If you served on the border with the 2d Armored Cavalry Regiment during the 1960’s, and would like to appear in a short documentary for the new Army museum being built at Ft. Belvoir, please continue reading.

Chris Golden, our executive director at the 2d Cavalry Association, was contacted by the nice folks at Northern Lights Productions about doing filmed interviews with 2d Cavalry vets who had experienced alerts during their service on the border during the 1960’s. Following is the letter Chris received:

Dear Mr. Golden,

I am writing from Northern Light Productions, a documentary film and museum media production company in Boston, MA. Currently we are producing a series of audiovisual exhibits for the National Museum of the United States Army, which will be built at Ft. Belvoir, VA. Attached here is a letter from our project officer.

One of the short films we are producing is a three-minute, multi-screen production which represents NATO’s plan to defend Western Europe in the event of an invasion by Warsaw Pact forces. For this program, we are looking for veterans who served in Germany during the Cold War, specifically in the 1960s era, who would be willing to participate in the film through an on-camera interview.

We found the 2d Cavalry Association online, and I am getting in touch to see whether you knew of any veterans who might be willing to be interviewed, or would be willing to reach out to any of your members to tell them about our project.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email. Any assistance that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your time,
