    Smile Great War Music!!

    ......Just sitting here listening to my Mom's favorite WWII music, Glen Miller and his Orchestra. Those Marines who served in the Pacific, knew most of the "tunes" by heart. When my Dad was on leave from the R.A.F., he and Mom would go into London and dance to the sounds of the "Big Bands". Luckily for me, they introduced me to all that great music. The Dorsey Brothers, Glen Miller, Harry James, and many more.
    VERY positive, and fond memories......

    He's retired. He's the one who tells me he is the former Marine all the time. I was just going by what he said. I apologize.

    Can't beat Glenn Miller for WWII music, Doc - I 'm also fond of the "Victory At Sea" music.
