10 Sep 2004 Blog Quote in Smithsonian
Speaking of Joe Roche, despite all the mishaps I was eventually (at 4:30 AM! Thursday) able to catch Joe on the Michael Reagan show taped Wednesday. So it is time to mention Joe’s other good news: Joe has been contacted by A&E Television Network, which is asembling a new permanent exhibit for the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, A&E asked Joe to give for permission to include in the exhibit this quote:
“I’m not trying to sound like a big tough guy. I’m scared everyday and pray before every mission for our safety and success. This is a combat zone.”
The exhibit, titled “The Price of Freedom,” is to examine the role of the American military in war.
