"...the audience practically 'exploded' when you sang
'I See America.' I am still getting goosebumps thinking of it! Vernon had tears running down his cheeks. It is a tribute to every soldier, and everyone who has been, or is in a war will appreciate your music even more. You really honor our soldiers and veterans with your songs and show them how much they are appreciated. You made us feel very special! Thank you, Sandy!!!"

"The song, 'I See America,' written by Sandy Riggers, is dedicated to the American men and women who have sacrificed so much in defense of America's freedoms. Her songs help to heal the deep wounds that are lifetime scars in the minds and bodies of soldiers who have seen and experienced the ravages of war. Knowing there are people in America like Sandy make the fight for freedom worth the sacrifice."

"Sandy Riggers' music and multi-media program provides
thanks, encouragement and well-deserved uplift for all of
our armed services veterans. Wow...does it ever! The
tears in their eyes and the smiles on their faces let you
know that they appreciate someone taking the time to give them a tribute. But in addition to that...Sandy's program thrills the hearts of those who never had the opportunity to serve. With enthusiasm and applause they are able to echo Sandy's accolades to our service men and women. Her program soon becomes a community tribute, not merely the statement of this extremely talented lady."

"Sandy has a complete, great love for family and her nation. She is an unapologetic patriot. Sandy has a total love for the United States Military and its people, past and present. Listen to the words of her song, visit her web site, she writes, produces and performs all of this, and she means and feels every single word and note - she is 'The Real Deal.' I hope the whole nation and the men and women overseas, and all of our ships and stations hear Sandy. Not just hear, but feel what her message is. She is an American Hero in my book."
