Sunday May 29,2022 The Origins of Memorial Day Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans - the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) - established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared it should be May 30. It is believed the date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. for full notes: https://www.cgtruth.org/index.php?proc=msg&sf=vw&tid=2632

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 5-20-22. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of May 23 and May 30, 2022.  This episode, marking the Memorial Day holiday observed this year on May 30, repeats an episode first done in 2015. MUSIC – ~17 sec – instrumental. That tune, composed during the U.S. Civil War, sets the stage for a water-related exploration of the origin of Memorial Day.  Have a listen to the music for about 35 more seconds. MUSIC – ~35 sec – instrumental. You've been listening to a version of “All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight,” recorded by Chloe Benner and Stewart Scales.  The tune was composed in 1863 by John Hill Hewitt.  The title, and the lyrics associated with the tune, are from “The Picket Guard,” a poem by Ethel Lynn Beers, published in 1861.  The poem relates the loneliness, homesickness, and then sudden death of a rank-and-file soldier patrolling the dark, wooded, and deceptively quiet Potomac riverbank.  As a similar tragic fate befell tens of thousands of Civil War soldiers along rivers, ridges, and battle lines in Virginia and elsewhere, surviving family and friends began honoring fallen soldiers by decorating their graves with flowers, especially during spring.  The practice grew across both North and South, eventually becoming a spring tradition known as “Decoration Day.” On May 5, 1868, Gen. John Logan called for Decoration Day to be an annual, national holiday on May 30, and the first national ceremony was held that year in Arlington National Cemetery, near the banks of the Potomac.  After World War I, the annual observance began to include honoring those who had died in all U.S. military conflicts.  In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day an official national holiday, to occur on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day invokes very personal and local expressions of honor and remembrance, true to the holiday's origin of individuals decorating Civil War graves with flowers.  In that spirit, we close this tribute to Memorial Day with about 25 seconds of “Flowers of the Forest,” by No Strings Attached, from their 2002 album, “Old Friend's Waltz.” MUSIC – ~26 sec – instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this episode.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic issued General Order Number 11 designating May 30 as a memorial day ‘for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land.' “The first national celebration of the holiday took place May 30, 1868, at Arlington National Cemetery, where both Confederate and Union soldiers were buried.  Originally known as Decoration Day, at the turn of the century it was designated as Memorial Day.  In many American towns, the day is celebrated with a parade. “Southern women decorated the graves of soldiers even before the Civil War's end.  Records show that by 1865, Mississippi, Virginia, and South Carolina all had precedents for Memorial Day.  Songs in the Duke University collection Historic American Sheet Music include hymns published in the South such as these two from 1867: ‘Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping,' dedicated to ‘The Ladies of the South Who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead,' and ‘Memorial Flowers,' dedicated ‘To the Memory of Our Dead Heroes.' “When a women's memorial association in Columbus, Mississippi, decorated the graves of both Confederate and Union soldiers on April 25, 1866, this act of generosity and reconciliation prompted an editorial piece, published by Horace Greeley's New York Tribune, and a poem by Francis Miles Finch, ‘The Blue and the Grey,' published in the Atlantic Monthly.  The practice of strewing flowers on soldiers' graves soon became popular throughout the reunited nation. “President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed Waterloo, New York, as the ‘Birthplace of Memorial Day,' because it began a formal observance on May 5, 1866.  However, Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, also claims to have held the first observance, based on an observance dating back to October 1864.  Indeed, many other towns also lay claim to being the first to hold an observance. “In 1971, federal law changed the observance of the holiday to the last Monday in May and extended the honor to all soldiers who died in American wars.  A few states continue to celebrate Memorial Day on May 30. “Today, national observance of the holiday still takes place at Arlington National Cemetery with the placing of a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the decoration of each grave with a small American flag.  Protocol for flying the American flag on Memorial Day includes raising it quickly to the top of the pole at sunrise, immediately lowering it to half-staff until noon, and displaying it at full staff from noon until sunset. … “Many veterans of the Vietnam War, and relatives and friends of those who fought in that conflict, make a pilgrimage over Memorial Day weekend to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., where they pay their respects to another generation of fallen soldiers.” SOURCES USED FOR AUDIO AND OFFERING MORE INFORMATION On the History of Memorial Day Library of Congress, “Today in History—May 30/Memorial Day,” online at https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/may-30/.

