Bless Our Troops (unison)
by Teresa Jennings
A hymn-like piece like this one really needs no explanation. The sentiment is universal. For that reason, we would like to make it available to anyone who wants to use it. So while it is included in this issue of Music K-8, we are also putting it on our web site as one of our exclusive free songs. Feel free to share it with your students, other teachers, your community, and so forth. The details for what is included in the downloadable version can be found in the box on page 67. (Note that we have included a unison version as well.)
One thing about the a cappella version: We cut the ending a bit to make it work better without background tracks. So it doesn't quite match the printed music, but it's better this way if you want to do it a cappella.
Online extras - The free, downloadable song mentioned can be found under "Downloads" on our home page, as well as under the "Graphics and Extras" for Volume 21, No. 1 at MusicK8.com
