This Memorial Day I would like to reflect on that while we play the games of war, there are people at war who give their lives to protect us. In wargames, there is no blood on the table, there are no lost loved ones, there is no pain, but in war there is.
Great War is at present, I am con- vinced, not only the most expensive game in the universe, but it is a game out of all proportion. Not only are the masses of men and material and suffering and inconvenience too monstrously big for reason, but — the available heads we have for it, are too small. That, I think, is the most pacific realisation con- ceivable, and Little War brings you to it as nothing else but Great War can do.
– H.G. Wells from Little Wars
Some time today, call, write, email, or tell someone thank you for protecting our country and freedom. If there is one thing that wargames can teach us, it is that war is a evil thing.
Until next time,
