Featured Artist

Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler was a singer, songwriter, actor, author, and military veteran. He was born in Carlsbad, New Mexico on November 1, 1940. His father died of cancer when Barry was 7 years old, and his mother managed several restaurants in the area.

Sadler joined the Air Force in 1958, and then later re-enlisted in the Army. His performance and record caused his instructors to recommend him for the United States Special Forces, also known as the Green Berets. Sadler served as a combat medic and weapons expert with the Special Forces in Vietnam, earning a Purple Heart, the National Defense Medal, and the Vietnam Service Medal.

In 1965, while recovering from an injury he received while serving in Vietnam, Sadler turned to songwriting. In 1966, Sadler released “The Ballad of the Green Berets.” By far his biggest hit, it stayed at Number One for five weeks, and eventually became Billboard Magazine’s number one single of the entire year.

The slogan of the Green Berets is “To Free the Oppressed.” Operating all over the world, the elite unit’s mission involves not only neutralizing threats, but also “winning the hearts and minds” of the local people. Green Berets are trained in combat tactics and reconnaissance, as well as psychological warfare, disinformation, diplomacy, and the languages, culture, and politics of the areas in which they will serve. Those chosen to become a member of the Special Forces must be male between the ages of 20 and 30, have an outstanding record of prior military service, and the ability to qualify for certain security clearances and paratrooper training. Applicants must also have excellent vision and be highly motivated.

Following his military career and time as a singer and songwriter, Sadler became an author, penning a series of 22 novels featuring an immortal main character known as Casca, the eternal mercenary. He married once, and had two sons and a daughter. He died in 1989 at the age of 49.
