s a very strong, assertive, And Reagan is one of them.
She’s a very strong, assertive, opinionated sometimes,
obnoxious as all get out, but I absolutely love it about her. I want her to be a strong lady. And she is that.

  1. May the Blessings from God forever continue to blanket your family πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ™πŸΌ

  2. Thank you for sharing this. I am a proud Army Mom of an infantry soldier that has served his 20 and soon to retire. Through his many (5) deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan over the years since 2001, the Army chaplains out on that battlefield have helped and made a huge difference n my son's life. Also the chaplains when he returned home, and ongoing. You, the chaplains job is a 24/7 job. Not only for soldier's, but for their families too. I thank you for a job well done ~

  3. Australia, what beautiful voices you both have, its a credit to both parents, what a beautiful family. The American national anthem has always been a favourite of mine. Its sung with such compassion. Its better than the Australian anthem, which most Australians don't know, as its too complicated, maybe when we become a republic it might change

  4. Anytime I hear this song it brings tears to my eyes. Thank you AND your family for serving my America. Beautiful job and love the father daughter singing this song together.

  5. As a military wife I can say there's a whole different bond than the civilian life. My family feels the same…thru good, bad, sad and lonely it's always better with music!! ALWAYS!! God Bless!!

  6. Bless u n family I luv the ways u people sing everywhere around your environment n u have a beautiful family God bless u all

  7. I would want my daughters to know how much I love them, but I would also want them to know that being a strong man includes being kind. That there is nothing weak about kindness and compassion. There is nothing weak about looking out for others. There is nothing weak about being honorable. You are not a sucker to have integrity and to treat others with respect. – President Barack Obama

  8. Thank God for all those beautiful, happy, healthy & most likely saved-by-Jesus daughters of a chaplain!! I wonder if the parents ever tried the scientifically-proven way to (most likely) conceive a boy. I would've been delighted with all boys, but thanks to timing, my last was a gorgeous girl! May God richly bless this family!

  9. Sir…you and your family exemplify the meaning of true to family, service, and higher power, bless ya'll and keep singing..

  12. First of all, thank you so very much for your service to our great and beautiful country, and to your family. I believe the family servers along with the the soldier. They might not be in the fight like the soldier, but they are the ones left behind to keep the family, home together and worry about their loved one's safety.
    Second, I hope you're beautiful girls realize what a great family you and your wife have created for all of you. I believe if we had stronger family units our country would be better and we wouldn't be in the mess we are now.
    God bless and keep you and your family safe, and again thank you and all who serve. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

  14. I grew up in an Air Force family of four siblings. Unusually, my father had custody of 4 young children when my parents divorced. I was 10. Growing up in the a military-service family with only one parent, my dad, I relate to this video. Thank you!! With love on behalf of Dad!

  15. YOU ARE BRAVE, I have three girls…..That fact is the main reason I left the military. I DIDNT WANT TO BEAT THE SHIZ OUTTA 18 YEAR OLD JARHEADS..

  16. What a great duo to sing our national anthem. It brought tears to my eyes. Just beautiful. Thank you for your service sir. And thank you to your entire family for serving our country beside you. God bless you and your family.

  17. Sir and Family, I'm retired Army (18.5 years medically honorably fully retired). Sir, its Men like yourself along with your family and their love and support is a major one of my things I miss wearing the uniform. Sir, I can tell you are the "Badass" Chaplain and so respected not just unit your attached with but with other units as well. Sir, Thank you for being awesomeness and for having most awesomeness family that is truly blessed and gifted from God. You'd have been truly most welcomed at my Field Artillery gun section during field exercises as you perform moral checks on the Soldiers and remind us about Sunday Field Church Services at Command TOC. But you're really walking the Gun Line cause you're one of the Chaplains whom absolutely, hands down, and NO Bullpooping LOVE them Soldiers and aren't complete for the day until you have walked the line.

  18. Thank you for your service. I from North Carolina and have great respect for our military, especially since Fort Bragg, Camp Lejuene, and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base are all just miles from my home. Did you know that in NC public school children have a holiday on Nov.11, mandated by our Legislator? Great support! The longest continuous Veterans Day parade in the US is in my hometown of Warsaw! Love the military!

  19. Goosebumps…..❀️❀️Beautiful…thanks for your service to our nation, and God….Also for being a super Dad to your young ladies…There has to be a Godly anointing to parent 6 girls….Hats off to You and your Mrs. ❀️❀️

  20. God bless all those that place their will on God’s side. A love of God and His truth found in His word. The time is upon us to watch and pray for our dear Savior’s return for His faithful few. As a remnant commandment keeping church let us be led by the Holy Spirit to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. By His great example help us to repent of and overcome sin in our life. The real enemy of souls. I’d like to share the truth about the true biblical Sabbath day is Saturday not sun day. Sun day worship is a pagan interloper into Christianity from 321a.d. Roman emperor Constantine. Bible sabbath is in the garden of eden and the fourth commandment and the lives of Jesus and His disciples. Truth! God bless this beautiful family with songs in their hearts. And the sacrifice of service. My husband and I have served. And we also serve our risen Savior. Much heartfelt love πŸ’•
    The day of worship will become the test for the seal of God or the β€œMark” of the beast. Just say no to one β€œworld” religion. Prayerfully consider God’s will for us eternally with Him.

  25. Absolutely beautiful! Thank you (ALL) for your Service to our country, for your family solidarity, and for that incredible song… our National Anthem!

  26. WOW, i had chills. Loved it, way to go. Oh dad, you have your hands full with 6 girls LOL. God Bless you and your family. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

  27. What an awesome family. The fact that the parents raised their girls to love God and to be strong is amazing. When they were singing the National Anthem you could see the love between dad and daughter. These girls know that they can call dad and he’d come running. That’s a man who is a great dad.πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
    Thank you for serving Our Country! May God bless you and your family abundantly.✝️✝️

  28. First thank you for your sevice. Your an awesome Dad hurray for you Sir. Plus your a mighty brave one with 6 girls. Your wife & daughter's are so so blessed.

    Maybe you could give parenting classes because that stuff doesn't always come naturally for many men. In fact I want to yell at most men that brag about, "I've had 3 children & never changed a diaper." & then laughs about it. I've actually told a man that even though he helped concieve a child, which took about what 5 minutes? I would be rather a shame to make that comment in public.

    Your a wonderful example of what you daughters will be looking for when they are old enough to get.
