A pair of Army Rangers deployed in Afghanistan released a Memorial Day tribute song on YouTube Saturday.

According to their website, Interstate 10 is a Contemporary Country Pop duo headed by Army Rangers Justin Wright and Andrew Yacovone.

In a message posted with the video on YouTube, the band explained their mission:

“Memorial Day is about remembering the ones we lost and supporting their loved ones. It’s about celebrating the lives they lived. Thanking them for allowing us the opportunity to come home safe, and most of all, thanking them for a second chance to hug our loved ones.”

The pair debuted their first song, “Hometown Hero” while deployed in 2014.
