SANFORD, NC -- A North Carolina man is sending his brother to the Marines with love and a song. Aaron Cox of Sanford wrote a song for his brother as he heads to boot camp.

Aaron stopped by the WFMY News 2 studio to talk about the inspiration of the song. Aaron said,

"What really gave me the inspiration to write this song was a conversation that we had that morning about how It takes a special kind of bravery and special kind of person to sign up and risk their life to fight for our freedom."

The Facebook video of the song now has nearly 60,000 views. You can listen to the full song here.
