How fast time flies


I remember well the events of 24-Apr-1981. We all were following the story of the US hostages in Iran.

As Florida Cracker so dutifully relates, it was a sad day but in the end it was the catalyst that got us to get our act together. 25 years ago today, Operation Eagle Claw put to rest the limp, lame, soft-spoken-but-no-stick-holding presidency of James Earl Carter.

We'd had as much of Jimmy Carter, and of defeat, as we could possibly bear.


Florida Cracker also notes the 30th Anniversary of Operation Babylift; this Blog admittedly was too young to recall the details of that day, nor was he taught much of that time at all in his formal education.
