Thoughts on Memorial Day

Memorial Weekend. There is a cartoon by Joe Heller [See Huckleberries] showing a guy filling his gas tank next to a cemetery and he says "I'm not going to complain about the high cost of anything this weekend.:" Pan to the right and the cemetery headstones read: Viet Nam, Iwo Jima, Persian Gulf, Pearl Harbor, the Bulge, Iraq, Afghanistan, Khe Sanh, Tet, Normandy, Midway, Okinawa, Inchon, Korea, Gettysburg, Valley Forge, etc., etc., etc.
