Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day in the USA.

Today I remember Robert Smith, my uncle, served at the same time Korea was winding up.

Today I remember William "Standing Bear" Dawkins. He served during WW2 in the Pacific and during the Korean War.

Today I remember Frederick Gabow. We served together.

Today I remember Carroll "Neptunis Lex" LeFon. He served during Desert Storm and beyond and his writing inspired me to improve mine.

Today I remember Davy McGuire. He served through Vietnam in submarines.

Gentlemen, I miss you all.

Order, Arms.

However, enjoy the extra day off, baseball, hockey (??!!??) and the Indy 500. It is for those simple pleasures we served that you could.
