Our friend, Kelly Coberly had cut some of our songs a while back. Kelly had success when she recorded our song, "Remember West Virginia Coal" and included it on her album. On January 1, 2020, Kelly released this new tribute video about the Sago Mine Tragedy, remembering the fallen, with her heartfelt rendition of "Remember West Virginia Coal".

Salute to my friends, Sharri L. Briley, Jordan Briley Neal, Micah Briley, Margie Kemmer Briley.  The song, "The Ballad of the Night Stalker (NSDQ)" , was written about my fallen friend, CW3 Donovan L. Briley. KIA 03 October 1993, Mogadishu, Somalia.


Later, the song was updated as a tribute to all members of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. That updated version is still looking for an artist to cut the song.
