    Tell them that California use to be the Golden State but not any more, Univision and Telemundo has indoctrinated the Mexican that anyone pointing that out is a xenophobic, homophobic, racist Klansman.

The so called rules said the we were supposed to exchange money in the east where the exchange rate was one for one. I still have a wad of east marks.

    I used to go to a store named Natacha's. It was a variety shop where you could buy anything from Zeis binoculars to clothing. A pair of Zeis binoculars cost the equivalent of three or four dollars.

    I used to drive. I had a 1971 Mach 1 mustang. I always attracted a crowd when I parked. They loved that car.
    Awesome...I was there for two years in the mid eighties (Co. F 40th Armor...Turner barracks).

    Two major things happened in my tour. 1. the LaBelle disco bombing and Reaganís retaliation on Libya, we where on red alert for 4-5 weeks. Practically gun tube to gun tube with Soviet tanks for a while...we would have all died, so glad nobody got nervous and pressed a trigger.

    2. Chernobyl, that was even worse surprised I donít have an extra head or something growing on me. That was way to close to Berlin for my liking, I remember not having any type of dairy products for a while.

    I also helped captured (I use that word loosely) two East German Border Guards that escaped to the west one night that they were working a East German guard post. During the interview I asked them who would win the next Great War, without hesitation they both replied the Soviet Union I then said what about your families, they both looked down and did not reply. I got a picture with them somewhere, I need to find it.
