Number 1 hit fot 5 weeks in 1966...for those too young to know, that would be during the last tumultuous war America was involved in...Vietnam.

Some more interesting trivia about the song:
A decorated combat veteran, Barry Sadler penned this song and others about the Special Forces that went on to sell over 11 million records with The Ballad remaining at # 1 for five straight weeks in 1966. It was the top single of the year in which the British Invasion, led by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, dominated the charts. It still ranks #21 for that 1960-1969 rock era and was the #1 single for ‘66, eclipsing Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots are Made for Walking.
Pretty impressive!
