Being the newsest 2Lt I got the duty and was reassigned to HQ CO 371st AIB at Merrill Bks. I lived in the BOQ at 215 RegensbergerStrasse. I believe if my memory serves me, Capt.

Habt Ihr mittlerweile etwas rausbekommen über den Vater Deines Freundes? Uns hat man eine Telefonnummer in Mannheim gegeben, wo man eventuell herausbekommen kann, wohin sein Vater nach der Zeit in Erlangen gegangen ist. Hier ist: 0621/7306045. Ich hatte noch keine Möglichkeit dort anzurufen.

Viel Glück Euch weiterhin.

Names like Barkey, Krisky, Hayman, Alred, Norris, Lucero, and Zimmerman come to mind. Other faces are there, but I’ll have to think a little more to remember their names. One name I’ll never forget was Sgt. Hughes, who made my life miserable. At the time, I thought that he simply hated people from Chicago, but I have learned a lot since then (I hope).Those years shaped my life. (I met my first wife in Nuremberg. She gave me two fine sons before she went to heaven in 1984.)I would be happy to correspond with anyone who knows anything about the history of Merrell Barracks, particularly the tunnels or the 1945 takeover.Doug Schnider 569th PSC:

Saturday, 1. December 2007 15:49 Host:  My name is John Logan, and was a PFC. assigned the 53 Ordnance Co. which was a direct support company to the 2nd ACR. I was stationed at Merrell Barracks from 1960 to 1963. Anybody that was stationed there, certainly came away with the feeling that they were living in a place of profound historical value — a never ending curiosity that lives with me to this day. We were right there to witness some of Hitler’s failed mole like military tactics, which was more than prevalent at Merrell. Using two 5 ton wreckers, we uncapped two extremely large heavy metal plates in the motor pool area . We were amazed to find an underground motor pool, complete with various types of WW 2 tactical vehicles, to include motorcycles, Lt. pc’s and a halftrack left undisturbed since the end of the war. There were bricked up passage ways leading from the motor pool in more that one direction that was rumored to have gone as far as Soldiers Field — a fairly elaborate escape plan for the time! From there, our find led to the discovery of several underground passage ways, and even an underground shooting range. Around the time we were devising plans to further our search, our discoveries were getting the attention of the higher command — and that any further attempts to continue would be met with severe disciplinary action. Well, that was the end of that. This is one story out of many reasons that Merrell Barracks had to be one of the most interesting places on earth to be stationed.Jerry Page:
I am Jerry Page I was a welder in the service section of the 53rd from July 62 to oct 64 Sargent Jones an ex marine was are section leader and I remember something about those tunnels. We used to dump our unauthorized tools in them before a GI inspection. Were you a wrecker driver?

Spc Horne sounds familiar as does Warbosse and Vasquez. The AK is what our section was called too. Other names are Wayne Perry, Lance Forbs (Mouse), Wayne Bolley (might have misspelled that one) was the Mess Sgt.

I was stationed there with the 502M MI Co, 2nd ACR from Dec. 87 until we returned from DESERT STORM and PCS’d to VHFS, Va in Aug. 91. From our rotations to Graf, to the border camps and Mt Schneeberg, and recovery at the Irish Pub, The Green Goose, and the Nashville club across town I’d have to say it was great holding down the fort there for four years!Spc. Joey Wagoner, GSR:
Hey! I think i know you! I was with the 502nd M.I. from 1989 -1992 (the border, desert storm) I was with GSR. Man- hearing the names of those clubs really brings back the memories!

Clapp and LTC Petrowsky. What a great website! This brought back a flood of memories. Anyone remember when Maj. Burns flipped his huey in the winter of ’85 I still have pics of that in my photo albums. Loved going in to ‘burg on the weekends…Green Goose, The Rock House..etc. How many of you out there rode the UBAHN without paying…I still have outstanding tickets I remember going to Graf in ’85 and in less than a week our unit managed to destroy the “safe training” record…with the vehicle battery exploding in a mechanics face, a civilian tech-rep walking into the tail-rotor of a cobra and an OH-58 catching fire while in flight..and who could ever forget CSM Carmichael and 1SG Ray…those guys cracked me up. I would love to hear from some of my fellow soldiers from “back in the day” :-)D. “shake n bake” Baker:
Hey Greg!
You probably don’t remember me, but I remember you. I was 2ACR – 2CAS ’84 to ’86. We met on the afternoon when you were driving LTC Petrowsky around on FAAF, and I didn’t notice him, and forgot to salute! a mistake! I was also in that Huey with Burns as it landed. All 4 of us walked away from it, even the crew-chief (1st name was Lee I think) who broke his ankle. I also remember the civ on the ammo pad against the Cobra at Graf, and LIVED! and how ’bout CW2 Miscoe? what an idiot! Remember the picture of his Cobra, in flight, and firing ALL 2.75 rockets off at the same time?! and Carmichael and “bulldog” Ray! didn’t we all wish them… nothing!

