The Veterans for Peace Memorial Mile -- a reminder of what this weekend is all about

Driving east on Madison's Speedway Road this holiday weekend is a haunting experience. About 5,000 additional tombstones have been added to those in Forest Hill Cemetery. This is the Memorial Mile display put up by Veterans for Peace -- a stark reminder that Memorial Day is about more than celebrating the end of the school year, Bratfest and the beginning of summer vacation season. It's a time to think about those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, those for whom there are no more summers.
