"I took my two sons, Mike and Jim, with me to see 'how the old man helped with the Cold War.'  Jim (at left) asked why I joined the Air Force.  I explained that back in 1961 there was compulsory draft.  If I had not joined one of the armed forces, then I would surely have been drafted by the Army.  I thought about it a few minutes, then added, 'The very fact that I and a lot of other guys were standing guard 40 years ago is the reason that you don't have the draft today.'   Upon arrival at Plattsburgh, we were briefed as to SAC's mission.  I remember being told that we were making the world a safer place for our children, but at age nineteen, I really didn't think too much about that.  Today, I know that the briefing officer was right.  That's what we did."
