In memoriam

It’s Memorial Day, the day set aside in the United States to honor members of the armed forces who died in the line of duty. In observance of the day, I recommend that you read Gerard Van der Leun’s excellent essay “The Name in the Stone“.
If you wish, you can also read “Remember”, an article I wrote two years ago. (The occasion was actually Veterans Day, but it has considerable relevance to Memorial Day as well.)
