To All Soldiers, Past And Present....
I had hoped to create my very first slideshow in tribute to the fallen and still-standing amongst you on Memorial Day, but was unable to do so due to a nasty little surprise known as "DRM" -- Digital Rights Management.
Basically, I bought a download of a beautiful piece of music by Bobby McFerrin...his gorgeous rendition of "The 23rd Psalm", which he dedicated to his mother.
Then, when I tried to import the song into Windows Movie Maker to start the project...WHAM! The import was denied, thanks to a little piece of code somewhere in the clip which is apparently designed to limit how I can use the clip....
AFTER I've already paid for it. *Sigh*
Oh, well. Enough with the useless bitching. It's not getting me anywhere.
Sorry, folks. I'll get it right next time.
As a token of good faith, I hereby present a ready-made collage accompanied by another song that haunts me...considering where we buried my father about six years ago.
Keep a box of Kleenex handy, friends...this one just plain HURTS.

Well done, Cadet. Keep up the good work.
