We had a conversation early this morning about Vlad. P.

I said : Wow. Still the USSR and State Controlled..

I served as a soldier in Berlin.

In those days we had 4 FOUR sectors. The goodies were the French, Americans, Brits. I worked Checkpoint Charlie & Tiergarten too many times to not know that the EAST were the baddies.

We had to wear our uniforms to cross from West to East Berlin. F A C T!

I didn’t start the fire.

P.S. Tiergarten duty (opening the gates to the Russian War Memorial) placed me between the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. After a drive down unter den linden to the Victory Column.

P.S. I was given access to the Reichstag. Sssh!
