Olbermann: How to Really Support Our Troops [VIDEO]

I found it impossible not to tear up while watching the touching footage of Army Reserve Lt. Thomas Bourne being reunited with his wife and two young sons after a long tour in Iraq. What's so tragic is that after just two weeks at home with his family, Bourne will have to return back to Iraq for another multi-month stint. Olbermann talks about how supporting the troops should be more than a bumper sticker or a meaningless brand name, and how it should be about supporting families like the Bournes. Check out the video to your right for more.
