Veterans Day Mix

My father is a Vietnam veteran who lost his leg in the war. When I was kid my mom and I would accompany him to the local VA hospital whenever he needed to have his artificial leg examined or replaced. I was always struck by the message that graced the entrance of the hospital:

The Price of Freedom Can Be Seen Here

It's stuck with me ever since. Every Veterans Day I can't help but think of my father, my grandfathers (WWII vets), my uncles (Korea) and friends (Desert Storm). Regardless of my opinions on the current state of affairs I have nothing but the utmost respect for the men and women who serve their country. Some of these songs may may not reflect this, but take them with a grain of salt.
