Gentlemen,

I stumbled across this on YouTube tonight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSelWIBAPzY

Somehow, I'd never heard it before. Have you?

The song was co-written by Emmilou Harris about her father, an Air Force pilot vet. Very well done. Hauntingly beautiful.

I bet crsutton knows all about this, because he's the forum's numero uno Emmilou Harris fan.

Excellent song, beautifully sung, and a very moving video. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice, thank you. I believe that the opening picture of the eagle on the headstone was taken at Fort Snelling in Minneapolis.

I like the video to this song:

Never heard of it either, but think I have something in my eye now.

From the chorus, I am guessing that it was inspired by Green Fields of France https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kqba0IUdiBk
