A soldier comes home to an unpleasant surprise. Check out more awesome BuzzFeedYellow videos! MUSIC Chandler Jacob Haynes www….


  1. theRawrpie says:

    I tried to google the guy to see if he’s really a soldier in real life (I
    was curious) and then I found out EVERY SINGLE PICTURE OF HIM ON GOOGLE ARE

  2. Louthelemonator says:

    Bad acting other than that buzzfeed guy from the grocery shopping stoned
    hes always gonna b on point

  3. MRWATSiT2YA37 says:

    Awkward? More like inappropriate and disrespectful!

  4. drhashtagyolo says:

    We should just treat our soldiers like normal people. I’m supposed no one
    asked if he ever trickshoted someone lol.

  5. 333keb says:

    honestly i thought the end was cute, and i understand the what he meant by
    he just wanted to tell stories of what happened, even if he is just an
    actor. im planning on leaving for the airforce in a few months for the
    pararescue and they see alot of shit.. the people asking the questions ive
    seen first hand happen to these guys coming home and its fucked up. coming
    home after that time to see that one person is what makes your visit home
    worth it. especially when they are still there for you. ive seen alot of
    girls turn away from their man because they cant wait and are slutty little
    bitches who cant go without a dick for more the a month.. it sucks for
    them.. coming home from seeing all that shit just to come home to noone..
    take it into consideration sometime..

  6. meow larry says:

    Ask him how many civilians he’s killed

  7. Alec Roberts says:

    wait are they brotther and sister friends or are they fucking i don get it

  8. Jack Kenny says:

    If you don’t support the military and troops (especially considering more
    than 95% of soldiers have no authority to choose who they fight, they just
    do what they are ordered), you shouldn’t be allowed to speak publicly. They
    protect your freedom to be ignorant, hateful and unrealistic. For anyone to
    call a soldier a murderer, a terrorist or something likewise, you shouldn’t
    be an American citizen. It’s a terrible shame a majority of Buzzfeed
    videos and subscribers push a radical liberal agenda that is so

  9. BubbleOnFire says:

    My best friend is in ROTC and I’m joining next year, currently she’s
    training me. People assume “Oh, ROTC? So you’ve shot a gun before?” My
    friend has, yes, they do target practice. However, because of my religion
    and beliefs, I refuse to hold a gun. Instead, I would like to be a medic in
    the hospital. I want to heal, not harm. 

  10. Mike B says:

    I don’t see how thanking a military man for his service is a bad thing…
    soldiers are so under-appreciated. Especially ones who are old and fought
    in Vietnam or the Korean war. You see old guys walking around with those
    hats that day they’re a veteran of the Vietnam war and stuff. But I doubt
    they ever get thanked for their service, and risking their life any more..
    once soldiers come home- they are forgotten about. A lot of injured
    veterans are forgotten about too.

  11. Kala Sundermeyer says:

    I love the people who come to videos like this and do nothing but complain
    about the content whether it be sexist, or whatever. If you don’t like the
    fucking videos that buzzfeed puts out then fucking leave. How hard is that
    aspect? Fucking internet trolls. -_-

  12. Cam Jones says:

    Only stupid liberals ask these questions…They know nothing about the
    military.They know nothing about service.Buzzfeed should stay away from the
    military because they know nothing about it.

  13. Claudia garcia says:

    Wow wat a dumb bimbo why wud she make him a party when all he wanted to do
    was to chill w her

  14. david long says:

    I found the video pretty spot on, being in that guys place for years and
    having to talk to friends and family about what you’ve been through and
    seen. Or trying not to talk about any of that stuff and just enjoy the
    ‘Now’ with everyone at a party. BuzzFeed, was good about pointing out all
    the different types of people that you encounter once you return from
    service. Not everyone is going to be that way, and this was a dramatic
    portrayal somewhat. Still I feel that the message was given that they were
    trying to establish, I can say first hand after doing several tours and
    still working over seas that this is very similar to what I encounter on
    each one of my trips home. All you wanna do is be you and enjoy your time
    but can’t because you are being badgered by others that are trying to grasp
    the concept of what you have been through. It does take a select few.

  15. Coca Pepsi says:

    its good to see that not everyone has been affected by propaganda and think
    the u.s are the good guys, no that was not sarcasm.

  16. Kai Loki says:

    In the 11th grade, my American history teacher invited a Vietnam vet to
    class. He was kind enough to bring his weapons and even a rocket launcher.
    This one asshole asked, “How many people have you killed?”. I literally
    said “Are you fucking serious?” Just so they could hear and I really didn’t
    care if I got in trouble. That’s the most disrespectful shit to do. After
    class, I went and apologized to him. I felt bad that someone could even
    have the audacity to do that. Please, never do this to anyone, regardless
    of your opinions on war or the people who fight it. 

