IIRC, Philippine Independence Day was July 4th, 1946. Don't understand not celebrating Memorial Day, though. TS

I'm sorry you must go out of your mind on that Island, I only spent four days there and that was enough for me. Got shit faced at the beach bar a bunch and thrown out of the resturant after watching the show. Mind you needed a rest after a week in Phuket. Still like staying in Wake Island though.

I work for the state and we don't get Veteran's Day or Columbus Day off (but we do get MLK Day off--go figure). They give us extra days off at Christmas to make up for it. GunLvr
