This song was originally written by Mel Tillis about a Korean war vet but was made famous by Kenny Rogers & The First Edition in 69, it unfortunately rang true for many of the guys who came back from Vietnam.

For the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy from the British and then the American perspectives. ;)
We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender... Winston Churchill


And I'd be remiss if I didn't include the French...

I like The Andrews Sisters but I have never actually listened to Vera Lynn. Only knew her name, she's great. Thanks for posting oldbill.

Yes Sir! She was truly a great vocalist who really didn't get the respect that she should have here in the states but was HUGE in Britain and had a decades long career. Here's an example of what she sounded like some 35 years after WWII. ;)

Is it June already? Where does the time go?

I always share this song in June. I make sure to watch it once a year, like re-reading Leaves of Grass.

There is something mysteriously captivating about this video:

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

With 11 Grandkids on our list it's almost time for us to start buying Christmas presents for them. With our 2 kids & 2 in law kids that makes for a long list!
