The Songs From The Soul Of Service songwriting contest invited the men and women of our active military to share with us their thoughts and feelings. Presented by the Dallas Songwriters Association (DSA) with assistance from the Office of the Secretary of Defenses’ America Supports You Program, the contest provided the civilian community with a way to say to those servicing in our military, we’re thinking about you; we care about you; we appreciate the work you have to do; and we value what you have to say. Speaking on the value of the project, the current Commander of the US Army Band, Colonel Thomas Rotondi said, “…What a great initiative!!! I'd like to be involved… What you folks are doing is fantastic! Thanks for your great support of our Service Members!!!

The project was so successful that the contest model has been used by the military to continue the contest.
