Hairatan, Afghanistan – Soldiers have many different ways to boost morale while their away from home; sports, card games and movies are some, but for Pfc. Joseph Parker a native of Phoenix, AR, strum’n musical melodies on his guitar is what remedies his unit’s down days in Afghanistan.

“Pvt. Parker he brings a cheer to the office, almost every morning he comes in before he goes out to his guard tower, he strums a little bit of music,” happily mentioned Capt. Steven E. Mosher a native of Grand Rapids, MI, and company commander of the 58th Signal Company. “It makes the day go by every day, gives you something to look forward to when he comes in and starts strum’n on something.”

The wounded Soldier, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Daniel Hayes of Grand Rapids, MI, not only survived, he walked to the medical evacuation helicopter that took him from the battlefield in the Marwara District to the 102nd Forward Surgical Team at Forward Operating Base Wright. After surgery at FOB Wright, Hayes walked to the second MEDEVAC chopper that transported him to Bagram Airfield for follow-up treatment.
