The CD "a million miles away from home" was released on Aug. 8, 2006, the one-year anniversary of the state of Ohio's "Day of Mourning" following the deaths the previous week of 14 Marines from Ohio. It's also the anniversary of the day I wrote the song, "A Million Miles Away from Home." I released the single on the Web on February 8, 2006, the six-month anniversary of Ohio's "Day of Mourning." That version can be freely downloaded (see options below), copied and passed along to anyone you feel may find comfort in it, provided you do not charge for it.
