What is America?
"First American I ever met was a US Army Sergeant at Tan Son Nhut in Saigon in 1967. I was hot, tired, jetlagged, lost and confused. He pegged me as an Aussie, and gave me a cold Budweiser beer, a corned beef sandwich, and organised my ongoing move up country.
Sort of a one man version of what America has done for the rest of the world for 200+ years.
No better friends. "
