I think of lost team-mates on this solemn day. Two in particular: Master Sergeant David Boltz and Chief Warrant Officer James O’Callaghan. Great soldiers, great men and the best team-mates one can hope for.

Take a moment on this holiday to spare some thoughts for those who served and died because of that service

Dave is top left. Jim is bottom right.

For holiday reading:

New York Minute is Free Today through 1 June featuring a fictional veteran, Will Kane.

Burners, which I believe is one of my most interesting books, is free through 2 June.

Stay safe, enjoy the day and look forward to summer!
