It is a collection of songs written by Keni Thomas that tell stories inspired by life in the military and by those who serve our nation.
"Hero is an emotionally packed song by Keni Thomas that wonderfully salutes those brave ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for our beloved country. And this video produced by SGT Doug Ruark brings Thomas' words vividly alive for all to experience . . . as it is dedicated to a very good friend of SGT Ruark." David Bancroft, USA Patriotism! founder (February 2009)
More than a gifted musician, Thomas possesses an exceptional personal story that is uniquely inspiring. He is a decorated combat veteran of the elite 75th Ranger Rgt special operations unit, receiving the bronze star for valor.
And as a country singer, his dedicated work on behalf of our veterans has been recognized by Congress and the National Defense Foundation. Thomas is also the recipient of the American Patriot Award and The Carlton Sherwood Media Award . . . and is recognized in Stars There for the Troops.
Keni Thomas' own words...
"We are Americans. We're still one nation under God and believe it or not, we all feel the same about the country we live in. We are grateful for it's opportunities. We value our freedom. We are proud of our military. We love our kids and we want what is best for them.”