Staggering back at 2 in the morning, tripping on the cobblestones with the front gate guard laughing his butt off. I remember going to the air field to fly border missions. Most of all I remember playing “hacky sack” in the desert during desert storm next to the mine field with Larry Rewis, Buc Taylor, Derrick Officer, Steve Stohl, Ed Vick, Ray Kelly, Jim Stuart, Mark St.Clair, and Bill Sargent. Never forget that “machine gun” Andy Rea drove his hummer between an M1 abrams and a T64 shooting at each other during the ground conflict. If you ain’t Cav you ain’t ….

The pizza shack across the street sucked out loud. We never did manage to sneak into the locked stairwells leading down below basement level, but we did sneak into the attic, and saw roughly one million dead pigeons. Anyway Nuremburg rocks!

Wednesday, 8. August 2007 14:59 Host:  I was Public Information Officer for the 2nd ACR at Merrell Barracks from March 1974 until May 1976, when I PCSed to the United States and left the Army. I snuck back into the Kaserne in 1996 on a detour from a business trip to Egypt and even visited my old office next to the 2nd ACR conference room and museum. What a great assignment it was! We even had a radio show on AFN Nurnberg called “Hit the Leather and Ride!” started by my old friend Doc Buhner. It looks to me like the Germans are getting ready to tear down the Kaserne, if they already haven’t done it. Too bad, as it was a monument to history–both World War II and the Cold War. My late father in law was in one of the units that took Nurnberg in WWII, so it may have been some of his men who machine gunned the entrance! Small world. One of my prized possessions is a cobblestone I took from the 2nd Cav area during that 1996 visit. Oh, and Gen. Tommy Franks, then Capt. Tommy Franks, was the S-3 when I was with 2nd ACR HQ.Matt Troxell:

July 2007 16:13 IP:  I was stationed at HHB 3/17 From 1981 to 1982, I loved Nurenberg, the Tanza Cafe, Cobra Bar, The great concerts in the summer, The pizza Shack across from the Barracks, and having clothes made by the fat man. Would love to hear from some old running buddies, Brad Krause, Larry Baker, Mark Clark, just to name a few… Holler!Honorio Reynolds:
Yo What’s up Texas Slim…
My name is Honorio Reynolds, I was stationed at HHB 3/17th Commo Section (RATT!), from 82-84. As a matter of fact Brad Krause was my first room mate, and Ratt rigg partner. Haven’t heard from anyone over the years, but hope that they are all doing well.David Schulze:
I was with HHB from March of 80 to Sept of 81. I do not remember you but I do remeber the Pizza Shack. I am sitting in Kabul, Afghanistan dreaming of a good pizza. I ran across this site because I am trying to find the physical address of the barracks. I guess I could try Nurnberg Museums.

Monday, 25. June 2007 00:09 IP:  Gangster Hotel was my first tour of duty after AIT. I arrived in Jan 1985. Assigned to the 614th maint co motor pool as a generator mechanic. SGT Gates, SGT Lumpkin, SPC Green, SGT Kelly, Crazy Jeff form NC, SPC Lindsey, my room mate SPC Tavares and SPC Vicent Jennings are a few names I remember. I bought pizza almost every night directly accross the street for the main gate and listened to Sade’s Smooth Operator. I remember the mark rate go to 3 marks to the dollar. The Dusendikes, the Green Goose, the Wall, gusthouse’s, and the NCO club bring back awesome memories. Remember Fasha season right before October fest? I had lots of friends from 507th, 182nd (SGT Carrol), HQ, and other Kaserne’s. Paid lots of fines on the u-bon subway, and came in 2nd place at the USAREUR star search talen contest. Remember Reforger? I went to the Amberg detachment (Pond Barracks)near Graf in Nov of 85 until Dec of 86. Those were some of the best times of my life. Comrades, drop me a line, auf Wiedersehen.Darrell Lawrence:
Actually, I think you were next door to the Motor Pool, which is where I was at that time. You had a Warrant Officer as your boss, right? You guys did machine work?

On the other side of us was the Generator shops.

