Richardson, Texas, USA

Though it may not have the patriotic grandeur of military powers of the past, make no mistake, the US is a war-culture. We express it in subtle ways – less with poetic honor,more as a statement of fact.


Growing up in North Texas, you don’t need to look far to find it. Many of the US’s military equipment contractors are nearby – Bell Helicopter, Lockeed Martin, Raytheon, as well as suppliers of other components such as Texas Instruments.

The flavor of our love of the military is also something that may be unique. The Army sponsors a race car. We didn’t invent propoganda, but our model of celebrating battles and battle equipment more similar to sports broadcasting is uniquely American.
