President Reagan's "Mr. Gorbachev...Tear Down This Wall" speech anniversary

Today, June 12th, is the anniversary of the "Mr. Gorbachev" wall speech.

I think I'll let President Reagan's own words speak for themselves.

I've provided the links here for you to access his words on YouTube.

There are two links, the first is a short one for the time constrained visitor. The second is the entire speech. (3:59, and 26:42 respectively).

Where did you serve? Military or Civilian? Stateside or Overseas. Fulda Gap? Berlin? NATO? CIA? State Department? The Dew Line? On a Missile Battery? Down in a Silo? At Sea? Under the Sea? In the Air? According to the VA over 26 million Vets are still alive. I'd bet that most served in the 1945-1991 time frame and I'd like to share your story on this blog.
