Thread Name: Songs about Vietnam War
Subject: RE: Songs about Vietnam War
My name is Kathy and since my 2 nephews enlisted.Anthony is 20 and in the Navy and his younger bro Vito.19 is in the Army. I have been haunted by a song that I listened to on the radio one Memorial Day weekend back in the mid 90s.It just so happened that I had been taping music that day and caught an exclusive debut of Vietnam Veteran.Timothy P. Irwins song After The War. The song. the true story behind it....well. the whole experience truly changed my life forever.I treasured that song for many. many years. A few years back though the tape came up missing andI was crushed.Eventually I got over it until I found out last fall that Vito was going to be deployed to Iraq and Anthony to Kuwait. Ive Googled searched the song and the writer but I cant find ANYTHING at all. If anyone out there has any suggestions on where I might be able to locate this songwriter and/or song. I would greatly appreciate your help. Please email me @ Maries13thchild@yahoo.com. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God Bless.
