Great site thanks - seen familiar names!
It's still THE place to be after 32 years. Les and I walked miles and took S-Bahn and bus round the city we love. It's so easy I recommend to anyone that you get a map and go back. Ahh, Schultheiss smile
TREPTOW Park, Spree boat trip, walked the Ku'damm, down to Frankies Curry Station and watched Hertha play in the Olympic Stadium (on my horizon from Mar 78 - 81)In touch with about 30 pals and Brixmis association too. blue

I served in the Border Regiment in Wavell Baracks, Spandau in 1958 in the Corps of Drums
I remember well the times spent in the NAFFE,The Cafe Staphani and Ozzies Bar. Did anyone do a guard at the GOCc residence, Villa Lemm on the banks of the River Havel
The only time we did a Guard duty wearing Plimsolls
because are Ammo boots made to much noise.
I would do it all over again for the great times and the mates I made for life.

Looking at your site I noticed one very important piece of information that isn't included on your site.
The first time and the only time the that anyone who was deployed from the entire BDE who were awarded the BBDE patch to be worn on their right shoulder as a COMBAT PATCH were from 6/502! when we were deployed to OPERATION PROVIDE COMFORT II. 411 soldiers from B/6/502 can wear the combat patch.

I spent three years on that staff, from Jun 68 to Jun 71, when it was located at the Olympic Stadion. After 31 years in the Army, it was my only tour in Germany, although multi TDY trips in later years took me to the old West Germany and to the US military casernes located there.
