Memorial Day reads

We’re still out of town, so this is a quick post-let:

1. Thank a veteran today & take the time to listen to the old family stories for the millionth time.

2. If you’re a military history buff, check out THIS post I did a while back.

3. For a really interesting perspective on the aftermath of war, check out these authors, and then thank a vet again.

4. Randomly, I always thought of Memorial day as a general day of remembrance, not just for vets (not that I disagree at all) and ALL the graves in the local cemeteries will get spiffed up… is this a regional thing?
