Memorial Day is May 26th, it used to always be on May 30th before our fixation with Monday Holidays.
It is a day of Remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service- the ultimate sacrifice.
I'll open with song that is also a Poem, taken word for word from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
And later in, a song adapted from a Poem- this one written in 1942 by a not famous woman, Elma Dean, an Oakland housewife just doing her part during WWII.
Both are beauties!
You will detect some snarl in here, when I mention Benghazi and some VA Hospitals cooking the books to look good and receive bonuses, criminally letting Veterans die in the process.
These Rockollections shows always reflect my mood- I bring me to them- and I knew going in I'd undoubtedly have something to say.
Join me for some Music that Says Something!
