The Stars & Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa...

I just love the piccola flute part in that march. I will never forget the crowd when our four piccola flutes walked to the front of the stage and played that part by heart... The consert was somewhere in Michigan. Can't remember where, but it should have been either in Grayling, Lansing or Detroit. (Or all of them)

Anchors Aweigh is also a good march.. But actually I prefer Swedish and German marches from late 19th century.

When it comes to songs with lyrics one of my favourites is Hemåt det bär (Homeward Bound or something like that), a song that every Swedish Soldier that has served abroad knows and sings at the end of the mission when the new people arrives.
Another favourite is the Russian song Proschanie Slavyanki (Farewell of Slavianka).

That's what a few of the Abrams drivers listen to during sorties in Iraq.

This may be alittle off topic but.. Ive been looking for weeks for this song that my dad heard some 35 years ago. and Ive finally come across this forum so heres the question:

It was the marine cores hymn but it had those cool vitnamese flutes in the back ground he said it sounded kind of errie. Anything you guys might know will really help my search.

Thanks again.

R Lee Ermey Marine Corps cadence, nothing better. Makes hair on my grape stand up.

If never heard, go to my my spcae in my profile, look at music box toward bottom and first song in the list is Gunny Ermey singin cadence. You can scroll there using bar on right side of music box.

As for the USMC hymn, every year at police week, they bagpipes folks play the hymn for me at least once. Sounds great, heavy chills..
