Jared Dylan's song "Always Faithful"
A wonderful true story from the latest member of the Bopnique Musique world of incredible up and coming artists. This is for a great cause so please take the time to read the story and download the song.
On Aug. 24 Lance Corporal Simone, 19, was in Afghanistan serving the people and the country that he loves. He had been there for about a month when, while out on a foot patrol mission, he was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED), also known as a roadside bomb. Adrian
When he stepped on the IED, the blast pretty much shredded his left foot and his right leg below the knee. His fellow Marines rushed in (in spite of the fact that the area was not secure and they could have triggered another IED and been wounded or killed themselves) to administer emergency first aid.
Adrian was Medevaced out to a hospital in Afghanistan where he was stabilized. Then he was taken to another hospital in Afghanistan before being flown to a hospital in Germany. Finally he was taken home to the U.S., to be cared for at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, MD.
Adrian’s amputations were "revised" at the first Afghanistan hospital, to two through-the-knee amputations. The left leg has stayed there; the amputation is through the knee joint (so he does not have a functional knee). The right leg underwent further revisions in Bethesda and the final position is about 4 inches above the knee.
In an effort to support his fellow classmate, Jared Goldstein wrote "Always Faithful". The song was recorded with multi-platinum producer Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Duran Duran). Special Thanks to Mix Engineer Karyadi Sutedja and Master Engineer Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound. "Always Faithful" is now available on iTunes and all major digital distributors.
