Memorial Day

1st Battalion 1st Marine Division. Korea.

Open Thread

As I do each year, I'll be spending part of today at Tahoma National Cemetery. The kids aren't with me, which is unusual. They're at a party in the south-east part of Puget Sound.

A lot of veterans come out to the cemetery. Including during the year, but especially Memorial Day weekend, 4th of July, and Veterans Day.

Later in the day, I'm going to go to a good restaurant and have a steak. I feel the need for some serious protein in my diet. And I continue to work my way through Jeff Sharlet's amazing book, The Family. Which I'll do a full post on, once I'm done reading. Amazing material, highly recommended.

What are your plans?
