"I have been a member of the Patriot Guard Riders for a few years and recently recorded the vocals for a theme song. The PGR supports soldiers by attending deployments and welcome home's. They also support soldiers' families by making a presence at and protecting the sanctity of the funerals of fallen soldiers.
I wrote this song when I learned from my friend and PGR Ride Captain, Chuck Johnson, that the soldier suicide rate is currently higher than it was during the Vietnam war. I hope it encourages public support, during and after tours of duty, for the people who put their lives on the line for us. Thanks for listening."
