Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) says that for William Cody, the Cold War was actually ice-cold. After joining the U.S. Coast Guard in 1983, at the age of 25, he found himself aboard a polar-class icebreaker ship off the coast of Antarctica.

To keep warm, the crew drank authentic Russian vodka with bits of coal dust floating in it (they’d traded with Soviet sailors they met at the bottom of the world).

William Cody, a history major and Coast Guard veteran, takes classes in Austin Peay State University's Harned Hall.
