When I completed my enlistment in 1973 I was so happy I kissed the pavement at the Los Angeles airport. Once inside LAX I walked past some protesting hippies.

I just wanted to get my discharge and go home, so just kept walking.
To the editor,
The angry, strained rhetoric between our president and the leader of North Korea brings back memories of the atom bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 at the end of World War II. Historian Paul Ham has written a book on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He states the Nagasaki bomb was subject to a force equal to 22,000 tons of TNT. More than 100,000 people were killed by the two bombs and thousands suffered severe burns.
