in The Way We See It on June 02, 2010
From the May 30, 2010 CSI Walworth County Sunday "The Way we see it" column:
Over the years, as Americans became further removed from the great conflicts of the 20th century, we’ve wondered whether the soul of Memorial Day has been sacrificed to a national obsession with recreation.
Today, however, the continuing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan remind us — some more intimately than others, to be sure — that this solemn holiday always will be much more than just a day at the beach.
