Letter: The salute

To the Editors:
The Memorial concluded under blue sky and bright sun. Behind me a bit to my left, an attentive Boy Scout stood at times at attention with “thumbs on seams” during the ceremony.  I offered him my hand and thanks for his participation. We shook hands. He immediately came to attention and saluted me. I returned his salute. Simply a Memorial Day I will not forget.
