Ballad Of The Green Berets By S/Sgt Barry Sadler

During the 1960’s, there were dozens of famous anti-war and protest songs but very few patriotic songs.

Barry Sadler was a real Green Beret and on March 4, 1966, his “Ballad Of The Green Berets” topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the first of 5 weeks. It would become the number one single of the year.
