I went to my town’s Veteran’s Day ritual today at the local VFW. The closing prayer, given extempore by the VFW’s chaplain, a Veteran I believe of the Vietnam War was powerfully moving. I remembered most of it, which I give here.

“Our greatest responsibility is to be good ancestors.”   (Jonas Salk)”
