Hallelujah Veteran’s Version

One of my veteran brothers who I went through the 3-month VA PTSD treatment program in Waco, Texas sent this out on Facebook. It made such an impact on me that I wanted to share it here on the blog. As I listened to the song, I was taken back to my time in Iraq, and as I watched the photos, I felt like I was back in Iraq. The song not only vividly reminded me of being in Iraq it also reminded me of the struggles I still face with my combat-related PTSD. This is a great song, sung by a veteran who herself struggles with her own combat-related trauma. Thank you, Sailor Jennifer, for sharing your beautiful song and sharing a part of your story.

From Sailor Jennifer’s website 

Hallelujah Veterans Version was actually written for a small group of Veterans that I talk to in support groups.  The original video was done just standing in my livingroom.  I’ve now recorded it and used pictures sent to me by the guys who followed this from the start.  It is FREE for anyone to download. I’ve tried to take suggestions into account when working with the musicians for the recording.  I hope you all love it.

Also I plan to post a downloadable version of the lyrics for everyone who has asked 🙂

Thank you for all of your support for this song.  The reach and messages have been amazing and overwhelming to receive.
