Memorial Day - Thanks to Those who Served the Country. Some Even Got on a Kellogg's Card

Ernie Banks and Willie Mays both served in the military early in their careers.  Today is a day to honor all of those who served the country.

Both of these players appeared briefly in the Kellogg's sets as they retired in 1971 (Banks) and 1973 (Mays).

Mr. Cub certainly did it all in his long life.  As I said last time, he will be the subject of many posts going forward.

Certainly the Say Hey Kid will be a regular entry in this blog going forward.  

So, run a 5k, eat something from the grill and remember someone who served the country.  If you are fortunate enough to not know anyone who died while serving the country, remember those you've seen honoring their loved ones at one of the walls in D.C.

The answer to yesterday's question - President F.D. Roosevelt.  He served 13 years as president, he had two cards in the 1954 Scoops set and Washington teams were always "first in war, first in peace and last in the American League".
