DC Public Library is honoring Veterans all month. Read along with us as we discover the stories of Veterans and books about their experiences as they walk the battlefield and the streets of home.
DC Public Library has been honoring Veterans all month long with a variety of special events. The impact of music on the war weary at home and abroad is of special note. Through the years, American popular music has connected those serving overseas with memories of home and hope. Civilians back home often associated pop songs of a given era with life during wartime and family members fighting far from home.
The music of three distinct eras had an emotional impact during a time of war.
