Berlin 1969, by Robert Reynerson. He has photos of Berlin scenes, information on travel to and from the Divided City. He was with the U.S. Army Berlin Brigade 1969 - Rail Transportation Office and 1969-71 on a G-2 Division special project
Ed says his site has some memories of Berlin and of my time at Army Language School (before it became Defense Language Institute) as well as other stuff about my time with USAFSS. Would be happy to hear from any former USAF personnel that happen your way (and for that matter, Army too). As you can see, my site, like yours is primarily directed toward those who served in communications intel, but there is sufficient content of a general Berlin nature to stir a few memories for anybody who has been there. I served with USAFSS in 6912th RSM between 1959 and 1961. In those days the ASA unit was our downstairs neighbor in the Tempelhof building, but sometime after my departure both units moved their main operations to new sites. I had the distinction of shipping out of Berlin on the Duty train the night after the Tank standoff at Checkpoint Charlie began. Rather a shaky trip at best.
Berlin Site 4 - by Dean Stefan, dstefan at state.pa.us. He wrote that this December 2000 he finally got around to building a site for the guys at Site 4 in the Grunewald. Mainly for dittyboppers like Dean, at FS Berlin, Company A, Andrews Barracks 1971-73. He reminisces, "I remember there being a currywurst stand outside the front gate of Andrews Barracks. I always made sure I had the right amount of marks to get curry with pommes fritz, and then head down the street to Frank's Pig Pen for pizza and beer! Ahhhh, the good old days!
Detachment A, Special Forces of Berlin Brigade, was at Andrews Barracks, along with untold numbers of spooky mystery units. The Det A website is hosted by the SergeantsMajor.org website. CSM Tom Twomey requested this link exchange with us.
The Redlegs, for veterans of E Battery 320th Field Artillery. It's not an ASA site. I'm proud to put this link here to represent a great combat unit and the soldiers who served in it.
It's a fine website by and for some of the troopers who were ready to kill with their big guns, or to be killed on the front lines as Redleg artillerymen defending Berlin. Well done, with photos!

Allied Museum in Berlin, at what was the Outpost Theatre and the Art Nicholson Memorial Library. This new website for the museum shows quite a bit of what's offered in the collections and exhibitions. Nicholson was the US Army US Military Liason Mission Potsdam Major who was murdered by the East Germans as a result of a Soviet paid spy working at Teufelsberg.
