Fonzie and the Happy Days Crew Visit U.S. Bases in West Germany to Say—Well—Tanks a Lot
The Army in turn put on a show of its own: a mock battle starring its new M-1 tank. "If they're shooting real ammunition, I'll get the hell out of the way," cracked actor Anson (Potsie) Williams, who knows from armor. His wife is actress Lorrie Mahaffey, whose dad is CO of the Third Infantry Division near Würzburg. In fact, the reason the Army guarded the cast so closely and declared a "yellow alert" was less from concern for Winkler's safety than fear that terrorists might attack Lorrie.
Toward tour's end the group was helicoptered to the East German border near Coburg, where they peered across the fenced, mined and watchtowered frontier in wonder. An officer solemnly told them not to "wave or point or shout. Something small can provoke something big." In a cheerier sense, the TV visitors had done just that for a lot of homesick Americans. Seeing their heroes up close was, as one Army medic put it, "the best possible tonic."
