The National Defense opens up this week by speaking with Marty Brounstein to
talk about his book "Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of
Courage in the Holocaust." Marty talks to Jerry and Randy about the nature of
the Holocaust, and the people he highlights in his new book. For the millions
affected by the Holocaust, there are stories of regular people drawn to heroic
acts, and Marty's book highlights just a few of those. Check it out wherever
books are sold.
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."
