Let me get this straight ... you think that having now completed three college degrees on Uncle Sam's dime, being eligible for a fixed-benefit pension and 100% medical for life at age 42, and getting 1/3 of my pay in the form of various tax-free allowances, I should only be honored by *two* federal holidays annually? Seriously, Veterans Day is a byproduct of WWI just as Memorial Day is a by product of the Grand Army of the Republic's lobbying efforts after the Civil War. So we gov'ment employees get two days off instead of one. For what its worth, I never got Memorial Day off when I was in school in Georgia - here in New England, its almost as big a deal as July 4th.
heh...Hey, I'm all for days off!
