Annie and the Vets

George Johnson -
US Navy, Vietnam, 1962-66

"When I met George I realized that his voice had the quality I was looking for so I asked him to sing with Anne and me, not knowing if he could. We were lucky because George had once been a drummer and, along with his excellent timing, he can sing on key!" (Phil Pflager)

According to the Palo Alto Weekly, George has an "...emotion-filled voice (that) sounds like he gargles with gravel every morning."


Phil Pflager -
US Air Force, 1961-65 (incl. Vietnam)
After discovering the electric guitar, Phil played in rock & roll and country bands from high school through his military service. He more recently discovered acoustic music and organized a Bluegrass band that played at the Good Old- Fashioned Bluegrass festival in Hollister, California. When it became apparent that the government had forsaken the goal of a peaceful world, songs of peace took center stage and other musical endeavors moved to the back burner. While "Annie and the Vets" isn't his only musical interest, it now takes up most of his spare time.


Anne E. Pflager - Veterans' Supporter
Anne is the "Annie" in "Annie and the Vets." She has a mind like a tape recorder and is able to remember the lyrics to hundreds of songs as well as the tunes. In the past ten years she has developed a solid guitar style which supports most of the songs that 'Annie and the Vets" perform.


Navy veteran Lynne Hill
We used the special finger-style guitar skills of Navy veteran Lynne Hill when we recorded a song by Larry Penn, "The Sins of the Father." We wanted to duplicate Larry's guitar style as closely as possible and Lynne did an excellent job!


"Annie and the Vets" hope that you will join us in "Singing Peace to Power" and we hope that you will tell your friends of our CD!

Proceeds received from sales of this CD are going to Veterans for Peace.
