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

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.

OMG……I’d forgot about that. I was in the mess hall line when it happened.Mark Pierucki:
Harper, you didnt say if it was Chuck White from Missouri!!??Steve Harper:
Sorry, Don’t remember his first name. He was black and I thought from a big city….could be wrong. Not too popular. Had a big mouthBob Frankeberger “Frank”:
Harper and I were good friends and he kept me posted of the B Troop news from Schwabach from July 75-July 76 and I rememeber him sending me a letter about the stabbing because we both knew White. White was not well liked as I remember, but I was still shocked to hear that he or anyone else I knew had been stabbed. I don’t remember his first name, BUT in looking at my 1975 B Troop photo he is there (a PFC) with the first initial “D” (all of us in the photo are listed with first initial only before our last name.I’m pretty sure it’s him in the Troop photo I have. Bob Frankeberger “Frank” ’73-’75kevin womble:

Sunday, 24. January 2010 17:54 Host: WOW! I never knew this site existed. I’ve checked out the old barracks a couple of times on GOOGLE Earth and knew it didn’t look the same as I remembered it. Anyway, I arrived in Schwabach in March 75 I believe. I came over short, with only 18 months left in service so I went back to the real world in October 76. I loved most of my time there and have a lot of great memories. I recognize the guy in the front row center of the cook’s picture from Thanksgiving dinner 75. I was in “C” troop, 1/1 I believe. I was in the barracks directly across the street from the PX, whatever troop that was. Some guys I can remember, I think, are Dan Jimmerson from Quapaw, OK., a guy that came in the Army from the USMC by the name of Wagoner, I believe there was a SGT. Bilko if memory serves. Others will come to me, I’m sure. Anybody out there that remembers me, holler back. I was an E-5 infantry squad leader w/2 m-113’s in my squad. There is a lady that has signed the book whom I believe was married to a Conales. Well, my platoon Sgt. was Sgt. Conales and we had another guy, shorter guy with a black mustache was an E-5 Conales, also. As a matter of fact, I believe the younger Conales’ dad had served with the Plt. Sgt. Conales in ‘Nam if I’m not mistaken. So, I’ll touch base again when my memory clicks a little better. Any of my friends out there? Let me hear from you….BUCK

I was in 4th Armor, 2/4 Cav, A Trp, 1st Plt Scouts, A-11, at O’Brien Barracks May’65 to Dec’67. I have found a few other guys who were there at that time and would like to contact others.
Check out 490, 516, 527.Bob VanAntwerp:
Steve, Have you been in contact with Finn? I haven’t heard a word from him or about him, he was from Indy If I recall.Steve:
Bob, Finchly was from Indy, but couldn’t contact him. Henry Leal may have an e-mail/number for him through Dan Goetsch. Would be great to see both at the reunion.Bob VanAntwerp:
I think Dan was from Milwaukee, funny how we can remember some of this stuff… I would have thought you and Finn would have kept in contact, I know you were tight.Steve:
Henry mentioned that Dan and Ray went to Waycross together to see Bobby C, so maybe still a connect.
The plan was on Ray coming out to CA after separation, but it didn’t happen.henry:
Steve/Bob,when I reached Danny he and Finn met up with Bobby C some where in Ga.had a short visit and left.They tried to get back to him but lost contact.Danny lost touch finn also,last know location Minneapolis.bob:
I contacted George Patterson about the reunion. He said the details would be posted here in March. So I’m keeping an eye peeled. Why can’t I remember Bobby C.???? CRS when I was young maybe?

