This record at least 92 years old

Upon the recent passing of the Original Navajo Codetalker John Brown Jr. (my late friend Kimos grandfather) I found that he and my grandfather were high school buddies. My grandfather joined the Army and went to Europe and John joined the Marines and helped developed the Navajo Code.
So this memorial day as a special tribute to all the armed services and the family, lover and children they leave behind I found this record. Written for soldiers battling world war one its a song to cheer up the ones left behind. This record is the best that Victor recording studios could offer when they use the best recording techs, engineers and material. Too bad that acoustic recording experts and their talents were not used on every Victor recording.
