I grew up wanting to repay this country for giving my family a new home. As soon as I turned 17 I enlisted and requested serving in Europe so I could stand against the communist red army. My part may have been small compared to others but I stood and made myself count protecting the freedom of those who lived under the shadow of the communist. Maybe one day my home country will be free from those who oppress its people. My father was very proud of me for willing to defend freedom of others. (Return to “Why my brick?” Testimonial Page.)
