We Were Soldiers Too: An eye opening story of military service during the Cold War and the difficulty training and preparing for war with the Soviet Union.
Online PR News – 10-April-2015 – Bedford, Indiana – The Cold War was an important part of history that ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Everyone knows the headlines of this era but few know the details and just how close the world was to World War III and a nuclear war. Politicians take credit for ending the Cold War, but the real credit goes to the men and women who served in the military. They trained hard and remained in a constant state of vigilance, ready to protect the world against a Soviet invasion and the spread of communism.
"I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. Mr. Kern starts with his reactions on 9/11 - and as a Cold War warrior myself, and having spoken to dozens of veterans, he captures our emotions that day perfectly - rage, sadness, and the desire to be back in uniform to protect the country we love. He then goes back to when he decided to enlist, through Basic Training, and on through his career under the Reagan Administration...I believe he is working on a sequel. I'll be looking for it and buying it the day it comes out." -single mom
"As retired Navy, I was skeptical about reading about the Army. I'm glad I did. I learned a tremendous amount of history, by someone who lived it. Every day. It was a very tense part of American history, that for the most part, was pushed aside. The duty was real, the heartache was real, and the commitment was real. This book brings that out. I highly recommend this book. A must read." -Tom M
"An excellent illustration of the lives and sacrifices of our Cold War enlisted service members. I recommend it to all...." -Edward A. Chesky
"... It is a fellow soldier's word, thoughts, and actions compiled from an era that a lot of Americans aren't that familiar with. Well worth the read and time spent." -Florida Native
