A Young German Citizen Thanks the US

A seventeen year old exchange student from Germany, attending school in Upland, California thanks America for winning the Cold War.

Although he is too young to remember the Cold War, and the Berlin Wall, this young
man living with an American family while attending Upland High School made a special
stop.

He walked down the street to visit Dr. Robert Kamansky, Capt. US Army (ret) to say
"Thank you" to America for helping to bring an end to the Cold War. He felt the
reunification of Germany was the most important happening at the turn of the century.

He wishes to pass on thanks to all Americans in general, and the veterans of the Cold War in particular, for all the help given to his country. He wanted to acknowledge the
long hard struggle that the U.S. went through to preserve freedom.