We Remember Our Veterans Background: Wartime veterans or their surviving spouses (or other dependents) may qualify for the Improved Pension to help them with their expenses. This pension is increased for those who are Homebound or qualify for the Aid & Attendance benefit. Topic: During May we celebrate our fallen war heroes on Memorial Day (which became a national holiday in 1971). This year it falls on Monday, May 31st. Let's take a moment to thank our heroes and make sure they know they may be entitled to the non-service connected pension. Issue: Let's make sure our non-service connected veterans, have the money to help pay for care whether at home or in a facility of their choosing. • Memorial Day: o Honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military dates back to shortly after the Civil War. During this time, various towns and cities paid spring tributes to fallen soldiers. o 1968, General John A. Logan called for Decoration Day - a nationwide day of remembrance for those who had fallen during the Civil War. o Later, Decoration Day evolved to include honoring those who had served during all of our wars. o Renamed Memorial Day in 1971 when it became an official federal holiday. o Memorial Day traditions vary from visiting the resting place of our heroes, parades, picnics and a National Moment of Remembrance at 3:00pm local time. • Difference between service-connected disabilities & nonservice connected disabilities. o Most Veterans are aware that they could be entitled to compensation for service-connected disabilities o Many Veterans are not aware of the nonservice connected pension they (or their dependents and surviving spouses) may qualify for.  This basic pension is called the Improved Pension, with additional benefits for those who are homebound or who qualify for aid and attendance benefits. • Do not have to be ‘in the VA System' • Can qualify even if denied for other benefits in the past • Qualifications can be confusing, generally a veteran should qualify: o Served active duty at least 90 days but at least 1 day during wartime but more if served after 1980) o Not a dishonorable discharge

A1C is an easy way to diagnose and monitor diabetes, use and limitations of A1C are discussed with Dr Rodriguez. Vaginal metformin is mentioned as an anecdote which has not been proven to work we remembered Memorial Day. Introduction: Vaginal Metformin.  By Hasaney Sin, MD, and Hector Arreaza, MD.Today is May 31, 2021.  There’s a saying that I came across on social media that has always spoken to me which I find relevant to our vocation. “The more I learn, the more I find out I don’t know”. So comes the joys (and challenges) of our chosen career. Case in point, have you ever heard of vaginal metformin? Neither have I, until today. There was a randomized clinical trial plan in 2013 at Assuit University in Egypt studying the effectiveness of vaginal metformin for the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). As primary care providers, we are very aware of the gastrointestinal side effects of metformin when taken PO. This sometimes prevents compliance with metformin. The study at Assuit University was to study the effectiveness of metformin when given vaginally in the effectiveness of treating PCOS, while also decreasing the undesirable side effects of metformin when given PO in hopes of also ultimately improving adherence. Unfortunately, the study was planned to be finished in 2014, but no results have been published thus far[1]. Stay tuned in case there is any update.Arreaza: I had to do a search because I was very curious too. There is at least one occurrence when vaginal metformin was mentioned, at least in English. It was in an online forum where a doctor recommended vaginal metformin for PCOS to a patient. This has not been evaluated or approved by any organization, so I would not recommend it. You know what would be great? Metformin patches! There you have a business idea guys: The Metfo-patch®. This is Rio Bravo qWeek, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California. Our program is affiliated with UCLA, and it’s sponsored by Clinica Sierra Vista, Let Us Be Your Healthcare Home. Introduction: Memorial Day. Written by Valerie Civelli, MD, read by Steven Saito, MD, and Hector Arreaza, MDWhat is Memorial Day? Memorial Day is an American holiday at the end of May to honor the men and women who died while serving in the US military. It has great historical meaning to Americans. It originated from the Civil War which claimed more lives than any other conflict in US history. Civil war ended in 1865.   A fun fact to know, is that Memorial Day, was originally called “Decoration Day”.  It was 3-years after the Civil war ended, May 5, 1868, that “Decoration Day” was declared as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of those lost in war.  Graves were adorned with flowers and their lives celebrated.  