Song: Belleau Wood

Published December 3, 2015 by lynn k scott

I credit my sister for introducing me to the singing of Garth Brooks.  While the introduction started, with “Papa Loves Mama”, my appreciation and enjoyment of Garth’s music has grown substantially over the years.  I admit, I wasn’t always a country fan, but there are a lot of good songs out there.

This time three years ago, my sister asked me to post this song to her Facebook account.  She was in the hospital and having trouble posting it. It was a job I did for her when her illness prevented her from doing so.

I had never heard the song “Belleau Wood” by Garth Brooks.  It’s still hard to listen to it, without getting misty-eyed, because it’s such a reminder of my sister, her unwaivering love for our military and our bond.  Every year, I listen to this song, just like I would “Silent Night” or any other Christmas song.

The song recounts a Christmas truce in 1914.  Some will argue its validity. Regardless of whether the truce actually took place, it’s something to believe in.  That our enemies aren’t as different as we’d like to believe.   That we share a commonality with our fellow man.  There was temporarily “peace on Earth”; more precisely in Belleau Wood.
