Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Here's to Women Vets!
(1998 Version)

Stan Freberg here. Today is Veteran's Day; traditionally a day to honor all the men who served their country. The MEN? How about the WOMEN? See? I said that even before feminist attorney Gloria Allred had a chance to sue me! [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. Last year, a new memorial honoring women in the military was dedicated. As a fan of Armed Forces Radio, which carries me to our troops in 151 countries, I'd like to ask, "What took us so long?"

Women have been part of the military for a long time. In the Army, stationed at McCornack General Hospital, I reported to a woman--Capt. Laura Mack. I gave her a new "Mack attack" daily, like, say, by entertaining the injured men and women from the South Pacific, when I was supposed to be writing the base newspaper. She was tough. She'd say, "No problem, Freberg - you can just stay up all night so we can get it printed on time."

Happy Veteran's Day to Capt. Mack, and veterans everywhere.
