We traveled through the rolling hills of northern Kentucky, stopping first in Flemingsburg (pop. 3,100). On fourth of July, we talked at length with John Dunn and Dwayne Roller, who were both in the Armed Services. Mr. Roller received a Purple Heart during the Korean Conflict. And Mr. Dunn was in Thialand servicing U.S. bombers flying into Vietnam. (He vividly remembers the intense bombing of Cambodia just before the war ended.) And while not everyone is on the same page when it comes to, say, the Iraq War, the Vietnam War — now deceased Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, who was one of the ‘architects’ of the Vietnam War, later expressed misgivings about it –; we can all be on the same page in regard to recognizing the courage (and just plain guts) those ‘on the ground’ demonstrate during a time of war… Both Mr. Dunn and Mr. Roller are also extremely active Christians who participate in small covenant communities. And Mr. Dunn also is quite an astute Bible teacher… While we were in Flemingsburg, we also attended the Dunn family annual fourth of July celebration. It was quintessential Americana, with hot dogs, hamburgers, country music, backyard fireworks and a homemade rocket launcher that fired (Are you ready for this?): potatoes. In fact this was so impressive (the potatoes would fly 300 yards or more), our administration may well consider putting in a bunch of scud, oops, I mean ‘spud’ missile silos in, like, Idaho. Just kidding, sort of.
