“We have, what, 340 million guns in this country?” “You’re not getting rid of them. They’re not going away.” - Marie Zare, speaking at CPAC

In Memory of the "Boys of our Navy."

Seven Minneapolis sailors, serving in the U.S. Navy during WW I, lost their lives in this War to End All Wars. I came across this tribute to the "Boys in Our Navy" earlier this week when I was Looping the Lakes on my bike.

Tucked in a flower bed and in the shadow of Lake Calhoun, there's a powerfully moving plaque in memory of these seamen.  Names of the fallen are listed - wish there had been room on the bronze plate to tell a bit of a stroy about "Our Boys."

It's been 100 years since the War's end.  I suspect our patriots fought bravely, and believed in the rightness of their mission.  

Wonder how they'd feel about the powder keg world we live in now?
