I know that for some members of SAS, that this is a very special day, for the wrong reasons.

Peace Out.

Never realized it was only 74 days. It seemed to go on forever. It felt like there was always trouble in the Falklands. At the time there were planes being hijacked, embassies being attacked, and hostages being taken. It seemed things were settling down at home, but the rest of the world was in a precarious situation.

30 years later and the issue is not over. There continue to be hot spots around the world. People will always crave power, so militaries remain essential to peace. Carry the biggest club and no one will steal your dinner.
