Shipping out soon. Song ideas?

There's a show coming up at my school where people sign up and audition to play a song for the school during lunch time. I did the show earlier this year which was fun but i wantbto do it again. Im enlisting in the marines after this school year and i want to play a sort of 'fairwell' patriotic song. I can play American Soldier by Toby Keith well so i was considering that but idk. I play country btw and my voice is pretty deep. Just a list of songs would be nice thanks :)

    Look at some of Trace Atkins stuff. However, if you haven't signed up already, can a person talk you out of it? Frankly, I don't think fighting wars for rich men that sit back and let good men die so they get richer is very patriotic. Just remember what Patton said, "No one ever won a war by dying for his country. Wars are won by making that other son of a ***** die for his country."
