Largest Re-enlistment Ceremony in US History

Was this actually the largest re-enlistment ceremony in US history? Did these soldiers volunteer to serve their country for another term in Iraq? Did it take place in what was formerly Saddam Hussein’s palace?

Snopes says it’s true.

    “next to of course god america i
    love you land of the pilgrims and so forth oh
    say can you see by the dawn’s early my
    country ’tis of centuries come and go
    and are no more what of it we should worry
    in every language even deafanddumb
    thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
    by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
    why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
    iful than these heroic happy dead
    who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter
    they did not stop to think they died instead
    then shall the voice of liberty be mute?”

    He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water
