I had a different post planned for today, but then I realized it was going to be Memorial Day. What do you do on Memorial Day? It kind of snuck up on me this month. I know a lot of people go to picnics and parades, but I do something completely different. I watch war movies. All weekend long. It’s my way of remembering and honoring those who died.

What do you do on Memorial Day?

For love of country, they accepted death,
and thus resolved all doubts,
and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.
James Garfield
