Welcome to the United States Military Liaison Mission Association website. The United States Military Liaison Mission (USMLM) has been called the most successful and productive intelligence collection organization of the Cold War era. Established following the second world war, USMLM and its members performed a dual mission: liaison between the US and Soviet military forces in a divided Germany and intelligence monitoring of Soviet forces in East Germany. Today, with many of the Mission’s operations and reports declassified, the Association’s website provides a place for members to share stories and chronicle both the mundane and heroic efforts of the Mission’s members.
SFC (ret) Thomas Favia, USMLM 1989-1991 has announced that a ceremony honoring MAJ Arthur Nicholson and Adjutant Chef Philippe Mariotti will be held 10:00 AM, Sunday, 20 March 2016, at the site of the monument to MAJ Nicholson outside Ludwigslust, Germany. This will be the third year in a row that members of the allied missions will meet to remember Nicholson and Mariotti.

“In the corner two Army counterintelligence NCOs sat at a table opposite a modest and rather scruffy young man in a black windbreaker. The incredulous looks on the sergeants’ faces, their occasional guffaws, and body language indicated stunned disbelief at the story they were hearing. Periodically they gasped at his tale. The young man was a Marine, Lance Corporal Montague, and I would never forget him.”
