A Cold War Warrior’s Note!

Hello Bill,

Thank you for taking the time to contact me and know that I am honored to make your acquaintance.

I downloaded Redeye Fulda Cold from Amazon and am only a little over a quarter of the way into your book and loving it for a couple of reasons. First because I was a project officer involved with the introduction of Redeye to US Army Hawaii in the early 70’s. Second, because as an enlisted man I was assigned to an armored 155 field artillery battalion located in Hammelburg, Germany back in the 50’s. Our mission was to support an armored cavalry unit patrolling the Fulda Gap. Your book is wakening many dormant memories and impressions I had of my first overseas tour in Germany, the alerts, the times spent in the field and of the many unique characters I encountered in my adventures as a young soldier.

I can closely associate with the situations you’ve so far revealed. Your book isn’t just telling what I’m sure will be an interesting story but revealing the emotions that soldiers feel as they are put through the mill and the SNAFU’s which are so prevalent in the military. It’s easy for me to identify with your role in this book. I feel as if I’m right there with you.
