LCPL Edward "Augie" Schroeder

The first time we heard Bob Stewart's
"A Million Miles Away From Home," we wept. Paul called Bob to give thanks for this wonderful tribute to 20 Marines killed in Iraq and got his answering machine. He could barely get his name and number out.

Our son Augie was among those Marines. He seems like a million miles away now. The home that we had a strong circle of four seems like a million miles away. With this tribute and Bob's song, both are closer.

Thanks Bob, for the song and the inspiration to help others see the true cost of war.
