Grenztruppen in der DDR

18 Months

The basic weir service (GWD) by the protection of the state border of the GDR to the FRG

At the age between 18 and 27 years they were drawn to the "honourary service", to the state border of the GDR to Berlin (west) or green border (FRG).


My 1096 Days

Conscription to the border troops of the GDR

At the age of 18 years I was drawn on Nov. 04th 1986 to the border troops of the GDR. Not due to conviction, but in hope to get a residential permit lateron. Therefore I decided on 3 years to the service with the weapon. 


36 Months

As a noncommissioned officer on time (official abbreviation: UaZ)

if a conscript who did a three-year-old military service as a noncommissioned officer instead of the one and a half-year-old basic weir service was called in the border troops of the GDR.
