Officer and airmen all served for a minimum of thirteen months. They tell of the routines they endured, how they broke the monotony to keep their sanity (in some cases) and how they passed their time without seeing their loved ones. They also tell of some of the near misses they witnessed and their contact with the soviet enemy of the time at some strange locations. This is not another military book about radar and the heroes who served, rather it is a book of short stories by the personnel, the unsung heroes who quietly served to keep the peace.
Steve Weatherly, Radar and Communications Officer, 689th Radar Squadron, Mt Hebo Air Force Station, Oregon: "The Peacekeepers is not a radar textbook, but rather the story of Air Force people that committed themselves successfully to the air defense of the nation for well over three decades as members of ADC. We can be pleased with the result. There was no attack against the United States"
