I Spent An Evening With Heroes!
Simi Valley, CA—In the Bolshevik Collective of Caliornia there is a real monument to freedom and liberty. It is the Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.
Saturday night this wonderful place was filled with 43 surviving recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Along with these heroes was a large contingent of patriotic entertainers. Many I recognized instantly by face and name and many more that that I’ve seen in so many films and TV shows.
There were theatrical agents, producers and directors from the Right thinking side of entertainment. An in the mix excitingly beautiful women were everywhere.
The hosts, presenters and those honored included former First Lady, Nancy Reagan, General David Petraeus, WWII hero and actor, Charles Durning, CNN combat reporter, the lovely Alex Quade, Gary Sinise, Tom Sellak, David j. McIntyre, Jr. and Bruce Brereton.
I reflected on my two years as an Army medical corpsman in Germany holding off the Russians during the Viet Nam War. I was indeed humbled by my fellow Americans that gave so much more to preserve our freedom and way of life.
This was indeed a Celebration of Freedom at a time when our country faces the greatest crisis in my lifetime.
