US Military Cold War Veteran Challenge Coin
The Cold War encompasses a vast stretch of time. It was started after the Truman Doctrine was proposed, during 1947. The Truman Doctrine promised foreign aid to countries that fell victim to Soviet expansionism. The war in Korea and Vietnam was the result of the US trying to establish a greater sphere of influence against the Soviet Union. The Cold War did not officially end until 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Devil Dog Shirts is proud to unveil the Cold War Veteran design to honor our Cold War Veterans. The time between 1947-1991 was one of the most tense periods in world history. This is because the United States and the Soviet Union was armed to the teeth with a vast nuclear arsenal. In the time period of 4 hours our entire planet could be destroyed with the push of the button. This had a psychological impact on both civilian and troop during that time.
Devil Dog Shirts has the Courage to be Honorable and Committed to our fellow Marines. Furthermore, we strive to perpetuate the Warrior Ethos in our Corps by creating the best gear a gun-slinger can wear! All of our apperal is made right here in the United States of America! Semper Fi!
