    I kept hearing this song in the grocery store, and it caught my attention. Eventually I decided to look it up online - because it's a song in which both the music and the lyrics make me feel something. When I did, I found this video: the first video made during Charlie Company 193d Aviation (Heavy Helicopter) Iraq deployment. I already considered this a beautiful song, but that completed it for me. Hope you enjoy.

    Ok Tanya:

    I remember this song from about 3-4 years ago. The band's name's a bit out of place, but it's a great song.

    "The Reason"

    I'm not a perfect person
    There's many things I wish I didn't do
    But I continue learning
    I never meant to do those things to you
    And so I have to say before I go
    That I just want you to know

    I've found out a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    and the reason is you

    I'm sorry that I hurt you
    It's something I must live with everyday
    And all the pain I put you through
    I wish that I could take it all away
    And be the one who catches all your tears
    Thats why i need you to hear

    I've found out a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    and the reason is You

    and the reason is You [x3]

    I'm not a perfect person
    I never meant to do those things to you
    And so I have to say before I go
    That I just want you to know

    I've found out a reason for me
    To change who I used to be
    A reason to start over new
    and the reason is you

    I've found a reason to show
    A side of me you didn't know
    A reason for all that I do
    And the reason is you

    I am a fan of this one and the video that they took with it. Reminds me a lot of growing up as an Air Force brat. Watched all friends and families saying goodbye.

    Wow, I wish he would sit and sing that in my livin' room :smile2:. Would be really neat to sit in with some famous people sometime :big_smile:. Eric Clapton, to me, is someone who is equally as good a singer as he is a guitarist; that's sayin' a lot. Thanks for the video link Gary, it's a great one.

    speaking of 3 doors down.

    the band is from escatawpa miss. right over the line from mobile county. the lead guitarist matt roberts lives in the same town as me. they are good guys. i have hunted with matt and his brother (who plays for a band called "top of the orange") twice now. they come up to our hunting camp to get away for a fewe days. really super nice guys. stand up kinda fella's. they have done a lotta charity work down here. i remember hearing one of thier songs on an old boombox waiting to cross the border b4 the war kicked off. it was stuck in my head the whole time i was there. now when i hear it i usually turn the station, just gets me all rattled. ne way. they are really good guys.

    :0a21: Gary, or whoever knows the answer.

    One rule, you have to actually KNOW this info, and not look it up. (You'll be on your honor, 'cause I have no way of telling if you do or not :smile2:.) There are more than three, but I could name three with no help.

    Eric Clapton has been a member of several different bands, name three of them.

    Tanya I know of Yardbirds, Derick and the Dominos and Cream. Other than his solo career I cant think of any other bands that he was a member of.

    Tanya, thanks for sharing the video.

    But mostly, I want to thank all the guys and women in service this evening, and wish them "Happy valentines day". Just got home from dinner w/ my sweetie, and I know you all would rather be home with yours. Hopefully, absence makes you feel it more, and you will be together soon.

    Thank you for making it possible for me and my children.
    God bless.
