    He's the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B

    A Tribute to Our Parents

    It's December, nearly one year after the bombing at Pearl Harbor. One night, in Hollywood at the USO, the band strikes up, and the Andrew Sisters began to sing the song everyone wanted to hear.

    He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
    He had a boogie style that no one else could play
    He was the top man at his craft
    But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
    He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille
    He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    The soldiers and sailors grabbed the nearest gal and they went wild dancing the Boogie Woogie with thoughts of war, perhaps for the last time, far, far, away.

    It became the iconic song of World War II. Our finest hour. Our greatest generation. Let these men and women know how much you appreciate what they did. Before they leave us.

    Well done sir. Great theme. It was a time when the world reached the depths of horror, and climbed the pinnacles of greatness. I have always been fascinated by that era, it's events, and it's remarkable people.

    Thanks everyone. I, like Barnburner have spent a lifetime looking up to these people.

    On the periphery, impinging upon the crowd is the threat. In the middle, a glowing beacon of hope.

    GXH. as ever...

    Coops. Yes I thought cave paintings. But it became a dance floor.

    Justjean and others, even as a child, thank you for your sacrifice.

    What a fine effort, PD! apart from having a "cave art" feel to it, as mentioned above, it also has the feel of the kokopelli (check out google if you´re not familiar with him). He too was a musician. Again, great painting.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.
