Memorial Day is typically fantasized in people's minds as a long weekend home from school and work when the weather gets nice. BBQ's and beach outings are prominent and common ways of celebrating this free time, but we often forget to remember the true reason our nation observes the last Monday of every May. This Memorial Day weekend, we must remember to be grateful for this time that we spend with loved ones and close friends because some of the brave men and women who serve our country and their families will not get to do the same. Let's reflect on those who lost their lives defending our freedoms, and also take enjoyment and pride into those courageous soldiers who do eventually find their way home.

Coming Home movie review & film summary () | Roger Ebert
Sally Hyde makes an ideal wife for a Marine: She is faithful, friendly, sexy in a quiet way, and totally in agreement with her husband's loyalties. Since his basic loyalty is to the Marine Corps, that presents difficulties at times. There's every chance he'll get a promotion over there. And the war, of course, is for a just cause, isn't it? It has to be, or we wouldn't be fighting it. The Sally Hyde at the end of the film -- about a year later -- is a different person, confused in her loyalties, not sure of her beliefs, awakened to new feelings within her. She hasn't turned into a political activist or a hippie or any of those other radical creatures of the late s.
Warner Bros. If Bugs makes it out of the arena, there will be plenty of foes waiting to match wits with him including Elmer Fudd, a leprechaun and Cecil Turtle. Fan-favorites Sylvester and Tweety along with Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner also come along for the ride in these ten all-new animated episodes. The brief trailer shows us teases of these episodes, including the classic skit of Bugs Bunny evading smoothly evading capture from Elmer Fudd for the hundredth time, and more classic hijinks — with a couple of modern twists thrown in, like a robot and a bird DJ party.
