I wrote the music for this one for the lyrics written by a young fallen Marine's mom, Marynell Winslow. She brought the lyrics to a songwriter's group I was running then looking for someone to help her put it to music. War is a terrible reality in our world. The courage of those who willingly put their lives in peril for the rest of us is worthy of remembering. This song was performed by a couple of Nashville singers at the Alabama Gold Star memorial celebration one year on Memorial Day. Ryan died on April 15, 2006 in Al Anbar Province, Iraq.
