RIP Belated - Colonel Dieter Wendeborn (Bundeswehr)

#1
This is an appropriate forum to post the following detail for this Bundeswehr officer.

Colonel Dieter was the CO of the International ILLRP School based during his tenure at Weingarten in Southern Germany between October 1982 > November 1992.

In that time hundreds of American students would have passed through his school on a variety of courses based on a LRRP soldier's skill requirements.

A charismatic leader by any standards. I had the honour of serving as one of the many UK instructors in those days.

He died as a result of a climbing accident on 17th. July 2009 in Austria. The inscription on his memorial near to where his accident occurred reads -

" Many ways lead to God - one of these leads over the mountains" RIP
