I also went online to find the words to "My Buddy," recalling it from Mitch Miller's recording in the 50's, and I found this thread. Thank you to the persons who asked the question, supplied the words, and supplied the historical facts of the African-American heroes of our world wars.
Finding this exchange of information was like walking into a beautiful meadow in the midst of a battle-scarred, bleak land. The kindly, thoughtful, gracious comments of all the e-mailers here and their interest in this haunting song of a fraternal bond uplifted me after a too-long political season of so many bitter, hostile, vitriolic exchanges on the Internet and TV. Thanks for the renewed hope!
