Daddy passed in 89 and is buried a few graves down at Ft Bragg from another Pinder Barracks friend and co-worker, CSM Haywood Pugh who passed a few months after my father. I was 13 years old when we left furth headed for Ft Sill and didn’t pay as much attention as I now wish I had. I can’t tell you all how much this site and your photos mean to our family! My 15 year old son is very into the military and history. I wish his Grandpa were here to tell all the stories and some of the things he was involved in.

Monday, 14. December 2009 05:32 Host:  Was at Pinder from Oct 90 to Sep 91. Assigned to SVC 2/1. Roomed with Sam Hartwig from Arkansas. Went to Desert Storm and was reassigned to Fort Carson, Colorado when heavy “disbanding” was happening. Remember the Zirndorfer’s and the best food ever. Found the old bomb shelter behind the barracks. (dug out entrance) Trying to get to the lower levels for the fabled secret passages was fun also. Volksmarches just about every weekend exploring the countryside. (The free mugs/glasses after the walks still decorate my kitchen) Got tatoo at Eddies in Nurnberg. (color still bright) So many memories not enough space. I recall this website being started some 10-12 years ago and it is great to see the overwhelming response to a part of all of our lives we will certainly not forget and that we are proud of. Hope to get back to the beautiful countryside with my family some day. Hope all of you certainly have found everything that you have ever wanted in life.

We woke up and started drinking Zirndorfers. We started lowering things down to the room just below us on a string, and they would send something back. This went on most of the day. So many great memories from Pinder, I will never forget.john singleton:

We were lead to believe these shallow lakes were drained periodically to be used as emergency air strips.
True or false, that is good stuff.
I like to say something about First Sgt. Steele and Capt. Ronald S, Bullard here, but I won’t.
Hello to Sally, Otto (sorry to hear about Gonyo), Mark B., Gonzo, and many others.

Good friends, good times.Tom Van Horn and I arrived together. We met in Small Arms Repair School at Aberdeen Proving Grounds and realized that we were both gun nuts. We requested assignment to the same unit. He rotated home about two weeks before I did in ’77. He and I still keep in touch.I remember being on duty one night (as duty driver?) with Sgt. Ackerman as CQ. We talked most of the night about guns and ammo, long past when his eyes glazed over. Also remember the legendary Pinochle games in the shop office.Anybody remember 1SG Ackles? One of the most abrasive personalities I’ve ever met. I think I was one of maybe three people in the company that got along with him. To this day I have no idea what put me on his good side.If anyone remembers me, give a holler.Alfred Gonzalez:
I remember you we used to work together I was in the small arms repair shop so how it going hope your doing good.Mark Bourisaw:
i was there in 76 to 77(156th maint co).what great times!!I remember Sgt Ackerman and Ackles, they treated me good,so all was well. St louis,MoDebraniog:

Sunday, 5. July 2009 18:48 IP:  What a great site. I accidently ran across it a while back.I was stationed at 156th Maint Co at the back of Pinder 72-75 and got caught up in the 90 day extension due to the fuel crisis of 75.I have kept up with Ray Burt (retired in Kentucky), but not with anyone else. He use to play guitar with Fred Holloway and “The Heavy Country” band. I remember when the “pot heads” turned up their music in the barracks and Burt hooked his amp to his 30″ speaker and actually had them begging for him to turn it down. They promised to keep theirs at a more reasonable volume in the future.We had a lot of shop parties that I remember the first hour or so of since we often had so much to drink that no one knew what happened next.Those were good years that allowed me to meet some great people and travel all over Germany.”Mobile Repair”Joe Clark:
Barb Newby,

I saw the pictures you posted. I will look up some of mine and post them too. Great to see you again. Great memories.

Joe ClarkBarb Newby:
Nice to hear from you. I bet you were surprised to see your picture on here. Had you heard that SSG Phillips and Joette Clover had passed away? So sad…
I keep in touch with Louise Murdock, John Tucker, Tim Hartney and George Dale. George is coming to visit me the end of July, haven’t seen him since I left in 1975! I’ll tell him you signed the guest book here.
How is your family Joe?
That would be great if you have some picture to post on here of the good old days at the 156th! I’ll look forward to it!

Email me your address and phone number if you would (and when a good time to call if I can). It would be great to get to talk with you again.

