Country music artist John Rich released a new version of his song “The Man” to honor military veterans, particularly those of the World War II era.
He emphasized the importance of understanding and appreciating the sacrifices made by the “Greatest Generation.”
“Many of our young people think freedom is inherited and not earned,” Rich said. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)
“I called a few personal friends who are veterans, and put a post out on X [Twitter], calling for World War II men,” he added. “It was an absolute honor to watch them all meet each other.”
“I often wonder if America’s youth would be willing to do what the Greatest Generation was willing to do should it come to that.”
“Sadly, I think the answer is ‘no.’ Many of our young people think freedom is inherited and not earned.”
Rich’s inspiration for the song came from his grandfather’s service in the war.
“It’s about my own flesh and blood, a man I grew up around and was greatly influenced by” he said.
“I had to make sure the lyrics were as strong as he was. I hope this song would have made him proud.”
The new version appears on his latest album, “The Country Truth.”
Rich also expressed concern about the changing attitudes towards the military, criticizing the left’s hostility and emphasizing the importance of appreciating the armed forces.
“Americans who don’t appreciate our military will be begging for their help should they ever find themselves in harm’s way,” he pressed.
