11 November 1839. We all know the story, but it’s worth retelling. And it’s worth knowing what became of Cadet Strange.

Ready in every time of deepest peril.

And, of course, greetings and salutations on this, Veterans’ Day. There are many who read this blog who have done their bit, and a few who have done far more than their bit.

(Did you know that General George S. Patton was born on 11 November?? It’s true. Look it up. I don’t know why that escaped my notice ’til now, but thanks to Rawles for pointing it out.)