Laura, I also was in HHT 1/1 Cav from 1974 – 1979. I was a cook. I don’t remeber your dad by name, but then I was just an E5. What did your father do?Howard Bucknam:
Hi Laura,

My name is Howard Bucknam (Buck) and I just discovered this site last week and was really glad to read your comments because when I was over there from March ’75 to October ’76 I served with two Canales’! One was actually my platoon Sgt. and a younger one who was then an E-5 (Buck Sgt.) like myself. As a matter of fact, if memory serves, Plt. Sgt. Conales actually served with the younger Sgt. Conales’ dad or knew him in some way. Now, I don’t know that they were related but it was strange that both of them wound up in the same unit in Germany. I was in “C” Troop, 1/1 Cav as an infantry squad leader with two APC’s in my squad. Both Sgt. Conales’ were super guys and well liked by most everybody. I know I really enjoyed my time there with them. The younger (Sgt.) Conales actually had his driver’s license for over there and a, what else, Volkswagon and would drive us around if we needed to go somewhere if he could. It saved having to take the train or other transportation. Do you know them both and are they okay? I’d love to find out about them. Please drop a note back on the Guestbook under my entry when you get a chance. My entry is #559. Waiting to hear from you but they may not remember me, maybe, I don’t know!

Hi Tim, Thanks for your help in trying to identify the American soldier who saved a German baby in March 1968. Maybe he was NOT from the 2/4 Cav., maybe he was from another unit. If there’s anything I can do for you, please Yell! Regards, Barry ( Crook – Boulder, CO:
Hi Tim,

This is just in case- I did get your email, and filled you in on my knowledge of SGT Faulkner. I worked for him when he was 1SG of HQ Troop, as I was Troop Clerk. Anyone else out there from HHT 2/4 Cav from early’68 to August ’69, feel free to weigh in. This is a great web site.

Just found this site and saw your write on SSG Yates. I was also in 1/1 Cav, HHT but was a cook attached to B Co. I remeber Yates, a great soldier and good friend to many. I was stationed FT Riley the next time I ran into him (84-87), he was a 1st Sargeant assigned to the the 1/63 Armor, when before I left there in 87, he had been promoted to CSM and was the Battalion CSM.

I was there Jan 73-July 75, B Troop, 2nd platoon with Sgt Paz, Sgt Black, Sgt Childers (short eye) and so many more of us lowly enlisted men. (We enlisted men had all the fun though). I’ll have to round up some pics to add to the site. I began looking at this sight about 16 months ago and I have replied in a few spots mostly after Steve Harper.Great memories Steve. I just re-connected with Joe Fixl and we talk and email.He is now in South Carolina. So much more to say. I’ll save it for later.
Bob “Frank”Steve Harper:
“RD” !!!!
Do you ever see George Kirshner(SP) Good to hear you tracked down Joe. Just thinking of all the fun in Nurnburg and the week-end to Heidleburg to se Aidel(SP) and friends. I’ll have to get off my ass and post some pics on here. I don’t know if you remember Sgt Jim Kitson from the third heard, but he passed away last year. take care and stay in touch.charlie page:
Hi Bob I remember you guys, I think Black was a SP/5. I was a mechanic 73-74 . Did you known any of these guys, Max Heumann, Risk Slimp, Behanna and Biewer ?Bob Frankeberger:
I remember Max and Biewer. I went to a concert with Max and Chuck Mutton to see Led Zepplin in Nurnmberg.He and Chuck were friends. Chuck and I were roommates at the time in ’73.I actually have a pic of Max standing outside the concert venue waiting for them to open up. In those days (at least in Germany) they didn’t have designated seats. First come first serve.
BobBob Frankeberger:
Hi Steve,
George and I lost contact about 1980. We partied together from 75-80 after we got out, but we kinda of drifted apart as I was settling and slowing down a bit. He was a great friend and we enjoyed playing and watching sports alot, especially baseball. He was a little league coach too. He lived just 30 minutes away in Glendale (north of LA). He and I drove back to Indy. in the summer of ’77 to see his uncle; we stopped in on SSG Welch “Stanley” in Cincy, OH. I do remember Sgt Kitson. Do you remember he dated to the SgtMajor’s daughter. Joe Fixl told me that my gunner Bob Martin(Wink, TX)passed away last year. FYI, you and I went to see Edel in Stuttgart. I have some pics of that trip. More later.

At Graf if you were luckey , you could lay your sleeping bag out on a steel cot with springs . Looking back it was a lot of fun. When it happend it was a lot of work.

