Deployment Playlist

From "The Battle Hymm of the Republic" to "Fortunate Son," members of the armed forces have always found purpose and solace in music. But unlike earlier generations of soldiers, newer technology like iPods and mp3 players give post-9/11 veterans portable and easy ways to bring their music on deployments.
