John Michael Montgomery’s country song “Letters From Home” isn’t exactly a song about a soldier who died in combat, but it is a touching portrayal of what goes on during war–and how much our soldiers miss being home:

I hold it up and show my buddies,/Like we ain’t scared and our boots ain’t muddy, but no one laughs,/’Cause there ain’t nothing funny when a soldier cries/An’ I just wipe me eyes/I fold it up an’ put it in my shirt/Pick up my gun an’ get back to work/An’ it keeps me driving me on/Waiting on letters from home.
