This Day In Berlin Brigade History – 9 September 1945-1994

02-CPT Jack C. Davis and 1LT Kvederas

Not every day in the Berlin Brigade was full of history making events then again being in West Berlin was history in the making for all members of the US Army Berlin Command, Berlin Garrison, US Army Berlin Brigade or whatever it was known any time during the almost 50 years of US Forces in Berlin after World War II.

Here we see CPT Jack C. Davis and 1LT Kvederas participating in the uniquely daily routine of Wall Patrol.  Photo is part of the Gallery Archive of Don Fitzwater when he was a member of Company B, 2nd Battle Group, 6th Infantry Regiment.

ALLIED FORCES DAY PARADE

From a little after the Western Allies (US, UK, FRANCE) moved in to occupy Berlin at end of the World War II to just before the Fall of the Berlin there was an annual Parade featuring all three nations. The Allied Forces Day Parade was traditionally held during the summer “parade season”.

I recently discovered a thought lost VHS cassette that had the on the ground POV video of the 1987 Allied Forces Day Parade.

Currently, on the Internet there are several other Allied Forces Day Parades from other years but, at this time, this is the only one from 1987.

Video run-time: ~22 minutes

Enjoy!

Recapping from the last episode of the BerlinBrigade.com Podcast
• If you have any information or were there when a proposed march to Steinstucken by US Forces after the construction of the Berlin Wall began was either in the planning stages or you and your unit mustered.

That’s it for this week.
Until next time,
