War Is Boring

My duty station was in Andrews Barracks. Det A was not a particularly well kept secret.

As I remember, there was mention in the Four Power Agreement that there would be no “Special Forces”. I don’t remember any specificity beyond that. It seemed to account for the Det A spooks driving Blazers with USAREUR plates and always in civilian clothes. They were a quiet group among the many types of spooks Berlin had at that time.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
