I wish all a good day as we remember those who died that we might live in the greatest, most free country, ever, in the entire history of mankind.

This is a song I wrote and recorded shortly after having gotten BiaB for the very first time.

I posted this simply as a salute to the men and women who are in this forum and have spent a portion of their lives in the armed service of this country.

SOMETHING TO DIE FOR

Thank you for your service.... Semper Fi!!!

Really great work Herb! Really well developed and well written story. Pretty heavy bridge-kind of intense for the feelgood mood of the song. A pleasure to listen to this! Take care. Greg

I gave listen.
Performed well and your voice easily fits the country genre.
I sense the sincerity with your tribute.
Well done.

Just curious, since you said 'Semper Fi'....were you a Marine also?

Back to topic....
