Thank you for visiting my sites. You can also add my guestbook.
I went to Berlin in 1990 and I brought a 15 cm piece of Berlin wall with me. I travelled around Europe for 15 days with this piece on my back.
I'd like to sell it. If there is anyone interested please let me know.

hi I was with the hq. btry 2bn 3ed arty 3ed armored div. and was to go home
in october of 61 but the wall come about and myself and many outhers were
extended for four more mounths. buy the way the picture shows a m113
personal carrier when in reality it was an m48a1 tank the best we had and a
few blocks away and around the corner was about thirty more parked in a
hide.. with the four mounth extension came 10 more days leave so we took it
as sone as posable thinking there my be a war we did not want to lose it.
we went to Berlin saw the gate and charlie got board went to AMSTERDAM
for some fun . allinall we and my unit were never afarid of the Russians I
though we could beat them then and I know know we would have. a lot more of
the times but enough for know reguards
Wed, 27 Nov 2002
i was stationed in w. berlin from 1974-77, i worked at checkpoint charlie about 5 days a month for three years. if you go to
photos 1974 and look at the photo on the bottom, you will see the building on the left near the wall. on the top floor of that building we had a small room with a small window and we watched the boarder from that spot. one person manned the lookout spot for 1hour at a time and 3 army mp's were in the hut in the middle of the road.
believe it or not we traded hats, buckles and you name it with the east german guards.

Just had my 3rd visit to Berlin in 2002. You have a good site here and I browse it often. With luck by December 2002, I am moving in with my partner to live in Berlin.
One question, where did all the rubble of the Berlin wall go to, and can you still buy real amounts of it?

The concrete sections of the Berlin Wall were used as road building material.
You can still buy real amounts of Berlin Wall but many pieces were painted by
Hi, I am a lady from Evarts Kentucky, My name is Rachel Brock. I am writing to say "down here you hardly ever hear anything mentioned about the Berlin wall"

i just wanted to say that when Kennedy said "ich bin ein berliner" the crowd laughed at him. what he actually said was "i'm a jelly doughnut" ein is an artical and changes the meaning of he word berliner. your info is wrong!
Tue, 08 Oct 2002
The German word "Berliner" has two senses.
It means resident of Berlin but it is also used for jelly
doughnuts outside of Berlin.
"Ein Berliner" means a resident of Berlin (one of many others).
"Ich bin ein Berliner" means: I'm a resident of Berlin. That's what
Kennedy said and the crowd was very happy that he said these German words and
really no one laughed at him.
Very good homepage about the berlin wall, we got a lot of good information.

I was stationed in Berlin from Jan 1961 to Dec 1964.
I was assigned to the 11th CID for part of that time and served as an interpreter at Checkpoint Charlie and on the Autobahn. I did a lot of interpreting for LTC Robert Sabolyk, who was the Provost Marshal during part of that time. Later I did the same thing but at G2, BBde, then G2 Allied Staff.
Were you in the 287th MPs? I don't recognize your name.
Enjoyed your Web Site.
Would like to correspond or talk to you as I, and Dick Topping, ex 78the ASA are writing a book on Berlin.
I was at Charlie on Aug 17th when Peter Fechter

I was stationed in Berlin from 1972-1975 as a US Army Photographer assigned to Brigade HQ.
Berlin was the greatest duty station I ever had. The people were great. After all of these years not a day goes by without me thinking of it and the people.

Thank you so very much! This website has saved my life as my german oral topic for A-level is the Berlin Wall. The site creators are stars!
Fantastic English as well, possibly better than the German section.
Sun, 28 Apr 2002
A real great site. I'm from germany and I was looking for a site that can offer me informations about the Berlin Wall.
I found everything I needed for our schoolproject. I think the english part of this page is better then the german part
cause I found more detailed informations about the currency (1:6) and other details.
However, It's a great site and I will give the URL to my friends that they will enjoy it, too.

I AM AN EX MEMBER OF THE ROYAL MILITARY POLICE AND I SERVED ON CHECKPOINT CHARLIE IN 1989. IT WAS
A FANTASTIC TIME TO BE IN BERLIN AND TO SEE ALL THE CHANGES. I ALSO WORKED AT THE TIERGARTEN POLICE
POST GUARDING THE SOVIET WAR MEMORIAL. I AM KEEN TO REVISIT BERLIN AND SEE HOW MUCH THE CITY HADS CHANGED SINCE I LEFT IN 1992.
Wed, 27 Mar 2002
A very good website which certainly gives the uninitiated an excellent introduction to the wall. A little more on the history
of the wall would add to it though. The reasons why the Allies and the Russians wanted it built, etc.
Mon, 25 Mar 2002
I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN BERLIN.
I LOVED THIS CITY MORE THEN ANY OTHER PLACE IN THIS WORLD.WE SURVIVED THE AIR RAIDS AND LATER ON
THE RUSSIAN TROOPS MOVING IN ON US.I WAS VERY YOUNG THEN-AND NOW A SENIOR CITIZEN LADY IN CALIFORNIA.
THANKS FOR YOUR PICTURES I FOUND ON THE INTERNET.

In 1985 I was stationed at McNair Kaserne located in Zehlendorf ecke Platz am 4. Juli. I was a soldier and I never dreamed in
all my time there that the wall would be coming to an end of any kind. Thank God it did for the freedom of the folks of the then
East Berlin and surrounding areas. It was always interesting to look at the otherside and the guards in the towers watching us run
along the Berlin Wall in the mornings along the Teltow Canal gor fitness. My memories are that of mostly difficult times in dealing
with certain aspects of the Wall and the consequences that went along with it. It is now a most challenging time for germany as
a whole to fully become united and deal with the economic travesty of the past and present for the people of the Easstern part of
Germany and Berlin. To ignore the Easterners and to say they have much to catch up upon and relearn is no good either.
All must work together to get everyone back to work and the new generation into schools for a proper education rather than
being propagandized as their parents and grandparents were when the wall went up or for that matter, before the wall went up in the first place.
It is my fondest hope to return to Berlin and to see the changes myself after being sent from Berlin to Central America in 1989 only to leave
the Army after injury in combat in Panama in that same year or rather 1990. God Bless to you all
Wie ich lange zu in Deutschland wieder sein. Und auch so in Berlin wo mein herz ist dabei.

Tue, 26 Feb 2002
Great site, but I think it needs quite a bit of re-editing...The fact that divided is spelled wrong twice, in different ways, and a few other mistakes take away from the professional look of the site, thus making the information less believable. Thank You!!
Sun, 24 Feb 2002
Comments: I'm sorry for any spelling mistakes on this site. This site comes from
Berlin and my native language is German.
Any help is welcome.
This is a great website. I am doing a project on the berlin wall in school. I chose the wall because i have a piece of it and ive been there twice. I used to live in Koln for three years. THANKS!

Berlin was and still is a great city. I and have many fond memories of it. I served there with the 1st. Battalion K.O.S.B.sometime around 1959 - 60.
Billeted in Brooke Barracks, Spandau. Did the guard-change thing, alongside the Americans, French, Russians and watched shadows at night on the walls of Spandau Kaserne hoping Rudolph Von Hess would make his big break (he was in his seventies then I believe).While I dreamt about my cold bier und bratwurst awaiting me at "Das Ecke Cafe," auch in Das Grunevald Forest and on the beaches long the River Havel.
"Ah Berlin".du bis so schon. Please all German readers, forgive my lack of umlauts.
A great web site that brought back fond memories, thanks, Harry
