For those of us who were in Britain, the Falkland’s War of 1982 was a very big, emotional deal. We so rooted for our Task Force and so bummed with the bloody frogs (even though my parents were living in Paris) for supplying the enemy with Exocet missiles. I was Customer Support Manager for ITT (UK) at the time and did a lot of driving from one customer site to another. I was glued to the news. So wanted to make sure we won. And what a party we threw the night we won. What a victory. It was a great time.