Friday, 15. June 2007 13:23 IP:  My first duty station after AIT, I was with Headquarters & Headquareters Troop, 2nd Armored Cav. I was the assistant troop clerk from July 196 – August 1969, at which time I was reassigned to Vietnam.
Colonels Baldwin and Allen were the regimental commanders. Joe Foglio was the regimental Sergeant Major. Troop commenders during my tour were CPT Willard Hatch, CPT Myron O. Artist, CPT Larry Taylor. William T. Story was the troop first shirt for most of my year. Pat Picciano was the troop clerk when I arrived. Frank Zack had the job when I left.
Been back to Nurnberg several times since 2000. Still a great city and the beer tent at the Volksfest is still a good place to go for a fun time, even for old dudes.
Merrell Barracks has changed considerably. Besides the remodel to the main structure the consolidated mess building is gone (as is the motor pool and other buildings) and in 2005 it appeared they were letting regimental headquarters and adjacent structures pretty much go down the tubes.R Smith:
I was there with you, SP4 Smith, regimental photog, assigned to S-1. Don Holder was the S-1 adjutant for part of my tour. Still friends and in touch with SP4 Walsh and Shrock. All the best to you.

Hey! I remember your name although I can’t make a face to it. You were there with Steve Crufts and tatoo armed Dale Smith. I was in 1st platoon the same time you were in 2nd. I went back there in `01 and most of the area where Feucht AAF is now a huge industrial park. They were about to tear down the hanger when I went there and I walked through it. It was empty and all and the platoon rooms were nasty and moldy, but the hanger itself still had the same smell. I must have saw it just before it was torn down because it was gone a year later. Don’t know if my name rings a bell with you, but I was the one that sort of got into a little trouble in Holland, Anyways, how the hell are you?Jamie Overton overtonjl@b:
Hey, I remember you. You and Osborne ran together. I am Jamie Overton. We wer in the same room. Although is seems we had about 10 people at times bunking in that room. How are things.

Monday, 26. February 2007 13:11 IP:  Does anyone remember there being floors or tunnels under the buildings that the Nazi’s had flooded. I remember them being drained while I was there with my husband. We were there 1977-1980. He was stationed at Monteith Barracks, but had a cousin at Merrell. Thanks.Joe:
I was there at the same time you were (76-79)and heard the same stories. I heard the tunnels were used to store his tanks and stuff during the war, and led right to Soldiers Field, a couple of miles away.Bonnie:
My dad was stationed in germany. we lived in pastorius in the early 70’s and to answer your question about tunnels, there was one that started in pastorius and led to the dussendikes. I know because we used to party there when we were kids.Bonnie:
We lived in pastorius in 71-72. I was 14 at the time and remember the tunnels that led from P strauss to the dikes. We had a friend that got alot of artifactes from the tunnels. shortly before 73 they filled in alot of the tunnels that led to the statium.Bob Boyce:
I was at merrell around 85′ when there was some construction going on. One of the tunnels was broken open next to the O club, so I went underground that night. I spent at least 8hrs. undergound that night. I didn’t see anything that looked like it had been flooded.
I walked at least 3 miles of tunnels that nite. It was an unforgettable journey to say the least!david counter:
i was there in 81 and my roommates and myself use to go into them to party with some local girls what memores.david foskey 89-93:
yes i do i got the chance to go as far as to the block offs under the nco club px mntshop iwas was there when it was handed back overRalph Ostrander:
Yes there was an entrance right below the battery shop they made me seal it up around april of 1979 if i can remember straight.

It was cool great big room for target practice and tunnels
I looked for nazi stuff but found none.

Take care JoseSPC Huynh, HHT, RSS (S1):
My stereo was taken away by order of 1SG Shoemaker. It was my fault because I played a song by Frank Zappa with the speakers on the window sill while S&T Troop was in formation on the quad. The song has Frank just saying, “You’re an asshole, that’s right!” over and over again. It was worth it.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba – Felix rapidly strengthened into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane and churned through the Caribbean Sea on a path toward Central America, where forecasters said it could make landfall as “potentially catastrophic” storm.
Felix was packing winds of up to 165 mph as it headed west, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. It was projected to skirt Honduras’ coastline on Tuesday before slamming into Belize on Wednesday.
“As it stands, we’re still thinking that it will be a potentially catastrophic system in the early portions of this week, Tuesday evening, possibly affecting Honduras and then toward the coast of Belize,” said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.

We always seemed to end up at the castle and the bahnhof whenever we went downtown. Barracks life in Merrell in 1969/1970 was many times “like, far out, man!” Like living in a commune with a military theme. I didn’t realize then that they were really good times.gbttown1:
Great comment Bill. Like a “commune with a military theme”. Needless to say they didn’t like us much during ’70-’72 for treating their Army in such a fashion. Peace Bro’Mike Troup—Phoenix:
I got there 12/71. Talk about dope use (hashish). Your comment was great, it really was like a commune as I think back. They began to “clean up” the drug problem around 73. What a great experience.

