Our Mission: “On The Inside”

***Did you know 22 veterans take their own lives every day?

It was the kind of phone call you never want to receive…


It was one of Tom’s childhood friends who served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. A tough Marine who ‘only bleeds on the inside’, yet was crying on the other end of the line. The demon of post-traumatic stress was taking it’s toll.
Sleepless nights, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, alcohol and prescription drug abuse were wreaking havoc. His personal life and marriage were in crisis.

As he poured out his heart, the two of them cried, talked, and prayed into the night.

Sadly, it was only the first conversation Tom had with one of these men.

His newest single, “On The Inside” not only brings the soldier’s struggles to light, but is also raising money to help prevent veteran suicide.

Our commitment is simple. We will always give this song to veterans and their families for free.

PLUS, a portion of the proceeds (songs, downloads, merchandise sales, etc.) will always go to worthy veterans groups and services.


All of us in the Tom Cottar Music Tribe are honored to give back to those who have sacrificed so much. We thank you for your service and your commitment. We are forever in your debt.
