2/25/2012 - Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, D.C. --  Max Impact, the premier rock band of the United States Air Force, is thrilled to release a new video featuring their original song "Send Me". Produced with the assistance from Air Force Television, the video integrates footage of the amazing Airmen from Air Force Special Operations Command.

A collaboration between Senior Master Sgt. Matt Ascione and Master Sgt. Ryan Carson, "Send Me" began as a request from a leader in the Special Tactics community who saw one of the band's high-energy performances. He wanted to highlight his men's courage and selfless service, as well as inspire them to new heights.

Drawing inspiration from the "Special Tactics" motto "First there ... that others may live", this exciting original composition tells the story of highly-trained Air Force professionals and highlights their commitment and sacrifices.

Along with the other members of Max Impact, the featured vocalist on the song, Carson has deployed overseas on a number of occasions and has seen firsthand the dedication of our nation's front line warrior Airmen. He explains, "This song was written to honor, encourage and inspire our Special Tactics Airmen. Whether a combat controller, pararescueman, tactical air control party or a special operations weather team member-- these Airmen exemplify the warrior ethos and our core values of integrity, service before self and excellence in all we do."

This video is now available via The U.S. Air Force Band homepage. And trust us, you don't want to miss this one!
