Happy Memorial Day 2010!
I never served, but by name I am very much connected. My uncle, 2nd Lieutenant 390 AAF Bomb GP, Leonard Albert Gallant, was lost over Germany April 12, 1944 in the Good War. I never met him, but I carry on his memory with my middle name. And as I've written before, my first name is derived from a general my Dad served under near Anzio. The poem is, of course, the quite famous "In Flanders Fields" by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army.
