Martin and Holiday – Troubadours for Veterans

Since meeting Michael J. Martin, by way of Gary Lillie, in 2004, Martin was a frequent guest on Veterans Radio. He was one of those “old fashioned tried and true ol’ troubadours” with ballad-folk songs that came out of the Vietnam War experience.

Michael J. Martin lived the music he wrote and sang. His music had some miles on it. He and his partner, Tim “Doc” Holiday, both Vietnam Veterans, started writing and recording their music back in late 70s and early 80s. They led marches from Texas to Washington to make people and the government aware of what was happening to a whole generation of Vietnam Veterans.

They are both gone now, but their music is still inspiring veterans of all ages. It’s as powerful as it is emotional. It’s letting the veterans and their families know that “They Are Not Alone”.
