The Army was the original source of the V-Disc records, with their first  being issued in October of 1943. The Army’s V-Disc project provided a monthly 'care' package of music specially recorded for troops overseas. Soldiers fighting a far-flung war welcomed these musical snapshots of life back home.

This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.