Maj. Gen. John A. Logan then declared that “Decoration Day” should be observed on May 30th. It is believed that this date was chosen because flowers would be in full bloom across the country. The “birthplace” of “Memorial Day” was recognized as coming from Waterloo, New York, because Waterloo was the first to use this term to expand honor and recognition of all US fallen soldiers of war from the Civil War and from World War I. In 1971, “Memorial Day” was officially declared a national federal holiday: The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence, to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. If you value your freedom wherever you are, this Memorial Day at 3:00 p.m., pause for a minute to recognize all of our military men and women, both past and present who served and continue to serve our country. We honor every soldier who lost his or her life in any war against America. You are the reason for our freedoms.  You gave the ultimate sacrifice, and we do not take this for granted. To all military members who have died at war, we appreciate the privileges we have today because of you. We honor the costly price at which it came.  We remember you. We honor you. We sincerely thank you. Happy Memorial Day everyone! ___________________________A1C.By Hector Arreaza, MD, and Yodaisy Rodriguez, MD.   Definition. Glycated hemoglobin (glycohemoglobin, hemoglobin A1c, or just A1c) is a form of hemoglobin that is chemically linked to a sugar. Glucose spontaneously bind with hemoglobin, when present in the bloodstream of humans.A1C refers to the percentage of glycosylation of the hemoglobin A1C chain and correlates with the average blood glucose levels over the previous 2-3 months from the slow turnover of red blood cells in the body. A RBC lives 120 days.History of A1C. Huisman and Meyering separated glycohemglobin for the first time in 1958. A1c for monitoring the degree of control of glucose metabolism in diabetic patients was proposed in 1976 by Anthony Cerami, Ronald Koenig and coworkers.A1C was first included in the ADA guidelines as a diagnostic test for diabetes in 2010. Prior to that random glucose or fasting plasma glucose were used for diagnosis.For diagnosis of diabetes, A1C testing should be done by a technique certified by the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program and consistent with the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial reference assay.A1C levels. A1C 6.5% is diabetes.Of note, other criteria for diagnosing diabetes: Fasting plasma glucose >126 mg/dL, 2-hour plasma glucose > 200, random glucose >200 plus classic symptoms.In patients with prediabetes, A1C should be tested yearly.The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has recommended glycated hemoglobin testing (HbA1c) twice a year for patients with stable glycemia, and quarterly for patients with poor glucose control. Use ADA guidelines to assess targets.Point-of-care A1C (POC A1C): POC is not recommended for screening or diagnosis but it is good for monitoring.A1C limitations.There are some limitations to A1C testing, and an incomplete correlation between A1C level and average glucose level in certain individuals.Nonglycemic Factors That May Interfere with A1C MeasurementFalsely lower A1C: Acute blood loss, Chronic liver disease, Hemolytic anemias, Patients receiving antiretroviral treatment for human immunodeficiency virus, Pregnancy, Vitamins E and C. Patients being treated for iron, B12 or folate deficiency, EPO, chronic hemolysis (thalassemia). Lower or elevate A1C: Hemoglobinopathies or hemoglobin variants, Malnutrition Falsely elevate A1C: Aplastic anemias, Hyperbilirubinemia, Hypertriglyceridemia, Iron deficiency anemias, Renal failure, Splenectomy.For example, when RBCs have a short life, like in acute bleeding, the A1C is falsely low. On the other hand, when RBCs live longer (history of splenectomy and aplastic anemias) the A1C is falsely elevated. It’s a good idea to do CBC with A1C.Ethnic groups: Hemoglobinopathies or hemoglobin variants can change A1C levels and may be more prevalent among certain racial and ethnic groups. A1C tends to be higher in some races/ethnic groups: AA, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans.Other A1C limitations: It gives you an average, patient may be experiencing hypoglycemia alternated with hyperglycemia and result in normal A1C. Screening for diabetes.ADA: Screen for diabetes or prediabetes all asymptomatic adults, according to the ADA, who have overweight or obesity with one or more risk factor (first degree relative with diabetes, high risk race or ethnic group, history of CVD, hypertension, dyslipidemia, PCOS, physical inactivity, severe obesity, acanthosis nigricans), patients with prediabetes (every year), women with GDM (every 3 years), all other patients after 45 years of age. If results are normal, test every 3 years, patients with