Getting into the Memorial Day spirit

I'm worried that there may be some sort of military exercises going on at my kids' school today. I saw a little boy walking into the building today wearing a complete camouflage ensemble -- not just pants, but shirt, cap, boots, even a camouflage backpack. He was ready for anything, that kid. Now, maybe his family believes in supporting the troops, and encourages their son to make sartorial choices that conform to their strong pro-military leanings. Or maybe they're rolling their eyes when he self-assembles the G.I. Joe look; maybe he's going through a phase. But really -- a camouflage backpack? Maybe school's more of a jungle than I thought.
