    Very touching for those who served in Iraq espicially.



    Edit:

    Just found the Lyrics -

    "Fallen Soldier" by Nathan Fair Copyright 2011

    Medal that his dad gave him
    Tucked away in his duffle bag
    He said don't worry about a thing Pops
    You'll be gettin' this when I get back

    Walkin' down the road
    Through the city on a routine patrol
    Shots rang out and he hits the ground
    Sergant yells "Man down!"

    (Chorus)
    This is for the ones who aint comin' back
    Who fought for their Country in Iraq
    And they left their families at home
    To come over here and die alone

    I carried his coffin onto the plane
    And gave a salute as they read off his name
    We packed away that duffle bag
    And the Silver Star he got from Dad

    There was one old man when we got off the plane
    With no one there for him to greet
    But the whole damn company shook his hand
    We were brothers to the son he will never see

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Agreed a very good song and awesome lyrics. Glad the war is over. A great tribute to the fallen may their sacrifice not be forgotten.

    I have been one of the fortunate ones that have not gone to Iraq though if called I would go in a heart beat. This is really a touching song and the guy is amazing. For those who serve, served, and will serve I salute you.

    Try to keep the politics to a minimum to keep the thread alive. I thought it was a good song and a nice way to pay homage to his lost friend...

    Great song ... great tribute.

    You can't say enough good things about those who put their lives on the line for the freedoms we enjoy here at home.

    I may be Canadian ... but we've been through a lot together lol

    It's not politics. It is a great song to pay respect to all that have been there when buddies have died over seas. I know 3 people that have died over there. I was just down the road when the events happened. It's not just about his lost friend, but all that have been lost over there.
