Truly Blippin' Marvelous

Memorial Day

       Explore the history of Decoration Day and the later establishment of Memorial Day.  

       There is a scene in The Best Years of Our Lives  in which Sgt. Al Stephenson (Fredric March) gives his son mementos from his service in the Pacific: a katana and a good luck flag or hinomaru yosegaki.  This last Sunday Morning  programme included a piece about the return of some of these flags to Japanese families with the help of the Obon Society.  Very touching.

       ART is the subject of this week's monoMonday challenge (MM123) set by Nickimags.  But all I came up with was American Repertory Theatre.