He lived. he got hit in the back . It was at Graf in 63 or 64 . We also went to Nenesloe , yes what is spelled wrong. Thanks MartyGeorge:
Martin,Martin,Martin,Are you In the cooking Sherry again???Stan Marszalek – C Troop:
I think it is spelled Giacomozzi. By Neneslo, could you mean Hohenfels? That was a training area.SP5 Fred Barry Nelson:
I arrived in B Troop in September 1966, and the story of the 50-calibre shooting was used in training. You’re right about the tough Winter duty seeming like fun when we look back.

Hey Charlie, check with V.A. on hearing aids. I had same problem and they gave me 2 $4,000 hearing aids that work great. Super small. So check in with them, fill out a one sheeter and see what they will do. Remember the Veterans administration (which has to do congresses dirty work and really suck at it) is quite different from V.A. Hospital, which REALLY trys to help the vet with minimum hassle. (not like 30 years ago) they have changed and have top notch medicine, at least here in Denver.

Hey Mike, you and I were in B Troop at the same time. I was in 1st Platoon. PSG was SFC Soto (for a while). I remember Solt, he was in 1st Plt as well.Sid Kelly:
Hey Mike–I was there ’68-’70–Could threPSG Soto be (Estoban) Steve Soto that was there in ’70?? Not a common name??Dana Pettersen:
I don’t think I remember you, but I remember Bob Solt. I got there in May of ’83 (BTrp). I became the NBC NCO then the Training NCO. Then went to Camp Pitman as permanent party. Was at Pitman till 1988.Mark Johnson (“Staff”):
I remember Solt. Didn’t know he was still there. I would have looked him up when I was in Schwabach back in October. I was a SSG. Section Leader of the 2d Platoon, B Troop 1/1 Cav Scouts.

Drove out to Ft Gordon last Friday afternoon to escort 7 buses w/ 300 troops to the airport for another tour of the ‘sandbox’ and I couldn’t help having ‘flashbacks’ to when I took Basic there in ’67.(B-3-1).These are kids!!!!!!

I was in c troop when it changed from the 4th to the 1st 70-71Steve Steffensen:
Jennie, was there same time. What troop was your dad in? I was in “A” troop at the last, but also in “B” troop when I first got there.Jennie Arnold:
I think the last unit was D troop. It was his tank that was painted pink just prior to an inspection and the Sheridans were still considered classified.Dave Parker-67-69-B Troop:
I remember the pink tank. Gary Owen (7th Cav) “stole” it and did the paint job. You were correct as they were still classified at the time. It got a lot of folks excited.Michael J. Harbin:
Jennie. I was SP/4 in HHT transportion section 2/4/cav from 1970 – 1971. My first Section sgt. was SFC Breeden .I assure you I crossed paths with your Father. I hauled fuel (JP4 – mogas)to all troops.I also hauled rations to all battlion messhalls, Troops,supplies,track parks to the moterpools. And that was home or in the field, to all boarder station we went to. I had my 18th birthday at a plce call Tennalow firing range on guard duty.

Sunday, 16. August 2009 18:27 Host:  Does anyone have any photos of the old steam locomotives that usually pulled our troop trains in 1966-68 (and that continued to be used in Germany until 1976)? I just discovered Donald Rom’s photos of the arrival of the new Sheridan tanks in 1968, and it looks like a steam engine on the train. (These photos are in a subdirector /militarygallery. Got that, troopers?)Sid Kelly:
Hey Fred–speak english–(lol) how do I/we get to this ‘subdirector/military gallery’?? I’d like to see those photos–thanks!!Fred Barry Nelson:
Hi Sid, I appreciate your frustration. The Guestbook format won’t let me copy the link. Go to and then click on “New photos from Donald Rom” in the “Military Photo Gallery.” The photo looks like a rural training area–not the Schwabach Bahnhof–which may explain why these pics aren’t in the O’Brien Barracks part of this wonderful website. It’s not “English” to me either! Aber Ich spreche ein Wenig deutsch. Aufwiederschreiben!Sid Kelly:
Thanks, Fred: I checked out the photos and remember those days well. Later generations of Tankers never heard of the M551 or its ability to swim–Fred Barry Nelson:
Hi Sid, Glad you found the photos of the M551 Sheridan tanks. I’d read about them, but I got out too early to ever see one. One of our 2/4 Cav lieutenants who was involved in the evaluation of the Sheridan gave it a bad rating. But it must’ve been fun.Sid Kelly:
I went to the Chassis Mechanic School for them when they first came out–I, personally, loved them as they ran like a ‘bat out of Hell’. They were designed for VietNam as they would float in the rice paddies unlike the M60’s which would sink. I was not ‘fire control’ certified but I understand they did have some problems in that area–and we CAN’T forget that if you hit a tree or something with the front track idler, the idler would snap off, taking a big portion of the ‘alum’ hull–but it was way ahead of it’s time in lots of areas——Kellyniok:

