"My Buddy"

Hello Afrigeneas Military Forum Members:

Ever since I heard "My Buddy" sung as a eulogy to veterans who passed away, I've been curious as to its significance or connection to the military.

Briefly, I attended the 761st Tank Battalion Veterans Reunion in Atlanta a few years ago. During their very moving memorial prayer ceremony, the veterans sang "My Buddy". "Nights are long since you went away, I dream about you each night and day....My buddy, My buddy...your buddy misses you...etc." Is this a song connected to all military or just the 761st?

No one in the 761st could tell me if the song was sung at other military ceremonies. Perhaps someone knows.

Enclosed is the url that mentions Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Scroll down and read about his connection to the 761st.
