Song about the return from war. Texas Jim was turned away by the Army to serve because he was rather thin for his height. But undismayed, he later was accepted by the U.S. Marines. While with them, he also entertained the troops while still going through his boot camp regimen. His war service included serving in the Pacific Theatre and he ended up in Omura, Japan, which was less than 25 miles from Nagasaki, where the second atom bomb landed. While at Omura, he was named Chief Announcer and entertainer for the Kyushu Network. He was honorably discharged in August 1946 and promptly headed home to Nyack, New York.
