    My buddy served in both the 101st and the 82nd Airborne Divisions (and is still active in the National Guard. )

    Every year, without fail (except when he's been Active Duty in-theater) at midnight on D-Day he cracks open a bottle of Jim Beam, pushes 'play' on Band of Brothers and doesn't stop until he watches the entire mini series. 10 hours straight.

    True to form, I received this text pic last night at 12:01AM his time zone:

    I completely spaced it out till I saw this thread. Guess I’m not much different than Biden. Seems he spaced it all out too.

    You do not have a staff that reminds you of important things on important dates, but Joe was probably out of the loop enjoying his long weekend.
