>> SONICFLOOd Guitarist Leaves For Afghanistan
Along with the announcement of a brand new Christmas album, When Love First Cried, SONICFLOOd recently announced that their
guitarist Phil Baquie is shipping out to Afghanistan. Below is their announcement...
"Nashville, TN - October 21, 2009 - Last Wednesday, Phil received orders that he is being being deployed to Afghanistan for
about one year as part of "Operation Enduring Freedom."
'To say I am in shock would be an understatement & I was not anticipating this happening anytime soon as I'm in the Inactive
Ready Reserve. Having said that, I will serve my country with honor & am grateful for all America has done for me & do still feel a sense of duty to serve in the areas I have been trained...I write this with tears as I have loved being a part of this band & believe in everything it's trying to accomplish. I hope that the position of guitar/bgv will be held upon my hopeful return from Afghanistan. I love you guys so much & am believing that God is in control & has amazing things planned for SONICFLOOd & the journey he has me on.
To God be the Glory & God bless America,
While we are saddened at his departure, we are equally honored by Phil's willingness to protect his adopted country and protect our freedoms. Although he has lived in the US for over ten years, Phil is not an American although he would like to become a US citizen before leaving to serve. It is our prayer that this is accomplished. We have been trying to go to Afghanistan to perform for the troops as part of SONICFLOOd's ongoing military ministry and now we are even more motivated."
