Memorial Day Background Checks






I like this photo, which was taken during the summer of 2005. Look close and you can see the nearly full moon. We have had a flag in view since 9/11, but we've always flown one on Memorial Day. My dad was in Korea as a decoder. I have cousins that are retired military and who have sons in places they never should have to be in. I thought this year I'd find a photo of the flag on the moon with our planet in the background, the whole mirror image thing, but I came across that third photo. There are more important things to show with a flag in the foreground on Memorial Day, of all days. The moon will be there forever. I leave the final words, again, to Sgt. Rock of Easy Company...Rest easy, servicemen and veterans. Wayne

Whatever happened to that Bruce Willis SGT. ROCK movie? He would have been good in that role.

I used to know comic fans who figured that Clint Eastwood was the best to have portrayed Rock.

Travis has a great post about some of the medal of honor winners. Young men of incredible bravery, although I wish they'd never had to exhibit it.
