David Franz: I was involved in the UN Special Commission in Iraq, as well as the trilateral agreements in the former Soviet Union. And it was there that I became involved with the former weaponeers, I was a defensive anti-weaponeer from the US, in the military, in uniform. It's interesting that I ended up at that point, because I started out as a Mennonite, raised in a small Mennonite community in central Kansas, and actually, at one point, I remember being told that the military was a bad thing.
Gennadiy N. Lepeshkin: Well, I was born into a military family. My mother was a doctor, and my father was in aviation, he was a pilot. He served up north and fought in two wars, the Russo-Finnish War in 1939, and the Great Patriotic War. So, I always lived on a military base, I have two brothers and three sisters, and we were constantly mixing with military people... soldiers and officers, we played sports on their fields, and I thoroughly liked the military spirit. I worked in the city of Kirov, served in Kirov, and then I was transferred to serve in Stepnogorsk, in Kazakhstan in 1984.
