I hope all those guys made it home, and that you get an understanding of how the Korean War vets were hungry for Hot Rod magazines, and how they spent some free time thinking about the cars they had to leave behind when they were drafted into a war, that today some of us only know of as the setting of the tv show MASH.

I hope you immediately think about the military stuck in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan... and do something to make their time in the sand pit easier to bear.
