This weekend I’m thinking of Ed Rudnicki, my uncle. Uncle Ed flew 23 missions in WW II, later serving in Korea and Ft. Sheridan’s 5th Army Intelligence before retiring as a Lt Colonel . We proudly attended his military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery, and we’ve visited his grave several times since 1976.
Bob Woodruff is spearheading a charity to support the troops – ReMind.org. ReMIND.org is ensuring our heroes return home with the assistance they need to successfully integrate back into society. Tweet to Remind is trying to get $ 1.65MM – one dollar for every serviceman who has served since 9/11. It’s my pleasure to honor Uncle Ed by contributing to this worthy cause.
I particularly enjoyed the article by James Key in USA Today about his service at Arlington Cemetery. Check it out!
In addition to military Memorial Day activities, Bike the Drive is happening Sunday morning. It’s one of my favorite Chicago activities!
Whatever you do this weekend, have a very happy Memorial Day!
