Recorded at Max’s house in Taos. This song is on a compilation album of songs written by a recently deceased war veteran, Jacob George. All of the songs on the album are covered by fellow veterans. The compilation is called Soldier’s Heart, Warrior’s Soul : Remembering Jacob David George. You can learn more about the project here.
“I’m a three tour veteran of the Afghan war struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but I don’t consider myself disorderly; I feel this is a natural consequence of war. PTSD has had many names over the years: Battle Fatigue, Shell Shock, War Neurosis, and Soldier’s Heart, to name a few. I feel Soldier’s Heart, the American Civil War term, is most appropriate for what I struggle with. My heart is wounded as a result of Moral Injuries and this album is an attempt to explore my wounds.” – Jacob George
