Happy Memorial Day in the US! This month we have visited both Pearl Harbor on Oahu and the site of Camp Tarawa on the Big Island, where 50,000 Marines were stationed in WW2. Though Moon samples are precious, we should salute another previous resource, our World War 2 veterans. Australia and other Pacific nations also contributed citizens to the struggle. The city of Townsville in Queensland was also a base for US Marines. As we continually grapple with totalitarianism and other "dark energies," the triumphs of WW2 veterans show that light will always win.
