Great Toujours Pret Day to all of you fine troopers of the great 2nd ACR.

I am looking for an upbeat soldier song for my Memorial day movie.  I need something to 'lighten it up'.

Any recommendations.  

Sig Soldier boy from the Shirelles don't work and neither does 'You're a thousand miles away'

Please give me some ideas.  It can be from any era.

Thanks to all you troopers who wished us a happy anniversary, our kids put on a wonderful celebration, we had about a hundred folk, family & friends there, my only regret was our space was limited. But we all had fun.
