Memorial Day

Social media will explode with people “mil-splaining” the meaning behind Memorial Day (hat tip to the Angry Staff Officer for the “mil-splaining” term).

As a guy who has watched Soldiers lowered into the ground and rendered final honors by their country, I give you permission to enjoy your weekend. Taking a nice weekend to somberly reflect on the sacrifice of others isn’t what any of the guys, and gal, I knew would want.

They would want you to be American. Some of them would be offended if you didn’t knock back a few. All of them would want you to spend time with family.

Celebrate your freedom, and the folks who paid the price to keep it free. The folks I knew were pretty bad ass.
