Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Hug a Vet and back up their Macs or PCs.

It’s Memorial Day Weekend. While you listen to Jack-FM’s no-repeat weekend and grille up sausages and burgers, take a moment to remember just why we remember this day. This is to remember all the vets, past and present, who have served our country. Some made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. Others have sacrificed their limbs or cannot bear to hear fireworks without thinking of enemy mortar attacks.

I have a fraternity brother who went into the Army in the 1980s. He served in Germany and Korea. Every day he hoped to get up to a boring routine, rather than the thud of artillery marking the beginning of World War III or the Second Korean War. He came home in one whole piece. Thank God we can disagree in health.

We must not forget their service. And they must not forget to record it for us. So-and this is getting off on a tangent-make sure the vets you know back up their computers. Whether it’s to a network server or just a USB flash drive; don’t let someone’s memoirs or novel disappear with a crashed hard drive.

If you go to Costco today or tomorrow for a 50-pack of frozen burgers and plenty of buns, make sure to include blister-packed backup drives if needed.
