The Hero Fund

I want to promote something that is very important to me. There's an organization called the Hero Fund that was started to raise awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides scholarships and educational grants for the children of special operations personnel killed in training or real world combat. Today, an album made by this guy I know named Keni Thomas comes out. I met Keni years ago when he was still enlisted and playing the Loft for Open Mic nights, and was there the first time he ever played by himself in a solo show opening for my friends Evan & Jaron. His new album is called Flags Of Our Fathers - A Soldier's Story. Keni was one of the soldiers involved in the battle in Mogadishu, Somalia, that inspired the film Black Hawk Down. He worked as a technical consultant on the film, and parts of the characters are based on composites of the soldiers involved, including him. His band Cornbread was also featured in the Reese Witherspoon film "Sweet Home Alabama", as the street fair band playing the Lynyrd Skynyrd song of the same name. If you're a local, you can buy it locally at Walmart and I'm sure other places as well. It is also available online at cdbaby.com. A percentage of the proceeds from the album will go to the Hero Fund, and I hope everyone buys it and promotes it. I'd really appreciate it and I know Keni would also.
