(and yes, since people have asked - this does mean that your deadline to get in your Spirit votes has been extended as well)
As far as I know veterans have nothing to do with the decision! You never know though, maybe they did, those veterans can be sneaky!
So happy Memorial Day for some of you - and happy Monday for others! (it may be another day out there in "foreignland", so happy whatever that is too.)
Hope you are having a fantastic day, regardless of what the day is for you! :D