  17. Emilio Reynoso says:

    It’s hilarious reading these liberal comments. They have no idea what it
    takes to keep this country safe, domestic and foreign. They attacked us
    (9/11) so we destroy anyone who was part of that group and supports that
    group to prevent future attacks. if you think all the civilians are
    innocent, how about you move to the Middle East and see for yourself 

  18. MJ WhiskyOmega says:

    I think the point of this vid was to show a soldier who wanted to just
    enjoy civilian life on his leave, yet is confronted by a lot of nieve
    people who either didn’t care what they said to him or cared too much and
    became nervous wrecks. Asking a soldier if he killed someone is so rude!
    It’s not an easy decision to take someone’s life and deal with those sort
    of combat situations without some sort of psychological trama and they
    don’t need that shoved down their throats by inconsiderate civilians who
    havn’t walked a mile in their shoes but act like they know all about it.
    They’re people too and this vid shows an excellent example of that. :)

  19. imthepanda11 says:

    Seriously ^^ I just love that ending. They look so happy. Even after what
    happened they were still able to smile and laugh. (^ v ^)

  20. Mark Quimby says:

    Sooooo accurate. 

  21. Netanel says:

    Looks like the Americans are pretty awkward when it comes to the Army, but
    it seems that they’re soldiers do get a lot of recognition.
    Because the Army is mandatory here (Israel) it’s not unusual to see
    soldiers everyday, everywhere, it has become mundane and since we are all
    obligated to join and everyone has been a soldier at some point (at least
    most of us here) we don’t really have this awkwardness or gratitude from

  22. Jonnathan Romero says:

    honestly the united states its a little too crazy about the military, and
    most people don’t even notice how much of that kool aid they are drinking

  23. GrayTimber says:

    This video and comment section makes me cringe so hard. I’m the daughter
    and grand-daughter to soldiers, so whenever I hear people who obviously
    have no experience around them ask stupid questions or act this way… it’s
    like it disrupts the usually calm “flow” about me. I try my hardest to stay
    calm, but who really thinks that it’s okay to ask these things. Who thinks
    that it’s okay to throw a surprise party on their first night back home–
    or sometimes ever. If you don’t have first-hand experience with something,
    don’t claim to know for sure. Moderate your opinions. Being extreme on
    subjects like this with 0 experience makes you foolish. And don’t just
    parrot the opinions of those around you. Do your own research.

    Thank you for your time, I guess.

  24. Lucas Cavendish says:

    wtf is a pop tart

  25. Rakkety Tam says:

    Its really awkward when people say to them “thanks for fighting for our
    freedom”… No soldier has died for freedom since WW2.
    what they should say is, “Hey, thanks for the oil.”

  26. BlueHyena says:

    It’s always funny to see a grown ass drunk man, asking questions like
    little kids based on what they saw in video games. Video Games and
    Hollywood seem to shape perceptions more than “real education”.

  27. Dippy Pants says:

    I know this will make Americans wet their pants but in the US, soldiers and
    the military in general are seriously over celebrated. They celebrate these
    stupid wars that America gets into like Iraq and Vietnam and treat the
    soldiers like they saved the world when most of the time they were just
    doing a job. A fucking job.

  28. Masrex says:

    “whats your real life KDR” well obviously he’s alive soooo… its probably
    at least 1 or higher, so there you go

  29. The dark Terror says:

    Lol. They go and kill off other people and their families then come back
    and enjoy their own families making them feel like heroes killing others.
    Messed up. 

  30. NFDIH says:

    Thumbnail show USA flag. You know America is not only one country in
    the world. Big head country.

  31. Marco Monroy says:

    You know what bothered me the most about this video?

    The guys fucked up uniform. 

  32. A Cat says:

    That’s great, congratulating American soldiers for killing innocent

  33. hatboxful says:

    Why the hell is he married to a asian? 

  34. Lucas Nicolás says:

    A soldier is just a legal murderer.

  35. Capt. Steve Rogers™ says:

    I don’t care what those damn liberals, conservatives or any political
    fanatics think of these men. The very fact that they leave their homes,
    family, loved ones, comfort zones, for the sake of serving their
    country/government who even at times talk shit about them, screw them badly
    in return, is just plain sad & horrible. However, the sacrifices they have
    to make on a daily basis is not easy at all.

    A soldier does not have a blank check to do what he wants during a war and
    is always responsible for what he does. You state your feelings excellently
    and it is impossible for those who have never been through a combat
    experience to know what you are going through in your thoughts and in the
    actions you have to perform during combat. You must live with your
    experiences the rest of your life. It’s very hard at times that you should
    follow the rules & not your heart. Many people think that you’re bad but
    you’re just a person. And like many, at the end you have feelings, you have
    a heart, a mind to think, but its your job and you should do what your
    asked to do. But many people forget that there is a “person” behind the
    job. A man with feelings and heart hoping that the world sees him more than
    the uniform.

