Listening to the program. It's certainly appropriate to salute the women and men who have served and are serving and their families.
I feel that your questions about barbecues and family gatherings is not on point. They are exactly the point. Spending lovely, laughing, warm time with those we love is one of the best ways we can mark this day.
Why not ask about the bombastic advertising to shop and buy buy buy on this day?

Thank you,
Marianne
