Memorial Day 2012
Raining today, so while I'm cooking outside we're eating inside. The better part of four and a half decades really went by fast, didn't it. Just don't believe I've forgotten your names or your faces, and don't think you've missed anything. You haven't. And while we used to say "don't mean nothin'", in a way it did. At least we taught the country how to welcome back their shot up children. These kids don't have to worry about getting wet paper bags full of dog shit tossed at them, and guess what? Even the newspapers and TV stations are saying the word "hero". What goes around comes around, eh? We just happened to be the tweeners, caught twixt WWII and the modern age so no one knew how to act. Still and all, we fought as hard and won as much as anyone ever did no matter what Cronkite said.
