The evacuation of Dunkirk.

340,000 men were evacuated from Dunkirk under enemy fire. I doubt that even Trump, although I may be wrong, would fire on American citizens. Foreign ships would not have to dock, so they could debark the people in American ports.

We, the people, need to send an armada.

See how many Puerto Ricans we can bring to the mainland.

I was 20 and in the army.

All of us studying to be Russian linguists were in the Steinbeck theater on Cannery Road in Monterey watching the Russian opera, Pikovaya Dama, Queen of Spades. After it ended, we learned that JFK had been shot.

That's the oath I took

Support and defend The Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Except for Reagan's ego

there never was a good reason for us to invade Grenada. A lot easier to just bomb the extended runways a few times and they would get the hint.

GI Bill

That is the way I paid for college. Okay, I have to admit, my grades did not get me into college. Massachusetts at that time guaranteed veterans that they would be accepted to any state college or university as long as they had a high school diploma.

Probably will never know why.

Even when the attempt fails, you may never know why you tried. Dec 27, 2014, I was very nervous but don't know why. Dec 31, 2014 woke up in the hospital. My wife and a man I learned was my psychologist were in the room with me. He told me he had been talking to me every day since I entered the hospital. He said I was pleasant, but did not know I had attempted suicide. I still do not have any idea why I tried to kill myself. I was transferred to the VA hospital psych ward. It took them a month to straighten out my meds. How can I know why someone commits suicide when I don't even know why I had tried.
