Re: Still Fighting The War,
I'm a Canadian Vet with PTSD. How did you know brother, how did you know how it feels. Amazing work. Thank you. Keep em coming.

Sorry for the delay - looks like you wrote me at the end of a hectic tour. (What am I saying - you, as a vet, have seen tours 100 times as hectic as mine). It means the world to me that the song resonated with you. My sources were primarily 1) a friend of a friend who was a troubled Viet Nam vet, and 2) the photographs of Craig Walker: https://www.pulitzer.org/winners/craig-f... Thanks so much for writing, -Slaid
