The Doobie Brothers - 'Far From Home' [Behind the Scenes] Video

From the USO Facebook Event posting:

The USO will debut the world premiere of The Doobie Brother’s newest single “Far From Home” on Celebrating 40 years as an iconic presence within the rock music industry, The Doobie Brothers are comprised of members Pat Simmons, Tom Johnston and John McFee.

Written by Simmons, “Far From Home” recounts the bittersweet moment when a son or daughter leaves home for the first time. Inspired by his daughter’s departure for college, the song also hits home with military families, who are no strangers to lengthy separations.

The video features real life footage of service men and women returning to their families, among them Airman Brant P. Healey, Master Sgt Joe Meyers, Sgt Mark Foster all from the Air Force; U.S. Army members Adriane Zachery Canales, Pvt First class Michael Rivera returning home from Iraq, and members of the Iowa National Guard 734th Agro-Business Development Team and Iowa 133rd Infantry Regiment. The video also features footage from Simmons personal home videos.

A long-time supporter of America’s armed forces, The Doobie Brothers have entertained and visited troops stationed across East Asia and the Pacific during the mid-1980s. Additionally, the Grammy-award winning rock band have donated and raised more than 2.5 million dollars in support of service heroes.
