If Only it Was this Easy–and Safe

I like writing holiday-themed humor. But none is harder than Memorial Day.
So, I was happy when I found this old comic book cover art. Even in 1943, it was a sweetly naive, childish view of war. But sometimes reality is a little too real to bear.
 Happy Memorial Day!

Art by Al Plastino from 4Most Vol. 2, #4, Fall 1943.
