Remembrance Day 2017

After the Moment of Silence, Michael delivers the "Thank a vet" thing by reminding himself that he has yet to do so.

(Strip Number 1365, Original Publication Date, 11 November 1988)

Panel 1: We focus tightly on a Legionnaire as he says that they're at the point of observing the one minute of silence in honour of those who gave their lives to this country.

Panel 2: After the Royal Anthem marking the end of the ceremony, Lawrence asks a downcast Mike what the matter is. What the matter is that he's never said thank you to his grandfather for living in a free world.

Summary: I think it's for the best that Lynn dropped the "It's a free country so I'm going to act like a goober on television" thing that originally ended this arc. I like poignant endings to poignant arcs and think that yeah, Mike being a bonehead on television sort of spoils it for everyone. I hope Lynn admits to fixing that mistake in the notes.
