I'd also be interested in other E troop pictures from 81-85
Does anyone have a higher resolution version of this image:

Hey I know that guy!!!
I was working the gate when all the refugees started pouring in in those little cars. We were flooded within an hour. Coolest part was that they were all respectable folk. There wasn't a lick of trouble. Not even as much as raised eyebrow. Real nice people. It was nice to see them liberated. Wasn't long before they all turned around and went back. Steve; I know what you are saying. I recently had a job with a Lithuanian guy who was an officer in the soviet side while I was in, and he said that they were fed the same propaganda that we were and that they had no clue what the frontier business was all about. They were no different than us. Just doing their job.
Well most of us 11 Charlies in Eagle troop while at our last border camp was on the op on the sonnenberg approach that great night in history watching 4 gaks smoking in the dark with our night vision gear .The rest had day duty an were in racks around 3 or 4 am Sheriff base called all sheriff elements east could travel document free to west authority regimental an then the flares came from the east side at same time
Happy Veterans Day boys. Michael, I was there when they closed it. When I got there it was just a skimpy barbwire fence like one around you property if you live in the country. You could go up & talk to the other sides guards. We weren't suppose to do that, but give them some American smokes you made a friend. They were just like us wondering what the hell we were guarding.
Happy Anniversary to those of us that were on tour in Coburg during the opening of the gates 25 years ago today. What a time.
Hey Michael Forte I was there on op the sonnenberg approach when the wall came down what a trip at 0400 waking everybody up .An yes we had lots of East Germans in our camp at coburg .Hec reaction was still going out scared the por folks to death when the Bradley's would come sliding around the corners on the way out gate
Michael Forte I do think we were in bamberg an eagle troop at same time even roomed across hall .Didn't you work with SSG Paigie
You guys had bus trips like my kids went on when in school? Our trips were to Graf. or the border. Echo troop 1962 to 1964. The Army was much nicer when you were there. Everyone (men & women) stopped & peed on the side of the road in Europe, there were no bathrooms & 5 tons for sure didn't have them.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
