Dec. 25, 1991

President Mikhail Gorbachev went on television his resignation as the eighth and last
leader of the USSR.

It was largely a show as most of the Communist Block nations had alread
withdrawn and expressed thier desire for freedom.

It was the end of the Cold War, and we had won; truth and freedom prevailed. The world was
saved from "nuclear winter"

And you could continue to sleep safe in your beds thanks to all American Cold War Veterans.
