Genie Lyr Req: Songs for post WWII Veterans (34) RE: Lyr Req: Songs for post WWII Veterans 08 Nov 14

Thanks for all the suggestions and reminders.

There are a lot of soldiers', sailors', airmen's, marines' wartime songs that I could never do in a mixed company gig (both sexes, mixed attitudes about war, both draftees and "lifers," etc.) with almost certainly quite a few people who would not like to hear songs that are too risque or have a lot of 'four-letter' words.   But, just as WWI and WWII had popular songs associated with them that were not ABOUT war, so did Korea and Nam (and Iraq, Afghanistan), so those suggestions really help.

I'm not sure Phil's "Draft Dodger Rag" would be unanimously appreciated by all of the draftees and enlistees from the Viet Nam war, though.
