Freedom: unbridled

As a 19 year old, flying a million dollar war bird in Vietnam - (101st Airborne Division ("Screaming Eagles")) attributed to the American Bald Eagle - a bird that does not group in packs, I had unbridled Freedom to do whatever my mind lead me to do, as I patrolled the skies, usually a single ship, hunting any thing that wasn't suppose to be in my area of operations - I was a free spirit, governed by my own desires.

I was aware of my freedom then, and, while I don't miss war nor Vietnam, that same sense of freedom don't exist in everyday life.

 Freedom is only seen as limited when one is in a situation that is outside their comfort zone.
