A hymn especially for Veterans Day 2022.
Dr. Mary Rorro's special song for Memorial Day.
I wrote the song 'Fading Messengers' with the forgotten soldier in mind, especially those who paid the supreme sacrifice, like those entombed in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier monument and USS Arizona in Hawaii. I visited Pearl Harbor in my early teens with family and I couldn't get the thought out of my mind about those men buried alive, underwater. My dad was a World War II veteran and I've also come to realize that many often wonder what Memorial Day is about. I approached the song and video with some of these thoughts in mind.
Most veterans do not talk about their experiences, especially to people they do not know well. I notice today more veterans proudly wearing ball caps with their veteran’s affiliation and the war in which they fought. I am happy to see this happening; it is about time.
My song honors our Military at Christmas time. There are very few if any such songs that honor our Military at this special time of the year.
A Song and Video to honor veterans, the Armed Forces, and their families.
This song is for those we lost, those we dont want to lose, and those who still suffer. May we all find peace and healing in it.
What does a fallen soldier want?
Over hil, over dale
A Memorial Day song with a prize ending (but no fair skipping to the end and just listening to the last note)
