Happy Memorial Day Weekend from Rocks Off... and Bob Dylan

Rocks Off is going to go ahead and sign off a little early today - trust us, we're as anxious to get started on the three-day weekend as you are. Please do come back Monday, though, while you're barbecuing (or whatever) - we've got all sorts of holiday musical content for you, including a look at famous musicians who served in each of the four U.S. military branches, a Memorial Day playlist and some thoughts by one of our senior columnists who's never known a time without war.

We'll leave you with some pointed wisdom from Master Bob circa 1979's Slow Train Coming, which fits just as well if you're the ranking officer on your military base or have never set foot near a recruitment office in your life. Have a great, safe weekend!
