I understand it isn't from the actual Vietnam era but what is everyone's take on Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA?

The version I posted was intended for his 1982 album Nebraska rather than the more opulent 1985 release. What I find interesting about the lyrical content is how it follows a story some of you may of experienced; shipped off to Vietnam, came back and tried looking for work but no luck and the VA were uncooperative. Quite a political statement when you consider the 1985 release is known on my side of the pond as a stereotypical "GO TEAM AMERICA" anthem.

I can't think of any pro-war songs.

This one is past our time but some R&R guys might like it, even though the lyrics are very miss leading.

My unit, the 3/506th of the 101st Airborne Division, went to Vietnam on a ship. The most popular song for a long time after it arrived in Vietnam was (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay by Otis Redding:

Not pro-war, but at least made with sympathy for the servicemen

Rod Bernard - A Tear In A Lady's Eye
(released on SSS International SSS-822 single in December 1970)
Sorry, couldn't find it in youtube.

And there was Hershel Gober's album THE PROUD AMERICAN (released on Patriot 91140 in 1968)
