My Chemical Romance - The Ghost of You

I first saw the video over at Troy Steward's Military and Afghanistan blog. Like him I was familiar with song but never paid attention to lyrics.

The video certainly puts in into perspective. To quote Troy, a decorated Afghanistan War Veteran: "I am glad that My Chemical Romance used WWII as a backdrop for this video and did not try to use the current wars, which would do nothing but spin this video into a political statement of what type or another. The message applies to any war, without a doubt. So even though it uses WWII as a visual for the song, make no mistake this easily applies to today's wars."
