US Soldiers Finish Broken National Anthem

"It was the most inspiring moment I have had in Iraq":
"You could have heard a pin drop. Every soldier stood at attention. Suddenly there was a lone voice, then a dozen, and quickly the room was filled with the voices of a thousand soldiers, singing:
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

O say does that Star-Spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
"They sang it and they sang with gusto. It's one of those things that makes your heart feel good," Higgins told 7NEWS.

The chaplain, who has been in the reserves for 13 years, said he spent six months training with Colorado soldiers before going to Iraq.

He told 7NEWS, "I'm coming to Colorado because those are some great people. If [the soldiers] are indicative of the people of Colorado, those are the kind of people I want to spend the rest of my life with."
