Heard this on the radio today. I had heard it before but hadn't really listened to it. I'm not much of a country music fan, (I think this would be classified as country) but I do think that this is a rather touching song and one that's lyrics apply perfectly to Afghanistan even though they were written about Korea and are more commonly associated with Vietnam. Never thought much of anything else the guy did (he didn't write it but it's the best known version) but don't be put off, give it a listen. Anyway, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZYcqlEZxGQ The Killers have covered it more recently but I haven't found that version yet.
