Special Forces – Berlin holds annual reunion in Beaumont | Beaumont Enterprise

Must Read

For the first time since the yearly gatherings began in 1998, Special Forces veterans from Berlin met up in Beaumont.

Special Forces reunions are unlike those of other veteran groups, where comrades gather to commemorate shared experiences. Berlin’s get-togethers entail being able to share their stories of service together for the first time. During the Cold War operations in the area from 1956 to roughly 1990, the Special Forces, commonly known as Green Berets, in Detachment-A and afterwards the Physical Security Support Element all served in Berlin. Det – A veteran John Lee, who was in Berlin from 1968 to 1970, said that “we all served secretly in clandestine operations. “According to Alan MacRae, a Support Element in Berlin from 1984 to 1990, their goal was “to prepare if we went to war with Russia, get our butts out of there, and wreak as much devastation as possible to cut all lines of communication coming in and out of Berlin to the Russian and communist forces.”
