"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

A few years back Joanne Jacobs posted a tribute to her grandfather on the occasion (scroll down to April 25):
Once again, we come to ANZAC Day, and remember the efforts of those who have fought in wars. I thought this year I'd include a picture of my maternal grandfather, who fought at Gallipoli this day, 89 years ago. Edward Jones was just 20 years old when he was faced with the horrors of war. And for me, that's what today is all about: not glorifying war as some patriotic imperative that defines masculinity or national pride, but a time to give thanks and to remember those who had to face such horror in order to provide their children and their children's children with a better life.
Thanks to you, Grandpa, and to those like you, for being there for us. Lest we forget.
