Drive-in Movies are about a thing of the past,but I'm the projectionist at one of three we still have in Oregon. Actually,we're not open to the public but are an RV park and show for guests only.The park was a drive-in theater at one time, and since the screen was still up, they decided to go with the theme. Normally we don't show movies on Monday, but I will this Memorial day.
I need to check our Library to find a good one.I'm sure I can find a good John Wayne or Eastwood one for the occasion.
I think we also have Saving Private Ryan.
On May 30, 1868, a crowd of 5,000 gathered at Arlington National Cemetery for the first Decoration Day exercises. Before strewing flowers upon the graves of the dead, the crowd listened to an address by James A. Garfield (1831Ė81), then an Ohio congressman who had also served as a major general in the Civil War. In this first of such annual addresses at Arlington National Cemetery, Garfield, who in 1881 would become the 20th president of the United States, sets a standard by explaining what Decoration Day is all about and why it should be commemorated. Later Decoration Day was changed to Memorial Day.
I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!
