    1. Hi Michael. I was there February 1973 to August 1975. 42nd Maintenance Co. Jack Olsen

      1. What section did you work in? I was there from 1974-76 and worked in the shop office area. Then I went to work at the Cannibilization site at Johnson Barracks.

    2. I was there at the exact same time..127th AG, between Signal Corps and CID.
      GREAT memories.

  4. When were you there. I’m not a vet but a dependent who has happy memories from being in Germany, MANY MANY years ago. I think you took some pics of family housing, 3 story apt with dormers. I used to roller skate in the attic, with the dormers.

  5. I was never stationed at Darby but was on the kaserne many times. It had the main PX with all the dealerships. Main Commissary and the likes. It was about 7 or 8 miles from where I was stationed.

    1. I was there in 73 to 76. Love it. Wish they had published a album of us.
