Det A's mission was highly classified throughout the Cold War. The fact that they were even stationed in Berlin was illegal since the Four Power Agreement for governing Berlin banned any airborne troops from the city. I attended DLI in Monterey, CA with one of them, and when we ran into each other in a Berlin bar a year later (I was assigned to the USASA 54th SOC at the time), he advised me in no uncertain terms that he didn't know me, wasn't in SF and to forget our meeting ever occurred. This happened before many of you were born, but to this day, I wonder what was their mission?
