AFGHANISTAN – First Lt. Andrew Yacovone and First Lt. Justin Wright met on their first day of infantry basic training for officers in 2014.

What drew them together? They both loved music, according to WJW.

“I called out to the crowd and asked if anyone played guitar,” Andrew told ABC News. “Lo and behold, Justin was standing right next to me and he was like, ‘Heck yeah, I play guitar!'”

That meeting led to an all-night music session and the release of their first song “Hometown Hero,” on YouTube. And yes, they were still in Afghanistan.

The duo called "Interstate 10" has just released a new song and video, "I'm Gonna Miss You," they are dedicating to the families of fallen servicemen and women.
