    In Berlin Now

    For the 50 Year Memorial of the U S Soviet Union Panzer Confrontation. I was a guest at the discussion by General Clay's son Chuck Clay and Sergie Khruchev on the Confrontation. I was shocked that the C P itself now has a McDonalds where we had a machine gun position. I posted pics of an earlier time in an earlier thread. I'll post pics next week when I ge back as the hotel costs 2 Euro an hour so they are tryng hard on getting my money.
    I wore the same Leather jacket with all my patches on it and my Berlin Vets cap so I was getting many handshakes from Common people all day. The Germans I met were very very friendly. The Documentary showed on ARD and you all can stream it on the 27th. But I didn't realize that ARD is the biggest Channel in Germany so many people has seen me on the documentary. I can't go anywhere near C P Charlie or the Zoo area without people wanting to pose with me.

    Awesome! I was very impressed with the Checkpoint Charlie Museum when I was there about 10 years ago. Berlin is such an awesome city.

    I'm looking forward to the pics threefeathers. I was with the 3rd Division in Germany, (Aschaffenburg), at the same time. I was actually having a bier, maybe 2 biers, and hoping like heck that push wouldn't come to shove for you guys in Berlin. The only thing I had to experience as a result of the crisis was an extension of my tour in Europe. Hats off to you guys who were in Berlin during that time.

    Good fart? What kind of sicko are you?!!?




    OK for those who don't know, Gute Fahrt literally translates to "good motoring" but really means "have a nice trip".
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Have a good time, and posting pictures on the thread are a must. Keep us apprised.
