Music included “Ol’ Man River” music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, “Memphis Blues” written by W.C. Handy, “String of Pearls” written by Jerry Gray, “Armed Forces Salute” and more. The “Armed Forces Salute” is a medley that includes The Caisson Song, Semper Paratus, the Marines’ Hymn, Anchors A Weigh and The Airforce song. Veterans were asked to stand and be recognized as their branch song was played.
