I'm going to move this in a moment. This is in Category:Online Content, but that's not how we title such pages (and while we do have Category:Online Content Guests, that's not really appropriate here either, since it's the video itself that's relevant and the soldier is present, like the use of real military families in some of the resource videos and so on). My browser is giving me fits so I'll have to close in a moment, but it seems the title of the actual video is something like "Happy Birthday, Army from Sgt. Major Chandler and Sesame Street." I'll check as soon as my browser lets me, and then I'll move to "Happy Birthday, Army" (and we can note the full detailed name in the article). Since this is a one-shot YouTube video and not a series, full campaign, no title card, etc., it seems to make more sense to use the shortened version which is still clearer about what the video actually is (right now, seeing the name plunked into the category reveals little). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 02:06, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, the full YouTube video title is "Happy Birthday, Army! From Sgt. Maj. Chandler & Sesame Street." So shortening to "Happy Birthday, Army!" makes sense as a title. It's that or make a page for the Usarmy YouTube channel, but for now, that makes most sense (and in the video itself, Sgt. Major Chandler calls himself Ray; not doubting the accuracy of the F. and III but not really needed in this case, and I imagine it was added originally just to avoid disambig problems with Raymond Chandler). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 02:13, June 15, 2012 (UTC)
