Elizabeth “Liz” Sams is a thirteen year old from California, she wrote this song along with her mother Renee, for Veterans. Once you hear her sing, it is hard to believe she is only thirteen. You can feel the heart and soul she poured into this song, if it does not give you chills, nothing will. I have sent an email to the mother asking how to purchase this song, as soon as she gets back to me I will post it here.
This is what her dad had to say about Liz and the song:
“From the heart of my 13 year old daughter, Liz Sams, “Dear Veteran” is a moving tribute to the men and women who have served our nation in the Army, Navy, Airforce Marines, and Coast Guard. It is Elizabeth’s desire to help her generation understand that freedom is not free. DEAR VETERAN was written by Elizabeth and Renee Sams.”
Liz you are definitely setting a great example for your peers,and I would like to say thank you for this song, and the respect you have for the members of the armed forces and Veterans. You are what America is about, what this great country was founded on, and why we take the oath to protect her. Freedom is only ours because of those who have fought, bled, and died for it. A lot of Americans take freedom for granted, I am glad you are stepping forward to remind them that it is not free. Again, thank you Liz.
