I'm writing to you today, not as an Army Wife but as someone who truly appreciates what your spouses do for this country and your commitment to them in their service.
I came across this video on a MilBlog that I follow and I immediately thought that I should sign up here and send this to you all. I know you'd appreciate it very much. When I watch it and think about the story behind it, I just well up thinking about what you all much go through... thank you so much.
"Come Back Home was written in the wake of me losing my longtime drummer and former Army soldier John C. Williams. But the song started off as a reflection of how a military couple deals with separation. After the release of Come Back Home, Johns little brother was killed by an IED in Iraq. His name was Blake Williams. His platoon used this track as the audio to a memorial slide show presentation they did in March of 2008. It was for all the courageous men and women they had lost in the month of March. I am humbled by their service to our great country and I hope this song brings them some peace. My father served in Vietnam and I truly appreciate their dedication and bravery." - Pat McGee
