The J.O.B. founder, Jim O’Ferrell, wrote “Glory Never Comes” with a purpose extremely close to his own soul. Many of the soldiers who come home after serving active duty do not have the proper avenues in place to adjust back to normal everyday life. Some even find themselves living on the streets they fought to protect. O’Ferrell explains, “These are men and women who answered the call of duty and served our country honorably. They returned home and ultimately found themselves with no place to go. They live in the shadows along the periphery of our paths. This song is sung from the perspective of one of those veterans. It’s a first-person rock ballad aiming to connect with those veterans who need to hear a voice like their own, and a song with their story.”
