Grateful for Memorial Day celebration

Thanks to all responsible for our Memorial Day celebration.

Never have the acoustics been so fine, the band so inspiring, the bugles especially so poignant and synchronized playing taps, topped off by the blessings of the clergy. I was so very moved.

I could have done without the Marine major telling us we were a bunch of unappreciative creeps and the lack of singing by the attendees of very familiar songs. We can do better than that.

I am grateful for the privilege of attending such a fitting memorial to our fine veterans. Thank you.
