My uncle (my father’s oldest living brother) served in the Second World War and was given a military honor by the French government about two years ago for a feat of heroism that he never spoke of. You see, records of his deed were lost in a fire decades ago, and it took years of work by an army Colonel to recover the information.
John is still hale and hearty at the age of 88 and he still kids around with his baby brother. But nearly all of his friends are gone now, and too many of them died in Europe.
Please take the time today to remember all of them, and especially the ones who serve now, like our own Amy. Casey (and Jayne) would emphasize – “Don’t you forget them.” – with a finger poke and a glare.
Now, what are you doing reading this??? Go out and enjoy a barbecue!
