Military Tribute Song for veterans, “He Still Pays the Price” Chris Petersen

Military Tribute Song for veterans, “He Still Pays the Price” Chris Petersen

Military Tribute Song for Veterans. This Song was written in Honor of the Veterans who have sacrificed so much to serve us. Freedom is not Free. After a video interview with a veteran in the Spring of 2015 I was moved by the sacrifices and struggles the veteran faced upon returning home to regular life. The Soldier had been wounded in several different conflicts. He returned to civilian life and was faced with countless trials. PTSD, Depression, Alcohol, Prescription Drugs, and memories that wouldnt go away all took their toll. He battled inner demons, for years but eventually found a way out. It took him years to rise above the difficulties he faced. Never before had I really seen the depth of the wounds of the men and women who serve our country in the military. Battle scars may heal physically but often times the wounded soul is a much harder thing to overcome. I was moved and deeply grateful for his sacrifice. I listened as he spoke of watching his best friend die in front of him. “It rocked my world” I went home and wrote this song titled, “He Still Pays the Price.” We ought to be grateful for our freedom because it comes at high price. I will be forever in debt to our veterans. Don’t let them stand alone! Though we will never fully understand what they have done for us we can show gratitude and thank them in whatever way we know how. This is my way of saying thank you.

A Veterans Day Tribute to the US Military: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard

A Veterans Day Tribute to the US Military: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard

This is a video I did to honor and thank all United States military personnel, past and present, for the selfless sacrifices they make to keep our nation free. It was used for our church’s annual Veterans Day Celebration on November 14, 2010.

I’m paying special honor to my grandfather, RICHARD A. PESTKE, who was a photographer in the US Navy during WWII. His picture is at the 2:20 mark of the video.

PLEASE, NO PROFANITY IN COMMENTS! I want this video to be something families and children can view without offense. If you use profanity your comments will be removed. If it continues I may shut off the ability to leave comments. I don’t want to do that, so PLEASE don’t use profanity. It’s not necessary. Thank you!

One last thing. I’m sorry for the random “flickering” on the video. You can thank Microsoft for making such a poor software program called “Windows Movie Maker.” I won’t be using it again for any more major projects. Now I know why most graphics experts like using Macs.

All images were taken from Google images and the sound effects from YouTube or sounddogs.com. A special “thank you” to Mr. Dustin Evans for the use of his song “If I Die Before You Wake.”
