Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

Since today is Veteran's Day, I was thinking of a song or poem I could post in honor of our soldiers who were in the forefront serving our country with their lives to protect us, and I thought..ah yes, I will post the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy sung by one of the most loved, and remembered sister singing groups; The Andrew Sisters!

These three darling dames; Patty, Maxene, and Laverne are remembered for their music, rich in sweetness and optimism, the Andrews Sisters were loved by the many troops they tirelessly entertained during World War II whose  fame peaked during World War II. Nicknamed “America’s Wartime Sweethearts,” they became great favorites of American troops overseas, performing in USO (United Service Organizations) shows.

In honor of Veteran's Day please remember to wear a red poppy for those who sacrificed their lives for us...

What a perfect selection to pay homage to those who have fought and still fight (and defend) valiantly.

I hope you had a lovely Veteran's day, sweet dear!
