As Veteran’s Day approaches, I am ever so cognizant of the fact that Freedom is not free and that our young soldiers sometimes pay a very high price for the liberties we all enjoy today. Someone else that knows the price of freedom is Josh Gracin. As a Marine and an artist, Gracin presents us with a unique opportunity to recognize those who serve, those who have served, as well as all of their families. To help promote his new efforts with the Sears Heroes At Home program Josh wrote a song that reflects a young war widow’s story and her commitment to keeping her husband’s memory alive. the song is called “Can’t Say Goodbye.” I’m warning you it will bring tears to your eyes.

Josh Gracin is involved with the Sears Heroes At Home charity. “Can’t Say Goodbye” is not only the theme song and helps in remembering our troops and what they do for our country, but all of the proceeds from the song benefit the Sears Heroes At Home program which helps military veterans and their families.  Gracin is promoting this song to further help him promote the cause. On Veteran’s Day, please tell every service man and woman you see, thank you for serving in our nations first line of defense, the United States Military.  Friday November 11th 2011 is Veterans Day and a parade is planned for our local Veterans past and present and additional memorial ceremonies will take place through out west Texas. Do you plan on attending and if so which one?
