    Wasn't there a song letters from Vietnam? And a song about the Green Berets too. I have to do some checking, but some of the words are...fearless men who jump and die...men who mean just what they say...the brave men of the Green Beret.

    That song is "Ballad of the Green Berets" by SSG Barry Sadler

    Fighting soldiers from the sky
    Fearless men who jump and die
    Men who mean just what they say
    The brave men of the Green Beret

    Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America's best
    One hundred men will test today
    But only three win the Green Beret

    Trained to live off nature's land
    Trained in combat, hand-to-hand
    Men who fight by night and day
    Courage peak from the Green Berets

    Silver wings upon their chest
    These are men, America's best
    One hundred men will test today
    But only three win the Green Beret

    Back at home a young wife waits
    Her Green Beret has met his fate
    He has died for those oppressed
    Leaving her his last request

    Put silver wings on my son's chest
    Make him one of America's best
    He'll be a man they'll test one day
    Have him win the Green Beret.

    Thanks for the words. I used to know that song by heart. Probably have the 45 in my basement. I did pretty good remembering it! I can't think of the words to the other one.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, by request, once again Barry Sadler!

    Oh lord I'm tired and sad
    and I want you oh so bad
    I've been away so very long
    now I want to go home.

    So remember that I love you
    that, my dear is true
    just say a prayer for your man."
    This letter's post-marked 'Vietnam'

    "Last night we had a fire fight
    machine guns firing tracers through the night
    and as we fought,
    my thoughts, they turned to you
    and I knew, somehow, darling I'll come thrgouh

    I've fought in many places
    and I've seen war's thousand faces
    but after this, my wars are through
    and I'll-I'll come home to you

    Even thought I'm far away
    I'll think of you each day
    I'll come home when I can"

    I have a great story about a POW bracelet I wore for years when I was a teenager...the guy whose bracelet I wore was released and his picture ended up on the front page of the NY Daily News...which was my hometown paper at the time!!! Its a pic of him getting off the plane and meeting his son for the first time. I still have the newspaper too. In that same paper it lists the names of all the POWs from the Vietnam war and John McCain's name is listed. My guy was a POW for 7 years. He even wrote me a thank you note for wearing the bracelet. I couldn't believe out of all the POWs that he is the one who was on the front page of the paper. I was thrilled!!!

    Lol. I'm singing it right now. I think that's the flip side of the green beret song. Thanks.