Thursday, 13. August 2009 07:38 Host:  I was in HHQ Troop, 2nd Squadron, 4th Cavalry, 4th Armored Division at O’Brien Barracks from June 1967 to October 1968. Had some good times there, except for the “alerts” when we’d have to go out in the field for days, sleeping under the stars. Would have liked to go back there, but never made it. timothy jeffords:
Hate to break it to you but they were still doing alerts 71′-74′ They even did an alert with a guy on the toilet. They handed him the slip and he wiped himself with it. Didn’t go over too big with higher up. He got out on apathy discharge. General discharge. Also we used to lock the doors from the inside and put one of those lock insert in the keyhole so when you looked in the keyhole it looked like it was locked and no one home. Brass would knock all day but we never came out so they left with out us. Hinton and I had the whole base to ourselves for a week. Do you remember those keyholes, no keys so you would have to use a bent up hanger to get in and out.

Friday, 7. August 2009 08:41 Host:   Stationed at O’Brien from October 1971 until May 1973, 2/59 ADA, 3rd Armored, although we spent probably 75 percent of our time in the field, the Czech border or “non-nuclear” ammo dumps (wink,wink). High point was the 2nd British Rock Meeting with Pink Floyd, and the low was any trip to Grafenwoehr, the only place in the world where you could get the fine blend of mud, dust and diesel with every breath. Still, I loved O’Brien and was actually sad to leave at the end of my tour. Nothing like waking up to rock and roll music in World War II barracks while the smell of hash melded with the urine fertilizer the farmers spread on the adjacent field. All that and $250 take home pay each month. Priceless!!Sid Kelly:
Hey Cal–I was there Jan ’68-May ’70 (HHT 2/4 Cav) and never heard Graf or O’Brien described exactly as you just did–but you are right!! Love it!!

Holden, Holden…I can’t remember you…but…was the 2nd Platoon SFC Johann Koch’s platoon? I was a loader and a gunner on SGT “Bugsy” Schafer’s tank in SFC Koch’s platoon. Later I was unit clerk under 1SG Luther S MacDonald and LT Lee Fullerton. As a newcomer to this site, Do you possibly remember the GI who saved a German baby in March 1968?

My fathers name was George B Hopkins Jr. My sister married one of his soldiers who was named Timothy V Lester. My father was from Maine and my brother in-law was from Oregon. I was just wondering if anyone on this site knew either of them. Came across it by looking up info on my birthplace and think that it is a great way for people to reunite themselves with lost friends!

