Memorial Day

The late Andy Rooney (Sgt, US Army: Bronze Star, Air medal):


I've written a fair number of pieces on Memorial Day, some rants, some not.

War is a bloody, messy business. The powers that be, in every nation, do their best to hide that fact.

Today, we honor the memory of the men and, increasingly, women, who died in the service of our country. Amidst the various profanities of the day, three-day sales and the like, take a moment to remember them.
