This collection of service songs of the U.S. Armed Forces is designed as a standard setting of each of the service tunes of the armed services of the United States. The songs are listed in the protocol order as provided by the Department of Defense.
Each service song can be played as a separate arrangement or this may be performed as a medley. If you use drums you can use the drum cadence as a bridge between each tune. If you don’t use drums you can play it straight down skipping over the cadence. All the songs are in good keys to sing.
I have added “Heave Ho, My Lads, Heave Ho”, the official service song of the US Merchant Marines. When performing a traditional medley of service songs of the US Armed Forces, “Heave Ho My Lads” is not included. It is added here due to many requests for the song.
The arrangement can be played with a standard quintet or with optional substitute parts provided.
