The three day weekend known as, “I’m getting really f’d up today and I don’t care if I’m hungover tomorrow,” is finally here. Also known as Memorial Day Weekend, it’s a time devoted to remembering the fallen soldiers who died while serving their country. On this day, we celebrate three soldiers who gave their lives for their country and mankind. Without them we could have been ruled by bugs, machines, and even machines flown by alien bugs. When you feel like you’ve had a hard day at your desk job because you had problems printing up a document, realize that could never be as bad as what these fallen soldiers went through. Show some respect, and tip your 40 in their memories.

Lieutenant Jean Rasczak
Lieutenant Rasczak trained and commanded the Roughnecks, a Mobile Infantry unit, who were responsible for capturing the Brain Bug, leader of the Arachnid forces. He lost his arm in the war, then his life, but he did not lose his pride. Hoorah, Lieutenant Rasczk! Hoorah!
Russell, an alcoholic crop duster, a Vietnam veteran, and the father of Miguel, Alicia and Troy, sacrificed his life as he flew his plane into an alien spacecraft’s weapon. This selfless act prevented billions of deaths, and was the turnaround in the Alien/Human War of 1996 that led to a mankind victory. You crop dusted hope into our hearts.