HIV.USPSTF: Adults aged 40 to 70 years who are overweight or obese. The USPSTF recommends screening for abnormal blood glucose as part of cardiovascular risk assessment in adults aged 40 to 70 years who are overweight or obese. (Draft: Asymptomatic adults ages 35 to 70 years who are overweight or obese) This is a Grade B recommendation. Clinicians should offer or refer patients with abnormal blood glucose to intensive behavioral counseling interventions to promote a healthful diet and physical activity. The USPSTF recommends screening for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in asymptomatic pregnant women after 24 weeks of gestation. This is a Grade B recommendation.Grade I recommendation (insufficient evidence): Asymptomatic pregnant women, Before 24 Weeks of Gestation. The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to screen for GDM in asymptomatic pregnant women before 24 weeks of gestation.A1C Targets.A1C goals can range from 6.5% to 8%. Target is individualized based on life expectancy, disease duration, presence of complications, CVD risk factors, comorbid conditions and risks for severe hypoglycemia. Sometimes your goal can be independent of A1C, for example, your goal can be to avoid complications. As a fun fact, A1C is not used in veterinary medicine.Conclusion.By Hector Arreaza, MD. Now we conclude our episode number 54 “A1C”, three characters that may not mean much for most people but for patients with diabetes, it is a very important number to remember. Remember to check the A1C in all your patients with poor control of diabetes every 3 months, or every 6 months in patients with good control. A1C has its limitations but it certainly is the best way to assess your patients’ glycemic control. We started this episode by giving you a random report about vaginal metformin, the study was unfinished, and we also reminded you of the importance of remembering our heroes during Memorial Day. Even without trying, every night you go to bed being a little wiser.Thanks for listening to Rio Bravo qWeek.

Monday Moment In HistoryThe History of Memorial DayDid you know? Each year on Memorial Day a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.It is unclear where exactly this tradition originated; numerous different communities may have independently initiated the memorial gatherings. And some records show that one of the earliest Memorial Day commemorations was organized by a group of formerly enslaved people in Charleston, South Carolina less than a month after the Confederacy surrendered in 1865. Nevertheless, in 1966 the federal government declared Waterloo, New York, the official birthplace of Memorial Day.Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2021 will occur on Monday, May 31. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.Early Observances of Memorial DayThe Civil War, which ended in the spring of 1865, claimed more lives than any conflict in U.S. history and required the establishment of the country's first national cemeteries.By the late 1860s, Americans in various towns and cities had begun holding springtime tributes to these countless fallen soldiers, decorating their graves with flowers and reciting prayers.Decoration DayOn May 5, 1868, General John A. Logan, leader of an organization for Northern Civil War veterans, called for a nationwide day of remembrance later that month. “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed.The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn't the anniversary of any particular battle.History of Memorial DayMemorial Day, as Decoration Day gradually came to be known, originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. But during World War I the United States found itself embroiled in another major conflict, and the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all wars, including World War II, The Vietnam War, The Korean War and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.Taken from www.history.com

14 June 2020 The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ NOTE: Due to the Covid19 / Coronavirus Emergency the Archdiocese of New York has cancelled all public Masses for an indefinite period. The homily attached hereto was given on 18 June 2017, Corpus Christi, using the same Readings as for today, 14 June 2020. Note also that 18 June 2017 was Father’s Day in the United States. In 2020, Father’s Day in the United States is next Sunday 21 June 2020. John 6:51-58 + Homily 14 Minutes 28 Seconds Link to the Readings: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/061420.cfm (New American Bible, Revised Edition) From the parish bulletin of Sunday 14 June 2020:   Robert Gould Shaw was born into an abolitionist Unitarian family in Boston in 1837. When he was ten, they settled on Staten Island. An uncle who became a Catholic priest paid for his tuition at what is now the Fordham Preparatory School. As a somewhat distracted student, he never completed his studies (who does?) but he was tutored in Italy and Germany and studied at Harvard. During the Civil War he was eventually promoted to Colonel and, following the Emancipation Proclamation, he led New England’s first all-black military unit, the 54th Regiment.  