The following was sent to me by a special Vietnam veteran friend of mine from Staten Island, New York – Lester Modelowitz (U.S Army 1966 – 1968, Fort Jackson S.C., Fort Lee, VA., South Vietnam, Fort Campbell, KY).
The following video is taken from a British series in which Gareth Malone, Choir master for the London Symphony Orchestra, has taken military wives whose husbands are all away in Afghanistan, and turned them into a choir. (Gareth looks about 16yrs old but is actually in his mid-30s).
Gareth and the wives wrote the song based on excerpts from letters written by the couples while they were apart. The single is out in the UK on Monday and thousands have been pre-ordered. All the money raised is going to military charities.
Click on the video, sit back and enjoy a few moments of a beautiful tribute to loved ones who serve.
