ID:	586386a link on same. These units were numerous. The chart is from 1982.

    This issue was a professional concern of mine at one time, without going into too many details that do not belong here.

    Obscure in the sense that most here are not familiar with it.

    More can be found here:

    USA 6941st Guard Battalion
    This unit was for the U.S. Army Berlin Brigade. The attachment is useful for those too young readily to know what all of this has meant to some of us.

    Most interesting. I never realised some of these foreign units were raised so late. Thank you.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks. With the Vietnam War in the 1960s, and then the Mansfield Amendment and such to force more of the defense burden on European allies in NATO and on and on, the U.S. Congress put a cap on the troop level in Europe. As U.S. forces were reduced in the middle and late 1960s, this measure led to the use of civilians to fill especially rear area and logistical roles, in this case Germans in a support role and eventually in conjunction with the Bw.
    Ergo the rise of these units in the 1970s, as well as in the glorious formative period say from 1946 until the early 1950s. I do not know if the BAOR had something similar. U.S. forces were once a major presence in West Germany, but for young people on both sides of the Atlantic such a thing is one of fading memory and the headlines give little hint of what once existed.

    Mr. Mint encloses a page from West Berlin, where there is some organized nostalgia and generalized interest in the military forces that once existed when the city was divided. Long ago and very far away.

    Any ideas on who manufactured the various patches and insignia for the US Labor Service and Guard uniforms?
