I was electronics repairman stationed in
    HQ company 1967 to 1969. I lived off post
    in high rise apartments in Erlangen with
    my new bride at the time (July 1967)
    Finding this site was the highlight of my
    day. Keep up the good work.


  3. “Third Heard” Troop B 1/1 CAV. Jan ’73 to July ’76. Left as commander of Brovo Three Six. What an incredible flood of memories and emotions came with the discovery of this site. Platoon Sgt was SFC Garry Foster. Lt. Kloecker was an Assbag. Best mess Sgt was Sgt Becky and his crew. Room mates were Gary Pearcy and Jesse Christensen.
    Paul & Marieanne(SP?)Childers, Steve Hawkins, “Ranger” Welch, George Kirshner, R.D. Frankeberger and so many more. I miss you guys. I miss the smell of Sheridans in the winter. I miss the day the arbutrator seal fell out of Three Two and the fireball in the turret when I fired the gun. I miss Akins always going so damn fast I couldn’t read the map. I miss little German kids getting us beer when we were on manuvers. I miss the snowball fight we got into with a bunch of German kids at a railhead starting back from the border. I miss “twenty cent chunks”. I miss Toucher & Leederbrau. I miss Brother Reiley getting real drunk down town and then listining to several hour of fire and brimstone sermons after he got back. I miss the night I got pukin’ sick on Boones Farm Concord Grape wine and puked out our window and down the front of the building. That big purple stripe was still on the front of the building when I left. I miss Volksmarches with Gary, Jesse, Hawkeye, Shorteye and The Ranger. I miss Mikes Pizza. He must have retired a millionare. Thanks for all the memories. Steve

  7. Hallo all, we need your support please!

    My sister, Joen born in 1965, and me, Mark born in 1969 from Germany / Fürth-Nürnberg, we are looking for any informations about our Dad’s. When we were children, our mother told us only the best about our Dad’s, but nothing concretly. We know that she loved our Dad’s very strong, she never had another love all her life. To talk about this was very painful for her, so we stopped to ask since we were very young. Our wonderful mother, Lisa, died last year. God bless her!
    Now, we need your help!
    Our Dad’s Name are:
    Oliver Barry Flash and David Johnson, they was stationed at William-O. Darby Kaserne from 1964 to 1972. We would like to have any information what happened and if they died in Vietnam.
    Do anybody know something, or someone who was stationed at this time?
    Can you give us information which US-office we can asked for?
    We hope to get any answers and thank you all for your understanding.

    God bless you all.
    Best regards, Joen and Mark.

  8. I was stationed at WODK from early 1968 to April 1970 with the 182 LEM, (signal platoon) I believe I have done more than my fair share contributing to the German economy in the form of Marks for Beer! Ich habe Deutschland sehr viel genossen, der Army nicht so viel! Vielen dank mein sussen freudinnen.

  9. I was in Erlangen from December 1962 until December of 1964 in the 4th Armored infantry division. I drove the army personel carrier for the company comander.
