Memorial Day

Last year, with some time on my quarantined hands, I wrote and posted on Facebook the following story for Memorial Day. I’m not going to repost it every year, but it feels right to do so this year. Yesterday, at my request, grandson Sol, nearly 13, named for my dad, read this from top to bottom. “Great story,” he said. Family history, passed to a new generation on Memorial Day weekend. (This probably won’t look right on a cell phone. Best to click the headline and try it on a desktop or a tablet.)

  1. Now that’s a love story that Hollywood could only hope to replicate. It definitely reminds us of the true meaning of this weekend’s holiday. Thanks so much.

  2. Marty, today is a day for remembrance! We have much to be thankful for, but need to also keep in mind the sacrifices made by others.
