Marines Watching And Singing ‘Let It Go’ Will Melt Your Heart

We all have a Disney princess inside of us. Even the tough Marines do. Though the hype over Disney’s smash hit Frozen has ended online for the most part, many troops serving didn’t have the chance to see the animated film in theaters. Now that the movie has hit DVDs, even the Marines are getting their Let It Go on. 

Marine Bill Nuche posted this adorable video of him and a few of his buddies watching the famous Let It Go scene, and now it has exploded online. Bill has since taken the video down after being requested by upper-command, but as he says it’s too late now to stop it. 

Piers Mettrick is just one person to reupload the video which in just one day the video has amassed over a quarter million views!
