A Memorial Day Remembrance to My Dad and My Hero: Major Philip B. Larimore, Jr.

General Health
Today many of us will gather with family and friends for barbecues and picnics to celebrate Memorial Day, the unofficial kickoff to summer. But, at some point between the hot dogs, hamburgers, and volleyball, I hope each of us will take time to reflect on what Memorial Day is really about – remembering the American soldiers who have lost their lives in battle to protect the freedoms so many of us take for granted.

Monday Memo – A Remembrance of Patriots on Memorial Day

General Health
Today marks Memorial Day, a national observance first known as Decoration Day. The first Memorial Day was observed on May 30, 1868. Flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.  Initially meant as a time to remember those who fell during the bloody battles of our brutal Civil War, the holiday's significance has been extended to honor all those who paid the ultimate price for our nation. As they have done every year since 1948, soldiers of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment will place flags at more than 260,000 gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery. They will remain at Arlington National Cemetery throughout the holiday weekend making sure that the flags remain upright. Gary Bauer's comment on Memorial Day is, to me, particularly poignant, and…

That night, after the Hartmans had turned in for the evening, I walked out back to sit on the bench behind our home. A full moon lit up Deep Creek Valley all the way to the dis- tant ridge lines, over fifteen miles away, which separated North Carolina and Tennessee. As I sat there, just reflecting and contemplating, my mind thought back over my time in Bryson City. Barb and I had arrived as strangers—more unwelcome and unwanted by…

THE SUMMONS (PART 2) Also, I’m delighted to say, Barb left town before Pete Lawson’s coverage of the Fireman’s Day in the weekly Smoky Mountain Times, which came out on Thursdays. His coverage of the day was excellent, with one glaring and conspicuous flaw—his poor choice to place a picture of one Miss Waltina Larina Bustmoore in the paper! I knew I could not put this awful “triumph” into my past—at least not yet. But I did have the consolation of knowing that…

THE SUMMMONS (PART 1) Beth walked quickly into my office. “Dr. Larimore, I need you in the treatment room. Now!” I threw down the chart I was reading and quickly followed her down the hall and into our procedure room. Inside the room, Patty was placing a blood pressure cuff on a distinguished-looking gentleman with beautiful gray hair and a tanned face—but he was ashen. I instinctively felt his forehead, which was cold and clammy. His lungs were clear, and his…

Wednesday’s Ask Dr. Walt — Vegan Diet

Dear Dr. Walt, My son and his fiancé have gone vegan and are very into this. They tell me that God doesn’t want us to kill animals and that vegan people live longer, healthier lives. I study God’s Word and don’t see any place where He tells us to not kill and eat animals. Also, I don’t believe that vegans necessarily live longer.
