Veterans Day

Share this post:

"Over there," By George M. Cohan. London: Herman Darewski Music Publishing Co., 1917.

On this Veterans Day, take time to remember those who served our country with songs from Patriotic Melodies in the Performing Arts Encyclopedia, including “The Army Goes Rolling Along,” “The Marines’ Hymn” (Happy 235th birthday to the United States Marine Corps!), and ”The U.S. Air Force Song” (which you may know as “Off we go into the wild blue yonder”). And be sure to visit the Veterans History Project, now celebrating its tenth year with a new feature that highlights the unforgettable stories of twenty veterans, just a sampling of the thousands of stories of wartime experience.
