About the song
Having recently came across Sgt. James Daniel Faulkner's Tribute memorial page, I was compelled to read & "meet" this soldier..."America's son" ... Clarksville, Indiana's ... "Hometown Hero".

I immediately noticed, he tragically died, the same day...that, my son SPC David Dale, was sworn into the army, Sept. 8, 2004.

Heartbroken for his family, I wrote & expressed my condolences...and, appreciation to Daniel, for his service and committment to serve our great nation.

Then, a couple of weeks later, I was overcome with emotions...all the thoughts & feelings I'd felt when reading letters from his family & friends...came pouring out into song, for this, "America's son",

"Her Hometown Hero" - (Daniel's Song)
Lyrics
" Her Hometown Heroes" - ( Daniel's Song )

They were ... young,
But, they ... stood tall.
And, They were ... the BEST ... of us, ALL !

America's sons & daughters,
Husbands, wives ... sisters, brothers
Mothers, Fathers ... from all walks ... of life.

Marching on ... to a Higher call
Our "Hometown Heroes" ... Rise ... Fall,
Paving the way ... to Liberty
Defending ... Freedom's Ring!

( Chorus )

They were ... the BEST
That, she had ... to give!
Our "Hometown Heroes"
Who had barely ...
begun ... to live.

When, they heard ... a Higher call
"Her Hometown Heroes" ...
Rose up, one & ALL !

They were ... the BEST !
She had ... to give,
"Her Hometown Heroes"
And, when ... they heard ...
a Higher call
"Her Hometown Heroes" ...
Rose again,
And, gave their ... ALL !

For America's son ...

Sgt. James Daniel Faulkner ( 23 )
