Ing. Pál Csáky was born on March 21, 1956 in Šahy. He studied at the Faculty of Chemical Technology of the University of Pardubice. Here he also successfully finished his studies in June 1980. In September of the same year he entered the compulsory military service in chemical battalion in Liberec. After several weeks, he was redeployed to the First Czechoslovak Tank Regiment in Strašice, where he served as a commander of the chemical exploration platoon. In December 1980 he became a witness of the alert followed by departing of soldiers armed with combat technology from their garrison within the action called Krkonoše. The soldiers left, but he, according to an order, stayed with other approximately forty soldiers to guard the barracks. However, after few days, without any notice, the tanks returned and Pál Csáky came to know that they were near the Polish borders, waiting in action stations to receive a command of border-crossing. After all, this hadn´t happened.
