LBJ was my commander-in-chief during the four years I was in the Air Force, and his stern countenance staring down from orderly room walls was intimidating. He wasn’t popular enough among the troops to make me think I’d benefit from showing an autographed picture around that said, “To Phil, from his friend, Lyndon Johnson.”
