"No Man's Land" is a piece of music I wrote for a documentary called Citizen Soldier.
Basically a Unit of the Oklahoma National Guard was called-up for duty in Afghanistan, with no warning or preparation. This is their story- thru their eyes taken with their own Go-Pro video cameras.
They were placed deep into enemy territory - in "Harm's Way", fought heroically, and not all of them made it home.
The documentary is profound and affected me so deeply - I decided to be involved and wrote music for it.
This is a forgotten war that continues as I write this text.
Everyday our soldiers are killed or gravely wounded.
The surviving troops are coming home broken and shattered.
They need help.
Please watch the documentary.
CITIZEN SOLDIER is a dramatic feature film, told from the point of view of a group of Soldiers in the Oklahoma Army National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, known since World War II as the “Thunderbirds.” Set in one of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan at the height of the surge, it is a heart-pounding, heartfelt grunts’ eye-view of the war. Citizen Soldier will be released this August. Pre-order the film now on iTunes.

From RollingStone.com - BY RICHARD BIENSTOCK
Joe Walsh has called himself an "ordinary average guy," which is something of a stretch for a man who's written some of rock's greatest riffs, from the James Gang's "Funk #49" to the Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane" and his own "Rocky Mountain Way." Walsh's offstage exploits are similarly the stuff of legend: He's hung with Hendrix, freaked out Elton John, leveled hotel rooms with the likes of Keith Moon and John Belushi, and even ran for president (his platform: Free Gas for Everyone) – all while consuming enough vodka and cocaine to fell an elephant. "I never imagined how far down one could go," Walsh told Rolling Stone recently about his years of abuse. "But I went there. And it was a long way back."
Now 68 and sober for more than two decades, Walsh has righted his course. He released a well-received album, Analog Man, in 2012, and is currently out playing sheds on a co-headlining run with Bad Company, on the aptly named "One Hell of a Night" tour. He checked in with RS from a (presumably intact) hotel room in Arkansas to look back on his roughly half century in music. "It's a pretty good list of songs," he remarked about the ones discussed here. But, he added, "I don't think I'm done yet. There's still some more stuff I want to say."
