      Do you have the album put together by Dr. Lydia Fish called, In Country: Songs of Americans in the Vietnam War?

      There was a TV special on Austin City Limits about the time it came out, hosted by Kris Kristofferson.  Here is a video clip from that program. This is Chuck "Jeep" Rosenberg who was Special Forces. He recently retired and now spends his time traveling and performing for veterans groups. We corresponded for a time and he wanted to know how much I thought music might help to heal some of the emotional wounds.  I told him a LOT, and don't dare quit. I thought it might help the musicians as well.

      This song is called "Dai-Uy Joe".
