However, my personal hero, Ronald Reagan, embarked on a mission to convince the
Soviets Russians that they would never surpass us militarily and that our technology would ultimately prove superior. His leadership restored the professionalism of our armed forces and I am utterly convinced that we had the superior technology, training and discipline to prevail. That we prevailed in the Cold War is the ultimate form of victory. Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War, would agree:
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.So enjoy the freedom and prosperity that our victory in the Cold War achieved on this Veterans Day and thank God that He has provided leaders at critical times in our history like Ronald Reagan.
