Today is #MemorialDay, a time to remember fallen comrades who died defending freedom. On this day and #VeteransDay, I recall my father who served 35 years inn the Army. He fought in the South Pacific during WWII, Korea and had two tours in #Vietnam. It was possible only because he had a break in service. The man saw a lot of combat. He and I overlapped in Vietnam by six months. I recently had a nice e-mail from someone who had met him in the service. I also remember my uncle Monte who I was named after. He fought and died in the South Pacific during WWII. His body was never recovered. I hope some day that his dog tags show up. I am remembering several friends and classmates who died in Vietnam. It's good to remember their sacrifice. We should all pause for a minute during our barbeques and picnics to remember what today is all about. Happy Memorial Day.
