Can you believe it–another post already?

This is another episode of “Sing Along with the Landt Trio” of Karl, Jack and Dan. This program has a little extra interest to it: it’s Army Day! I knew about Armed Forces Day, but I’d never heard of Army Day. Google to the rescue!

“Army Day was established as a nationwide observance to draw public attention to national defense and to acquaint the public with Army activities.” Army Day had a rough beginning, but its official observance on April 6 began in 1929 to mark the day the U.S. entered World War I. 1949 was the last year that Army Day was recognized or celebrated. For more information, you can visit the Department of Defense page about it.

This program of Sing Along begins with popular songs of the day: “Don’t Sweetheart Me,” “I’ll Always be in Love with You,” and “I Couldn’t Sleep a Wink Last Night.” It concludes with two songs in honor of Army Day: “One Little WAC” and “What do they do in the Infantry?”
