I WROTE THIS SONG: from poems that my dad wrote while he was serving during the extraction period of the Vietnam War. I wanted to tell a story from a soldiers’ perspective and make it as real as I could. Originally I wrote it for my dad, but when I realized the impact it was having on people, it just became so much more. It truly became a way that for me to give thanks to our men and women in arms.
