Happy Independence Day

My original American ancestor, William Pepper Sr., arrived in the British Colonies in 1726 as an indentured servant. Men named Pepper fought in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Great War, World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam. My father took care of the last three aforementioned in his thirty year career as an Air Force pilot.

Here's to my valliant fathers, their brave fellow countrymen, as well as their honored allies: all who have fought and risked their lives to keep this land - as well as the world - free, so that I can compose and play music, and share it with friends in dozens of countries around the world.
