I know what it feels like to be scared by military threats. I was in Germany in the Army Security Agency when the Berlin Wall went up. In fact, my best buddy Dick Crooks did the translation that first alerted us that something was amiss. The Russian army was racing to Berlin. We assumed for an invasion. When Crooks' heads up was confirmed, all Europe went on war alert. Two nuclear armies stood in stand off, watching a wall go up. Scary times! The setting for Baumholder 1961.

If you have an experience like this, it shapes how you feel about world events later.
