Fallen Hero Tribute

Over 150 years ago, President Lincoln recognized the important role those left behind play in our continual fight for freedom. He said it is for us, the living, to dedicate ourselves to the unfinished work, which they, who fought, have already so nobly advanced.

The song, “The Soldiers Left Behind,” written by CW3 Donald Clark’s wife, Jamie, prior to her husband’s deployment, powerfully embraces this same sentiment, made all the more poignant due to his untimely death in Iraq. The lyrics compellingly convey the life story of Family members and Survivors, concurrently illustrating the daily struggles they face on the home front, while their love ones are off at war or long after they have made the ultimate sacrifice in battle. As her song states, the Survivors we are here to so proudly support are “warriors of a very different kind.”

On July 3rd, 15,000 attendees of Fort Rucker’s Freedom Fest honored these brave service members and “the Soldiers they left behind,” as they viewed this video tribute dedicated to those who gave their all.
