Most of us will spend today with friends and family over bbq and large amounts of fermented hops will be consumed. But let us not forget the reason for this holiday. This post goes out to all those men and women who serve to protect this country and its interests, regardless of personal bias or creed. And to those who died serving their country. I have a story which may bring some of us down to earth. Its not sad or tragic or heroic. A few months ago WCC received a large order from a USMC soldier who was being redeployed to a forward operating base in Afghanistan, he wanted to be able to play while off duty. Even on the front lines the members of the 40k and fantasy community continue to enjoy the simple pleasures of this game. It takes all kinds to build a community from the soldier on his 3rd or fourth tour, to the guy from accounting. So this memorial day raise your glass for the men and women of the US armed services.
