Tonight, Chile's Camp Hope is living up to its name, and then some. Call it: Camp Success. All 33 miners are out.  Six rescue workers still need to be brought to the surface. We'll bring you live coverage from San Jose Mine where there have been a lot of cheers and happy tears over the past 22 hours.

    Each one of these amazing men are heroes. Their bravery and strength will be admired by all around the world and it forever be remembered. God is so faithful and were with these men every step of the way! Glory to our father in Heaven and blessing to the miners and their families!

    As a resident of West Virginia, I can't help but recall Sago and the Upper Big Branch coal mine disasters. I am elated that the Chilean miners have all been rescued and that the families did not experience the heartbreak and loss of the West Virginia coal miner's. God Bless to the Chilean miners, the rescuers and their families!

    I'd like to see a picture of the Phoenix capsule before and after. It was painted and clean to start, and after 39 plus round trips, the wear and tear provide yet another indication of how dangerous and how miraculous this rescue effort was.

    Is nice to see they completed it. Did you all notice the last person (rescuer) stepped out of the capsule (Phenix) at 33 past the hour. Think they planned it that way???

    Are we giving the USA any credit for the rescue of the Chilean miners' rescue? It was the USA who came up with the equipment and drilling the hole that eventually dropped the capsule to free those men. Viva USA!!

    Were the miners able to see what was going on up above as each miner was brought up and reunited with their loved ones and greeted by the president of Chille?