My family is doing great. I will bring you up to date in email or on the phone.

Tell George I said hello and tell him to send me his contact information too.

I did submit some of my pictures, but have not seen them on the site yet.

Great to hear from you.btEMAXMBUrNVrftYP:

I have responded to Darren Stevens entry and am looking for others who were there at the time. Frequented The Green Goose, anyone remember a beautiful tall blonde girl named Silkie? How about Club Ponderosa, 2 sweethearts there named Gabby and Sylvia, or the artist Tekla (went by tequilla)? If you walked from Pinder downtown there was a nice gasthaus ran by 2 Canadian girls, anyone remember the name of it or them? I pooled my paycheck with Bruce Lipes once and had a free drink party for all of our friends, I think it was when he was shipping out, though I don’t really remember to tell you the truth. Above all else though I remember Dawn Daigle. If anyone see’s tell her I wish her well. Pinder may be gone but never forgotten. Drop a line if you know me, know them, or know anything about what I’m talking about. Thanks.James Urban:

Tuesday, 5. May 2009 19:04 Host:  Hi to all that served at Pinder..My husband and I were stationed in Zirndorf from April of 1968 to Dec. of 1968..It has been so long ago, that I don’t remember the Bat he was with, but I believe it was the 16th Artillery..All I do remember, is he worked on the honest John rockets and that we had some wonderful friends over there..I guess I am just trying to reach back in time.
His name was James B. Johnson and mine is Linda..We had 2 small boys named Jimmy and Johnny
For all those who knew Jimmy and befriended him, I thank you, but it was hard not to be his friend, he was a very likable person..Jimmy died in Viet Nam in May of 1969, nearly 40 years ago, but I would like to say hi to some of the people that Jimmy and I knew over there..2 I remember the most, was Willie Bell and Jerry Greene, also his Sgt, which had a strange know I am not going to spell it correctly, but it was like SOC-A-BE-SON..something like that anyway..
I have a picture of Jimmy posted on my page on myspace..Just follow my homepage link and you will see it..
Thank you all for starting this page and thanks for reading my message..God Bless you all and God Bless this great country of ours..Linda Jim Keller:
Hello Linda,
I was just leaving in May of 68. I was in the 16th Artillery B battery when I left there. I was a clerk for Captain Montgomery, befor that I was a clerk for LTC Compton,and SGM Darrell Claybaugh. I do barely remember your husband, but can’t say that I knew much about him, since I lived off Post. Sorry I couldn’t have been more help.

Ahh Pinder…no finer place to spend a couple years with totally unchecked bipolar issues. Somehow I made it, although it seems quite surreal to me now. The hash probably had something to do with that.
I remember Sgt. Rick “thrills and spills” Mills. The Royal Order of Good ol’ Boys; AKA Dan Morris,Joe Doucette, Jay Addy, Paul Yarnell, Tim Rice and Johnny Vargas (hey, disco still sucks!). I think Joe MacShan was in the mix as well. There was that creepy “Aqualung” dude in town. Various musicians I jammed with. Hey Lt. Nesbitt…are you still playing that Les Paul I sold you?
Anyway, life is good. Stay tuned for my website “Talago Guitars” to open this summer. And remember; if you’re not laughing, the joke’s on you. Be Good!
Hey Dan I’ve been looking for Joe Doucette. Any info on him?
yea those were some good times.I talk to Otto once in a while. and a few others. Tim HartneyTim Hartney:
Hey wasn’t that Tim Rice from Il. who slugged it out in the hallway with some smaller dude from W.Va. They took turns hitting each other in the jaw until Rice shattered the smaller guys jaw. Tim HDan Talago:
Tim Rice was from MO. He was a pretty mellow soul. He lived in Zirndorf with his wife and kids. I doubt he”d hit anyone like that, even if they were from WV.
Doucette was last known to be functioning as a biologist in the jungles of Boston. That was 25 years ago. Morris is in Iowa somewhere. Don’t know about the rest.
James Crea…are you out there?

