Peace is the Imperative
Ron Dellums is one of my all-time favorite political leaders. After I joined the Air Force in 1971 I was sent to Travis AFB in California after my training was complete. There was a race riot on the base as black troops grew weary of the institutional racism inside the military. Then Congressman Dellums held hearings on our base to help support the black GI's and I closely followed his career after that.
He was a long-time critic of the Pentagon budget while in the House of Representatives.
