For the Troops II

We learned today that John Ondrasik of Five For Fighting has released For the Troops II. “I’ve heard from service members who, before going on missions or upon returning, listen to songs for inspiration, motivation, reflection or simply to be distracted from a reality few of us could ever imagine,” said John Ondrasik, who writes and sings under the pseudonym band name Five for Fighting and spearheaded the CD’s development. “I hope that my song and the other hits from artists who generously contributed to this project stir those same emotions in our service members. We greatly appreciate the sacrifices the military has made for our country.”

This CD is free to download for U.S. active duty service members and veterans world wide with a valid military ID at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) Web site. In addition, TriWest Healthcare Alliance is producing and distributing 200,000 hard copies of the CD at various locations across the nation and overseas.
