Although I've already shared some coverage that aligns with Veteran's Day, A Prairie Home Companion's Web Producer (and my cube neighbor) Brett Baldwin dropped me an intriguing note:

"In The News from Lake Wobegon this week -- at about 3 minutes in -- GK starts talking about the living being obliged to carry on the wars of the dead, and how that may not really be true. It's moving, in the end, really sums up what Veteran's day is about: respecting those who served, for what they have been through is unimaginable."
