Randy and Jerry are back together after Jerry's lengthy "assignment" as Jerry
discusses Randy speaking with John Amos, Jerry's CRUISE, and the most recent
word on the Veterans Administration and what the VFW is doing to help out
veterans. Randy and Jerry also speak about the funeral of a Vietnam veteran who
passed away and had thousands of strangers attend to his services.
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."
