Two songs from Mark Knopfler -

 

Piper to the End (Knopfler's uncle Freddie was a piper who died in WWI)

 

Rememberance Day  (same as our Veteran's Day / Armistice Day in the UK to remember the fallen soldiers of WWI)

OMG, I remember hearing about him, and that he testified before Congress! I didn't recognize the name, but I do remember the story. I'm pretty sure he was mentioned in the Ken Burns documentary about the Viet Nam War because it talked about the soldiers that were trying to rescue civilians and stop the slaughter that was occuring. Truly a hero!
