Letters from the Cold War

by Marian Ely

 

Book Details


This is a collection of letters that represents my experiences in West Germany during the Cold War. I served in the US Army there from November, 1974 to February, 1978. I was a Radio Teletype Operator and then had the wonderful experience of singing with the 7th Army Soldiers’ Chorus based out of USAREUR (US Army Europe) in Heidelberg. My entire time of three years and three months in West Germany was full of adventures that were delightful, challenging and occasionally downright scary.

 

About the Author

Marian Ely

Marian Ely lives a quiet retired life in Corvallis, Oregon and actively continues to write. “My favorite activity besides writing is reading the newspaper in the morning and then doing the crossword puzzle in my favorite college coffee hangout called The Beanery next to Oregon State University campus. If you are ever in Corvallis, try The Beanery’s Sumatra coffee with a sesame bagel and herb cream cheese. It doesn’t get much better than that!”
