I was born in 1945, so I lived throughout the Cold War…and, in the year 2006, and for all the young people out there, the Cold War, was a dangerous game of chess between two super-powers…the United States and the then Soviet Union pointing nuclear weapons at each other!

I was in high school, when the Cuban Missile Crisis happened, and that’s when Soviet ships steamed toward Cuba, bringing nuclear missiles to station them on Cuba, and President Kennedy stopped the Soviets, by placing a block-aid around the island! We were all scared to death that this was the beginning of World War III and the elimination of the human race from the Earth! The United States prevailed in this confrontation with the Soviet Union, as the Soviet ships turned around and went back to Russia!

“Freedom is not free.” Those are the words on a sign in the lobby at the Veterans Medical Hospital, in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I live. Millions of American’s have paid with there lives for peace and freedom around the world! Freedom is not free! When freedom is threatened…the United States must act!

We have all heard of them…the disciples of the devil…Hitler; Saddam; Noriega; Milosovic in Bosnia. The American people should be proud of the fact, that the United States has taken the lead for many years, in eliminating so much of the evil from the world!

Over the past decade or so, the United States have had to deal with the cowards, who call themselves terrorists! And, during 9/11 America was attacked for the first time by these cowards, who hide behind women and children! There is no spider hole deep enough to hide these cowards from the American’s who will hunt them out…one by one! The American people are fed up with them, and those who threaten and prey on innocent civilians!

The will and the strength of the American people will never be defeated by anyone…NEVER! Freedom is not free! I’m proud to be an American veteran!
