friday's random music video vol. X

this week's selection is inspired by a few things:

1. in a few days, it will be the one year anniversary of my grandmother's passing. she served in the military as a dietitian in world war II and landed on the beaches of normandy two weeks after the invasion and moved with the allied forces all the way to berlin. just one of several incredible experiences that she had during her lifetime. amazing woman and very much missed. macarthur blvd. section 66, 166. love to you and grandpa.

2. this past week, i met ed "doc" pepping, a member of easy company, the regiment forever enshrined by tom hanks in the 10-part mini-series band of brother. i spoke with him for the better part of an hour about his experiences and shared some my grandparents' own combat experiences during the war. "doc" pepping was wonderful to speak with and i couldnt help but be uber corny and gratuitously thank him for serving our country and continuing to fight for veterans. the man is probably pushing 90, needs a wheelchair, but travels from california to to dc to help thousands of veterans as much as he can. fantastic individual and im honored to have met him.

3. this song is incredible. the band is incredible. the album, from which this song comes, was the soundtrack to my summer in nyc. some of my best memories.


my chemical romance - "ghost of you"
