Anthem Raises Awareness About Dramatic Rise in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

"Stay Strong" is a moving, forceful reminder to our servicemen and women that the nation respects and reveres them and will not forget them when they return home. The song is designed to raise awareness about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and to raise money to build a state-of-the-art PTSD treatment facility in Hawaii for returning combat vets who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Stay Strong" is co-written by Keith Crosby, a decorated combat veteran who served in Vietnam. The featured vocalist is Charles Cook, a vet who served on active duty in Afghanistan and Iraq and toured at military bases as a member of "Tops in Blue," a traveling USAF entertainment group comprised of soldiers. {{more}
