37 Years ago today

I left the Boy Scouts of America and voluntarily enlisted to join the United States Air Force, swore an oath to protect my country, from an enemy that was then called the "Evil Empire". I proudly served at Malmstrom AFB with the 341st Strategic Missile Wing as a Electro-mechanical technician to the Minute Man II Intercontinental Ballistic Missile System. I loaded targeting codes into the same. It was highly classified, so that I had no idea as to where each missile was targeted but, it would be a safe bet that it was somewhere in the then Soviet Union.
Today, I am awe struck to my core that there are some of my fellow citizenry willingly wish to embrace this enemy to my country and Democracy. From what I have seen on the television, and newspaper articles as of late of this notion that somehow Russia should be considered an ally is truly amazing in itself.
I am beginning to feel that we have already lost and the process to capitulate our standing in the world is now in full effect.
Notwithstanding that we have a dimwit for a leader and our government run by those who only ambition is to just stay in power, by any means necessary.

Happy 241st Birthday America!!!

hope that there will be a 242nd
