Silicon Valley is often perceived as a being less patriotic than many other parts of the country, so Google's gesture is particularly refreshing.

Patriotic rock band Madison Rising expressed its gratitude to tech giant Google today for selecting 17 year-old Sabrina Brady as the winner of their 2013 Doodle 4 Google contest. The competition’s theme for this year was “My Best Day Ever ... ,” and Brady's winning artwork - titled “Coming Home” - shows her racing into her father's arms upon his return from an 18-month deployment in Iraq. The image was featured front and center on Google's home page yesterday, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. The artwork was selected from over 100,000 submissions.
“Thank you for taking a moment to honor those who sacrifice so much for our country,” said lead singer Dave Bray, a veteran himself and former 8404 Corpsman. "Tens of thousands of men and women will be returning home to their families this year, and to see Google openly honoring them in front of hundreds of millions of people was very touching for us as a band."
Silicon Valley is often perceived as a being less patriotic than many other parts of the country, so Google's gesture is particularly refreshing. In observance of that action, the band is offering free downloads of their hit song Walking Through That Door (video available on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/OkAr9Bov5Gc), which musically describes the same themes expressed in Brady’s artwork.
