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.
On October 26th, SFC (ret) Thomas Favia gave a briefing on USMLM to General Lieutenant Zorn and 40 officers in Stennweiller, Germany
On Saturday, 17 September 2016, the BRIXMIS Association conducted a dedication ceremony for the BRIXMIS memorial that now stands at the UK’s National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas (north of Birmingham and almost in the exact geographic center of England).
SFC (ret) Thomas Favia (USMLM 1989-1991) has volunteered to organize and conduct a third annual remembrance ceremony for Major Arthur Nicholson and Adj Chief Philippe Mariotti at the Nicholson memorial site in Techentin, near Ludwigslust, Germany.

“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.”
