Most conscripts had a very bad training, but I served in an unit, that should be one of the first at the inner-German frontier, if there had been a war. Well, luckily there was none and I'm more than glad, that it came out that way.

Compared to other German units, our training was good enough.

You didn't have an American M 577 attach itself to your unit in the '86 REFORGER exercise, did you?
If so, It was our company Operations Sergeant.
