The Real Reason We Have the Day Off Today

If we're not careful, it's easy to forget why today is a holiday (hint: it's not just "the beginning of summer" or "the day the pools open"). Even though Dad is a veteran, he served in peacetime, so his only "war wound" is the scar from when he split his thumb open playing softball in the Army. Since I don't have any eloquent personal experiences to relate, I'll let others do the talking:I hope you had a safe and wonderful holiday, and that you took some time to remember why it's there. And continued Godspeed to my four former students--Fletch, John, Josh and Scott--who are serving our country in a most honorable way, helping to keep things safe for the rest of us.
