St. Louis (KSDK) -- A former member of the Air National Guard band Sidewinder has dedicated his new song to challenging other cities to hold Welcome Home Heroes celebrations.

St. Louis made history on January 28 when it held the first Welcome Home Heroes parade dedicated to veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.  Organizers said eight other cities have talked about holding similar events.

Staff Sgt. Brian Owens recorded "Keep Moving On" to promote the City to City challenge.  He recently released the music video, which includes a portion of the parade and the reading of the names of the people who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
