It's not about the show but honoring the The Men and Women who give us our freedoms. Some seem to not appreciate what they go thru so we can post here ,sit in WB and worry about a GAME. Yes i really hope you alone in your thinking sir.

There are alot that go through alot to protect our rights and freedoms but there are also those that support those that go to fight our wars......We have a very large military and not all of us put ourselves in harms way everyday but if it was not for those at home those that deploy would not be able to fight......The point I am trying to make is all military members state side are deployed make sacrifices and without them as a whole we would be in a world of hurt!

Personally I think the 3 or 4 I've attended have been outstanding. Honestly not many different things you could do to make it more patriotic. Someone mentioned maybe bringing in a unit that's just come back from a deployment, that would be awesome for sure, but I think most people are happy with just being able to stand together in a stadium to pay tribute to our heroes. And for the record, anyone here who has served, thank you.

My dad is part of the unit that does the flyover every year. Its my favorite game of the year. I've gotten to get on the sidelines for a few games. Including Spurrier's first game against Florida in 05. I was also on the sideline for the Vandy disaster in 07. Its an awesome experience being down there for that.

Yeah, next weekend is supposed to be Military Appreciation Day. Homecoming is this weekend. Unless it has been changed anyway.

I saw it once back in 09 I think, when I was visiting for a game. I was in the Air Force at the time and was very moved by it.

To be perfectly honest, as the son of a Vietnam Veteran that was awarded a Bronze Star for his unselfish duty in the line of fire, I always get at least one tear in my eye on M.A.D. We should all be appreciative and proud, especially during band's individual branch of service performance, where the band plays the Marine anthem, Air Force anthem, etc., and the veterans of the respective anthem's stand to be recognized. Just breaks me up man. Totally awesome in my book.

I remember years ago after a game, when Spurrier coached the Gators to victory over our Gamecocks on M.A.D., I was at the Columbia airport to fly out on business immediately after the game and our flight to Atlanta was delayed. Wearing my Gamecock gear I hit the airport bar up and it was full of Gator fans waiting for the same flight. I got talking with a big group of them and they just raved over our ceremony. Best they've ever seen, how greatly patriotic it made them feel, etc.

Bottom line is the M.A.D. ceremonies at Williams-Brice are second to none, and should be greatly appreciated by all who appreciate their freedom.

Funny side note.. That specific day, during the flyover, the SC National Guard F-15's doing the flyover were late on cue by about 5 or so seconds. Anyway, when I finally got on the delayed flight to Atlanta, I sat down in my seat and a guy across the aisle, I guess sees my Gamecock shirt, and says "How'd you like the flyover?" and I said "it was great" and he says, "I was the lead pilot" and I was like "No way?!" and he was like "Way!" and then I told him "you guys were late!" Lazy-ass'd military guys, ;)
