In 2020 America it’s easy to forget this nation is actually called The United States, a sometimes tenuous, but mostly strong union of people from all walks of life with differing viewpoints. The Young and the Restless star Eric Braeden can argue his views with the best of them but in the end, understands we are all one.
Eric Braeden On Love Of Country
After an evening of debate on Twitter this week, he showed us just that with the following end-of-night tweet.
“Good night to all of you!” Braeden said. “Am thankful to you for engaging in sometimes heated exchanges! It’s the times we live in! But we are adults and sometimes disagree! I have good friends w all different political opinions! They r still friends! We ALL LOVE THIS COUNTRY, THAT’S important!!”
One thing that has always made American great before the divisiveness we have all seen over the last few years is that this country is made up of a diverse group of people from all walks of life, some who chose this country after being born somewhere else.
Eric Braeden is one of those proud immigrants who was born in Germany in 1941 at the height of World War II. He arrived in New York City in 1959 and earlier this year he recalled his first day on American soil.
“THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING, WOW!! This is where I had my first CHEESEBURGER and CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE…. in 1959!!! Brings tears to my eyes!! Had just turned 18 and stepped on AMERICAN SOIL off the BOAT!! WOW, how time flies!!!”
He eventually made his way out west to California and became a TV star within just a few years with his role on Rat Patrol. In 1980, he landed his definitive role as Victor Newman on The Young and the Restless and the rest is both daytime and American history. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS.

Good night to all of you! Am thankful to you for engaging in sometimes heated exchanges! It’s the times we live in! But we are adults and sometimes disagree! I have good friends w all different political opinions! They r still friends! We ALL LOVE THIS COUNTRY, THAT’S important!!
