Immer in Kontakt +++ always in contact

The project BERLIN-PATROL has created countless contacts among people within Berlin, from different places in Germany, from Europe and even the United States. Just some days ago one of the members by the callname of „Frenchman“, who also is member of the Club West Alliierte in Berlin e.V. visited Col. (ret) Gail S. Halvorsen in Arizona. They had met during our annual Patrol in Berlin in 2013 and the opening ceremony for the Gail S. Halvorsen Schule. Frenchman had been a Liaison Officer for the BERLIN-PATROL since its beginning in 2011.

The two pilots had a special deed for their meeting apart from reviving their friendship: Col. Halvorsen, who became „The Berlin Chocolate Pilot“ during the Berlin Air-Lift (1948-49) and later was commanding officer of Tempelhof Airfield had agreed to support the German Pilot Federation’s application to hold the world meeting in Berlin in 2019. They produced a video message and some additional footage on Halvorson’s experiences in Berlin. We will be posting additional information as the material will be approved for publication.

August 1961 – August 2016

Im August 1961 entsandte der amerikanische Präsident Kennedy als Antwort auf den Bau der Berliner Mauer 1500 Soldaten  nach Berlin, um die Garnison zu stärken und ein Zeichen in Richtung UdSSR zu senden, dass die USA, Groß Britannien und Frankfreich sich nicht aus Berlin zurückziehen würden. Damals wie heute gibt es Spannungen in Europa. Wer die Geschichte nicht vergisst, hat eine Chance aus Ihr zu lernen. Das Programm der BERLIN-PATROL 2016 wird daran anknüpfen – jetzt anmelden unter BERLIN-PATROL 2016.

In August 1961 the American President Kennedy ordered additional 1500 soldiers to Berlin to reinforce the garrison there as an answer onto the erection of the Berlin Wall. By doing so he and the Western Allies set a sign, that the United States, Great Britain and France would not leave Berlin. Back than as today there are tensions within Europe. Those, who do not forget history have a chance to learn from it. BERLIN-PATROL 2016 will link to that – register now under BERLIN-PATROL 2016.
