Many people forget that during the Vietnam War era there was
another war going on — one that had been raging since the 1950’s: The
Cold War. While brave men were dying in Vietnam, equally brave men
were facing an enemy much more threatening than those in Southeast
Asia – namely the Soviet Union. RedEye Fulda Cold brings to light the
rigors and experiences of those in the 3rd Armor Division, as well as
humorous anecdotes of life in the U.S. Military in Europe in the 1960s.
The Cold War, as played out in places like the Fulda Gap, and the threats
and missions our soldiers faced in this environment, is all but forgotten
in our history except by those who served in it.
