“Iraq is not like Viet Nam.” You’ve all heard this by the apologists for the war. Mr. Grant Remington from VFP Chapter 72 developed this very moving comparison in pictures with a song by John Fogarty.


The Soldier is a very moving song about war. Joe Beckman has graciously given MFSO-OC permission to use his song on our website. Joe is not a professional musician, just an LAUSD school social worker who writes as a hobby.

Soldier was written and performed by Joe Beckman © 2004. He has other moving songs about social justice and his site can be seen at