Saturday, 18. April 2009 13:32 Host:  My name is John Starkey, I was stationed at Pinder Barracks with the 556 Ord Maint Co. from 1948 – 1950. After my arrival and getting my gear stored away the first thing I wanted to do was explore Zirndorf which I did and had the time fo my life!!WOW!What a place,How lucky can a guy get!Later that fall I was fortunate to be selected to attend an Ord Maint Supply School at Eschwege, Germany for enlisted personnel. Lucky me, I managed to graduate and get back to Zirdorf the day before Christmas.The next year I was invited to a week of full paid expenses of R & R at Berchtesgaden.I don’t have any idea of how that came about, but I sure was happy over it and really enjoyed myself immensely.Another one of my favorite places, other than Zirndorf was, Leichendorf, a small village close by (via-back gate (hole in fence).Over time I became well acquainted with the owner/proprietors, Ludwig and Maia Weisskkoph, also their Mother.Some of the names of fellows I remember were; George Weaver, Fillpot, Shaw, Antone Rodegues, SPC Alicandri, SPC Willim Vaas, Lt Horne and Cpl Gist, Truck driver.

I was a radio operator. I pulled many
shifts in the radio room at the end of the hall from the offices. Also spent time in the “War room” down stairs. Interesting stuff. Anyone else in radio while at Pinder. I heard that the radio room was dismantled shortly after I left. True? From pictures and
reports from the web sight it looks like
a lot has been changed since 68. It was
a fun place to be stationed. Downtown Zirdorff was a fun place too!

We met at Pinder Barracks in 1982. He was the Battalion Commander of 6/14th. FA. We married there, it was the best time of our lives. We always cherished the memories of the wonderful people we knew, and were thankful for finding each other at Pinder Barracks, Zirndorf. WARBONNETS!Wayne Helbert:
Dear Mrs. Skirvin, so sorry to hear of the passing of the Col. I worked in the Battalion S1 and fondly recall Col. Skirvin. Here is a salute to him – “Warbonnets Sir.”LTC(Ret) Bob Rivas:
Mrs Skirvin,
Sorry to hear about COL Skirvin’s passing. I was with 6/14 FA from 80 to 82, but left for Bamberg just prior to his taking command. I also met my wife at Pinder- we were married in 1981. It was some of the best times of our lives. God Bless.Barry Hillen:
Dear Mrs Skirvin, sorry for your loss, the COL was a fine soldier! First met CPT Skirvin at Schofield Barracks in 1974 2/11FA and then again at Fort Hood, Texas in 1981. Lastly I had the pleasure of serving with him again at Pinder Barracks in 1984. May God Bless Mim and Keep Him!

Sunday, 28. December 2008 23:33 Host:  I was stationed a Pinder Barracks from March 1954 to June 1955 originally with the 43 DIV. Our 1st day there, we had an ALERT. We had not been issued any equipment yet, so they told us to cool it in the Barracks until they came back. (Needless to say , we obeyed orders!)The 43 DIV. was there originally.They shipped back to the states and were replaced by the 9th Div. I was with Fox Co., 3rd Platoon, 2nd Battalion, 39th Inf. Reg., 9th Div. Captian Bannister was our C.O. BIG John Landers was our 1st Sargeant. When you come in the front gate, you pass under the tower and if you look to your right across the parade field, you could see Fox CO. barracks all the way across the back of the field. The 1st Battalion was stationed in Nuremburg area. We took our field training at Hoenfels area.This was during the 1950s COLD WAR period.
We were involved in many field training exercises, The biggest one was “WEST WIND”.This involved thousands of NATO troops along with us.
I loved the German beer, The Weiner Snitzel, the German girls, Oh,and did I mention the BEER! We used to swim in the pool behind the Motor Pool. Damn,that water was cold. (I was a 20 year man! TWO years IN and eighteen years OUT.)I’d like to go back some day, to see all the changes that have occurred since then. (Don’t forget to write if find work)()zwSxXjopkaottCQQu:

Tuesday, 28. October 2008 16:15 Host:  Wow! I just found this site and the memories of Pinder just flooded back. I was stationed there from 87-90. A member of Bravo Btr 1/22 then 2/1. GO BULLS!!!!! I started in Sgt. Ellis’ section with Flowers, Brownlee, Latimore, Benevides and Schull. When Ellis left Sgt Tomlinson took over. Does anyone remember him always called us Shitbirds. Left his section to drive for Cpt Beckinger and then Cpt. Mangus.This is amazing. One memory that I will never lose is the first time I drove through the gates of Pinder in Oct of 87. It was a beautiful fall day. I really loved that place.Mike McCann

Dear Jerry maybe you know who my dad is! His name is David Davila or something like and was 23 at the time and called himself a new yorican! My moms name was Debbie tully or nissen at the time and she was 16/17 at the time. My mom said Ted hung out with my dad she believed! Please tell me you know who he is or anything about him! Thank you JasminTed Dickerson:
Hi Jerry, I hope all is well with you and Family. You were a lot of fun to be around back then. Things got a lille crazy at times but we always pulled through.

