Border troops of the National Army

 I am doing this because it is about the 5 commandos of the border security of the GDR. This is part of the history of the GDR and will always appear in the history books.

Only our service hours, which we have in Berlin, the Green Frontier, the coast, or the socialist countries, are tied to annual figures. If some of you try to enter more than the border compartments, the search for the information begins (with 'it could be') and the question arises: "How was that again with me?"

And here I sat with the documentation, accessible to all intimate visitors.

Displacement from 1946 to 1990

Here I have started to make it easier for many, and a documentation for borderers - created by borderers, who display their details in their profile. Since 2010 year, I have gathered information about the 5 commandos of border security and arranged them in an overview with annual figures and commands, so as to have the information ready to call. I would gladly put them at your disposal.
If you want to contribute to this, you are welcome to do so, as this is the only way to get an overview of the deployment of border security

And here the link to the website: www.nva-grenztruppen.org up to the sale of the equipment and wall parts, with the transition to Mienensuche until 1995.

Former "frontiersman" under the cloak of the Bundeswehr
A letter by Ingo of Jutrzenka the "Potsdamer Latest News" from 31.01.2008
It's revealing - and disturbing for me - if today profess members of a "fellowship of alumni in the German Armed Forces Association" in Potsdam openly about her past as a GDR border guards. Although I am a member of the Armed Forces Association for more than 42 years, has remained hidden from me so far, that in Potsdam numerous "border guards" have rediscovered under the mantle of this association and may say without contradiction that they contributed with their service "in good faith for peacekeeping "would. This coincides not with the perception of the public in the East and the West in 40 years of GDR rule and similar fatal the justification try former Stasi officers. As a former soldier of the Bundeswehr have to clearly distance itself from the way these former "members of the armed forces of the GDR", which today subsequently gain recognition for their service at the border under the name of the Armed Forces Association. The rejection of the use of Bundeswehr soldiers in Afghanistan is actually identical with the demands of the Left Party, formerly SED / PDS, the Bundeswehr Association should not give up on these positions "Former".
Jörg Gernert, Potsdam
The trust camaraderie deceptive
The report conveys the seemingly idyllic picture of an association in the former German soldiers and former "border guard" is now supposedly in an intimate companionship for the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the Border Regiment "Walter Junker" struggling under the somewhat misleading umbrella term "Bundeswehrverband", which in the Eye of the chairman has honored for "realistic analysis of past history" through his tireless efforts to secure peace.
Had the rapporteur, however, times tested, as many former Bundeswehr soldiers who participated in this meeting, he had come to a number from one to two. This explains that in this companionship, almost all served in the NVA and there mainly in the "peace-loving" border troops. The proud "frontiersman" embittered that they are not their rank with the addition aD may lead. Because there is no amendment to this privilege simply you can treat yourself, not only within the association, but also in the public correspondence. Since unauthorized titles leadership is threatened with imprisonment up to one year, could be those who behave, refer to themselves as notorious outlaws led by a former political officer of the GDR border guards. It will take some time, under such circumstances, there develop to former German soldiers who find themselves involuntarily in such a fellowship because of their association membership, and comradely feelings.

I took the article aware, it is the view of a former. Bundeswehr personnel ... and let the times are!
Companionship is lived, but not only because of the past - today, it's about to come to terms with the history of the border troops and their missions.
Meeting with members, their families and friends will find in the former. Border companies instead of, or with Stammtisch meetings in Germany as "WE" frontiersman living scattered throughout the world. But do not forget what we have experienced. And are very fortunate that we survived our service on the border.
Unlike other members of the border troops who had to pay their service to the inner-German border with his life.

Bordercommand South

This should ensure more powerful reserves for border security in the peace and national defense, the use of border company (GK) in the border security and the creation. To this end, 3 border commands (GKN - Kalbe / Milde and Beetzendorf - later Stendal, GKM - Berlin and GKS - Erfurt) formed. they should allow close cooperation with the military districts of the NVA and the associations of GSSD.

The Border Command South (GKS) was by order # 138/70 of MfNV from 10.27.1970 held by the 9.Grenzbrigade (GBR) Erfurt, the 11.GBr mine and 13.GBr Rudolstadt in deploying the right border pillar No. 1026 (County Line Erfurt-Magdeburg) and left the border post Nr.XXIII / 13/8 formed (at Ebmath in Karl-Marx-Stadt). The border length was 806.9 km, of which 799.25 km to BRD - border pillar Nr.2735- (information on the boundary lengths differ in other documents - including border regiments - slightly). Of these approximately 367 km open terrain, ca.395 km forested and about 45 km river border. In particular, the border sections of the GR-4, GR-3, GR-15 and GR-10 contributed upland character. In protective strip there were 42 towns. The bars of GBr`n, the GR-5 Nordhausen, GR-2 and GR-11 Eisenach Zschachenmühle were dissolved. Staff numbers have been incorporated into the remaining rods and units. The bigger of the former 9th and 13.GBr were discharged from responsibility for the training of soldiers and non-commissioned officers (in the 11.GBr since the end of 1965). The training of soldiers took place now in the GAR 11 Eisenach and GAR-12 Rudolstadt. The training of non-commissioned officers carried out under the responsibility of the command of the border troops (KGT) Potsdam and Glöwen, from 1973 to the US-VI in Perleberg.
