(Sorry I did not get to this earlier. I spent part of today sitting Shiva with my aunt. My Uncle Bob who served in Europe during WWII passed on Tuesday. Feel free, even though it is now evening, to add memories of veterans you remember this day. - promoted by teacherken)
My first cousin, Mike Stiglich, was killed in Vietnam at the age of 23 nearly 40 years ago, and I am especially reminded of him on Memorial Day each year.
Several years ago, I wrote an account of my memories of Mike and, last year, Hank Bostwick of the Star City Harbinger was kind enough to enhance and then publish it on his blog.
This year, with further updates including photos of my cousin, Hank has again posted "Mike" on SCH at this link:
Please remember the importance and significance of this holiday.
