There are some great bluegrass songs that can be used to honor veterans of our military services. You can also play patriotic songs from the the Independence Day list as well. How about playing songs by artists who are themselves military veterans, like Don Reno, Bobby Osborne, Red Allen, Del McCoury or the U.S. Navy Band Country Current?
