"Lucky One" is a song released by singer/songwriter and active duty Marine, LtCol Mike Corrado. The song is about those who may not only bear the physical scars of combat and service but those struggling with invisible scars that can hide deep inside. With "Lucky One", Corrado hopes to help raise awareness for those dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He also want to let our nation's heroes know they are not alone, that there is help and there is hope.

Delivering the message through music, Corrado also intends on educating not only service members but the communities they come from. Corrado says, "Especially in the case of our Reserve Marines and service members who return to their civilian jobs and schools after deployments, it's important for the Marine and those around him or her to recognize the warning signs of PTSD and depression and encourage them to get help."

"Lucky One" has been featured on the Marine Corps Social Media sites. Check out the "Lucky One" video below. A second version of the video has been given as a public service announcement for the DoD/VA National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
