You can find prettier voices singing that song on TRvid, but you won’t find any rendition delivered with more emotion or symbolism. Well done, sir. Garryowen!

@H If anyone is interested in learning about the background to this lovely Scottish song from the Borders, which many Irish people have come to love so much they feel it is their own, a recent edition of BBC Radio 4’s Soul Music covered it in detail. It can be easily downloaded, & includes a haunting harmonic version by three siblings in Nova Scotia.

I swear this is a scene straight out of the ending of a movie. The way it started a capella, then harmonies, then the band came in, took over when he finished, the chorus came in, and all his grandkids came over, and he finished at attention with a salute. Someone put this scene in a movie please. Amazing

There is something about the dignity this man displays that is refreshing and heart warming. The way he sings and walks away with grace. He walks immediately into the warm embrace of his family and shows the love and gentleness that only a true man can show. General Dempsey is a model of American exceptionalism untarnished by jingoism or the savagery of our politics. We need more people like him.

@T KI love the entire series too. Being from Central Europe, I share your view of American school system, gun laws, healthcare system....and our evil socialism. DIsclaimer: Communists occupied my country for 40 years and I believe that the only good communist is a dead one. Honestly, I used to love America and I used to see it as the land of endless opportunities. But the more I learn about America and its inner workings (primarily from John Oliver, but from others as well), the more I am starting to feel more and more grateful to live in Europe. But hey, if we don't love America, we were probably taught to hate it, as Tom says.

@TheGaloglas the melody is Irish, though. Its derived from an Irish tune called "cleite na péacóige" from the 18th century. Typical brit attempt at cultural appropriation. With all the culture Ireland has had, sure we might as well give some of it to Scotland so they can craft their own culture from it. "Scotland" translated from its original means "Irishland". You're welcome, Scotland.

@sherp2u1 He considers himself an Irish-American. His family roots are in Mayo and Donegal and he has visited often. Brits get too hot and bothered by the ties between Ireland and America. It's entertaining to behold, but a little bit pathetic too... or maybe the word is 'insecure'.

So, what you may notice that if the children running up there is a little girl who kind of runs up a bit later. This is not one of his children, but the child of one of a soldier who died in training and whose family he helped out. It’s a tender moment for the child and shows his greatness that he is comfortable having a non family member join him at that time.

@Pat Aherne Jesus... are you ill-informed. Scots are a combined people of Picts, Anglo-Saxons, Britons and Scots, just because the name came from one contributor doesn't make us a branch of Ireland. Robert Burns didn't write the words for Gods sake. It goes back to the very start of the 17th century, and if anyone played a part of forming a "modern" version it was Alex Boswell.

​@Pat Aherne Its a Scottish song so suck it up and btw my parental family branch are originally from Leitrim. Its known in Scotland from at least 1605 and recorded in the Skene Manuscript which lists airs between 1615 and 1635. Ireland has many great songs of its own, this just isn't one of them.

Joined the Navy at 18 with 7k in the bank. I did janitorial and smoked a lot of pot in high school. Left the Navy after months with 32k in the bank. Invested 29k in the S&P in late 90. Started working at UPS, Exide Battery and did concrete on Saturdays. Invested 12k a month every month into Blockchain Investments Firm doing bitcoin mining, Cashed out 250k from the S&P and invested with my Financial advisor Lyra Holt Dean(Look her up). Cashed out and Semi retired at 31. Took a year off. Traveled. Came home and started working part time for the insurance, entertainment and pocket change. Work isn't work when you don't have to work. Becoming wealthy can be done in few years. It feels like 60hr work weeks. Feel the pain of discipline early or feel the pain of regret later. I wish everyone well!

Love this man, Gen. Martin Dempsey! Great heart and great soul. I however never served, i was 365 of 365 in the 2nd modern draft in the summer of 1970 (and I guess that I took that as a message when I was 19.) . I however, whatever my personal story, my family served in Viet Nam, Korea, WWII and WWI and though I don't claim any credit for what my father, my uncles and my grandfather did. I am so very proud of their service, the sacrifices and the choices they made. I'm a mutt from the British Isles (long in America since the 1600's) , with a little Cherokee thrown in. But the Irish and Sots-Irish is strong in me, and in my wife and my daughter. I would love to hear further of the his (Gen. Martin Dempsey) further adventures.