Friday, 17. October 2008 10:46 IP:  What a trip down memory lane! I just discovered this site and reviewed the entire guestbook. I was stationed at Pinder from ’81 thru ’85. Started in HHB 6/14FA FDC and ended up B Btry FDC Chief. Memory is getting foggier as time goes on, but things I do remember: Elli’s bar and Elli herself, REFORGER’s through the German countryside, BLACK Friday and the “Peyote Platoon”, Christmas time in Nurenberg, Paters (sp)resturant out past Leichendorf which had the best Cordon Bleu I have still ever had. And how about the “Lark Hill Gun Run”? I was back in 91-93, but stationed at Wildflecken. Thanks for bringing all these wonderful PINDER memories back. Ted Dickerson:
Hi Russ, I too was stationed with FDC HHB 6/14th and then got transferred to B btry FDC. You may remember my short timers table in the FDC room on the third floor. I left in 1980

Sunday, 12. October 2008 20:26 IP:  My wife and I just got back from a tour through Europe, including three nights in Zirndorf. We stayed at the Gastatte Pension Bub, which I highly recommend. I was stationed at Pinder, with HHB 1st Armored Div. Artillery, from 6/74 to 1/76 (although I spent a few months of that time assigned to post admin.). The town’s changed a lot, for the better. What hasn’t changed is Zirndorfer. I knocked one back my first night there, and it was every bit as good as I remembered it.

Wednesday, 1. October 2008 16:35 IP:  It was great finding this website it brought back a lot of memories. I was stationed at Pinder barracks from 7/74 to 12/76 in the 156 Miant. Co., I worked at the AK in the computer vans. Some of the best memories I have in life happen there with some of the best friends I could have met. I’m not good remembering names but thanks to this guestbook I had it jarred a little, there was Lt Murphy the officer in charge of the AK at first the came Lt Basher, Sgt Siggers, Sgt Starcher, Sgt Stevens, Bob, Capporoccio (Cap), Rick Mull, Cindy Gilsen, Joette Clover, and if Tim Hartney is who I think he is his wife came over and they used to live off post with their kids where we used to watch Saturday Night Live at when it first came out at least and Ron Ackerman I probably know to because he mentioned key punch cards. Some of the best beer I ever had Zirndorfer and some of the worst Tucher which the sold in the soda machines. The pizza was greasey but it hit the spot, concerts and all kinds of other things. Have to go now but I wish you all well and I’ll be back to this website hoping to see more and hear from some of you.

I was in S-2 72-75 and worked with Steve Hoskins and Doug LittleJohn. Lt. Mulligan and Lt. Drake were the supervisors in S-2. Also remember SFC Lugo. Kept in touch with Baca, Hopson, Fragoso, Harnois, Rachels, Perkins, Saukkola and others over the years. Remember alot of good times as Pinder Barracks was a trip. Pizza’s from outside the gate were the best. Hebert always wondered what happened to you..I remember you working in the mail room and then being transferred..I think one of our Btry commanders was Christensen, and Lander was the Bn commander. Supply Sgt. was a Italian guy named Rocenelli. Hope you all are well Veryl Sievers:
Hi John, I was in the Survey Section of HHB and I remember most of the guys you mentioned. SFC Lugo was our Chief until he transfered to S2. Remember Cpt Wyatt and SSG Bronco & Burgess. Just found this site and it’s bringing back many good memories. What a great time we had.

