Ralph McDonald

You know the story, now read the book.    This is a work of fiction by Ralph McDonald, a retired computer geek living in Southern California.   He offers this account of two young men, Mark Nobel and Snoopy Richards, who join the Air Force during the height of the Cold War in the late 1950's.   Follow this dynamic duo as they endure basic training at San Antonio, radio school at Biloxi and the Russian Language Institute at Monterey Bay prior to their assignment to the 6913th RSM at Bremerhaven, Germany.

Events of the day marked their tour.   Rock 'n' Roll was king when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, PFC Elvis Presley arrived in Germany, the U-2 with pilot Francis Gary Powers was downed, and The Big Bopper, Richie Valens and Buddy Holly died in an Iowa plane crash.   Against this background, Mark falls in love with a beautiful Bremerhaven fraulein, Gabbi, and risks loosing his security clearance in a struggle to balance his heart with his sense of duty and responsibility.
