Memorial Day

Not a "Happy" holiday to wish anyone, given the somber nature of it. Although most of us would rather think of it as the first weekend of summer, the real purpose of it is to honor the sacrifice our veterans have made for us and their country.

Veterans like the 1,177 men of the U.S.S. Arizona, entombed forever in a ship that still weeps for their loss.

Thank you for mentioning the USS Arizona - I have a cousin entombed there.

Don't let the EPA know that there is still oil and bunker fuel leaking from the ship.
