I've been trying to come up with something profoundly appropriate to write about Memorial Day. There's a long tradition of military service in my family, and I lost an uncle I never met in WWII. But words have failed me all day, and just recently I found this at NRO that says it better than I ever could have: "This Memorial Day . . ." by Peter Hegseth. Please read!
We will also be watching the National Memorial Day Concert on PBS, in just under an hour from now (8:00 Eastern). I believe it is showing again at other times. Emceed by Gary Sinese and Joe Mantegna, the Concert is in its 20th year of honoring our fallen soldiers and sailors, as well as our veterans and those serving today.
