A Memorial Day Special
It's Memorial Day weekend in the US, a holiday that commemorates the men and women who died while in the military. We thought that for the occasion we could have a look at recent ways in which various branches of the US military have been reducing their environmental footprint. There's still a lot of work to do on that front, but some progress has been made.
