Roamy here. On the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ronald Reagan, I thought I’d ask y’all for your thoughts on his Presidency.
My friend Swamp Heathen #1 is a great admirer of Reagan, mainly because he served in the Army under both Carter and Reagan. He says in the late 70’s, they couldn’t get parts for repair at his Hawk missile site in West Germany, and there’s nothing worse than sitting there, knowing the Soviets are on the other side of the line, and if they come across, there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. All that changed with Reagan.
Another friend left the Army in the 90’s, before retirement, saying “it’s not Ronnie’s army any more.”
I think I’m going to go watch Hellcats of the Navy.