Wednesday, 20. May 2009 12:06 IP:  To Tim J and anyone else who has tried to help me to identify a soldier from the Schwabach Kaserne who, in March 1968, revived a German baby using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The “baby” is now 42 years old and she would like to identify her saviour. Her name is Stephanie Engelage. Further details: She had choked on her bedclothes and had stopped breathing. This happened on Berchtoldstrasse, near the Kaserne. Anyway, her mother (who perhaps did not have a phone), yelled “Hilfe,” and an American soldier came to the rescue. Afterward, the baby’s father gave the soldier a car. But, as Stephanie put it, “Das Auto fuhr der Soldat aber leider bald zu Schrott,” which means, I think, “Unfortunately the soldier quickly drove the car to scrap.” Anyway, she wants to contact the man who saved her. It seems to me that a guy who saved a baby and was given a car would have been famous–he also got in trouble with the MPs for driving without a license. But after nearly two years of trying, I haven’t found anyone who remembers the incident. (I got out of the Army in January 1968.)celticson:
fred nelson nothing so far on the baby i went though the stars and stripes found nothing on a saved baby in schwabach in 1968 i need to hook up with someone that knows german to translate i will get back to you.Fred Barry Nelson:
Hello again, “Celticson.” Thanks for your continued efforts to help find the GI who saved the German baby. BTW, I got the story a bit wrong: the soldier got in trouble with the MPs for driving without INSURANCE (not for driving without a license). Re German translations, I know some German. If you have any links to anything that might be a story about the rescue, I could try to translate.TIM J.:

To whom it may concern:I don’t know if you guys have noticed this yet, but asking people to email in to get a password has SERIOUSLY cut the traffic to this site.Let’s face it; this feature discourages most legit veterans from trying to sign the guestbook and thereby reconnect with old military friends.
This used to be a site I checked everyday, but then one day, I had to have and email in to get a password.After a few months, I finally emailed for one, only to find that practically no one has signed the book since the last time I did.Was spamming really this BIG a problem?Please consider removing this feature until the site has become MUCH more established. There are still a lot of miltary veterans who are only now discovering the internet.The password request feature discourages them from investingating the site.Thanks for your consideration,

Hot sause was one of the foods they liked to take with them. I went TDY on a field trip for about a week with your team. In 1964 I think . I do not remember any names. I do remember drinking down town and we were deinking for quite some time we were outside ,a small bird landed on the table ,one of the LRBP guyes grabed the bird and bit it’s head off. I don’t remember that we did next. Hope you are doing good. Sp5 Martin Francis I got out of the army when I left SchwabachErnest White:
Hi Martin, if it was not for the cooks from differant troops we would have lived on c-rations. You are right we spent a lot of time in the field from one end of Germany to the other. The hot sause made the c-ration taste eatable plus some of us guys were not the best cooks. Take care.

Sunday, 12. April 2009 08:23 Host:  I arrived in Deutschland in the fall of 1972. I had never been outside of the Midwest before then,(excluding BCT, Ft. Ord and AIT, Ft. Knox. I was only 17 and still somewhat damp behind the ears.
I was amazed at the things you could purchase,(legally and illegally) on the streets of Germany.Switchblades and fireworks were among a few. We would purchase a bag of bottle rockets and sneak them on post by putting the shafts up our sleeve and holding the bag handles as we passed the M.P.”s.
I was in C trp 1/1 cav. My barracks was directly across from the P.X.We would get all abuzz on Tucher and other assorted goodies, then start blasting the rockets from our window. The windows opened inward like two doors. At the bottom of the sill was a receptacle for the latch witch held the shaft of a rocket quite well. Once as a huge rocket was lifting off, it veered back towards the room,hit the ceiling, and came into the room. We all took cover. I jumped against my wall locker and tried to close the doors on myself.
The rocket exploded and burnt a hole in our pretty, newly remodeled, red floor. The room was thick with smoke which then emptied into the hallway as we opened the door.The C.Q. was cool and didn’t report us. We rearranged our furniture and hid the burn with footwear under the bunk. I have so many good memories from so long ago. I was there for 2 1/2 years that seemed like a lifetime then.It was only a brief moment in retrospect.kevin womble:
Hey mark i was there with you and remember the fireworks incident!

