You know, Barb...sometimes I think Memorial Day should be observed on July 3rd, obviously for the connection with our liberty.

I don't care what holiday they declare for their sales, etc. but I've always thought it was a bit tawdry connecting those sales with a day which should be solemn: Especially now with so many killed and wounded in very recent conflicts. I feel badly for those families still recently or freshly grieving having to watch the bbq's and t.v. sales commercials.

Theres a lot of us old farts on WC that served.  Retired from the Army in 89.  Just started wearing my NAM hat about 2 years ago and have had dinners bought for me from strangers.  Brought tears to my eyes as I remember how we were treated back then.  I salute all that served.
