Paying tribute to America’s veterans, Presidential hopeful Herman Cain teams up with highly decorated Colonel Michael Steele to offer a powerful and moving message to the men, women, and families of our armed services.
Colonel Steele was the company commander of the Third Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment, during Operation Gothic Serpent, the basis for the book and subsequent movie, “Blackhawk Down.”
Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11th, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I, formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
From the Berlin Wall to Mogadishu to Iraq, Colonel Steele has served his country well, and Herman Cain is honored to have a friendship with a man so respected and decorated as the Colonel. Please join us in honoring our proud and heroic Veterans on this and every day.
Thank-you and God bless all our servicemen and women, and God bless America.
And thank you to the West Point Glee Club who accompanied Trace on this song. If you don’t need a tissue while watching this video, you don’t have a soul. God bless our men and women who have served, and continue to provide us the freedoms we so often take for granted.
And a BIG thank you to Trace Adkins. Love you, man.
This weekend on John Stossel’s show, he talked with Gary Sinise about all the philanthropic work he’s done with the troops, as well as the patriotic themes often seen on his hit show “CSY: NY.” Gary Sinise is one fantastic American, and I never knew just how many groups he was involved with until I saw this special with Stossel.
Honestly, when does this man sleep? Either way, I salute Gary Sinise and thank God for giving us such a special human being to look up to. If each of us could only give a 10th of what Gary Sinise gives to our fellow man, the whole world would be a brighter place.
Mike Huckabee had return guest, Josh Revak, on the show this weekend to play his tribute song for the Shane Woods Memorial Purple Heart Hunts, which take wounded warriors on big game hunts in Alaska. The fund was named after his close friend, Shane Woods, who was killed in the Iraq war. Shane grew up in Alaska, and these hunts help wounded vets transition back to civilian life, letting them feel once more like warriors.
The song he performed this weekend was one called “Sandcastles,” which he and his friend 1st Sgt. Aaron D. Jagger wrote together for a memorial service in Iraq. Before they could write another song together, Aaron was killed in an attack which also injured Josh, but Josh survived – Aaron didn’t.
100% of the proceeds for the music at JoshRevak will go to the Shane Woods Memorial Purple Heart Hunts. Please go listen to the songs there and download one or two.
