Monday, 22. February 2010 20:58 Host:  I was assigned to the 371 AIB in Jan 1955-Dec 1957 when the unit moved to Worms, Germany.I was first assigned to Delta Company as an infantry man. The Company Commander was Capt Mohler who was a WWII battle field commissioned officer. The XO was a West Point Grad Lt Bringham.I was sent to the Ordinance Supply NCO school and being the only PFC in the class, shoveled a lot of snow during the breaks. Upon returning to the unit I was assigned to the HHC S4 section as the ordinance supply clerk. I later became the chief clerk and then the Asst Battalion supply Sgt. In the S4 section I worked for CWO Reynolds & BN supply Sgt SFC Briggs.I extended for 6 months to help the unit move to Worms.Many a happy memory from Merrill Barracks. I think it’s the best place I was ever assigned.Of note: Seventeen years later I was assigned to the 2nd ACR 1st Sqdn at Bindlach (as a CWO) and the Regimental HQ was at Merrill Barracks.My Son and I visited Germany in May 2009 and I did a memory lane visit to Nurnberg. Nothing is the same, but my memories are of the good times I had while assigned to Merrill Barracks.

Tuesday, 12. January 2010 16:09 Host:  Was stationed with A btry 3/17FA from Oct76 to Jan82. Was on SSG Sanders gun for the first couple months. Moved to the Ammo section under Sgt Shaw for awhile. Then moved to Special Weapons under Sgt Bobby Finger. Stayed in special weapons, becomiing squad ldr until the fall of 81 when I became Bn special weapons NCO/ S-2 clerk. I was with A btry in Graf when a bad fuze caused a premature detenation and blew the muzzle brake and 4′ of the barrel off. Remember Range Control calling on the net that only 5 rounds impacted and the commander (I think it was Cpt McKenty) calling back and asking if Range Control had seen the muzzle brake impact. The best times I remember are at Nicko’s and the fests. Though the pizzas from across the street really hit the spot.Cleveland Lewis (Unk ):
Hey Yates – this is Cleveland form A-btry commo section. I remember all the section chiefs you mentioned. How about Top Faulk? My commo shop was next to your SW shop downstairs. Some of the other guys that I remember are Sedevy, Grimm, Wyatt and Sgt. Jasper. Do you remember the driving course at Hienberg and the good times at the Dutsendike? It’s good to see someone on the site from the unit.

I don’t know if anyone knows but they teared down a big part of the old buildings. They build a huge Furniture Store and a Parking Garage.
If anyone wants to know more, I can also send pictures.

Thursday, 26. November 2009 23:04 Host:  Great memories of the Barracks! Was there in 68-69, transfered from 66th HEM in Kitzingen. Was assigned to the supply room in the basement with a usually missing LT. Spent most of my time in the day room with the fusball table over looking the parade grounds or listening to Petula. Shared a room with “Smitty” and he loved everything Petula. GREAT, GREAT memories…..

My ex-father-in-law was Terrible Terry Trobough, Regimental Command Sergeant Major, for those that remember him. He is still kicking outside of Ft. Riley, KS and doing really well. Miss the good times we had back then and the good people.Brian Walker:

Friday, 13. November 2009 15:34 IP:  I was a medic with HHB 3/5th FA in Merrell from Feb 1984-Jul 85, assigned to Alpha Battery. They say “you can’t go home again” and that saying is true. I returned to Nurnberg 20 years to the day I left, to drop someone off at the airport(My unit was supporting a big exercise in Graf, summer of 05). I guess I expected things to look the same, of course it didn’t. Driving around still brought back old memories though, especially when I drove to an ex-girlfriend’s house, my heart still raced like it did 20 years before but, I didn’t knock on her door(somethings are best left in your memories). Merrell and Nurnberg will always hold a place in my heart and mind.

Got busted for Hash and moved to the shop. I moved over to shop supply after that. Remember the screens on the 2nd floor (shop) of the messhall? Bob Nesvenski and I but them in one summer. I went down to the NCR 500 vans and did stock until my final job as the training NCO. I worked in the chapel after I was busted. I was married in the chapel 1980. The Frau’s family still there and so is Merrell but it is nowhere the hotel it used to be.Barbaranioa:

I would like to say hi to FSGT Dougee, John (Jack) Hoffman, Stan Layhew, Ray Salinas, Kirk Kuykenall, Jack Stewart, Fred Kasten, Kevin Cass, and especially my good friends Gene Gomez, David Lavers,and Charles Womack who I think of often. There are many more of you but not enough room to mention everyone. I hope to visit Nurnberg next year during my travels. :-)Cecil Simpson:

I met up with Hoffman years later when he was the Commandant at Redstone. I remeber Gomez Womack Nomad. I remeber we used to call them No No, Wo Wo and Go Go.

