Dr. John E. Counts, Chief of Staff, Berlin as the Berlin Wall Fell

P1070413

Here seen on the mv Regatta during the December 2011 Panama Canal Cruise, Dr. Counts graciously took the time to fill me in on the tenor of those heady days when the Berlin Wall fell. I actually have a piece of the wall at home, so it was fascinating to hear the story from someone who was there.  Following his military service, Dr. Counts served as President of the Western New Mexico University for 18 years.