Tuesday, 7. April 2009 12:32 IP:  OK, if the site is getting quiet, How about some tales of the 2/4 Cav–defending Bavaria from the Commies, 1966-68. I remember escape & evasion. I went out with SP4 Alvin Hunsel and SP4 Richard Thielker. I think Hunsel was from rural Indiana or Missouri. He was a natural in the field. I was raised in the city. I’m a good map reader, but if I get lost in the woods, I walk in a circle. So Hunsel & I were a good team. Our strategy to avoid capture was to cheat. We mapped out a route in which we sneaked off the military reservation. We almost got caught on the way out. We met some aggressors in the pitch dark who mistook us for fellow aggressors and let us pass. The way back in was more fun. We saw some aggressors on a road, and we jumped off the side and fell down a steep embankment that was covered with some sort of thorn bushes. We rolled down and were tortured by the thorns. Then we had to ford a stream, and one of us fell in. After a few hours, we achieved the objective…supper at the mess truck. We must have been starving. It was fun. Does anyone else remember this exercise?Sid Kelly:
Didn’t do E&E there–but did it during the NCO Academy–Caught pnemonia and was in bed for a week–they tried to ‘recycle’ me but ‘Frankie V’ came to the rescue—-Second time he ‘rescued’ me during the NCO Academy–First time was when I received a letter from girlfriend w/ a ‘peace symbol’ on the back of the envelope–Top threatened an Article 15 and then, when I wouldn’t accept that, a Courts MartialDonald Rom:
Donald Rom SP5 1967 to 1969, Sure do remember the fun, we walked for hours and wound up back where we started. It got so late that by time we got back the exercise was over.Fred Barry Nelson:
Hey, Sid, Inspiring story about the NCO Academy. As for me, I washed out of OCS…had stress fractures in my shins…and no one came to my rescue when the Army doctors put me on a full profile, which prevented me from doing any PT and made it all-but-certain that I’d be washed out. I was in Co A, Armor OCS, Ft Knox, commanded by CPT Tilley, who said, “No one gets through my company on a profile! I was an also-ran in OCS in any case. But it all seems like fun more than 40 years later. If I’d gotten a commission, I’d have served at least another 10 months, and I’d have had a better chance of going to Nam instead of Schwabach.Fred Barry Nelson:
Hi Don, It sounds as though your approach to escape & evasion was similar to mine. Are you thinking of going to the reunion this year? There’s a ferry from LI to New London.Sid Kelly:
Fred– Ltc Valjean basically ‘took me under his wing’ after doing a surprise visit to my inspection bay one morning–I was in the pit inspecting one of the new M-715’s and he showed up and started asking all sorts of questions–I don’t think I knew exactly what I was talking about (esp when it came to the difference between an oil leak and a seep) but like I told Sfc Ekerst when he asked about the visit–‘either dazzle ’em with brilliance or baffle ’em with bull s—‘ and ‘Frankie V’ was my friend from then on–TIM J.:

Hey Rick
Good to hear from you . Had some great times with B Troop 1/1 Cav . I still remember alot of the guys names.Some of them wrote to this site .Charlie Page:
Marvel first name was Charles,he was from the state of Washington and had a buddy from his home town , I think his friend was in the 2/59 .Steve Harper:

Marvel (Hull mechanic) was from Texas & Aikins was from Arkansas. They use to do a lot of who could drink more and who was a chicken,Texans or people from Arkansas.
Use to put their arms together light a cig. and lay it between their arms. First person to pull away was chicken. Their friendship was the reason three-six was the fastest sheridan in the troop. Akins use to call him “Marvel the Mustang”

I enjoyed a Kalzone at Mikes pizza every time I have been there. I feel as though it is not there anymore and that I will never return. Funny, finding this site. I see that someone from the 259 ADA was looking into the site. Hmmm, we hated those guys.

Hi Tim, Thanks for the help. She says it happened early in 1968…probably February…certainly January-March. Do you have the old newspaper? Or are they available online? Regards.TIM J.:
Hi Tim, The woman’s name is Stephanie Engelage. But she must be 41 years old now, so “Engelage” may be her married name. I just sent her an email in German asking for her birth name. Thanks again for your help.TIM J.:
JUST GIVE ME A NAME.Fred Barry Nelson:
Tim J–and anyone else who’s interested: I heard from Stephanie Engalage and “Engalage” is indeed her maiden name. It’s amazing that no one seems to recall the incident of an American soldier reviving a German baby with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in March 1968. Regards to all.

