When I put out the call for our readers to share their stories about beloved veterans on this Memorial Day, I had no idea what to expect.
And what an amazing surprise it turned out to be.
In one of those coincidences that would prompt my wife to remind me that there are no coincidences, I received precisely 16 posts, one for every half hour of the work day. The essays were alternatively touching, funny, sentimental, inspiring and emotional.
Thanks to all of you who shared your stories with The Recovering Politician today. You made my Memorial Day extra special. As I hope it was for our readers as well.
Tomorrow we return to our usual fare. Thanks for joining us today.
