    Mr. Kiekow
    When you are sent to cover the MEMORIAL DAY REMEMBERANCE at JEFFERSON BARRACKS the proper attire is a COAT AND TIE.
    My guess is you did not serve in the military.
    And YES I did.

    The Ribfest is a disgraceful abuse of Soldiers Memorial-continued ‘sell out’ of the Memorial by the City for dollars, and to sell as much beer and food as possible within the Memorial Day weekend. This is your ‘story’, news people. . And the USO was paid off to keep their mouths shut. Confirm this is the first year since 1937 there has been no ceremony at Soldiers Memorial.
