Helping my Brother in law look for a song that was about a military guy, Ranger or some such, that is singing the song. It's from the 50's or 60's.

This ain't much to go on, but you guys are awesome at stuff like this.

The Ballad of the Green Baret?

Fighting soldiers from the sky
Fearless men who jump and die
Men who mean just what they say
The brave men of the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men we'll test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Trained to live, off nature's land
Trained in combat, hand to hand
Men who fight by night and day
Courage deep, from the Green Beret

Silver wings upon their chest
These are men, America's best
One hundred men we'll test today
But only three win the Green Beret

Back at home a young wife waits
Her Green Beret has met his fate
He has died for those oppressed
Leaving her this last request

Put silver wings on my son's chest
Make him one of America's best
He'll be a man they'll test one day
Have him win the Green Beret

Ya'll are an awesome bunch of guys. Thanks a ton. Sad that I didn't know it, but my mind wasn't focusing on this one for some reason.

That song always makes me think of the Cheers episode where Cliff is thinking of moving to Canada until he hears Woody humming The Ballad of the Green Beret.
