We thank those who served during World War II for their service and their sacrifice this Memorial Day. We thank their families, friends and loved ones as well for the sacrifices made on our behalf and ask that God bless you all.
“American troops had regular access to radio in all but the most difficult combat situations, and not only did soldiers know specific songs, but specific recordings. This gave a nature to American troops music during WWII, not as much songs sung around a fire or while marching, but listened to between combat on Armed Forces Radio…”
With there being no shortage of footage during the big band/swing/jazz era of World War II, I thought to myself what better way to start this WWII tribute than with Mary Healy & The Four Debonairs singing “Kiss the Boys Goodbye” (1941 soundie version) followed up by “I Never Let a Day Pass By” as sung by Mary Martin and Don Ameche from the film itself.
