To Joe Offer & Allan S:

I probably had the title wrong when I suggested it might be "Be True to Your Uncle Sammy". I have heard the song (whatever the name) several times over the years, most recently 8 nights ago; I was trying to reconstruct it. I was somewhat thrown off by Allan S. referring to it as a WWI song, my own first thought was WWII. Gene (see newer thread 'bite the hand...') likely has it right. If Johnny Bond wrote the song, it would be WWII. I've searched several music webs but couldn't find it, and am too lazy to download Gene's reference. By the way, if I were to now guess the title, I would go with "If You Don't Love Your Uncle Sammy"
