A very moving tribute to Vietnam Veterans by David Gibson

In celebration of National Vietnam War Veterans day, Mar. 29, retired US Army Captain Carl Conge and his friends Roger Kirby, and Dave Gibson have released a new video to honor those who served in Vietnam.

Gibson – who is featured in the video, and sings lead on the song that accompanies it – is an Academy of Country Music Award Winner who has penned hits for some of the biggest names in country music.

“These Days (He’s Just Tryin’ to Get By)” tells the story of a young man who was drafted, sent to Vietnam with the company that participated in the My Lai Massacre, and returned home a much different person than the one who left to fight in Southeast Asia. It was inspired, in part, by Conge’s older Brother – a Vietnam veteran who passed away in 2010 due to health issues related to the exposure to Agent Orange.

Thank You Sir! From the bottom of my heart!
