Great editorial, “Not Just Another Three-day Weekend,” in the May 26 issue.
We have a veteran’s organization at Dauphin Way Baptist Church. We have about 50 members. We were talking about supporting the Memorial Day services at the veteran’s cemetery in Mobile. Only two couples showed up. The head of our organization said, “Everybody had other weekend plans; we will try to ‘push’ it better next year.” By the way, I was a Marine pilot during the Korean War, and that war was not mentioned in your editorial. How soon we forget.
