- Ep030 - A Choice Voice Podcast - Gen. Douglas MacArthur – Old Soldiers Never Die – April 1951 Pt 02 John Brandy 11:08
I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the Army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment of all of my boyish hopes and dreams. The world has turned overmany times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point, and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished, but I still remember the refrain of one of the most popular barrack ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that “old soldiers never die; they just fade away.”
And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty.

Finally, you can find us on Podmatch, where we consider guests as well as consider guesting on other people’s pods.
And really finally, the music for our pods comes from “Cute” by Bensound, and from “Piano Background” by Nick Simon Adams, both on freesound.org.
