The Lady and Her Song
Times were difficult during the turmoil and conflict in South East Asia. The nation was strongly divided on the support of the US Military and their efforts.
We remember Lynn best for the song "I never promised you a Rose Garden". It was used as a recruiting motto by the Marines, and of course for giving us the name for a little piece of real estate in Thailand.
While America was divided on the support of the men and women of the Armed Forces, Lynn showed support by visiting and entertaining the troops.
Lynn remains active in her support by serving on the Board of Directors of the Viet Nam Veteranís Memorial in Angel Fire New Mexico.
As a patriot before patriotism was cool, the Veterans of the Rose Garden salute Lynn Anderson.
