"Songs for Soldiers, Veterans and Patriots"
Presented by Ramblin Richard (Richard Kruppa)
“Ramblin' Richard" will sing, accompanying himself on three instruments, and tell the stories of the songs as they relate to the lives and experiences of members of the military, our veterans (some songs written by veterans) and touch the hearts of all patriotic Americans. Included are songs from the earliest days of our military and up to recent times. Please join us on the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, June 6, to enjoy the talents of “Ramblin Richard”.
