...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...
I couldn't recommend any Memorial Day post more highly than this one, from Cassandra of Villainous Company.
Also read this angry poem: "Who Cares if A Soldier Dies?" re-posted at I Love Jet noise.
Take a Memorial Day trip through the National Mall with Romeocat. There are plenty of great pictures and video from her recent visit.
God bless America's heroes and defenders.
