The Song’s Story
“Letters From Home” was written by Tony Lane and David Lee. Lee got the idea of writing this song after seeing a soldier and his girlfriend saying goodbye at the airport. We all know that this profession requires a brave heart and soul. Soldiers do not only think of himself but they also think of his family and country.
Many of our soldiers have left their homes to push through with their dreams and one of those is to save his country. In line with this song, “Letters From Home” shows the love and support of the family. The family showed their love and support by writing a letter. Honestly, seeing your family’s support will be a great motivation for you to work hard. The letter given motivates anyone to push through with his profession no matter how hard it is.
However, in this song, the soldier’s father was unimpressed with the achievements of his son but he eventually admits that from the very start he was already proud of him. The soldier was then brought to tears and continued to inspire his fellow soldiers.
