'Rawhide Declassified' - Reagan Military Aides Speak
Reflecting on his life after the presidency, Ronald Reagan
wrote in his autobiography:
“But there was one person noticeably absent: the military aide, the person who, since twelve noon on January 20, 1981 had been at my side with the information I would need in case of a nuclear strike.”
In honor of President Reagan's birthday, Young America’s Foundation will host a panel discussion with six of the military aides who served under President Ronald Reagan, reunited for the first time since his Presidency.
The military aide has the vital task of ensuring that the “football” containing nuclear codes and protocol is accessible to the President at all times.
The panel will be moderated by Reagan Ranch Board of Governor and San Diego conservative radio host Mark Larson.
The featured panelists will include:
Rear Admiral James J. Quinn | Navy
Colonel Jose Murrati |Army
Colonel Ron Thomas | Army
Commander William J. Lee | Coast Guard
Major General Thomas L. Carter | Air Force
Lieutenant Colonel Mark Peterson | Marine Corps
