Our songs were picked up and cut for the albums above. Our song, "Blue Collar Fighting Man" on the album,"The Voices of Born Again American", under exclusive license to Concord Music Group. 

And our song, "And They All Came Home But Me (Once A Marine)", on the album "Country Volume I" released by the military only record label, "To The Fallen Records". My friend Chad Van Rys is the artist on both of these songs. I met Chad in Ar Ramadi, Iraq when he was serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Chad recently started a new YouTube Channel called RegularGuy Radio, and he has some really great new original songs. Check out Chad Van Rys when you have some time.

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.

Doug M. Mixson Jr., Kirk W. Boland, and Kirk Wesley Boland Jr. finished the new song, The Folded Flag(Smells Like Freedom). The song started as a poem Doug had written after helping a Gold Star Mother during a flight he was on, when leaving Washington, DC in 2017.