Sunday, 31. May 2009 14:44 Host:  Hi everyone was wondering if anyone remembers me I was with the 182nd Maint co 77-79Ken Snyder:
I remember you! Somewhere I have a picture of you helping me paint my room with Steve Kidwell. I can’t seem to find any of the pictures right now, I’ll have to look harder. I’ve lost contact with everyone from that time =( Somewhere I even have one of those Company pictures with everyone in it. I’ve been back to Merrell once since I’ve been out of the Army. The last time was about a year and a half ago. They’ve torn down the old LEM shop. What a loss! The shop that I worked in use to be the Officer’s Mess. The celing had a hand stained depiction of the Old City with all of the major land marks on it. I remember finding it one day while buffing the wooden floors while, I just happened to look up in an expression of disgust and being facinated with this discovery. Apperently no one else had taken the time to check out the what had been above them all of these years. You could barely make it out through all of the nicotine smoke stains. The majority of my time was spent on the 3rd floor corner room but, my last 8 months I got bumped from room to room. Sleazy Pete’s is still there. On my last visit I was taking a picture of the front gate, I changed views to get a picture of the old pizza place. When I got to a place where I could review my pictures was when I noticed the owner standing out in front of the place actually flipping me off! I laughed pretty hard at that. I’m sure that his location is no longer the money maker that it once was. There are no lines of stoned GI’s gobbling up his mediocre pies!

I was kind of hoping I could go inside the building, but that was not possible. Spent the rest of the day in the old city eating bratwurst, ginger cookies, and seeing the sights. Remember the castle, the dungeon, and those impressive churches? Fortunately, that all looked the same and reminded me of how much fun we had thirty years ago.

We had great times at SF.
Tina Turner, Billy Joel, etc. concerts, and the Noris 200 Miles of Nuernberg Car Races.
Paul got really pissed off (he had three German Shepherds), which failed “police academy”, Xenia, Xaro, and Xealia.”
Xenia developed a “love” for my then 11 year old son, and wouldn’t follow Paul’s commands. She followed him, David everywhere.
The 34 Towers were not meant as prisoner cells for “Allied Prisoners” i.e. Churchill, Stalin, the Queen, Roosevet, etc. They (4) were power stations for the floodlights. The rest were for the “EM” Swine, I mean You’ve got 120K guys drinking all night in Nuernberg, they have got to P**s somewhere.
But, where with the exception of 4, for Officers reserved toilets; they had seats.

One guy I’m still lookin for because he still owes me ya doin “Gazebo” HaHa. There is a bunch of guys I’d love to hear from and times I’ll NEVER forget. I’ll go back some day.
do they let anybody go and visit Merrell today? Me and a few guys had the room with the window that everyone would leave the barracks from “sneak out” Alot of guys we never even knew, they just would knock on the window and we would let them in. back door kind thing.
Love this site.Doug Schnider:
I tried getting in through the front gate but it is pretty tightly controlled. It is an immigration holding area, so understandable.
However, last September I walkedthe front of Merrell down by the corner where the Theater and Snack bar were (both still there but in disarray) There is an opening and I walked right on in the back way.Made it to the front exit gate before I was questioned and had to leave. Told them I didn’t know I couldn’t enter from where I did because it wasn’t marked. When I explained I was stationed there (73-74) they actually looked the other way and let me walk out the front gate. So, I would say if you just want to sit and look you probably could sit in that corner by the Theater all day long as that part of Merrell isn’t in use. Good luck.

Reforger I was my worst nightmare! Never have I been so cold and miserable. Was with 66th HEM, searching the backroads for jeeps and tanks that found themselves in a snow bank or with a track thrown. Was able to convince the sarge that I was the best choice to take care of the tents, keep the pot bellies full of fuel (even if I had to steal it) and maintaining the C-ration inventory. No more frozen hands and feet in the middle of the night. Best part was I got to trade for the “ration choice of the day” and kept my favorites to myself. Never knew there was that much snow on the ground anywhere!

Shortly after arrival an Artillery soldier found a BMW motorcycle in an underground motor pool, got it up in parts via a ventilation shaft and drove it around Nurnberg. Said there were 9 motorcycles (3 w/sidecars), light trucks & halftracks at that place. Also remember the 13 1/2 steel beer can antenna our guys designed and put on top of Regimental HQ Bldg; it gave first time ever direct FM contact with 2d Squadron. Equipment included 26D rigs, even an old 26C. Great bunch of soldiers who worked very hard and could always be counted on to do their jobs and solve sudden problems in an innovative way.

Friday, 8. August 2008 08:49 Host:  I was a dependent whose husband was in the 84th Engineers stationed in Nurnberg from 1983-1985. I lived there from the end of ’84 to the end of ’85. I seem to remember that we lived in Nurnberg until around April of 85 or so, then moved to Bayreuth for some reason. The guys had a barracks there, but we traveled to Bindlach to go to the post, etc. At least, I think I remember it this way!I posted the above last summer, neglected to put in that my husband was James Warner. I remember we hung out with Tom & Sandy Maxwell, Robert & Debbie Fuller, and Joe & Manu Salas.

it never occurred to me what a historic building we were housed in. i’ve surely forgotten names, but i remember one young man coming into the room i shared with him, and 2 others. he had a pistol and shot the hell out of those walls. drunk as a skunk on that fine german beer. and remember the weinerwald for roast chicken. delicious! great memories…but i surely hated going out for field manouvers, especially in the winter.Larry Galaske:

I was in the message center as message center clerk, then went to S1 as distribution clerk, classicied courier and printed the news paper and classified material. I think I remember you. I worked the 12/24 also along with Steve Martin, Butch, Auggie, etc. Also there was a guy from Tx who played the 12 string guitar who could type on the RTT’s faster than anyone I’d ever seen.

