Happy 4th of July!!!
Probably the most patriotic song during the decade of the 60's was "The Ballad of the Green Berets". This song was #1 on the charts for five weeks, during the year of 1966. It was written and sung by Staff Sergeant Barry Sandler, who served in Vietnam with the U.S. Army Special Forces. SSgt. Sadler died of heart failure at age 49, in 1989.
In 1968, John Wayne starred in a movie of the same name, "The Green Berets", and the popular ballad from 1966 was featured on the soundtrack.
