I want to share with you a very stirring song that was sent to me recently.
It is "Come Back Home" by Pat McGee.
Pat McGee heads up the Pat McGee Band from Richmond.
Like so many Americans, Pat has been personally affected by the war. Last March his friend and drummer's brother Blake Williams was killed in Iraq when his HMMWV was struck by an IED.
Blake was on a return deployment to Iraq. He was 26 years old at the time of his death.
His loss inspired Pat to write "Come Back Home", and it was used at a memorial service by Blake's unit as they honored the memory of the brothers they lost.
Please check out Pat's song set to a slide show,
and this spring he is playing up and down the east coast so you can see him in person.
