As we wrap up a most patriotic week in America, I’d like to share with you the most patriotic band I know! The name is “Missing Stateside,” and it includes rough and tough and amazingly talented vets who’ve served our nation in war zones and have it in their blood to stand ready for whatever selfless duty calls. They’re some of the most patriotic and supportive guys you’ll ever meet. And their music is GREAT! In the interest of full disclosure, I’m very proud of my own connection here – my cousin Jason ("JD”) is the big guy in the band; he's on guitar and vocals. Jason is from a long line of honorable military men and women. Both his parents served, as did aunts and uncles, and now nephews and others in the family's younger generation. He and his wonderful wife, Trish, both recently retired from years in the service that took them around the world, away from friends and family, for years. They so missed Stateside... and we're so glad they're back. My Airman cousin has been an enormously positive influence on my son, cousins, and my two Washington state nephews who just enlisted (Hooah!). It’s always a pleasure to do anything to support great Americans like the guys in “Missing Stateside.” Please check out their website linked below. I’ll also post some videos. Shout 'em out, and I'll look for new friends sporting the band's tee as we travel this great land.
