"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address

100 years of Heinlein
Robert A. Heinlein's 100th anniversary of birth. He anticipated cell phones and a whole lot more. My favorites of his works include Space Cadet- a book I checked out from the Anderson AFB library so much when I was a kid that I probably set a record for most check outs of one book. Though I followed it closely witn Red Planet - as I grew older, Glory Road beckoned and I still re-read Starship Troopers from time to time.
Great yarns, with a keen understanding of the importance of character, honor and loyalty.
