What we're reading in TLS this week:

Memorial Day had us reminiscing about some of our favorite Military fics this past week. Everyone loves a man in uniform, right? We’ve also added a few of our recently updated favs for you to check out, if you haven’t already. As always, let the writer know where you saw them recommended when you leave them some love in a review. Enjoy
