Album Notes
In remembrance of the brave men and women who gave their all. Song performed by Joe Bouchard, music and lyrics by John Elwood Cook. A quote from the songwriter: "I wrote this song to honor my mother's brother LT. Elwood Krisher who was a WWII P-38 fighter pilot. He survived 60 missions and could have come home, but chose to stay and fight. In late 1942 he went missing in action somewhere over New Guinea. He left a proud heartbroken family and a lover. This song is for her."
