A Timely Reminder

11/13/1983 President Reagan addresses U.S. troops at Camp Liberty Bell the Demilitarized zone South Korea

From the November issue of  “Out of the Archives,” the newsletter from the Washington State Archives:

“There are some who’ve forgotten why we have a military. It’s not to promote war. It’s to be prepared for peace. There’s a sign over the entrance to the Fairchild Air Force Base in Washington state, and that sign says it all: Peace is our profession.”

The quote is from the newsletter’s monthly feature, “Who said that?”  Being too impatient to wait until next month for the answer, I looked it up online and was surprised to find that it was President Ronald Reagan.

I doubt if our current Prez would really understand the concept…

    I wouldn’t have guessed it was Reagan. Oh well. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Sydney.
