OPINION
By ART CALLAHAM | May 26, 2013
This is a reprise (with some minor changes) of a column I wrote for Memorial Day 2011. It is not my best column, nor is it my worst. What it is, however, is a statement of my continuing and unfaltering support for those who protect our nation and our freedoms. I offer these words, once again, as a tribute to those men and women.  According to my records, the original was the 33rd column I had written for The Herald-Mail. Thirty-three is a lucky number to some, and it reminds me of a beer many of us drank while serving in Vietnam - Ba Moui Ba, or Bierre 33 as the French would say. These memories of luck and beer are relevant to me and many “brothers and sisters in arms” as today is part of a Memorial Day weekend.
