Last night, I found an old tape cassette...the uprising in Lithuania in 1991 when the old Soviet Union was beginning to crumble
Vince, I had a priviledge to eyewitness the collapse of the USSR from inside. We formed a 370mi long human chain from ES->YL->LY to get outside attention.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltic_Way
It taught me that miracles do happen and even the strongest empires will crumble eventually.
I thank God and Ronald Reagan that I only had to spent 18years of my life in USSR, before if collapsed.
Today Estonian troops are serving with nato allies in Afghanistan and NATO fighters are guarding Baltic skies to make sure Russia stayes within its borders.
Last October I visited Minuteman Missile National Historic Site in South Dakota. You know, it's very interesting experience to stand NEXT to a nuclear missile which was targeting your QTH during the cold war http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=2438879180810
As Forrest Gump's mom said - life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get.
No matter where this grazy world is heading to - I really hope I don't have to change the prefix of my callsign again. Ever
