Herzo Base was built in the 1930’s as an airfield for the German Air Force called the Luftwaffe.  Their mission was to train pilots for the Luftwaffe.

At the end of World War Two the ASA moved into the kaserne in 1947.

The kaserne is no longer open.  The place was turned back over to the German Government.  Most of the older buildings have been torn down.

This part of the website is being built to provide  former and present military personnel and their dependents that were once stationed at Herzo Base at Herzogenaurach, Germany a place to get in contact with each other, their German friends and share their comments and  photos.   Herzogenaurach residents and the people of the surrounding area are welcome also.

“Herzo Base may be gone, but we can keep it alive with our stories, photos and by sharing our memories”

  1. I am the daughter of someone stationed at Herzo Base sometime around 1963. He got his discharge that year to return to Missouri, USA, to join my German-born mother, who had flown on ahead to meet his family, carrying me. I would be so grateful to communicate with anyone who knew my father back then. His last name is Pugh.

  2. Enjoyed Herzo’s hospitality and many little towns along the border. I remember working hard , but playing hard as well. Fond memories there and with the many ASA soldiers I had the privilege to know and work with. 64-67 Staff Sarg Jim Chrz

  3. I was stationed at Herzo from May 1964 to July 1967. Worked with computers. We never knew from one moment to the next if we’d still be alive, as the Russians had our base zeroed in.
