Boone Cutler hosted last week’s The New American Veteran. It featured a great interview with two veterans who have turned their experience into material for their musical careers. Both SGT Dunson and Soldier Hard create hard-hitting, emotionally driven rap music that capture the essence of being a combat soldier – a Warfighter. Listen to the interview here.
SGT Dunson’s webpage is here, and below are two of his music videos.
Below is a pic of Boone, Soldier Hard and SGT Dunson at the recent AUSA GEN Westmoreland Chapter dinner, and a note sent by the Chapter President:
Boone,On behalf of the AUSA General William C. Westmoreland Chapter, I want to thank you for an awe inspiring evening this past Friday night. Having you as our Armed Forces Day Dinner Guest Speaker truly was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Your enthusiasm transcended to all attendees and no doubt inspired them. Let us know if we can do anything to help you with your message in the future. I have sent my Dinner report to AUSA National today – I am certain they will be impressed by you. I very much enjoyed visiting with you, Sgt Dunson, Soldier Hard, and the others, and do hope we can all stay in touch. Our very best to you always. LTC (Ret) Sharlee “Charley” W.