    No, it is not easy being a soldier. They put their lives on risk everyday
    so most of us don’t have to. Many of these soldiers are genuinely warm,
    kind, friendly, and fun loving. After spending months and years overseas in
    harsh climate, environment, hostile societies & crowds, violent locations,
    bloodshed fields, these men return home with great hope & joy but scars as
    well just for people to treat them like shit in return. They don’t ask much
    but the least they could deserve is a little more respect or a mere thank
    Please show your thanks and support to your local veterans or current
    servicemen for the sacrifices they have made for your freedom today. It
    would mean the world for them.

  36. intriganto says:

    The worst thing is when you are coming back home, walking down the street
    wearing your uniform, and people stop you and thank you for your service.
    This is so awkward and embarrassing. 

  37. Sareena Roy says:

    while everyone here debates over their political beliefs may I just say
    this guy is fucking hot

  38. Eli Flint says:

    As a US marine, I do enjoy talking about training, and fun memories I have,
    but I don’t find it very enjoyable when people ask about the Front lines..
    I was there, I lost a buddy on the Front lines. I used to play war games,
    but now I don’t. Once you’ve had to live throughout that, it gets very hard
    to find enjoyment in that stuff. I get very emotional when people ask how
    many I’ve killed… at 1:46 I find that very well most may not agree with
    me, but I find it very well disrespectful. I get people don’t know what to
    say, but if you don’t have stuff to say, then just ask about personal life
    over seas (or in military). 

  39. Onat Çinkılıç says:

    It doesn’t matter what you say , if you killed even one human being in your
    life, then im done with you. I will have zero respect for you. All of the
    people defending soldiers in the comments are just soulless beasts who
    doesn’t value human life.

  40. Jaiy_ says:

    I don’t appreciate being called a legal murderer. There are things we do to
    protect our nation. So sorry if a few bad people have to be killed in the
    process. I’m not sorry for killing bad people. I’m sorry for having to
    protect handfuls of idiots like some of you people. 

  41. Jani Ⓥ says:

    Not all of us are completely proud of our time in the service, but hey, at
    least we have a volunteer based enlistment instead of a 2-4 compulsory
    service like MOST OTHER COUNTRIES DO, so yeah. Have fun sitting there
    casting judgement from your computer chairs. We joined so you don’t have
    to. Appreciate THAT at least.

  42. Buck Rogers says:

    and in reality soldiers are actually nervous wrecks. Suffering from shell
    shock, or PDST. Living with the memories of murdering innocent civilians
    tends to do that to you. This is true because the US armies number 1 killer
    is…… suicide. Who commits suicide? People who have regrets, doubt
    themselves, and who are forced to do things no human wants to do. When the
    people refuse to go to war the world will know peace. No thank you for your
    service. I prefer my tax money to help people, not murder people.

  43. TheGermanRat says:

    Where is, “hey dumbass! You invaded the wrong country and killed their

    Why can’t the world just be at peace like it did back in the caveman era??

  45. sandy ray says:

    All the people on here talking about how soldiers are just legal murders
    and shit have no fucking clue what the hell they’re talking about. I’m
    going to give u a little lesson about human nature. wars are about 2 things
    and only 2 things, ideology and resources with resources being the first.
    when u light up ur stove to make some food where do u think that comes
    from? when u plug in ur iPhone and the computer ur typing on right now into
    the wall socket where do u think the electricity comes from? do u think its
    magic? no it came from an oil field in Iraq or a gas field in Kuwait or
    some shithole country. this country is not energy independent and do u know
    what would happen if the lights turned off???? all of u ungrateful assholes
    will starve to death thats what will happen. id like to u see u talk the
    same shit when ur car runs our of gas and u can’t put more cuz we no longer
    control the resources.

    its all fun and games until ur iPhone battery runs out.

    Dear comments, can you calm down? Can we just enjoy cuteness, followed by
    an awkward party, followed by more cuteness? Srsly this was really cute lol

    I went into a public-‘ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
    The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
    The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
    I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
    O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
    But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
    But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
    But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
    The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
    O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

    Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
    An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
    Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
    Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
    But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
    O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
    Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
    While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
    But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the
    There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
    O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
    We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
    The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
    But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
    An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
    An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!

    YAAASSS!!!! Do watch AHS!!!

  49. PunkPanda says:

    Yeah the people are stupid but the soldier is even dumber . Killing people
    is never right 

  50. Keenan Cain says:

    Some people are such douches. They are missing the whole point of the
    video. Yes, soldiers kill people. Why? To prevent someone killing them.
    Yes, some soldiers are trigger happy, but that is a rare minority. Soldiers
    are soldiers because they want to protect the innocent. They want to keep
    people safe. I am not a soldier, but I do know that asking a soldier if
    they have killed people or how many they have killed is fucked up. They
    don’t want to talk about the fact that they had to kill someone. Why?
    Because they don’t fucking enjoy it. War is not a video game. War is war.
    War is real. While I hate the fact that wars happen, I will respect the
    people who are brave enough to risk their lives to go and fight for what
    they believe to be right.
