Letter dated May 21, 2006: "Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful song with us and for the copies for my sons. I so appreciate it. It is important to raise student awareness of military service and sacrifice. It is too easy for students to go unaware of the history involved. Thank you again for your kind thoughfulness. We are playing the song at our school to help students remember that Memorial Day is much, much more than a long weekend. We really like the song!" Deborah Surroz-Miller, librarian at Antioch High School, Antioch, Illinois, who is the proud mother of two sons in the military!

Email received 04-28-06: "Thank you!  I was thrilled to receive this and have already shared it with the military on-line radio station I listen to, as well as my numerous groups/organizations. This will be a fantastic addition to the Tribute DVD currently in the works for my son's Marine Unit just returned from Operation Iraqi Freedom. I don't know how you found our support group, but we thank you for your work and your willingness to share with the families who wait and pray." Semper Family, Laura, Proud Marine Mom of LCpl Derek 3/1

Email received March 18, 2006: From Sgt. Tim Boggs, stationed in Iraq: "Dick, Thanks for the email and for the song. A friend of mine actually sent me the link to your song several weeks ago so it has been traveling pretty fast. I really do appreciate the sentiment and I know the other guys here do as well. One of the great things about both of my deployments is the support I have gotten from back home. I know a lot of attention in the media is given to the anti-war crowd but the soldiers in theater definitely see the other side a whole heck of a lot more. We have so much support it is ridiculous and there are so many people who want to do things for us that I feel embarrassed a lot of the time.
  Thanks again for the email, I love hearing from people who have found me via my blog or an interview that I have done.
  Take care, Tim Boggs"

Posted February 8, 2006: "Every once in a while, I take a chance on a piece of spam. I got this one recently: 'Here's a musical tribute to the courageous men and women of the American Military:'
OK, the topic intrigued me, and their weren't any typos or grammatical errors, so what the heck. Turns out to be the first non-country patriotic song I've ever heard. Pleasant, catchy, upbeat, cheerful and full of genuine admiration for those who serve. Musically, the clean, simple melody reminds me a little of Barenaked Ladies, except that it doesn't suck.
Anyway, Dick Eastman is mostly a songwriter by trade, but he picks up a guitar and sings, too, for this one. MP3 is free to download and the site encourages you to burn and share. Go check it out." Harvey

Posted February 5, 2006: "Honoring our heroes - The author of a new song has asked me to let my readers know about it.

If you, like me, enjoyed the song and its meaning, send the link to your friends." Antimedia
