  1. Hallo zusammen!
    Mein Name ist Sabine und ich bin auf der Suche nach einem Arthur James Harris (Spitzname war Lee). Er war 1991 hier in Deutschland stationiert in der 529th Ordnance Company. Viel mehr weiß ich leider nicht, nur dass er öfter mit Errol Bowen unterwegs war. Es wäre toll wenn mir jemand helfen könnte. Vielleicht hat ja jemand noch ein Foto oder kann mir sagen was aus ihm geworden ist.

    Hi, everyone!
    My name is Sabine and I am looking for an Arthur James Harris (nickname was Lee). He was stationed here in Germany in 1991 in the 529th Ordnance Company. Unfortunately, I don’t know much more, only that he was often on the road with Errol Bowen. It would be great if someone could help me. Maybe someone has a photo or can tell me what happened to it.

  2. A Co 1/46 Infantry Jan 73-Aug 74, last of the Draftees “Viet Nam Era” came accross this site, sorry to see the barracks gone. Crazy but fond memories of this time. Love to hear from anyone who would remember me, The people that can name the places we went have good memory banks!! Georges, Black Bear, Pizza Bar on and on it goes. We use to go to Forcheim to a “Disco” my last 6-8 months. (That was some fun time) Froberg, Chuck Tennant, Baker, Mike Cox, Chavez, “Flip” Rushton, Mike Kapun, were a few of the crew that I had some good times with. Thanks to SSgt Ramos and Sgt Johnston for teaching me the values at 19 years old that I still carry today. They were great.
