Never underestimate the power of music to change the world.-
A quote from a wise man
Who They Are:
Project Troops was founded by Tamra Lynn Smith, in 2008. Tamra is the Proud Mother of an Army son. Wanting to make a difference for her son and others through music, she started writing music to support her son while he was in Iraq.
Soon, other fellow artists such as LanternLane, Randall Johns, Carmella Inchinchiera, Rich Owen, Iam Nelson, Dave Sanford, and other good friends joined together to help write and create very special and unique songs for our military.
The music tells their stories in a way people can understand.
Unless you have walked in the boots of a soldier or have been a loved one left behind to worry every single day they are away, and knowing they are put in harm’s way…
It is hard to understand the realities and hardships of war and the challenges that our Military Members, Families, and our veterans face.
The challenge doesn’t stop when they come home either, because “every soldier who has seen war is changed for life.”
Project Troops is dedicated to making a difference through their music. Their goals are to raise awareness of hard hitting issues like PTSD, what the families go through and feel while worrying about their loved ones or how our Veterans feel after they come back home. They are dedicated to standing up for our veterans and for Veterans and Soldiers Rights.
Project Troops goal is to raise money for charities that support our Military, Veterans and families through the sales of their songs and also to share their music with as many military people as they can.
“Project Troops keeps growing as do the artists who join us to make a difference. It is only in numbers that we can make a difference and have a voice when needed. We hope you will join us in our support and take time to listen to our music.”
I continue to be amazed by the many wonderful organizations helping our returning combat vets and their families. It is most important to make them aware of these resources. The beauty and power of blogs to raise awareness and impart information!
