Remembering those who put the greater good of our nation and humanity above their own.
Memorial Day 2019
Last year on Memorial Day, this is what it was like at the White Wolf Mine.
Ah the memories. Last year was a miserable winter and it lasted right up to Memorial Day. Then it dried out and the Forest Service started doing controlled burns, filling the air with smoke and soot. Thanks USGOV.
This year couldn’t be more different. Summer came early and the locals are whining about it being too dry. The plague never touched the place. And I have six grandchildren and their parents visiting.
More than enough.
Ut nos es, eris – As we (the dead) are, you will be
A friend who ghosts this blog and who served in the French Foreign Legion asked me to post Le Boudin. (Here you go – “LEGIO PATRIA NOSTRA” La légion étrangère. Défilé 14 juillet 2012.) The day is for American war dead, but I don’t have a problem with honoring the Legion. The Axe and the Apron of the engineers/pioneers always lead the military parade on Bastille Day.