Shaw insisted on equal pay and opposed any form of discrimination. Two of his soldiers were sons of Frederick Douglas.    In 1863, storming Fort Wagner in South Carolina, Colonel Shaw led his regiment, which suffered heavy losses while he died from several wounds defending the nation and racial justice. Saint-Gaudens sculpted a bronze relief of Shaw and his troops, which was dedicated across from the Massachusetts State House 123 years ago on May 31. Just weeks ago, three million dollars were designated to restore it, but ironically on May 31, a mob claiming to be defenders of human dignity, defaced with obscenities this tribute to valiant African-Americans.    Rioters also gathered in our nation’s capital in Logan Circle, by another irony named for a Civil War general, John A. Logan, who said: “Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided republic.” But many in our latest generation have not merely forgotten that cost, they were never taught it in the first place.    The valor of the 54th Regiment was depicted in the 1989 film “Glory.” Yet recent mobs have behaved more like the brawlers in old Western movies, for whom one man attacking another becomes a cue for everyone to rise and wreck the whole saloon. Riots broke out in other cities and spread abroad. Perceived manipulation of the ignorant by sinister plotters whose Orwellian strategy is to call their fascism anti-fascist, is no excuse for their obliviousness to the consequences of moral confusion.    In 452, Pope Leo the Great saved Rome from Attila the Hun and, in a double whammy three years later, he confronted Genseric the Vandal. He faced both with the serenity of virtue and the bravery of charity, bending his knee before neither because he knelt only to God.     Pope Leo preached: “Christian, remember your dignity, and now that you share in God’s own nature, do not return by sin to your former base condition. Bear in mind who is your head and of whose body you are a member. Do not forget that you have been rescued from the power of darkness and brought into the light of God’s kingdom.”

As we approach Memorial Day, our warm thoughts may go down memory lane and remember many of the patriotic holidays of past years that have brought joy into our lives. For many, Memorial day is the day of vacation, a time to travel, and perhaps spend time with family and friends, it is also a time to appreciate family and decorate the graves of our loved ones. For many years, this annual date was known as Decoration Day. It was early in May of 1868 that General John A. Logan, then the commander in chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, officially designated the 30th of May, as a day for decorating the graves of the comrades who died in defense of their country. Decoration Day then acquired its present, and more symbolical meaning of Memorial Day.Have you ever wondered how Memorial Day began? It was Mrs. Mary Cotton Redpath who noticed many uncapped soldier graves in Charleston, South Carolina, and appealed to her friends to remedy this situation. It was on May 30, 1865 that scores of interested persons marked these neglected graves and decorated them with myrtle, yellow roses, and other dainty blossoms.Today, on Memorial Day, millions of American people visit the cemeteries throughout the land and decorate the graves of their noble dead, who have fought and died to defend the nation they left. This day is also observed by Europeans who gave honor to the thousands of Americans who live buried in the soil far from their homeland.As we observe from Memorial Day in 1993, may it be a day of reflection, we look back so that we can better look ahead. When we recall the sacrifices of our loved ones in time of war, whether at home or abroad. We soften our hearts, increase our energies to renew a determination to walk in the path of peace. Let this patriotic and solemn day become merely a day on which we reflect upon the loss and departure of loved ones. Let us consider what appreciation we need to show for the sacrifices they have made for us as we decorate the graves with flags and flowers. May it proclaim to the world that with loving affection, we remember our loved ones and may we be thankful for the sacrifices they have made. As we travel down that memory lane, this coming Memorial Day may we reflect on the real meaning of this very special day of the year.A warm thought for the week: Inner beauty comes from a gentle and quiet spirit.Have a week filled with warm thoughts and memories!Warm Thoughts From the Little Home on the Prairie Over a Cup of Tea by Luetta G.

