  • Battleboro VT for its zoo of quite unususual animals. Included was a male albino peacock all white with ruby red eyes. A miniature deer and antelope the size of cocker spaniels and a tabby cat with heterochromatic eyes.
  • Spandau prison in Berlin, Germany. At the time, it was still occupied by Rudolf Hess, Hitler's second in command. The four military powers that governed military power in Germany after WW2 were located in different sectors of Berlin and took turns posting guards to watch over him - I pulled that duty for two weeks. There were several guard towers around the parameter, but I was assigned to the one that overlooked the area where he took his daily walks and saw him quite a few times. I didn't know anything about him at the time (I was just an 18-year-old kid who couldn't have cared less about history), but after learning how he died, my interest in history was peaked since the claims were too disbelievable. I have since delved into history deeper than many others can fathom.
