To the men and women of the 14th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Cold War Samurai who served and sacrificed to deter the Bear, a hand salute!  Your dedication to duty, whether freezing in a Northeast Asia winter, or sweating in a Southeast Asia summer, ensured a top notch fighter capability through that twilight of the Cold War.  Though you never fired a shot in anger against our prospective adversaries, your contribution was key to keeping the peace that we enjoyed in that time.  Thank you, and may God bless you, one and all!
