Years ago Robert wrote, I though not a hero, am an American Veteran like many others. I was in the first trucks to go into Berlin in the early 60's and can assure you of these things. The American soldier has always and will continue to endure, triumph over and stand up to any thing that any government can bring against them. The men in my platoon were called to ride directly in front of enemy machine guns, while being "buzzed" by enemy migs. We were told to be alert and resolute, and we were. No one but us knew that we were not issued ammunition. We all fully expected to die. No one left. No one ran. No one cried. We loved America our children and grand children love her still, just as much. We were young, eighteen to twenty-five. We were proud to be there. And when we reached Berlin, the people cheered and threw us flowers, we saw what freedom means to the oppressed. God blessed America then and he has continued to bless those who are fortunate enough to live here. Our men are equal to this or any winter. Our way of life must and will survive. When they enter any conflict, they will not leave, they will not run, nor will they be defeated. They will fight because they love us, you and me, and because they love this land of opportunity. Once again, God will bless America. Around the world, freedom's head will be held high.
Do you have conflicts or mountains too high to climb? Robert experienced many, so absorb the lessons he learned and hold your head high as you learn to fight the good fight with honor and power. Learn to love yourself as our fighting men still love you! Thanks for a place to say how I feel. Robert B. Hayden RA15624148 18th Infantry. 1960-1963
