Michael's Dispatches

Memorial Day


Greetings this Memorial Day. I'm spending this important day quietly with friends in Florida. It was with these friends, just over four years ago, that I attended the funeral of our mutual high school buddy. Scott was an ex-Navy SEAL who was murdered along with other contractors in Fallujah in early 2004. We'll spend this day not at a big party, but in quiet remembrance of Scott and so many others who have lost their lives on battlefields around the world.

I'll not do any work today other than three radio interviews. Last week, however, I read the first chapter of "Moment of Truth in Iraq" for the Orlando Sentinel. Please click for the audio, and please remember to thank at least one veteran, or family of a veteran, during the course of the day.

    I agree that this book should be required reading for members of Congress. Would it help them understand what is happening, probably not, but worth a try. I have a signed copy of the book.

Reader support is crucial to this mission. Weekly or monthly recurring ‘subscription’ based support is the best, though all are greatly appreciated.  Many methods are available to keep the work rolling. Click the image for a more info.
