If you get a chance to see it, Toby Keith's music video where he performs this song that he wrote is AWESOME! If I recall correctly, he wrote this song after 9/11. He wrote it thinking what his father would say about the terrorist attack. I'm pretty sure that I read that Toby Keith hadn't intended on recording it, but after much persuasion, he decided to perform it for our troops. You've just got to see his video.

As a military mom who's son entered Iraq at the very beginning of the war behind our I.D., this song was played often and loudly in our home through a pool of tears and prayers. God bless our military and men like, Toby Keith, who understand their sacrifice and their cause.

It is my understanding that Keith was not going to publish this song, only sing it live to the troops, but he had a meeting at the Pentagon and they asked him to publish. I'm so glad he did.
