I do have part of the wall that my dad had gotten from a friend that
was stationed over there. I let my son bring in a piece to school and
was quite amazed at how many of the kids knew about the wall. I hope to
pass on what I have tucked away for when he is older to give to him or
possibly a museum. So much is going on in the world right now, we need
to remember that better times do come around!

My name is John W. Hall and I was a young US Army Infantry Lieutenant assigned to the Berlin Brigade between September 1975 and July 1979.
I lived in the BB Housing Area and worked at McNair Barracks where I was assigned to the 2-6 Infantry Battalion, Berlin Brigade. West Berlin was an amazing city for a young person to live in.
The city never slept and there were so many fun, exciting, and interesting places to see. I would spend my weekends down town on the Kunferstendamn (Ku'Damm), walking through the Tiergarten park, museums, shops, restaurants, and bars.
Some of my favorite places included the Europa Center, Spree Keller on Oliver Platz, Joe's Beer House, the Irish Pub on Zossner Str, the Café Keeze, the Folk Pub, the Kudorf, and many others.
I also liked visiting the Brandenburg Gate, Kaiser Wilhelm Church, Charlottenburg Palace, the Bahnhoff Zoo, and too much more to mention.
While I was stationed in Berlin Rudolf Hess was alive and was still a prisoner in Spandau Prison. At one point, our battalion was charged with providing the guard contingent for Hess and I assigned as one of the Officers of the Guard.
It was interesting watching the old Nazi walk around his old garden, he would try to provoke a confrontation with the guards, which made time interesting at the prison.
I also had many opportunities to travel to east Berlin for shopping, visiting museums, or dining with friends. I'd travel through Check Point Charlie and then visit sites such as the Russian War museum, the museum of natural history,
the changing of the guard at their tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Russian cemetery where thousands of Russian Soldiers were buried in mass graves.

I am currently preparing a report on how and why was the Berlin Wall constructed and what was the reaction of the West? I have found so much information in your website and I truly recomend it. Thank for taking the time to create such a wonderful site.

I lived in West Berlin from 1987-1990 as a wife of a U.S. soldier. I was there and will never forget the evening I saw on AFN that the wall was coming down. I went down to the wall the next day and watched as East Berliners drove their little cars out. I am now a college student and will be able to use info from your website to help with my speech class. Thanks for having such a nice website!

I found this site informative, but i am doing a research paper on the Berlin wall. would love to hear some websites to get information from. thankyou
I was in Berlin from 1981-1986. Worked at TCA with the 1946CS. I was an ATC radar tech. I lived in BB housing area at 6A Taylor Str. I would have to say that some of the best yrs of my life were the ones I spent in Berlin. Met alot of great folks there and have lost touch with many of them. Sure wish I had got a permenant address for those folks. Loved the great beer and great food. Would love to go back for a visit some time real soon.

As a U.S. soldier I and my family had the opportunity to visit all of Germany to include East and West Germany. I hope to be able to revisit. I love Germany and the story of the wall is amazing.
You have put together a great site. I am in college and will be giving a speech on this great wall. Danke\'

My daughter has to do a project in third grade about in a "major landmark" in the country of their ancestors, using recycled products around the house.
My ancestors came from (Herzberg--"Hershberger's") and, unfortunately, the first thing that came to mind was the Berlin Wall.
This site was very informative and I have a lot of information to work with her on her project.
You did a good job!

I found this very moving and interesting. This terrible building, such a waste of resources to create a prison, for me seemed to hang about so many years, and its wonderful to see how it has actually G O N E !
I mourn those who died trying to escape, and remember those whose lives were blighted by it.
Thank you for creating this site.
