The Greatest Generation

In honor of Memorial Day ( formerly known as Decoration Day) I found an online video from May 2005. Tom Brokaw gives a lecture at the JFK Presidential Library and Museum, discussing his chronicling of the men and women who came of age during the Great Depression and WWII in his book, "The Greatest Generation". It's worth watching even if you haven't read the book. He also discusses his career as news anchor for NBC.

Oh, and if you want to learn how to make a sailor's monkey fist, go here.

Cheers...
