This touched my heart from beginning to end, tears falling throughout. So powerfully written. Our soldiers are so deserving of these ovations! And to be able to serve our soldiers in that way, would be such an honor!
What a great title for a truly heartwarming story. I love stories that teach, and now I'll never forget how to give an applause in sign language.

Told with feeling without the fluff. A great read.
This is beautifully written. Very moving.
This is beautiful. Before yay story was half done I found myself signing applause. I only know a few words and phrases, but Idid it in honor of all of the solders who come home like the MC. Beautiful job.
I don't shed tears much while reading stories, but this one got to me. What a splendid tribute! What a splendid story!
The touch of the Master's hand is obvious in this story. Outstanding in every way.
A beautiful story, gorgeously well-written. It shows so much about love and fear and support and family, about the beauty and pain of life. Great job!
Congratulations ranking 20th overall.
