I love this episode from start to finish. The ending still makes me cry (OMG when Rossi says "Welcome Home Marine" and Scott says "Oorah" tears just stream. And that final song is just the icing on the cake. Loved the way they dealt with Scott and the flashbacks gave great insight. Loved seeing Rossi as anything other than the cool calm collected guy we know and love today. Also loved the whole "Vets helped you now you have to help them" tone of the episode. And I also loved the fact that the homeless were dealt with in a respectful way (unlike some other shows I have seen)
However - did anyone else catch the slip up in Rossi's alleged age? In Season 3 he says he is 52. So 5 years later he should be 57 (unless i have suddenly lost the ability to count?) The youngest guys in Nam were 18/19 - so if Rossi was 18 in 1969 (as that is the year the flashback states) then he is in fact 62. When did he suddenly get 5 years older in one year? :) Still my absolute fave though!
