Can you figure out who our rhyming riddle refers to?

On August 19th, his production of Yip Yip Yaphank made its New York city debut, 1918 was the year,

Created while a soldier in the U.S. Army, it led to one of the best-remembered works of his career,

This was a song he wrote for the show that he decided did not fit, as a result he cut it away,

It emerged some 20 years later when introduced in 1938 on what we now call Veteran’s Day.
