    Our Veterans, Our Service Members Need All of Us America!

    Now more than ever before, the world is aware that our troops, service members, need our Veterans need our support!
    Trend this #WeSupportUSMilitaryServiceMembers #WeSupportOurTroops
    & #DeeVaSaysFollow our Veterans and Troops! They ALL have a story in their heart that deserves to be shared!

    Like this veteran, Sabo aka Troy Caicedo who was riding in that huge tank with my husband that night they were ambushed and my husband, SGT Jonathan B. Shields was killed.
    He uses his gift, music, writing, performing as I tool I recognize in my Psychology studies as being a healing mechanism.
    Look what he wrote about the track #Geno (my husband's stage name):
    "This track was recorded in dedication to my comrade, roommate, and friend who lost his life in Iraq 04."

    The fatal Accident involved SGT. Jonathan Shields who died in a 40ft drop tank rollover in Fallujah, Iraq while SABO was driving. After deployment, before all the fancy equipment, and before all the notoriety, SABO found himself lost and turned to music for healing by recording music. He never really released the song GENO.

    (Though I feel a record label should help him do so on any level possible!)
    Sending my love to Florida to SABO aka Troy Caicedo and his beautiful family.
