This post failed to get posted back at the end of May. I sort of take Memorial Day seriously and am of the view all war vets should get Veteran's day off while the rest of us work.
I have some work coming up that will take me near some of the bloodiest Washington State battle sites that will be worth a post or two time permitting.
"The next day, I was asked by the people from the graves registration to direct them around the previous day's battle so they could pick up dead Americans. It was not a very pleasant job." - William McShane.
