Operation Song, Episode 5: Who is the Hero?

Apr 22, 2016

  Veteran Nashville songwriters Don Goodman and Steve Dean come down to Chattanooga every Wednesday to meet with a group of veterans in a counseling session called Operation Song. The songwriters listen to the veterans talk about their experiences in a war zone and then they distil their experiences into a song. This song, called “I Fought A Battle,” tells the story of Joe Engle, a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and his wife Kayla who faced equally devastating challenges of her own at home.
