Happy Memorial Day


By Rick Morris

NOTE: This is our annual Memorial Day tribute from The FDH Lounge.

Veterans have always been heroes to me, people who put a cause greater than themselves ahead of their own well-being. This very visceral account of D-Day from the late hero Charles Durning tells the story in all of its honor and horror.  For anyone dense enough not to understand why flag desecration incites anyone with a shred of decency, sit through this.
