1960 ... mixin' it up with The Mix!


... notice there is no mention of Polaris Ballistic Missile Submarines? They won't come on duty till next year (1961). Instead of a 'mix' it will be the Triad

1980 ... ballpoint pens keep the Peace!

 ... from those patriotic warhawk fellows at the 'National Lampoon'. They hit the nose on the button! There isn't a male Boomer that I've met who doesn't confirm that he kept America safe and strong with an arsenal five and dime pens at the ready! Only possible with Space-Age industrial giants like Bic and Fisher. (Imagine the catastrophic loss of life and environmental damage if fountain pens had been deployed!)
