Default Young Men, guitars and freedom

I ran across this on youtube and just had to share it guys. You can clearly hear small arms fire in the background. These guys are fighting for our freedom. God bless our men and women who serve. Music truly is a blessing from God and it's cool that these guys are enjoying it despite their location.

Rick,

Who would worry about a drunk heckler ruining a song after watching those guys make the show go on?

Thanks for sharing.

Frank

What an inspiring and sobering video. God bless our troops and the job that they do defending our freedom. I am thankful for their sacrifice and I am glad they can find moments of joy through music admist a very, very difficult situation. Thank you for sharing this.
