Thread Name: Help: POST WWII Songs-Vet's Day Program
Subject: POST WWII Songs-Vet's Day Program
I have several gigs this week end to do Veterans' Day programs. I have more WWI and WWII era songs than I can handle, but I don't know what songs to do to appeal to veterans of Korea and Viet Nam (or later years). (Yeah, I know the Ballad of The Green Berets and Okie From Muskogee.)

The songs don't absolutely have to be about war or patriotism--just songs that the troops listened to while stationed wherever they were stationed. (E.g., the Korean Conflict or Viet Nam War equivalent of "Lili Marlene," or "Keep The Home Fires Burning," or "Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs Of Dover," "Sentimental Journey," or "K-K-K-Katy.")

Any of you folks have any suggestions?
