I made this video as a tribute to those who served & fought on the battlefields of Vietnam. I prefer the Jimmy Webb version over that of Glenn Campbell. Jimmy Webb, in 1969, wrote "Galveston", a song about an American soldier who pined for his hometown and his girlfriend. I consider it neither a pro-war nor anti-war song but rather one that tries to reflect some of the thoughts & images of a soldier who longs to be back at home where his memories provide him a brief sanctuary from all the death and destruction he sees all about him. I would rather consider this a tribute showing how those who served & fought in Vietnam felt. I wanted it to show their bravery, fear, anguish, compassion and sadness for the death and destruction about them and the longingness to be back home in moments of loneliness or battlefield quiet while in Vietnam. I hope I succeeded in some small way.
