Mainstream popular music videos since 9/11 featuring soldiers

Our country has been at war for six and a half years. How much has the awareness of our military at war penetrated popular culture? One indicator is American popular music videos. I can only think of five music videos since 9/11 that feature soldiers - and four are country music videos. I'm not much of a music fan, so a music video has to be played a lot before I become aware of it, and most of the time, not even then. So, take this compilation of music videos since 9/11 that feature soldiers with a grain of salt.

Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends (2004):

Toby Keith - American Soldier (2003):

Brad Paisley and Allison Kraus - Whiskey Lullaby (2004):

Trace Adkins - Arlington (2005):

Big & Rich - 8th of November (2005):
