Black motorpool PLt Sarge I think we called him Budda. I sold my VW Bug to a e-5 dork after me and 7 other guys went to a Nazarath concert. On the way back I blew the engine. Just after I sold it the guys threw it half way into a dumpster. Just remember one guy Goodbird or something like that. A few miles out was our local downrange we would go on alert and bug out there. Thank God we never had the ballon go up. Lots of stuff to remember.

Thursday, 4. March 2010 20:45 Host:  was a journeyman 12B at JB from 1985 – 1987, most of it in CC Rock 1st platoon then in MCM.Good to see CC Rock well represented on this board, especially Sgt. Shick (I’m still sorry to this day the cadre made you carry that heavy rock for my goof-up at PCT in 1986). I remember Willey, Maestas, Grobusch, and was hoping to find Romer and the others.Gotta say 1986 was an incredible year for me in 1st platoon – we did PCT then got that luxury guard duty in Garmisch. Hope to hear from the rest of you.

I’m Dirk Sullivan or you might remember me as SGT Sullivan I was at Johnson Barracks from 80-82 E Company AVLB crew. We had some good times together. I have many great memories while at Johnson and it was most definitely some of the best times of my life. I had to pull out the old pics to remember some of the names. I will try to post some of these pics on the site. Some of the AVLB gang you might remember? SFC Moske, SGT Felts, SSG Herman, SGT Gomez, SGT Dugger, PVT Rysavy, PFC Eddy, PVT Rivera? Others I can’t remember since my memory is fading, sorry. Studies show that good German beer does help reduce memory loss. Drink more beer!!! I say ” PROST” to my old buddies from Johnson!!! You guys ROCK!

That was a good time in my life also. I have oftened wanted to go back and see that place again, sorry to hear it has been destroyed.

Friday, 3. July 2009 14:28 Host: I was stationed at Johnson Barracks in Company B in 1959-1960. We all had a great time there. It is almost 50 years ago. It doesn’t seem possible. At that time it was the 24th Engineer Battalion. I was with Company B. Our platoon Sergeant was Sgt. Washington We were using M-1 Rifles at that time. Check out my picture of the M-1 Rife Inspection on our bunks. The commander of the battalion at that time was Lt. Col. Pearse. We nick named him (Axe Handle) because carried an axe handle instead of a swagger stick. We set a record at that time for building and crossing the Danube with a pontoon bridge (1 hr and 29 minutes) I wonder if that record is still standing. It doesn’t seem possible that Johnson Barracks is no long there. I don’t remember any canals on Schwabacker Strasse.
Does anyone remember the beer garden bar in back of Johnson Barracks on the way to the main PX. We called it the garden. Does anyone know when they built canals on Schwabacker. I don’t remember and canals maybe my memory is failing. This is a great site. It brings back a lot of memories.Mike G.:
I enjoyed your pictures, I was stationed at Johnson Barracks from ’77 – ’79 and then again from ’82 – ’85. I believe the canal was started in the mid-sixties and finished in the early seventies. Take Care –

Wednesday, 1. July 2009 08:08 IP: Thought it might be interesting to relate how I found this site. Last year Dec’08-Jan’09 my wife & I were backpacking in N.Vietnam on the Chinese border. Riding on a local bus loaded with about 100 Vietnamese was 1 other foreigner, he was my age, German & born & raised in Zirndorf right beside Pinder Bks. I told him I was at JB 1976-79 & he knew it well. He used to go to Open House during Ger-American Days back then. He took a room in the same hotel & for the next 2 days he & I talked about Furth, Nbg & JB & he told stories how JB was gone, Pinder too although they left the orig. gate standing, the Darby Housing Area was now apts & other stuff. Patrizier Beer was bought-out by Tucher although Das Gute Zirndorfer is still going. He said his favorite fussball club today was near the old PX site & we discussed where it was but the only one I could recall was in the Housing Area which you’d pass when taking the back way shortcut to the Main PX from JB. I remember stopping in there once to collect the deckel. Before we parted he dug in his pack & gave me a souvenir matchbox that read PX Sport Club Furth. When I got down to Hanoi I went to the Search Engine, typed in Johnson Bks & found this site. Small world, huh?Catherineniol:

His name is William and he went by Bill or Billy. He was dating my mom at the time. She is a native of Nuremberg who was working in Dambach. Her name is Hannelore, Honey, and had long red hair. If anyone remembers them, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Simms was my first roomie, remember good times with Big Dave, Zebley, Yang, Lackowitz…still trying to remember them all. I also had an apartment above the nude sauna in Seukendorf for a short time. Thought my wife at the time was coming to Germany, thought wrong. LOL Got the Tucher runs a few times from too many trips accross the street. Anyone got a knot? I got a soda can with some holes in it. Sure do wish I could get some Salvator or some Untern Biebert. Sunk my truck to the axels once dropping fuel to water point.

