What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

The Battle of Belleau Wood in WW1 is considered to be the place where the US Marine Corps became a fully-fledged fighting force. It took place in June of 1918, hence the placement of the history and the song honouring those men here today. As per the pattern established for this series, the Indy Neidell description, with the background to the song creation, is followed by the vid of the song in full. I rather like this one from one of the US tours of the band; you see shots of the audiences that include toddlers, grannies and grandads, and even the deaf totally rocking out!
