    While the United States was busy gathering intelligence on the Soviets and other communist nations through reconnaissance, spying and other measures, the country also had to guard against counterintelligence. Counterintelligence is the detection of espionage, sabotage, treason, sedition, subversion, disloyalty and disaffection. The Air Force’s Office of Special Investigation, or OSI, was instrumental in conducting many counterintelligence operations. The OSI is an investigative branch of the service, modeled much like the FBI. Unlike other service members, OSI agents often wear plain clothes. During the Cold War stand-off, the OSI concentrated on defensive efforts - identifying and stopping spies - to protect the Air Force from espionage and other threats. Berlin in particular was a center of spy activity. Look at the OSI exhibit in the Cold War Gallery to learn more about their mission and how it worked not only during the Cold War, but how it is still in use today.
