Think of lives lost this holiday

Today many have the day off in observance of Memorial Day. Many have plans to barbecue, go to a lake or river, spend time lounging by a pool or plan to visit with friends and family.

Rogers, Randy.jpg

There was a stark contrast between my Dad’s war and mine. They had Rosie the Riveter, rationing coupons, war bonds, Glenn Miller, Bob Hope and Betty Grable. We had Jane Fonda, Mohammed Ali, Abbie Hoffman and Country Joe and the Fish. He had Pearl Harbor, Iwo Jima and ticker tape parades. We had the Tet Offensive, Khe Sanh, Agent Orange, Mi Lai and Cal Berkley.
