Despite Corona concerns and fears about the approaching war in Ukraine, five veterans made their way to Berlin to participate in the Welcome Home Program. First of all, we would like to thank our program partner, BUSMVA, for the excellent cooperation! But also to our local partners, the BUNDESWEHR and the STIFTUNG LUFTBRÜCKENDANK.
The former American military personnel who served in Berlin between 1972 and 1983 came back and experienced within one week how Berlin has changed. They visited their former duty stations and held discussions with students at Berlin schools. For the first time, the group was received by the police chief, Dr. Slowik. This program has been organized since 2008.
