The Cold War Was Like No Other

May 24, 2017

Throughout the course of its existence, the US military has been called upon to protect and defend areas outside of our national borders. In 1947, President Truman announced the Truman Doctrine, which stated the United States would help nations that were under threat from the spread of communism. The implementation of the Truman Doctrine is recognized as the start of the Cold War.

While no large-scale fighting took place between the US and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, our armed services fought in major regional wars whose participants were supported by the two sides. Through these proxy wars, the forces of democracy strove to contain the spread of communism. Over several decades, these two major powers clashed, using the world as their stage. In 1991, the Cold War finally came to a close with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
