Fashion Flash on Memorial DayFashion Flash on  Memorial Day

For most of my young  life,  Memorial Day was  all about  great sales and  grilled ribs.  I was only vaugely aware that it celebrated  the men and women of the armed services. But  as a young wife,   Vietnam  brought the real meaning of Memorial Day  right  to my doorstep. My husband was drafted to serve as a navel doctor.  Classmates lost their young husbands and young  men  came home with  physical and mental wounds that remained for a lifetime. Now I am the grandmother of two boys, and I am even more  aware  of the meaning of Memorial Day. Quite simply I don’t want to these lovely little boys to die on a battlefield.  What can be done to protect  our new generation of young men?
