Happy Memorial Day


My cousin Bill Lindes flanked by the Walsh twins, Bill and Kenny

Hope you're enjoying the holiday weekend -- and taking a moment to remember all of the men and women who died in service to the United States, like my (first!) cousin Billy Lindes Jr.,. Billy lied about his age so he could fight in the Korean War with his similarly aged uncles -- my dad and my Uncle Kenny -- but sadly perished overseas in 1953. I'm sorry I never got to know him. My dad always blamed himself for what happened.
