On Memorial Day...

I'm remembering the 104 West Point graduates killed in action since 9/11 2001. And that's just Army, just officers, and just one commissioning source. There are 6,614 others worthy of remembrance - please honor all of them with a moment of reflection today.

I even just found some poppies blooming. Different conflict, but apropos.

The Poppy to this day is the flower England uses to honor its Veterans who gave all. Rememberance Day is November 11.

Remembering my father today, one of thousands in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. His service as a Radar Officer, including Russian Convoys.

And Australia - and quite possibly other Commonwealth countries. Remember all who gave the ultimate sacrifice. On whatever day it is.
