#TuesdayTunes – Toby Keith “American Soldier”

Today I begin my new journey and path in my life. I am going back into the Active Army to finish out my career. I don’t know all were this will take me, but I am ready to give it a go. Being older than most of the people I will be serving with should be interesting. I have enjoyed my last 10 years in the National Guard and have made many friends, but now I have a greater task and purpose in my life. Please pray for my family as we will be apart for some time. I am an American Soldier….

#TuesdayTunes – Queensryche “Eyes of a Stranger”

Saw Queensryche back in 1992 at the Cow Palace in San Jose. It was their Operation Mindcrime tour and it was incredible. Geoff Tate has an incredible voice and they are an electric group in concert. I was about 6 feet from the stage and it was a packed house. When I was in Iraq in 2011 they were at my base doing a USO tour and I was excited about maybe getting the chance to see them again. Of course mission came first and I couldn’t go. Enjoy the amazing vocals and power of this song.
