Nashville veteran performs benefit for local renovation


Thurston’s passion for the song was fueled by politicians and their practices that annoy him. Instead of Washington’s well-heeled getting full pensions and health benefits after only two years in office, the soldiers, who risk life, limb and mind to defend all Americans, should, he said.

“We don’t send soldiers to war, politicians do at the end of the day,” Thurston said. “Bill Fitzgerald (Chateaugay Town Hall Theater volunteer) played ‘Ghosts in His Eyes’ for this guy (Arthur Fisher) building hospitals for soldiers with PTSD and TBI. He (Fisher founder of Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund) freaked. We’re working on a music video/documentary to raise awareness for this. I’m excited to try and help.”
