Not speaking for my employer either....

I was wondering, who was hired to rebuild the telephone systems in Germany
and Japan after WWII?  I don't recall AT&T being hired to install switches
in Tokyo or Berlin.
The United States Constabulary of Occupied Germany

"Wherever patrols operate, they are in constant communication by radio or
telephone with their platoon or troop headquarters, which are in turn
linked in a chain of communications reaching up to Constabulary
Headquarters. The telephone lines used by the Constabulary are, for the
most part, those of the German system, although some military lines and
equipment are available. In addition to radio and telephone, the
Constabulary is hooked up in a teletype system, which is the most
comprehensive and effective communications network operated by the United
States Army in Europe."
