    I just finished reading the book, G I Joe and Lillie, I had no idea until the end that it was Joe’s parents! Heart warming book and well written, so much love in that family, and this song just touches the heart! My Dad was US Army, died 2001. God Bless our Veterans!

    @Iamtheman4u2,

    Like Bill Cosby said (from “Himself”) –

    “I’m not the boss of my house. I don’t know *HOW* I lost it….I don’t know *WHERE* I lost it; I don’t think I ever had it. *BUT,* I’ve seen the boss’ job….and *I DON’T WANT IT!!* (I just love that line). XD And, maybe that’s what Joe Sr. thought, considering his wife outranked him. XD

  • Iamtheman4u2:

    @knightryderrwn Yes, Lillie was the boss in *THAT* house. ;)

  • knightryderrwn:

    @Iamtheman4u2,

    No prob. :) Interesting trivia — if you look at the tombstones at the very end of the vid, notice that Lillie, a Corporal, outranked Joe, Sr. (Private). Guess we know who was the boss in *THAT* house, don’t we? XD

  • Iamtheman4u2:

    @knightryderrwn Thanks for the reply.

  • knightryderrwn:

    @Iamtheman4u2,

    Yes. At the very end, Joe Bonsall says, “An American love story, not unlike a lot of others. Except that G.I. Joe and Lily was **MY FATHER, AND MY MOTHER.** ” — so the people in the video are very real – Joe Bonsall, Sr. and his wife Lillie.

    @jimsvideos please let this video play

  • ladilegionnaire1:

    how very unpatriotic to dislike this video, need a bus ticket, I am sure many veterans such as myself will help you!

  • Iamtheman4u2:

    Is this about real people? I don’t know much about this song.

    @onomatopoeia162003 EMI owns the rights…they are receiving the ad revenue from this video

  • onomatopoeia162003:

    @jimsvideos u could be in the partner program. and send the troops some stuff with the money.. even though money can’t buy everything.. but that’s just my opinion.

  • WilmaDTurcotte:

    Love G.I. Joe and Lily. I can’t tell you how many times I have watched this. They don’t play this type of music near enough,. Guess people like trashy ones instead