Monday, 18. August 2008 13:43 IP:  Thanks for a great site & bringing back great memories! Thanks to Mary, my ex, for getting me here.We were at Pinder from 1974-77, 156th
Maint Co. I worked in the shop office
for asome great guys: Jim Pfau, Jim ? “Pop” Graham. Played A LOT of pinocle at lunch with Pop & Jim! I may have been the guy who put the extra keypunch cards in the dumpster  It had to be a direct order to do so, eek!We had a Lt Knox that was hard to deal with. Was buds with a guy from Ohio, ??? Capparucio who had a really nice 65 289 blue Mustang. I’m a car guy and still am. Now into American Motors products – Javelins & Hornets)We
had a brown Austin Mini Cooper, bright green Opel Manta with black stripes, a white 70 Opel GT, 2 64 VW’s (bought parts from Wild Bill who is listed on this site) and a blue 62 Mercedes 220 S Sedan that we sold just before we left.Great times at Ellie’s and the gasthouse out behind Pinder. We lived
on Fiendelvieesen sp? Strasse in Nurnberg and I took the Steetcar into Pinder until we got our 1st car. Went to a great Gasthouse outside the gate at Darby also + the ones in downtown Nurnberg especially the Nurnberger Bratwurst House!What great people, food, beer & times
we had! Would love to here from anyone else from the 156th from 74-77.Henry Steadman:
Ron, I don’t know if you remember me Henry Steadman. I worked in the supply room with Rick Tabor, and Red the supply Sgt. I was there from 75 – 77. That was the best assigment I had in the Army. I remember Lt Knox, he was the supply officer for awhile. I have so many good memories of that
i used to hang with john [cap] capparucio and his wife donna who worked up in the orderly room. he had a volkswagon bug he would dirt race in nurmberg.cap was my roommate for a while. did you play on our soft ball team with sgt. reddish? who can forget the championship game where he walked in 13 runs and we lost the game ha.ha. from tim hartneyJoe Clark:

I do remember you and the electronic shop at Pinder. I remember Lt Knox and his ways too. I was at Pinder and the 156th from 72-75. I do recall Ray Burt, Mr Krause, Capparucio and others. Those were great years. I did get stuck as the training and re-enlistment NCO for a while, but tried to make the best of it. The Pinnocle games there were classic. It is hard to see that you stayed in the Army and made 1SG. I got out in 77 and moved back home in SC to get my kids to know their grandparents. The maintenance shop parties (those I can remember) were great when we all chipped in and had a great big blow-out. Great to hear from you guys.

The first stop was the Underground bar called the Hattskeller, I believe. We’d sit down there and drink tripple bock and shoot the shit. Then We’d all stroll around and end up walking the wall. How bout those ten Mark beers in the sexbars? Always ended up in the Komm center by the German American hotel. Remember the Kris kringle marts in the castle square? Jasmin Misener:

He was stationed at the pinderbarracks in either 78/79 to 81 or 82 but I’m not real sure and I believe his name was spelled David Davila or something like that! He called himself a newyorican cuz he was puerto rican! My moms name is Debbie and she was 16/17 at the time and my dad was 25! My mom believes he was Divarty at the time! So if anyone has ANY information it would be greatly appreciated! I need to catch him up on 27 years of my life plus its been my wish since I can remember! Plus if he is reading this I want to meet him and Im not mad at him! I just want him to be a part of my life!Ted:

In 1965, when COSTAR II came about, the 71st Maint Bn (DS) opened a Tech Supply and 3rd echelon repair facility there. I helped set up the Editor section in the Tech Supply. A bunch of us from Co. D in Merrell Bks were trucked to Pinder to help set up the Tech Supply in Aug and Sep of 1965. I did two tours in the Nurnberg Area and enjoyed both of them.

Used to be the S-3 driver for the 577 and we used to jam on the walkman to Van Halen and Joe’s Garage while going down the autobahn. Pizza at the front gate was the best, Zirndorfer was great also…

