More About What Did You Do in the Cold War, Daddy? by Jack Tarvin; Ed Paquette
 
 
 
Overview

It's with an honorable and earnest voice that authors and longtime friends Jack Tarvin and Ed Paquette dramatize their experiences in border surveillance camps between West Germany and Czechoslovakia in 1968. It is a detailed and moving narrative, written by two men who lived it, that simultaneously entertains and pays homage to the men and women who served on "Freedom's First Line of Defense" during the Cold War.

For many GIs, it's an all-expense tour of Europe-seeing and doing things that would've otherwise been impossible. At the same time, it's a gravely serious and frightening period that will impact the rest of their lives. The collection of vignettes digs into the triumphs and challenges, the comedic and serious, and, ultimately, the indomitable spirit of the United States and its soldiers.

Experience staring into the freezing cold, snowy darkness and wondering who's staring back, when the next land mine might detonate under the weight of the snowpack, or under some unlucky refugee trying to escape. Experience what many of our American mothers and fathers did while serving their country in Cold War on the borders of Eastern Europe. Experience What did you do in the Cold War, Daddy?
