Mark Wills Lends Voice To Military Vets

Mark Wills and military assistance charity USA Cares, are partnering to lead a national awareness campaign about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

He will be the official spokesperson and voice for the “Crazy Being Home” outreach to encourage and support veterans. His recording of “Crazy Being Home” (written by Chris Lindsey, Robin Lindsey, Brett Warren and Brad Warren) will be the campaign’s anthem, and will be on Wills’ album Looking for America, due in June 2011.

Kicking off the “Crazy Being Home” campaign, Wills will perform at the 6th Annual National MilBlog Conference in Washington, D.C. on Friday, April 29. Also slated to make a guest appearance is former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

PTSD is an important cause to Wills, whose father was affected by serving in Vietnam. He has been working with USA Cares since 2009, and has made more than seven trips to Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the troops.
