Memorial Day not about politics and parties

Call it corny, call it old-fashioned, call it whatever you will, but I do not use the phrase “Happy Memorial Day.” To me, there’s nothing happy about it. Grateful, yes. Thankful, yes.

A single shell, a determined man, and 36 allied airmen never to be forgotten

The skies above Giessenlanden, Holland, are peaceful now, but during World War II, they were the battleground for flying beasts locked in duels to the death the likes which will never be seen again.
