The Sun-Times and its staff wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day!

Last Christmas, Marie McGee of Higden took a moment and reflected on the rare scene at her table.  All three gentlemen present were U.S. Navy veterans from World War II.  With the passing of that generation, she realized she might not have that experience again, so she wanted to share the moment with our readers in honor of this upcoming Memorial Day.  Seated from left to right are R.B Watson of Higden (who passed in January), Martin Holt of Higden, and John Riggs of Quitman.  The Sun-Times and its staff would like to wish all of our readers a very safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
