Klaus and I were the best of friends at Ft. Knox Armor OCS, Class of 10-67. He was the brightest among us and had an unfailing sense of humor. Though he graduated among the top of his class he did not receive a security clearance and, therefore, was not commissioned as he should have been. As Klaus told me, the Army held that his birth father was a Stuka pilot that had been shot down during the Battle of Stalingrad - months before Klaus was even born - and some 25 years later was still presumed to be a prisoner of war of the Russians though German military records listed him as KIA. Because of that and, although he was adopted by a US Army officer while still an infant, the Army held his loyalty might be compromised. Klaus was the best of the best. He is missed by his fellow OC classmates.
