“Was yesterday,” Spence says.

“I know, but today is the holiday, so now I’ll call my dad to thank him for his service in World War 2,” Admin says. “He commanded a sub chaser in the Atlantic.”

“Say hi,” says Spence.

“And thanks to all the veterans. Here’s Churchill’s Their Finest Hour speech:”

‘Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.’

“And from the Pacific – the U.S.S. Indianapolis:”

Welcome Oily the activist dog.
