Every once in a while someone sings a song that becomes enduring in our country.  It transends culture and lasts from generation to generation and seems to capture the spirit of America.  Frank Sinatra recorded New York New York and it still epitomizes the vibrant spirit of a great city. This morning I heard Lee Greenwood perform on Fox and Friends  “God Bless the USA”.  Although it has been 30 years since he recorded it the song is still a treat to hear.   General Norman Swartzkof stated after Desert Storm that this was his favorite parriotic song.  What a wonderful way to begin Memorial Day.  Seems like just yesterday that I was standing in the middle of the Saudi Desert watching fighters flyng overrhead going to Iraq and not so much earlier that I saw islands off the coast of South Viet Nam when we cruised by from our home port in Mayport.  So proud of our country.