Thursday, 30. April 2009 23:06 IP:  I was in C Company with Randy Norris, Dan Flanders, Clyde Strickland among others from 7/77-7/79. Does anyone remember O’Brien (he was either Irish or English) who worked in R & U, and if you do, whatever happened to him? Randy Norris is the only one that I have been in touch with, and I heard once from Don Bebo, Rick Wright and a couple of others from the company for that time frame. Hope to hear from some of you. Cheers!Stan, Medics 77-79:
He was English. I know this because he would wander over to the dispensary and bug John McDade who is Irish. They would have the most funniest arguments.Mark Ballance:

Do you by chance know whatever happened to O’Brien? He always wanted me to go to the U.K. with him and visit his family. I regret that I didn’t go with him; he was such a blast. He used to call me Ballie.

There also was a Spec 5, rather tall individual with blonde hair and slender, who was a medic in the battalion. I can’t remember his name. He along with a number of other medics on every monday afternoon after last formation those of us who were lucky enough to be in the fatman’s program would weigh in. He spoke up for me when a number of us would have to go in front of LtC Kouns with our weight progress. What was his name and whatever happened to him as well.

Thanks for the previous information about O’Brien.

No I do not know where O’Brien went after those days.
We had a spec 6 whose name was Linderman, Then there was Keith StAlbin.

I was reading all the posts remembering all the good times I had at JB. I turned 21 there 20 years ago! I was in C co Heavy junk, it was a sat and we sat in the room, about 8 of us, and watched movies and drank beer all day till it was time to head downtown. I remember everyone kept the caps from the longnecks in a cup and we counted them b4 we went out:).
I’ve been searching for Joe Chapman, Chris Sorenson, Troy O’neil, Charles Caudle (conan, he was a 12B). also used to run with a guy named Candelerio from HHC, real cool dude, I think his first name was Steve. All, no greater b-day present for me than to hear from any of these guys, oh yeah, Don Gillispie ( 12B) he married a thai chick in 90. If anyone has leads, email me , thanks !

Thursday, 7. August 2008 00:44 Host:  I was stationed At Johnson Barracks from 1988-91. It was without a doubt the best time I had in my Military career. Nurnberg was a beautiful place to be stationed. Does the 16th Engineer Bn. still exist? I used to eat at a little family owned restaurant named the Doozier. Best food in Germany.aaron:
i was in W O Kaserne and JB from 91-92. I wasnt an Engineer back then but am now. Yes 16th exsists after the move from Furth it went to Erlangen then to Gießen, Gießen closed and 16th is now reflagged as separated Engineer companies in 1 AD at FT. Bliss. If you ever have a chance to go back to Furth it is all but gone it is a sad moment. I live in Schweinfurt now and the days of Nurnberg, Furth, and Erlangen are distant memories for most that live in those cities.

I came across the pictures of what is happening now to Johnson Barracks and I must say, it looked like a ghosttown. Whoever was in the army and at both kasernes during those times, I would love to hear from ya’ll. I was with 240th QMS and I was in POL. My nickname was “GG”, I rode my bycycle alot, and dated the Turk named Mat who was a bus driver for Koch tour bus agency and if I wasn’t at the Paisley Pub, I was at the Yellow Rose bartending and sometimes cooking. Ring any bells? I would also like to know what happened to Erik Peterson who was also in POL and at both kasernes.

Thursday, 24. January 2008 21:28 Host:  Mark Ballance,I could be wrong, but did you not get out of the Army in ’78 or ’79 and then go back in about a year later ending up at the construction engineer outfit on main post Ft Lewis? If so I remember riding across post with (I think Joe Lazott) to say hey. I was in HQ Plt I believe. SFC Tollinger was my platoon sergeant (he’s running aroung fayetteville somewhere) and then SFC Froehle. I used to hang with Diego Estrada sometimes, then Dalton and a few others. But I’m sure I remember you.
MikeMark Ballance:

I got out of the army in July of 1979, my mother had terminal cancer and passed away one day after I got out. I did want to come back after the funeral and look around for work, but that never happened. I ETS’d due in part to Gen. Bernard Rodgers (Army Chief of Staff) & Ltc. Darrel Koons (16th EB Cdr) persicution of those of us who were considered over-weight. I had to wait for two years if I wanted to reenlist. By that time I had such a chip on my shoulder it wasn’t funny. But you know, I really have some great memories of the C company, 16th EB, JB, Fuerth, Nuermberg, W. Germany, & the rest. Anyway…have you kept in contact with any of the other men in the company or any of the others at JB? It is good to hear from you, hope all is well…& Catamounts forever!Mark:
Ok, now I think I got you. I think I even have a pic somewheres of the Bertchesgaden retreat volksmarch. I ought to dig it out. I know you were at the retreat.Mark:
Yes, most definately. That retreat was unbelieveable. Capt (Father) Berry was the battalion chaplin. That man had a wicked sense of humour.

Do you or does anyone know the where abouts of SSG Harry Wilmot, he too was on that retreat. I cannot for the life of me remember which platoon he was in. And how about SSG Clifford Westburg; I can only imagine that alot of these guys have passed on.

