"Still In the Fight", written and movingly performed by U.S. Marine Mike Corrado, is a way to draw attention to the struggles many America's service men and women face after being wounded in combat. Proceeds from the song benefit the USO's Wounded Warrior Family Centers initiative.
"'Still In The Fight' is dedicated to our Wounded Warriors, who have sacrificed so much for their country, and for their amazing strength, spirit and resilience . . . Though they may be far from the battlefield, their fight for recovery continues. For those 'Still In The Fight,' this is their fight song." Mike Corrado
The video features three amazing and heroic wounded warriors; Marine Master Sergeant William "Spanky" Gibson who lost his leg to a sniper round in Iraq then was the first Marine to re-deploy back to combat with a prosthetic leg, Marine Corporal Aaron Mankin who suffered severe burns and is one of a few survivors in an amphibious assault vehicle (AAV) he was riding in hit a massive improvised explosive device (IED) in Iraq and Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter who suffered injuries after absorbing about 99% of a grenade blast in Afghanistan.
