Memorial Day is May 28th, 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 a song that is also a Poem, taken word for word from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
And later, 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 from me in here and Part 2.
These Rockollections shows always reflect my mood, lol!
