Shawn, Fred, Jerry and Dean spoke to the club today about "God Bless America". 
  • It was written by Irving Berlin, who wrote the song 20 years before the end of World War I. 
  • On her radio show, Kate Smith sang the Irving Berlin song for the first time, introducing it to the country. During World War II, she would sign off her radio show singing "God Bless America"
  • After 9/11, "God Bless America" became a staple at games and events, showcasing our country's patriotism. 
We thank them for telling us about the traditions and importance of "God Bless America", and how much it means to our country.