  Memorial Day Chrysanthemums are  now on sale at my local grocery store. It seems like the day after Mother’s Day, retailers stock their shelves with potted plants or, silk and plastic flowers and wreaths suitable for placing on the graves of loved ones. But the original meaning of the holiday, to honor those American men and women who died during combat.has become somewhat lost over the years. The holiday, was established in 1866 following the Civil War, when General John A. Logan, commander in chief of the Grand Army of the Republic,  called for a holiday commemorating fallen soldiers to be observed every May 30. It was first known as Decoration Day and was set aside to remember both Union and Confederate soldiers alike. Soldiers would decorate the graves of their fallen comrades with flowers, flags and wreaths. Memorial Day became the official title in the 1880’s, but didn’t legally become Memorial Day until 1967, when Lyndon B. Johnson was President of the United States.   In 1971,  Memorial Day was moved to the last Monday of May, so that we could have a long weekend. The Uniform Monday Holiday Act since then has also applied to our national observances of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day, Labor Day and Columbus Day, but not Veteran’s Day, which will always be observed on November 11th. As a side note, it was originally called Armistice Day and honored the official end of World War 1 in 1918.   After World War I, Memorial Day commemorations honored not just the Civil War dead but soldiers who had died in all American conflicts. At the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington, Virginia, the President or Vice President of the United States gives a speech honoring the contributions of the dead and lay a wreath. Each year the 3rd U.S. Infantry places a small American flag before the gravestones and niches of service members buried at Arlington National Cemetary (and the U.S. Soldier’s and Airmen’s Home National Cemetery) just before Memorial Day weekend. The soldiers put flags in front of more than 260,000 gravestones and about 7,300 niches at Arlington. (Another 13,500 flags are placed at the Soldier’s and Airmen’s Cemetery.) It takes them about three hours to place them all, and then they stay at Arlington during the Memorial Day weekend to make sure the flags remain at each gravestone. I admire this  respectful and honorable practice. When I was a kid growing up in the northern New Mexico community of Taos, I attended Taos Elementary School. Physical Education, PE  Day came once a week, and since the school didn’t have it’s own gymnasium, my class would walk to the Bataan National Guard Armory and use the gym there. The enormous olive green army vehicles parked in the connecting garage  fascinated me. It would be several decades later while interviewing my mom  about her childhood and extended family that I learned about our two cousins who died while serving during World War 2. She mentioned that  cousin Moises Miera died as a prisoner during the Bataan Death march, and that another cousin, Manuel Jaime Garcia had died a few weeks after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and was listed as missing in action. My interview with her was more than 20 years ago. It took me a few more years to make the connection that the National Guard Armory, which later was sold to the town of Taos and made into a convention center, was named after the soldiers of the 200th Coast Artillery Battery H of the New Mexico National Guard who were deployed to the Phillipines in 1941 a few months before the Japanese bombs flew into the Pearl Harbor naval base on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. They were among the first Americans to engage in combat with the Japanese armed forces. I hadn’t studied the inscriptions below the memorial cross that had stood in the middle of the Taos Plaza since 1960, made possible by private donations through the War Mothers organization.

Tonight we celebrate Memorial Day and the legacy of the Irishman that led the cause to create it. General John A. Logan was a County Monaghan man who fought in the Mexican-American War, the Battle of Bull Run, and in the rotundas of the Illinois AND United States Senate. His proudest moment was issuing General Order No. 11, which established an annual day for the purpose of strewing flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of the comrades who died in defense of their country. Tune in as Tim and Mike pay tribute to those who have fallen with music from The Fureys, Bruce Springsteen, The Elders, and Kevin Flynn & The Avondale Ramblers. Thank you to all that have served and continue to serve in the Armed Forces. Memorial Day also means Irish Fest at Chicago Gaelic Park and the boys preview their 30th annual festival with songs from the bands you'll see this weekend including Chicago Reel, Screaming Orphans and The Fenians. Also featuring music from Rory Gallagher and The Gloaming (catch Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill this Saturday at the Old Town School of Folk Music.) Join us every Wednesday from 8PM to 9 PM on WSBC 1240 AM and check out the podcast at www.windycityirishradio.com
