Mike Brook wanted nothing more than to serve his country. Unfortunately, when he was a young man, he was unable to enlist due to hearing loss and physical injuries he suffered during his time playing football. Later, Mike wrote a song about a soldier heading off to fight in Vietnam, a song he used to sing to his children.

On Christmas Eve of last year, Mike was surprised when his family sat down and listened to his granddaughter Karli Willett's rendition of the song he wrote. It was hard for Mike to hold back the tears when he finally heard the finished song performed so beautifully for the first time.