Wednesday, 2. July 2008 22:49 Host:  😎 I was at the 182nd maint. co in 1974 – 1975. I was in the Generator dept. I remember Jim Gray,”Cucumber” Culbetson, “Big”Jim Reid, Sgt. Bedwell, Mata, Sgt Hahn from Motor pool(got a ide on his Harley, Steven Metcalf, Adami(mail Clerk), Mike Brown, Mike Gardner, Tim Jannzen, Effy Fausu, Kevin Purcell, Company Commander – Capt Phillips then Capt Raimondi. I lived off post in a “party” apt. I rented an apt with Mike Brown and a few other guys off and on. I dated a girl named Ulrike Hartmann. I should have married her. Does anybody have any infomation about Ulrike Hartmann? She lived with her parents and an older sister near the Bahnhof – I used to go on “Sunday drives” in the county with her family. She started dating a guy named McDonald after I left. I think it was Doug McDonald and he had a twin brother also in the 182nd. My Step brother and his friend visited me in Nurenburg, They were long hairs from “the world”.They partied with everyone. I will never forget “New Years Eve”. Fireworks everywhere and cheap. Firing rockets down the hallways of the barracks, pissing off the CQ.Ken Snyder:
I must have gotten there just after you left. I took over the mail room from Metcalf just before he ETS’ed I delivered “Goldie” Hahn’s Harley parts to him after he got them back from the chromer in the states. WOW! these are some names that I’ve not heard in quite some time. I was there from 77-79 and love the whole tour! I can’t help you with the location of anyone but, I can tell you that Sleezy Pete’s Pizza just across from the main gate is still there, saw it just a year and a half ago!! I was taking a picture of the old Bks and, then I changed directions towards Sleezy Pete’s, when I reviewed the pictures I noticed the owner was standing outside flipping me off. I tell you I laughed pretty hard when I saw that!!

I remember one time SSG Peterson said, “I don’t care what you guys call me”, so Murphey started calling him sweet daddy pete. Pretty funny at the time. I remember that Sgt Peterson was the manager of the NCO club too. SFC Millard was my platoon Sgt. He seemed kind of strict to me at the time but looking back I have a hell of a lot of respect for him.I’ll never forget the burgers at the PX annex. You could eat one of those and then taste it all day. Burger King had nothin on them. I remember the Pizza stand across the street too, we used to call it Sleazy Pete’s. You could get a pretty good pizza back then for five marks. Ah, such fond memories of the food.

Sunday, 23. March 2008 08:18 Host:  What a great site! I was in HHT 2ACR, Commo, from 1975-1976, Merrell Barracks. Spent many a nite at Cafe Schmidt, Mario’s, and the Beer Fests. I was buddies with Roy Parker, Quigley, Ward, Adair, Manny, Van Burton, Smitty, and so many others. Does anyone remember when Epstein dove in the Dykes and broke his neck? He had to wear a bodycast from the waist up for a long time. I was in the tent Commo pitched on New Years Eve 1975 outside Headquarters. We all got smashed, passed out, and someone stole the tent from over us. What a great time! If anyone has the HHT Company picture from 1975, I sure would appreciate getting a copy. Hope to hear from all the Old Dragoons!Gary Zoet:
May have run into you at Mario’s. I was there most nights. I was in ACT 2d ACR from 73-77

Monday, 17. March 2008 06:00 IP:  Hello,Was there from March of 80 to Sept of 81.
I used to coach softball down at the housing complex.I was a mechanic with HHB 3/17. Our CO was Captain Moore and the 1st was I do not remember but I think it started with a G. Ran into him working on the IG team at Foot Hood. Hung aroud with a guy name David Miller. Commo Sergeant was SSG Posie. And the names of Hal, Timothy and Bruce seem to righ a bell.Oh and attend a Baptist Church. We started on Furth and then moved to the economy. The pastors name was Luther ??I do remeber we had a piolt in our church who led the music. And we had a civilian who had three daughters who could really sing.And more comes back the more I write–The church also had Colonel Billingisly and Wiseman–who had two good looking daughters. One who I ran into many years later dating a fried of mine from high school. My friend called me on the phone and said he had a surprise for me. Its a small world.And on the soft ball team was a girl named Rita Dodge–seems she has sister named Angela–no Angela was our catcher.Ran into Rita and her family years later at Fort Hood.And there was Courtney and Larissa Lewis–I think their father was Colone Lewis of the ACR–never came to a game–We also had a good mess sergeant. I can remember if we got back late from a mission and missed chow he would whip some up. Did not matter what time of the night.David Miller:
Was David Miller from Hawaii??? At David. Do you remeber trying to fix a head gasket on your car. Do you remeber painting the church???
