Tatum: Memorial Day reflections -- Reprise
Placeholder Image
I have a picture -- probably my favorite of my parents -- which sits on my desk in my office at home. It was taken circa 1960, give or take a year or two, on the evening of the West Point Founder’s Day ball. My parents and their best friends -- known to us sand blowers as “Uncle Ed and Auntie Fran” -- are posing for the camera prior to the evening’s soirée.
