Hello Jacko. Thanks for the question. I did not serve in the USMC. My father, grandfather and4 of my Uncles were all in the army during Vietnam erra. Grand father in ww2 and Korean war, many cousins in Afgan and Iraq. If you are referring to the song 21 gun salute. It is based on my the events (early unplanned pregnancy) that took place with my parents that eventually damaged their relationship while my father was delpoyed. I have talked to other military people and the story is unfortunately all too common. Thanks for tuning in. - James Alger of One Drop
