Good morning ...
Yep, it's the first of two MEMORIAL DAY cartoons for today — this being the only time of the year when your 'toonist gets totally serious [yep, it's possible!].
That said, I really like the fact that the kid in the toon has such a simple, albeit profound, question for his Dad. There's an innocence involved that transcends the horrific nature of war. I'll bet the combat vets thereabouts will recognize it.
You'll find this cartoon & 13 other Memorial Day toons in my MEMORIAL DAY Category at:
Plus, there's a generic holiday cartoon ["5-DAY WEEKEND"] that I'm adding to each of the fair-weather Holiday Categories [MEMORIAL DAY, 4th of JULY & LABOR DAY]. Actually, this toon should run well anytime from now to Fall.
The second MEMORIAL DAY cartoon will follow shortly ...
