The Remembrance Matter

I get my middle name from a great uncle who served in World War Two as the tail-gunner in a B-17. He didn't make it back. Admittedly, I don't think of him - and the millions of other soldiers who've sacrificed so much for our country - as often as I should. Nonetheless, I am grateful - hopefully more grateful than I was as a child when I first learned about this part of my family history. The freedoms these legions have secured for us are themselves legion, including the freedom to work on a documentary about an old radio show of all things (even if I don't have as much free time to devote to it as I'd like).
