For Remembrance Day

I wanted to put up this video a good deal sooner, some months back when I first ran across it, but it seemed a song this splendid in the combination of lyric, tune, and arrangement should be saved for a special occasion.

For Veteran's Day

It seemed a good day to put up some music, but inspiration for a tune manifestly proper to the day has rather eluded me. So my thank you to any member of the Armed Forces who might happen to be stopping by this page will have to stand very plain, though it is no less heartily meant.

This video is not plain and while it may not be Veteran's Day music in the strictest sense, it is some splendid bluegrass from the US Navy's Country Current.
