30th May 2005Memorial Day
By Michael Boyle
Though a U.S. holiday I thought I would affirm that many of us here include United Kingdom soldiers as well in our thoughts and toasts today.

We've done a lot of fighting and dieing together.

Semper Fi

I don't want to assume the UK mantle but thanks for the thoughts expressed especially as we lost another soldier yesterday.

And, one day, we might even 'spell' together.

Yes I am one of the few who prefer to differentiate between mortal expiration and changing the colour of ones socks.

I'd just like to echo Mike's thoughts on Memorial Day. A soldier's lot is a tough one
and at times they make the greatest sacrifice.
It's good that we take the time to remember.
