Guiding Star O'er Washington

I pray a bright star will shine in the air O'er Washington to guide some wise men there Bringing gifts of commonsense And harmony to dispense To a nation that is in disrepair Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired © All Rights Reserved

First rate, Sgt. In the Air Force I was stationed in Rapid City - can remember standing outside the jamesways on Christmas Eve - I was in radar - with some other guys looking at the sky for UFOs. There was a big thing that year about UFOs. The mind is a powerful thing. We tried very hard to conjure up a space ship. Have a great Christmas. Love, daver
