Fighting overseas comes with more pressure than we civilians could ever imagine. Heading out into the battlefield with your buddies flanking you, the enemy surely hidden deep within a sandy landscape and the promise of gunfire all combine to make a heart-racing scenario even more stressful.
So when our brave servicemen and women finally have a chance to relax back on base, they take full advantage of it. That’s what these soldiers did one afternoon – and they decided to make a video to capture their fun break from war.
After hours of brainstorming, the soldiers got together and performed a rendition of Carly Rae Jepson’s hit song “Call Me Maybe” that was too funny for words. The men first saw this type of spoof video from the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders – but they knew they could make a video 10 times better.
They gathered the troops and their video equipment, it was time to make a music video!
The men sang their hearts out while dancing all over their military equipment. Days spent in the unrelenting desert sun can get tiresome – so it felt nice to let loose and enjoy the day with their fellow soldiers. Normally, they’re watching each other’s “six” on the battlefield, but today they got to watch each other boogie.
By the end of the video, even those watching at home were singing and dancing along with the men.
It takes someone very comfortable in their own skin to dance on-camera as these men did. The soldiers didn’t think twice before sharing their silly video online. They thought their friends and family back home would get a kick out of their version of “Call Me Maybe ” – they had no idea that millions across the county would tune in to check out their video as well.
It seems as though everyone loves these boogying, battling soldiers.
Watch the soldiers’ hilarious video for yourself below. They definitely deserve to have fun while fighting for our freedom!
It all began when Skye’s mom began noticing small bruises on her baby girls body prompting her to take her to the doctor. After multiple exams and blood work it was determined that she was sick with leukemia. Heartbroken, her parents found it hard to learn their baby’s diagnosis but began doing everything in their power to help little Skye. Little did they know that a woman named Hayden would soon come into their lives and impact it forever.
While Skye was receiving treatment in California, Hayden, who lived in Alabama, was in college. Unsure of her future, Hayden was struggling with finding her purpose in life. That’s when she came across a flyer asking for bone marrow donations through the organization Be The Match. Immediately, Hayden called the number for more information, soon enrolling to be a donor and being paired with little Skye.
After the donation Hayden was desperate to meet the donor recipient and their family but due to regulations they were restricted from contacting each other for one year or knowing anything about them. Fast forward one year later and the family contacted Hayden to thank her for saving their baby girl. From that point on a beautiful relationship was born.
Hayden desperately wanted to meet them so she invited the family to come to her wedding stating, “I know that y’all are all the way out in California, but I just want you to know that you’re wanted here.” On the day before her wedding Hayden finally got the chance to meet little Skye – and the moment couldn’t have been any sweeter. Watch the full story in the video below. Thank goodness for wonderful blessings such as Hayden and Skye.
