Jim tells Mike about an upcoming reunion with the rest of his RCAF squadron in such a manner that reminds him that old soldiers die just like everyone else.

(Strip Number 4845, Original Publication Date, 18 August 1987)

Panel 1: As Jim reads the paper, Mike asks him how long he can stay. Jim tells him only for a few days more.

Panel 2: He then tells Mike that he has to attend a reunion of his wartime RCAF squadron.

Panel 3: What he and the others like to do is meet up, tell old war stories and see what other people are up to.

Panel 4: Most importantly, they get together to see who's still alive forty years after the war and counting.

Summary: Given that thanks to cremation, Jim is currently in two places at once, I should think that we'd get a sort of reminder to thank a vet for our freedom while we still can.
