HOUSTON, TX – As American’s, we love our freedom; a big part of maintaining that freedom is the duty of our troops. On April 27, 2011, nine members of the NATO Air Training Command in Afghanistan were killed in action. Their mission, training the members of the Afghan Air Force to provide security for Afghanistan in the future.
“Shortly after I returned home, 9 of my coworkers were killed by a turncoat Afghan pilot,’ U.S. Air Force Major Henry Cecil. ‘I wanted to do more than just donate money to the family’s and so I teamed up with Steve Blaze from Lillian Axe and we had a guitar built.”
Steve Blaze says, “We wanted to do something we could, maybe for the family members and he came up with the idea of building a guitar that would be dedicated to the Air Force members who lost their lives and we would give the money that we raised, through a raffle to all the family members.”
During their tour, Steve will be shredding it up on the guitar during the song Take the Bullet, a song Steve Blaze wrote for the troops; and after Lillian Axe tours with the guitar they will raffle off the custom axe with all the proceeds going to the Air Advisor Memorial Fund to benefit the families of the fallen.
