Finally, the sun is out in full force this morning. Today is Memorial Day, and please don’t forget to stop and reflect on all of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for this great country.
I personally will be visiting my 83 year-old father, a Korean War veteran. The Korean War is widely considered the “forgotten” war (a police action), but it was as intense as any war this country has ever participated in. Over 33K Americans were killed in the war, which was used as the backdrop of CBS’ iconic serio-comedy M*A*S*H, a show that captivated TV audiences for eleven seasons in the 1970′s and 80′s.
Best line of the show was from Corporal Klinger: “If this is a police action, how come no one’s getting arrested?”
Some Giant news…..
