A birthday surprise

Received this letter this week.




This is the most beautiful site I have visited! My father, soon to be 85, was with the Merrill's Marauders, and one of the fortunate ones to make it home. In celebration of his 85th Birthday, I am looking for two songs that he and some of his comrades use to sing.


1. A soldiers Last Letter

2. All Go Home But One


This will be a "special" surprise to him as I will be singing it :-) If you have any information in regards as to where or how I can obtain this music and the lyrics, please let me know :-)


Thanks again for this beautiful site of memories!

Dear Wendi:


Sorry for the delay, but our best friend died this past week, and things have been in a state of chaos. It was sudden and unexpected and took both of us for a spin. Things are settling down now and I am trying to play catch-up with the log of email.


Glad you are enjoying the site, but I don't have those songs in my repertoire. However, upon doing a Google search, came up with many topics, which include the lyrics, etc.




I did find this one too:




I hope that helps you, and please write back and let me know what transpires.
