Remember the Cold War?

I have learned that Uncle Sam wants to give me a certificate of appreciation for my contributions to the Cold War — and every other person who served in the military from September 2, 1945 (the surrender of Japan) to December 26, 1991 (the dissolution of the USSR).

We’ve been living without the USSR for 17 years — the entire lifetime of my daughter, who will graduate from high school a year from this spring.
