Doobie Brothers' Far From Home For The USO
Written by original Doobie Pat Simmons, "Far From Home" recounts the bittersweet moment when a son or daughter leaves home for the first time. The video features footage from Simmons family archive and real life footage of service men and women returning to their families, much of which was submitted by fans.
The video was directed by Max Gutierrez of Ringleader Productions. Featured in the video are Airman Brant P. Healey, Master Sgt Joe Meyers, Sgt Mark Foster all from the Air Force; U.S. Army members Adriane Zachery Canales, Pvt First class Michael Rivera returning home from Iraq, and members of the Iowa National Guard 734th Agro-Business Development Team and the Iowa 133rd Infantry Regiment. The Doobie Brothers performance was filmed at the historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Check it out here
