A tribute to our Fallen Heroes – Coming Home

This amazing video was done by a small production compnay in the UK called Myrtle Productions. The song is entitle Coming Home and is sung by The Soldiers.  The amazing art is done by Michael G Reagan founder of the Fallen Heroes Project. I have blogged many times about Micheal’s work. For those who are not familiar, Michael is a world renowned portrait artist who now draws almost exclusively portraits of Fallen Heroes who have died in the fight against terrorism. He presents these portraits as a gift to the families free of charge. He’s been getting a lot of recent media coverage in the United Kingdom because not all the Fallen Heroes are from the US. I urge you to follow the link to the Fallen Heroes Project site and donate generously.

The Soldiers – Coming Home

(Jake Hook , Nicholas Patrick , Jeffrey Chegwin)

Every soldier who gave their life lives forever
Every soldier who fought the fight echoes in our minds
All the wounded and the brave
The ones God couldn’t save
We salute your courage

Coming home with pride ( Coming home with pride )
Coming home with heads held high ( Heads held high )
Coming home from lands afar
Coming home ( Coming home ) to your loves

All those heroes who defend our flag will live on forever
All the heroes , both young and old , that soldier on to unknowns
From across this changing world we live in the hope
That you come back home

Coming home with pride ( I’m coming home with pride )
Coming home with heads held high
Coming home from lands afar
Coming home to your loves

I’m coming home

( Coming home ) I’m coming home with pride
Oh , Coming home with heads held high
( Coming home ) Coming home from lands afar
Coming home , Oh , to your loves
Coming Home from lands afar
Coming home ( I’m coming home ) to your arms
I’m coming home to your arms

    I actually have a large Pencil drawn portrait of a walking Lion done by Michael in 1979. He was still in his early stages, but was doing a showing in the lobby of the bank I worked in and I loved the piece and bought it. I still have it and have always had it hung on my walls. I knew he was talented then; so glad to read what he is doing now.
