Blues songs about War Question

Someone asked the question over at Yahoo Answers; Do you know of any blues songs about war?

My Answer

Yes, during Vietnam many blues musicians sang songs that mention that war.

"Vietnam Blues" by JB Lenoir

B.B. King has a couple of songs where he mentions returning from Vietnam.

Sonny Boy Williamson I also sang songs about WWII, as probably other musicians too. See his Decoration Day Blues No. 2 his album Essential Sonny Boy Williamson.
