Amongst the reflections are the names of those whom lost their lives in the Vietnam War. 50% of all proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to the The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Fund (VVMF).

This song is written for my friend Dennis McCurry, a Vietnam Veteran who served in the 25th Infantry Division in the US Army in 1970. I wanted to tell his story the way he saw it. I didn't want to glorify war, make assumptions, or do anything less than give a voice to someone who deserved to be heard. His story is similar to many people who served in Vietnam who never got so much as a "thank you" or a "welcome home." Instead, they were disrespected, spit on, and protested. Some who returned home have spent the last 40 years dealing with PTSD, an issue affecting some Veterans of the 2 Gulf Wars, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
This song is dedicated to all Veterans as a small token of appreciation for their service to this great country of ours. Thank you and welcome home! Happy Veterans Day!
