Yes its that time of year where all DHFs sit on the Group W bench and sing along, with feeling. Because, "If you want to end war and stuff you got to sing loud."

Back when I was stationed at Hunter Army Airfield outside of Savanna GA, there was a fellow that had been through the Whitehall Street induction center and subsequently shipped over to Vietnam for his tour of duty. He had this album and used to play it continuously (or so it seemed) at a volume that carried it down the hall of the barracks so we all could enjoy it as much as he did.

One of the local radio stations (KINK) here in Little Beirut plays this every Thanksgiving. Just a reminder that there used to a thing called the draft.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
