Memorial Day Angel Flight


In the US, Memorial Day is a day we honor military men and women who died in service to their country.

A while back we did a post on Angel Flights, flights that bring soldiers killed in combat (heroes) home.

We'd like to post the shorter version instead of the remix today. (If you'd like to know how the song came about, check out our post USAF Angel Flights.)  This is a beautiful song and we feel it appropriate for Memorial Day.  Listening to it still gives us teary eyes and chills.

There's a dedication flashed onscreen to the "Red River 44."  If you'd like to know who this refers to -
"On September 17, 2008 seven soldiers from the 2-149th Aviation Task Force 34 were killed in a CH47 Chinook crash near Talil, Iraq."

This is for them.  And for all our military who have fallen in the line of duty.
