Side tracks

With this being the weekend we honor our veterans I couldn't help but think of some military-themed songs. Here's Johnny Horton..

Who could forget Mike Curb Congregation? And Kelly?

So much for the light stuff. Wars are hell for troops, their loved ones, and most everyone involved. Nobody likes war. But most we've been involved with have liberated people in some fashion even if unpopular. Politics aside, American troops have answered the bell and fought valiantly throughout our history with many paying the ultimate price. Their sacrifices have allowed average citizens to enjoy the freedoms others only dream about--simple things such as protesting in the street or writing a blog post without the fear of being shot.

They've done a kickass job and I salute them all.
