This home movie captures scenes of Jon Montgomery when he was stationed at Rhein-Main Air Base near Frankfurt, Germany in 1963-64. Among footage of landmarks and landscapes in Frankfurt, the base, and military check points are two notable scenes: one of U.S. Senators William Fulbright and John Sparkman arriving at the air base as representatives of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as tensions were mounting around the Berlin Wall, and another of the newspaper headline reporting the death of President John F. Kennedy in German. The cameraman held the newspaper up for the camera to document the historic event.
