John McEwen Salutes the Troops!

This is my tribute to our men and women of service,
 to our brothers and sisters who have made the
ultimate sacrifice.  May your bravery
never be forgotten.  - John McEwen
John McEuen (the Grammy-winning national recording artist and founding member of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, also known as the "String Wizard") visited Puerto Rico. 

While exploring the island of Vieques, he stepped into one of the old ordinance bunkers (in years past, the Navy used the island for target practice and bomb testing). 

There, he discovered the most magnificent, resounding echo that he had ever heard, inspiring him to pull out his banjo and perform a patriotic medley.

The result is this hauntingly beautiful tribute to our military service men and women.
