Program Notes

Metaphors are interesting in as much as they reflect the real. This work depicts a kind of victory, a triumph filled with the heroic and the celebratory. It is sad to me that many history courses taught in our public schools fail to bring to life the real-life heroes of this noble experiment called America. The defenders of this country have always held a special place in my heart. They have literally spent themselves in the cause of freedom... a wondrous gift many of us take for granted. And so, this closing chapter stands as a reminder. There are those, like the members of 31st Regiment who have fought the historic battles... in real life. they have championed the cause of liberty and saved the lives of others by sacrificing their own.

Commissioned by Mr. Ray Primm and humbly dedicated to the men and women, living and deceased who served as Polar Bears with the 31st Regiment in Siberia, Bataan, Corregidor, Chosin, Hwachon and Viet Nam.
