I know all the words to the song, but didn't know it had hit No 1 back in the day.

Tanks for posting, Snaquebite.

It was the number one hit in the United States for five weeks in 1966 and was the number twenty-one song of 1960s

They just played this song at the conclusion of the fireworks show in our area.

It was part of a tribute to the armed forces, including Army, Navy, USMC, Air Force, and a few others- some that aren't often heard anymore- including the Ballad of the Green Beret.

ahh yes Sgt Barry Sadler. Had that one memorized from the juke box at the Legion Post I grew up going to.

My son sang 'The Ballad of the Green Beret' at a kindergarten talent show, word for word.....great moment right there....

(more like....recited it with a little jingle...but it was spectacular!!)

Way cool! I do remember Sgt. Sadler's version of the song, along with most of the lyrics, being played on the radio when I was a kid...
