As those that have been reading my blog for a while know that I was in the U.S Army, and served all of my 6 years overseas( excepting basic and AIT) We had a discussion with the building of the wall on Berlin the barricades that separated West Germany from East Germany. Here was the post I did last week. This was the post I did back in March. I talked about my time in Germany during the fall of the wall. I have a bunch of pictures I had taken during my time patrolling the border. I was border qualified to operate inside the 1K zone. I had just the border basic stuff. 2nd ACR who was responsible for the 1 K zone in VII Corp area of Germany was very strict, we had drills, rollouts, alerts, ete all the time in the little border garrisons. I remember spending a lot of time at the border post called"Hof" There was another one, but for the life of me I cannot remember. I was with 1st Inf div (fwd) in Geoppingen at Cooke Barracks. If you liked soldering, it was a good duty station. We spent a lot of time in exotic places like Hohenfels, WildFlecken and the rotations for border duty. Well I got my scanner working so I figured I would post a few pics. Once I figure out a way to set up a separate link on my blog to a folder or something I will upload more.
