Little vortexes in history...

 On this day in 1946, Cadet Captain Timothy Donovan, (aka the Auld Soldier) presented his saber in salute to Sir Winston Churchill, as the Missouri Military Academy of Mexico, Missouri, provided the Honor Guard (Cadet Captain Donovan, commanding) for Winnie's now-famous "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri.

I still have that saber.
