To the sound of their bugles and drums, the Young Soviet Pioneers follow their great Leader and Teacher, the beloved Stalin, forward and ever forward to Communism. Sasha dreams of joining the march of the Young Soviet Pioneers. By the time he was one year old, his dad taught Sasha the Pioneer greeting. Sasha’s dad said, “Young Pioneer! Ready to fight for the cause of the Communist party and Comrade Stalin?” In response, Sasha raised his hand in the Pioneer salute, but he couldn’t reply “Always Ready!” like the real Pioneers do. Sasha couldn’t talk yet.
