I Wanna Go Home

This is a video done by my friend Karridine. It made me cry when I first heard it. Hope you like it.

Here is a little about him and why he did the video.
Karridine enlisted at age 17 to follow his father's example and serve in Korea. After a year's study at the DLI in Monterey, CA, learning Korean language, Karridine served in the Army Security Agency, working atop a mountain on an island on the Korean DMZ. When the USS Pueblo was captured, Karridine was one of three people handpicked by NSA to fly back to Korea and guide the follow-up there. He got his Honorable Discharge after 4 years service in late1968.

Karridine wrote "Wanna Go Home" as his supportive contribution during the Battle of Baghdad, long after he was refused further service. Knowing how lonely it can get on the front lines, or just far from home, Karridine wove this story of the normal American GI's desire to go home, AFTER completing the mission, AFTER making a positive difference in the field.
The full song is for sale at I Wanna Go Home for $3.50. The author has given permission to those currently serving in the military to share it with nine of their best buddies, wives, husbands, parents, or children.
