Memorial Day 2010

Mick Fleming on Sunday, May 30, 2010 at 8:13:11 am

Holiday greetings to everyone on the "MickMet" roster, as well as those viewing my blog. To newbies and long-time pals, have a great Memorial Day weekend!  After the rollercoaster we've been on the last five (19?) months, you deserve a long weekend.

This is now the ninth consecutive Memorial Day that I have felt compelled to send a wartime Memorial Day message.  Living in northern VA, with so many neighbors in uniform, some in harm's way, we know that new heroes are at work around the world today who would just as soon not be part of a future Arlington ceremony.

 Maybe as you're grabbing a kielbasa off the grill or a MGD out of the cooler you'll think of some young lady in a funny looking jacket driving along a hot street in Kandahar this weekend, or a former cornerback on the local team breathing stale air in a sub off the coast of Korea.  Maybe you'll wonder about the newly re-assigned reservists joining a long thin line along our border, or those who are plying USCG cruisers through an oil slick the size of Maryland.  That's all they want to know we think of them from time to time.

Be safe.  Be well.  Be good.  Onward.
