Suggest you look no further than one was a Jew and the other a Gentile & one had a good time and died and the other didn't!

Oh it's just like me to miss the obvious. Any ideas about Mr. Ira Hayes (I heared he was a hero, though not the spelling of his name).

Ira Hayes - native American who (helped) raised the Stars & Stripes in WW2 immortalised in "Sands of Iwo Jima" (hope that's right).

Haven't heard the song. Music from the early 70s was something to die to (not "for" like it should be.)
