Green Berets, Barry Sadler 1966 top song

Remember Barry Sadler? The Green Beret who had a hit single in 1966, “The Ballad of the Green Berets?” It beat out the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Supremes and a lot of others. Fast forward to 2015. Women are actively trying to pass tests this spring to be admitted into the Greet Beret ranks. If so, will someone write a new song? Will the word ‘men’ be changed to ‘soldiers’, ‘fighters’ or another gender-neutral word?
