What is the name of the song? I just love it! I hope radio stations start playing it. Is it available in stores? What is the name of this band? I would like to hear more about them! Best wishes to Casey and Jessica!

I am glad he's back home.
But what's w/ all the publicity ? It seems like everytime a soldier comes home the news media makes a big deal out of it. hundreds of thousands of vets returned from Viet Nam .... but I don't recall all the publicity everytime a vet got off a plane. And speaking of 'Nam .... 58,000 soldiers died in 'Nam, and over 200,000 G.I.'s were seriously injured. That was a MAJOR war. These G.I.'s didn't get major media coverage everytime they walked off a plane. Iraq is a minor "skirmish"... compared to Viet Nam. I am very happy for all the vets that return from iraq ... but Iraq is NOTHING compared to Viet Nam. The media should stop visiting the airport everytime a parent reports that their son or daughter is comming home.

hey, i am casey's brother lucas, to those who were asking about the song, it is entitled, jessica's letter, and it is on my bands latest demo, the name of the band is "not quite there". the history of the song is cool. casey wrote a poem for jessica while he was in iraq and sent it back home to her and i so she could read it and i could turn it into a song. its a very touching love song...words from a soldier to his fiance.
