At some point, in most military careers, our men and women in uniform will spend the holidays apart from their families. It can be tough on both sides — for the family and for those serving.
Acclaimed recording artist Tim Rushlow, the former lead singer of the group Little Texas, is one of the performers who spent some of his holidays traveling to entertain those deployed and based overseas.
“I co-wrote ‘A Soldier’s Gift’ after one of the many times I visited with and performed for our troops who are serving away from home during the holiday season,” Rushlow shared with VAntage Point. “It occurred to me to say a special ‘thank-you’ to the men and women who are away from their families so that I can be with mine.”
Our Servicemembers are near and dear to my heart, and I appreciate them so much. This song is just a small token of gratitude because I wanted to pay tribute to them. Here’s wishing a Merry Christmas and happy holiday season to everyone.” – Tim Rushlow
