Infantry Pointman and Songwriter Michael J Martin
Our guest this week on Veterans Radio is Michael J. Martin’s daughter, Andy Martin, who will be sharing some stories about her Dad. And, of course, we will be playing many of his songs.
Michael J. Martin was a frequent guest on Veterans Radio and is one of our favorites. He was one of those “tried and true ol’ troubadours”. He lived the songs he wrote and sang. His music has some miles on it. For years, he traveled throughout America, performing at concerts, colleges, clubs, pubs, churches, prisons, military bases, museums, biker bars, hospitals, and honky tonks. Michael J. Martin served 12 months in Vietnam, “in the bush”, mostly as a Pointman, with the 11th Infantry / American Division, class of 1968-69. His citations include: Silver and Bronze Stars, Purple Heart, and Combat Infantryman’s Badge. He is gone now but he lives on through his music. Listen to some of his music here. Enjoy.
