With the Wall now turning West Berlin into an exclave deep in the heart of East Germany, it became much harder for persons wishing to leave the German Democratic Republic from doing so. Description from got-blogger.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

SOVIET BERLIN BRIGADE | ... Colonel Alexander Dorofeev. (Soviet Union). W.Berlin.1981.jpg

The Berlin Brigade was a US Army brigade-sized garrison based in West Berlin during the Cold War.

John Parmenter served at the height of the Cold War when war with the Soviet Union seemed inevitable. His unit nearly deployed during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. The following year he served three months in Germany with the Berlin Brigade. In this picture, Spec. Parmenter poses with a jeep-mounted M-40A1 106mm recoilless rifle anti-tank weapon.
