Writing Prompt: Remembering Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day in the United States.  While it informally marks the start of summer and vacation, it has a most important significance.  It is a day for remembering all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coastguard personnel that died in the service of our country.  In ordinary times, we would have ceremonies honoring fallen veterans at various war memorials and community centers all across the country.  Each life cut short in national service represents a family interrupted, foregone, or destroyed.  It's an important day.

For today's writing prompt, write a short story about --

war and/or its aftermath.
