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!
