  • Memorial Day: Remember the Dead, Support the Living

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on May 29th, 2006 (All posts by )

    I am asking our readers to support the troops in some concrete way this Memorial Day.

    I had this post last year, and I got several supportive emails, and at least one person matched my donation, so I am repeating the effort in 2006.

    This year I have donated $1,000 to Wounded Warriors.

    I hope others will match me, or make a generous gift of some greater or lesser size to this cause, or for example to one of the good causes listed on this page.

    God Bless America.

    Happy Memorial Day.

      I don’t have any cash to spare at the moment — poor student working for experience this summer — but I am going to GIVE BLOOD at the American Red Cross this afternoon. My chapter is open today and they are at less than half a day’s supply of O neg and about half a day’s supply of A neg.

      Giving blood is a minor inconvenience for most people but it saves lives every day.

      Thanks for the memorial day thoughts and reminders.
