On his 1987 album “Unlimited”, Roger Troutman has a song called “Composition To Commemorate (May 30, 1918)” on his . 
Does anyone know what this date referencing? 
Goggle has always come up empty handed but Chat GPT thinks:
"The date likely references Memorial Day, which is observed in the United States on the last Monday of May each year. May 30th was the original date for Memorial Day before it was officially moved to the last Monday of May in 1971. The song may commemorate the sacrifices made by soldiers or honor a specific event related to Memorial Day.”

    The only results that turned up were World War One battles and the day Bob Evans, of restaurant chain and sausage fame, was born.
