  • Memorial Song for Beirut

    Does anyone know if there has been a Memorial song made for Beirut?..I have been told by some there was..but noone seems to know it...this year is the 20th anniversery of the bombing of the Barracks in Beirut where 241 Marines,Sailors and Soldiers the year and a half Marines were in Beirut.....271 died..
    It is important to me to find out about a song....since I was there in 83. I appreciate any help you can give me...
    sigpicWe spend a lifetime worrying about if we make a difference....Marines don't have that problem.

    I am by no means an expert, so don't take this as gospel, but i've been singing about 18 years, and i'm not aware of a Beruit memorial song. I will of course ask some of my more knowledgable sources and share what i find out. If you do find one, i'ld be interested in who made it, and to hear it.

      Please, if anyone finds out that there is such a song, let me know. I was in the Marine Corps during that time, stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC. When the bombing happened, I was put on stand by to go over there to help with the clean up. I still get tears in my eyes just thinking about it.:(

        I can relate dancineagle, was in the Army. Knew a bunch of folks at Kobar towers, Suadi when it was bombed. also served in Desert Storm 1, get choked up when thinking about Kobar towers, and still get chills up my spine when Old Glory passes by. Will definetly see what I can find out this weekend. With it being the 20th anniversary, if there isn't one, maybe someone could make one. Just a thought.

          49singer, I was in Desert Storm 1 as well. I still think about the time I had over there. Some good and some bad. Hopefully, we can find a song to pay tribute to our fallen brothers and sisters.

          Stay strong and be encouraged.

            Is there anyone out there (and I know there is) who knows the meaning to the Jim Anquoe Song and don't mind sharing it with me. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post it here.

            by SpeakingOwl
            I was emceeing a college powwow recently. During the opening sequences they had the usual flag song, but immediately a victory song was presented and every one danced with the flags. Now I've witnessed this on many occasions, and respect this aspect of plains tribal observances.
            But on this...

            Composing So. Songs
            by WhoMe
            Have you ever composed a song?

            Did this song ever get sung at a powwow?

            How and where did you get the inspiration from?

            Did you put it on a recorder to save it?

            Did you add words to it?

            Was it an intertribal or specialty song?...
