Needs to be mentioned
I remember Reagan well enough to know that he was a true leader.

Sure wish we could have more like him....
For God, Family and Country!

Absolutely! He was my commander-in-chief while I was on active duty.

I think that would be a wonderful tribute to one of the best Presidents this country has ever had. Certainly the best of the last century.
He was my Commander in Chief for just a short time as I went on active duty in September of 1986. But, I remember him well and have several DVD's with all his speeches on them. He was truly an inspirational speaker.
I so wish our country had a leader like him again. Lord knows we could use one.

He was my first Commander-In-Chief.

My favorite Ronald Reagan quote:
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on to them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free".
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

He was the best, unfortinatly Carter was my 1st "commander" and chief. Reagan was such a breath of fresh air.

Our greatest President, my best C-in-C, and his best quote:
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.

Truly a good man. A fitting tribute to have a country formerly in enemy hands want to memorialize him as such.

It was a sad week when he received his reward. He will always be one of my heroes. It's pretty awesome that Poland wants to erect a Reagan Statue.

I hope they are successful in their attempt to build the statue. There needs to be one somewhere, and I don't think the libs will let one be built in this country.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

I hope Reagan gets the Poland monument.
It's a sad thing that there isn't more men and women like him in Washington anymore. Ones that would stand for what they feel is right for the country. Not just what is right for the vote and the money.

He was one of the best Presidents of the 20th century! He gave our
country confidence when we needed it and kicked ass when warranted! He was a great communicator the free world has not
seen in years nor will see for years to come.He was on of a kind and
I was fortunate to be old enough to vote for him.
