On this Memorial Day, 2013, we pause for a few moments to honor the memory of all those who have risked their lives in the military service of our country — and particularly, the memory of those who have given their lives.
For this occasion we offer a puzzle whose answer is something that President Obama said, in his speech at the National Defense University last Thursday, about the military effort that has followed the attacks on our country on September 11, 2001.
(Note: This puzzle involves a wraparound or “hidden adjacency”. A wraparound is an adjacency between two letters that touch on the back or hidden side of the rack; for example, P and M are adjacent, even though they do not appear to be.)
