  1. I was stationed there in ‘68 and ‘69 when we were the 24th Combat Engineering battalion, 4th Armored division.

    Great memories … ‘tho Grafonver (sp?) was interesting when the Russians went into Prague in August ‘68. We were all busy.

  2. I was in the 16th, 1st ACo, then CCo after I made E-4. From Oct 76 to Nov 79, JB was home. Met a lot of great guys and have many good memories.
    SP4 Seamen and myself built the Castle just inside the gate, in front of the building that hosted the Laundry turn-in, Snack Bar, Movie theater and the in-door Recreation. This is where I met my current wife of 42 years in Dec 1976. Sorry to see it has been torn down. Glad not to have to go to Reforger or Guard duty @ Hoff anymore!

  3. was station there 1959 to 1961 it was a old Germen artillery base before we took it over down the rd. from the base was under ground bunkers were they kept ammo & shells

  4. I was at the Johnson Barracks from 7/1971 – 8/1972. I also went to barracks in Ansbach for awhile to do some parking lot and other repairs with my Payloader bucket loader. Don’t remember alot my time their or people I served with. I have pictures I up loaded to the Johnson Barracks web site.

  5. I was stationed at Johnson Barracks from 1978-1980 with the 42d Medical Company(Amb). Any one know what became of the 42d? Any know what became of Mike Spears, chuck elder, terry wesley, Denise O’Bryan to name a few. Great Time in Nuremberg!!!!

  6. The 16th started at JB in late summer of 71. prior to that it was 24 Engrs 4 AD.

  7. Lots of great memories of the 16th engineer battalion. I remember when we would go to the PX and someone would say hi my wife would as “who is that “? I’d say I don’t know, they must be in the unit. As one of 26 cooks in a 1000 man battalion everyone knows the cooks but there’s no way you could know everyone in the battalion….lol

  8. You’re seeing the engineer brigade moved in 1992 to Bamberg. I was stationed there in 1991 where we took over the barracks for the engineers because they moved prior to 1992. It’s been many years ago and I did 21 years in the army I can’t remember the unit without looking at my military records but it was a quartermaster unit

  9. From looking at page 9 of Johnson Barracks things sure have changed. All the GI’s that were stationed there sure remember a different Johnson Barracks. The place is totally different. Not a thing is the same as it was.

    If you were to go by there today, you wouldn’t know where you were at.