As Bob Hope said/sang at the end of his shows: “Thanks, for the memories…”

Last time I saw SSG Wilmot (who was my squad leader in ’78) was in 1984 in Wildflicken and he mentioned he was going to retire in about a year, that was the last.Mark Ballance:

Did SSG Wilmot ever mention what state he was from, or where he was going to retire to? I lost contact with him about a year after I left the army.

Wednesday, 23. January 2008 20:05 Host:  Did two tours at J.B. 77-79 and 82-85, the first tour was the best (was single).
Was in C company the first time and A company the last. There were good and bad times, but it was all a learning experience. I see the old pics and am glad I did the time, even with the motor pool guard duty, graf, hoenfels, wildflicken, alerts…. Went on a cool trip to Bertchesgaden in ’78 with some with a few of the guys in Aco.Take CareMark Ballance:
Mike, in C company, what platoon were you in. I’m really trying to place you. I found some of my pictures, but it but not as many as I would have liked to have hung on to.

I talked and emailed Randy Norris and he jarred some of my brain cells loose about JB, Fuerth, Nuernberg, etc, etc, etc…

Well, anyway, give me a shout or send an email; will catch up with you then. Cheers!

Saturday, 22. December 2007 04:30 Host: Hey Bebo, I just found this site & have been reliving old days at JB. What a trip to see photos of old friends. I’m Lester the Fester, was in HHC from ’77-’79, S4 driver, 1st the jeep, then Dufield’s TMP after he ETS’d, & later on the M577A1. Recall good times with you. Once we were at the German-US beer fest, you were picking on an MP calling him Fish-head. Soon the whole table was hollering at the MPs who came over at fest end & kicked ass. Everyone got away but me who was too wasted so I spent night in Darby jail. Plenty of partying with Norwood, Steiner, Boatwright, Latusek, Libby, Ross, etc. Once a bunch of us went up to party on the canal, carved our names on the railing of the bridge, I went back to JB in ’82 & the names were still there, inc. yours. Don’t often think of those days so it’s been fun reliving them. No doubt, the 16th was an animal house wild never-ending party, likely never repeated again.Don Bebo Sacramento CA.:
Hey Lester, How are ya? I told Norwood about this web site and that you sent an e-mail. He said to tell you Hello. If you send me an e-mail i will give you his ph.# my e-mail is Norwood is still in Denver CO. We had some good time’s in Germany Talk to ya later, D. Bebomynameisgoor:
You are not right.

georgie whats up?Johnny Chestnut:
Hello. You probably don’t remember me. I was in S-4, HHC from May 1987-May 1989. I worked for SFC Davis in the Ammo section. I lived on the second floor near the exit closest to the chow hall. My room mates changes a couple of times. They were, Duval, Cox, Davis and Townsend. You, Lamaster and Chris Massey were already there when I arrived. I found this site on Johnson Barracks. Its strange how I wanted to leave that place when I was 18 and now I wish I could go back and relive it. Well anyway it was cool to see you guys in the pictures. Take care.Jim Lamaster:
Hey Johnny, whats going on. Long time. Here is my email i would love to hear from you.

Saturday, 1. December 2007 12:05 Host:  hey boys i was at johnson barracks from 76-79. Randy do you remember the first days we got there and me you and clyde painted our room?Randy Norris Go Buckeyes!:
I’ll never forget those first days as newbies or anything else we did at JB. Had to coax the base paint from supply, (but we had connections, right?)and then tint it to that blue color we decided on. Over thirty years ago, and still have great memories. Like, Led Zeppelin – who you convinced me is the only band that matters. And knowing that you and Clyde were the best drivers/friends in the battalion who I could call on anytime to go anywhere.Mark Ballance:
Hay Dan, do you remember bridge ex ’77 and the company holding up in a little town named Vonfurt? A lot more memories I have tucked away in the back of my demented little mind. Randy Norris and I talked back in I believe July. The last time I saw you, you were heading back to Danville, VA; how did you end up in Albany, NY? It’s great to see you’re still alive and kickin’. Cheers!Mark Ballance:
By-the-way, have either you or Randy Norris heard from Clyde Strickland? Do you have his email address or phone number?jeff:
check clyde strickland is listed there. look under 16th engineer battalion

Thursday, 15. November 2007 18:41 Host:  I was just thinking about the army and the good and bad times I had at Johnson Barracks so I searched for Furth Germany and to my surprise found this site. I was stationed there from 81-83 in Echo Company. I was a mechanic in their motor pool. Sgt. Spellman was our motor sargent he was the biggest #%*$-hole you could ever meet. Right as I was leaving in August of 83, he became the Battalion cwo in charge of all the motor pools. Im sure even all the engineers in E. company remember Spellman. He rode this one puerto rican so hard he flipped out one day in the field and would have killed Spellman had it not been for about four men holding him down. I remember a Helicopter coming in and taking him away that was the last we saw of him I dont remember his name but some of the people I do like Bill Burns,Neal Moore, Ray cerie, Joe brofy,Ernie White, Mike stone just to name a few. It would be nice to hear from someone I knew back then and oh yes I remember the PT runs down the canal.