I served as battery commander of various units of the 3rd Bn 17th FA and as battalion S-3. We were 8″ SP howitzers then. Those were the days! I went back in 1997 and saw the Merrell Barracks remodel job and the tear-down at Darby.

He was some sort of expert on the layout and structures within. Dressed like Indiana Jones. Had long hair and a hat, leather jacket. Used to see him in the Shamrock from time to time around summer 95. Would like to contact him. I am part of an Underground group in Fürth. We explore the tunnels under the Fürth Hospital and area surrounding. Would like some info exchange. I was underground several times at Merell. Any info would be appreciated.Or::

I worked with great officers like Jim Kinzer, Roy Mault, Hans Reich, Rick Jones, Bob Loy, Randy Golonka, and Dave Tosch. It certainly didn’t look the same upon my return visit in 95.

Battery 3Bn. 17th FA from June 1980 until early 1982 when I was assigned to HHB as Motor Sergeant after an IG inspection.The inspection team deadlined nearly all of the vehicles in HHB motor pool. We were to go to Graff within a week. The mechanics and I worked until 10:00 PM every night until we left for Graff. We were able to repair every thing but one vehicle.
While in C. Batt. the Bn.Commander wanted to road march the track vehiclec to Graff. We had guns and M548’s scattered from Merrell Bks to Graff. It took me and my mechanics at least a week to get every thing to Graff. What was worse was that once we arrived at Graff, we were to go into an ARTEP. It was not goog to have only one of six guns able to fire.Delia:
Hi Gene, do you remember a Trent, Dock? He was in the motor pool too about that time?Bearl Bruffett:
I remember looking at that name tag many times Sarge. You probobly won’t remember me but I was transfered to the motor pool sometime in 1980 intil 81.
Ratt Rigg driver operator,tore up a couple of those. Remember “Q-Ball”
Actually only having one out of six guns fire wasn’t that bad. What would continiously break down my Gamma goat equipment was the “Battery fire” all six guns fireing at the same time…ya, you remember that. Then if the sheel would fire before leaving the tube….look out.

I left Germany in 1986 for Aberdeen Proving Grounds MD. I loved my time at Merrell and in Nurnberg, I would go back in a heartbeat if I could. Anyone else from the 182nd, emaIl me at Young:
Hi Jim,
I was the shop officer of the 182nd, and stationed there from 1974-1977. I wonder whatever happened to all the old unit photographs that used to be in the billets/admin area?

I was also a army brat, we lived in Pastorius from 71- late 72 do you remember the under ground tunnels that started in Pastorius, and led to the dussendikes? they were filled in right before we left because of the danger of collapse, which was bull they just didn’t want us kids to go there… had alot of great times there.Bonnie Krueger:

Thursday, 26. January 2006 19:14 Host:  :-)I was at the Gangster Hotel from 1979-1986. I was with A 3/17FA- and later A 3/5 FA. I also brought home a souvenir,which I have been married to for twentyfive years. After being stationed in many other places, none had been as memorable.
If you think you know me,drop me a line. :cool:Bearl Bruffett:
’79 until June 81
I was one floor below you (if I remember right) HHB 3/17th Como. Ya I can still smell the pizza stand across the street. Actually my room was the escape rout out of Merrell through the window. Everyone would sneak in and out. Any body remember the “Com Center” downtown, if you do you will remember what it was all about.
What a crazy place.
Anybody from HHB out there?
Buzzy, John Santos, Johnny Grover and who could ever forget “Q Ball”
Just found this site…Awesome

Saturday, 7. January 2006 13:29 Host:  I remember the ” Tag der offenen Tuer in der Merrell Baracks” which I visited as a boy when I lived in Nuernberg. As well one of our Neighbors in Nuernberg was a High Officer ( General??)the house was rented by the USA Army for him and for the fist time in my life I ate a Hamburger on a Kaiserbun which he grilled for us Children. 40 years have passed but I still fondly remember those days when we where able to get into the display tanks and the soliders where very nice to us children.
Thanks for the memories

Sunday, 18. December 2005 23:18 Host: Merrell Barracks and the town of Nürnberg was a great part of my life. Did a lot of growing up there. I was really still a kid when I entered the Army. Learned quite a bit in my three years there.Eddie:
I know what you mean John. I lived in Nürnberg for six years during the 1970s. Lived on Rollner Strasse just around the corner from the Tucher Brewery. Married a girl from there. Go back just about every year to visit her relatives.

That city is like a second home to me. Always look foward to going there.
