Class of 1958
Army, 3 Years

Army Security Agency, joint activity of NSA and the Signal Corps, monitoring and mining military communications for intelligence purposes of what became the Evil Empire. Stationed in Kassel and Lubeck in Germany where I made great use of Frau Gahlen's tutelage. HIghlight, although not at the time, was a Sunday morning in August 1961 when the Russians sealed the Berlin checkpoints and began building the Berlin Wall. We all were a bit puckered for a week or two and ultimately it was somewhat bittersweet when it finally came down in 1989. What was less well known, was the Russians were apparently committed to seizing West Berlin had Kennedy elected to interfere with their sealing West Berlin's borders. We felt our work was in some small measure instrumental in reaching the wise conclusion to not interfere. While it doomed millions of East Germans to 28 years of ongoing deprivations, it may have averted a full scale engagement with the Russians in Europe. Who knows.
