u Air Force Major Peter S. Reddan, director of operations and assigned to the 437th Operations Squadron at Joint Base Charleston, S.C., wrote a song, “Off to War,” that has been recorded and released by country music performer Brad Anderson. The song was inspired by the pilot’s experiences while deployed, as well as the experiences of the men and women with whom he serves. Joe Morris, a longtime friend and former member of the Army Special Forces, now road manager for country music recording artist Darryl Worley, mentored Reddan during the copyrighting process and helped him get his foot in the door to country music.
