Helping soldiers through song

Tristate reacts to war

John Carmack of California, Ky., and Mark Pfefferman of Butler, Ky., wrote a tune based on a friend's poem about Desert Storm. The song, "Hearts Full of Pride," stems from first-hand knowledge. Pfefferman, 41, a 10-year Army veteran, served in the Persian Gulf during that conflict.

The song was recorded with fellow musicians Tom Shoemake of Cincinnati and Mike Due of Reading. It can be found on the album Mike Due & the Working Class Dogs - For the Benefit of Military Families.

The cost for the CD is $15, with $10 going to organizations that assist the families of soldiers. To listen to "Hearts Full of Pride," go to Send check or money order to Mike Due, P.O. Box 777, Cincinnati 45202. Make checks payable to Military Family Relief CD.