I was then transferred to B Btry 6/14th FA till 1980. I PCSed to Ft. Campbell with the 101st Airborne and came back to Germany in 1982 to finish my last year at Darby Kaserne with HHB 1/94thFA. I have recently been in contact with a lot of guys especially from Pinder. If anyone knows of the whereabouts of Dean Rossi please let me know. How I miss the old days at the Pizzeria and the rock bar. Take care for now write back Mark Ballance:
Ted, if you are the same Ted Dickerson I remember, you played rugby for the Nuernberg Rugby Football Club with Lt. David McNaughton, Sgt. David Sullivan, Maj. Sterling Lewis, and the list goes on. Have you by chance heard from any of our old club members? Remember the trip you, Frank Demonte, and I made to Munich on the train to play a match when Munich RFC and Augsburg RFC played. Some fun times were had especially after the matches. Anyway, you can find some of my entries at the Johnson Barracks site. I have two email addresses: & Pincus:
I remember you! I was there 5/77-5/80 with 6/14 A and then SVC btry. Hope all has been well with you! 1LT. Richard Pincus.
My regular email addy is rdpincus@msn.comTed Dickerson:
Hi Mark, I think that I do remember You. It’s been so long. I still keep in touch with Frank Demonte as well as others from back in the day. I miss the old rugby beer parties. I believe that I have a photo of all of us before heading to Munich. I wish I could get in touch with Dave McNauton.Richard Pincus:
Hello Sir, I must admit that My memory isn’t what it used to be. Did You play Rugby with us? I was in FDC B btry 6/14. Do You remember Dave McNaughton? I would really like to hear from him or drop a line to him. Hope all is well with You and Yours.Mark Ballance:
Ted, I lost contact with almost all of our club within a couple of months of leaving W.Germany. I did however continued playing for a local club here in St. Louis, MO (St. Louis Rebels that merged with the St. Louis Highlanders forming the St. Louis Raiders) for about three more years until my doctor made me quit due in part to my knees. I have been searching high and low for the members of our old club and you are the first one I have come in contact with. Those were some wild-ass parties we had after the matches, weren’t they? Should you talk to or email any of our old team mates, pass my information along to them. Maybe someday when we are in the vacinity of each other we might try to see the other. Anyway you take care of yourself my friend, and hope to heare from you soon. Cheers!

At that time I was transferred to the Public Affairs Office where I worked until 1962. I vividly remember when USAREUR Headquarters called an alert on New Years Eve and had all units move to their assigned alert positions. We ruined a lot of vehicles that night. I also remember polishing the hallways in the headquarters building before inspections.
Would like to hear from anybody who was there during that time.

Sunday, 18. May 2008 14:26 Host:  Hi to all ex Pinder soldiers. I was in A Battery 6/14 (later then 6/1) Field Artillery from Aug 85 until Jul 93 ranked from PFC (85) to SSG (93) spent time on the gunline, special weapons and as NBC NCO. I really enjoyed and also miss those Pinder Barracks years. Although I still live in Zirndorf near Pinder, it’s still not the same. I was pretty much amazed to see how many people still remember their Pinder years and also state that they miss it.(dating back to the early 50’s) A lot of which(almost 70%) still remember the pizza shack Sorry guys! Got bad news for ya; that shack no longer exists, but the good news is: the guy who owned it has his own little pizza place now to the right of the gate guard house. His name is Cosmo. Pinder is now home to a lot of homes, a school, some small stores, and city offices. The gate guard house and the entrance tower still remain and are under historical landmark protection. If any one would like to or need any further information about Pinder, Zirndorf or Nürnberg feel free to ask. and for any one one who knew me i’d be glad to hear from you.God speed and take careDon Kintzle:
Hey Don, I got your email and have responded to it. Great to finally catch up with you!

Lot’s of good times there…das gute Zirndorfer, flip-tops at Graf, gama goat road racing / swimming (they really do float!), weekend road trips in my ’59 VW, hearing “SHORT” echo down the halls from some happy SOB. But there probably aren’t many who would trade the experiences we had. Even when some 2nd louie accidentally (???) called a fire mission on our coordinates at Graf…that was a little excitement.Bill (Fish):
Hey, Just an update. I ordered a Pinder Barracks T-Shirt thru this site. It arrived in the US mail, very good quality and I will be ordering a few more for friends / family who all want one. Good deal, good fast sevice…thanks

Friday, 9. May 2008 08:41 IP:  I was at Pinder from July ’68 to Dec. ’70. I was with the 2/16th in both A and B battery. I’m glad I found this web site, but sad to see that the old PINDER is no longer. I remember all the good times there, and yes there where some. I also remember the HONEST JOHN rocket that was out front. I still have pictures of it. I would love to hear from any one that was there at that time.

Who can forget those Green Goose Specials? Or should I say remember? I lived in room 213 with Paul Consavage and a few other crazy guys. If you were there, you know what I mean. Hello to everybody. I can’t remember all your names.
Take care everyone.
