During my 37 year career in the Army I served in Hawkins Barracks Oberammergau, was shipped to Germany in 1956 with the advance party of the 11 th Abn div, was at Ft Jackson with the 101st and I think the people in charge of the 11th thought I was jump qualified but I wasn’t so they assigned me to the INTMP&SW school in Ogau was there until Jul;y 1959. Served tours in Bremerhaven, Karlsruhe, Giessen, Zweibruecken, Kaiserslautern and really loved Germany, hated stateside duty, too chicken Sh for my taste.
