    Our national march piece "Stars and stripes forever" on solo piano.. rewritten in a famous(very difficult) transcription by Vladimir Horowitz, played by him as well.

    YouTube - Horowitz-Sousa Stars and Stripes Forever Transcription

    (Just listening, no video.. was performed when he first came to the US in the 40's)

    Still one of my favorite songs honouring the fallen in battle.


    And without irony I wish to pay tribute to the bravery of my Polish ancestors, especially in their desperate fight in 1939:

    To the guys in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
    "Bayonets were used as a direct attack weapon by Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders troops from the British Army in the second conflict in Iraq. When two landrovers of Highlander troops were ambushed by soldiers loyal to cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, the Highlander troops fixed bayonets to their rifles and charged the militiamen. 30 Iraqi gunman were killed and 12 were captured."

    The brave men of the Special Air Service. They've saved a ton of civilian lives, and they're the best at what they do. Respect!
