Happy Independance Day 2016!

On this Independence Day 2016 I thought a perfect tribute would be one of my favorite 4th of July memories from several years ago when I first heard this rendition of God Bless America:

Here is another favorite memory that I thought appropriated for today:

This is the closing scene in John Wayne's "Swing Out Sweet Land" 1970 TV Special. Besides John Wayne, the song "God Bless America" features Lucille Ball, Jack Benny,   Dan Blocker, Rosco Lee Brown, Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash, Roy Clark, Bing Crosby, Phyllis Diller, Lorne Greene, Celeste Holm, Bob Hope, Michael Landon, Ann-Margret, Dean Martin, Ross Martin, Ed McMahon, Greg Morris, David Nelson, Rick Nelson, Hugh O'Brien, Doodletown Pipers, Dan Rowan, Dick Martin, Rowan & Martin, William Shatner, Red Skelton, Tom Smothers, Leslie Uggams, and Dennis Weaver.
