Patrick Gray/KabikPhotoGroup.comThe man who wrote one of the most passionate war-protest songs of the ’60s, “Fortunate Son,” has been teaming with active soldiers to play for some less-than-fortunate soldiers.

Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty teamed with the U.S. Army Field Band’s Six-String Soldiers on Thursday to visit the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System in North Las Vegas to commemorate National POW-MIA Recognition Day.

They visited with and performed for the hospital’s resident veterans. In addition to playing some of his legendary tunes, Fogerty — who was drafted in 1966 and opted to serve a year in the Army Reserves — was given a scroll of the poem “To a Vietnam Veteran.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is in Las Vegas for John Fogerty — Fortunate Son in Concert, a two-week residency at The Venetian Las Vegas that began Wednesday and runs through October 1. Six-String Soldiers is a quartet of Army sergeants who play folk, Americana, bluegrass and Irish music; they’ve been opening for Fogerty during this run.
