Bringing Buddy Home

CBC creates touching video around John McDermott’s song “Bringing Buddy Home”:

Canadian Irish Tenor, John McDermott wrote the music and lyrics to “Bringing Buddy Home” dedicated to Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan and their families.

It is an extremely emotional look at the final journey of the soldiers that have perished in war, as their remains are returned to Canada, from the Ramp Ceremony in Kandahar, the Highway of Heros and to the final resting place for these Canadian Heros.

CBC News and CBC Arts and Entertainment have worked together to produce this video that illustrates how Canada as a country grieves these young men and women.

This is in an effort to raise awareness and to help support the families of fallen soldiers through on our National Day of Remembrance, November 11.