I was part of the Boeslager Team which took second place on the international competition in 1987 and was a trainer for the team which took first place in 1988. Although I was an 11B back then I enjoyed “switching” to 19D for a couple of years. I know must of you guys “hated” us, since we were the general’s “pets”. It was a lot of hard work and I would do it again in a heart beat! Those were the days of youth, SMLM Cards, Mickey Mouse boots, the 3 Mike’s Pizza outside the gate.

Also used to heat “C” rations in the exhaust. We used to pile up snow around the tent if you had to sleep on the ground. WOW !!! it is cold in your area this morning. 25 and windy here and don’t want to know chill factor probably. Congrats on the 57 bel air. Bet it will be beautiful. I may never get my 57 pontiac cause they’re hard to find at a reasonable price in restorable condition and I’m getting a little old to do all of the work myself. Body and trim work is awful expensive around here. OK–thanks so much for your replies Sid and have a wonderful day. JohnSid Kelly:

As you know, CD meant cross drive. Same principle as today’s hateful front wheel drive cars. I guess that some folks like ’em but I don’t. I love my 1984 Ford F-150. Looking for a 1957 pontiac to restore if I can afford it. Best vehicle I ever owned. Thanks so much for your reply Sid and have a great day. Where do you live ? I’m in Louisiana and it’s cold this morning at 30. JohnSid Kelly:
Hey, John–that sounds like the engine our M-99 VTR had, a gas burner version of the M-60 tank–man, we could be at Graf and stand behind the M-88 and roast hotdogs on the flames it would put out the exhaust!! Kept me warm on many a night!!– I’m in Powder Springs Ga just outside Atlanta and it’s 17 outside my house at this time with a windchill of around 2-I’ve got a ’57 2door post Bel Air in the upholstery shop right now and can’t wait to get her out (named her ‘Christine’ after the Steven King book–she’s haunted!!) I, too, don’t really like the front wheel drive-I like to kick something and have the rear wheels start spinning, fishtailing!!!Keep in touch!!

Sunday, 1. February 2009 08:56 Host: You’re right Sid The atomic cannon was a 280 mm gun I’m guessing about 40-50 ft long pulled with a tractor powered by the old 6 cyl opposed engine used in our little 76 mm tanks. I think it also had another tractor that pushed from the rear of the gun tube. The engine in the tractor was called an AOS 895. A for air cooled, O for opposed figuration meaning cylinders were 180 degrees apart ans S meaning supercharged. 895 cubic inches was the displacement of the engine made by Continental Motors by the way. Think they have since gone out of business. The cannon was an awesome sight back there in 1959-60 when we thought that our 90 mm guns on big tanks were impressive. Thanks for your comments..JohnSid Kelly:
John-you sound like me when you’re rattling off the engine description on that thing!! The M60 had an AVDS1790-2 w/ Allison CD850 trans

You guys had gotten my curiousity aroused about the ‘atom cannon’–never heard of it but entered it on search–came back as ‘atomic cannon’-damn!! Even a blurb where Johnny Cash sings while the video was playing–check it out!! And then I remembered, when I was a kid (1957 or ’58) I had a toy with the cannon in the middle and the detachable tractor and ‘tag along’–My time (1968-1970) we had the M551 Sheridan that could fire a conventional round or tactical nuclear warhead- I was just a mechanic so I don’t know if we even had the tactical round but??

from 1960 to 1962 spent 3/4 of the time in Graf & on the Czech border
enjoyed the town & train rides to Nurnenburg. At that time you had to wear a coat & tie to go to town, And the MP’s could come into the Guest houses
to check that you DID NOT lossen your tie
or take off your suit/sport coat.
ALERTS every month/ bummer 4:00 in the morning pack up everything and take off to a field near NuremburgJohn ‘Mister K’ Karonika:
I was with D Btry, 4th Missile and in the same building with you guys. 1961-64.

I think it was 1962 when we had -15 degree winter and USAEUR had all engines cranked every hour — everything that had an engine.

I recall bundling up (post commander required ear cover before leaving post), heading downtown Schwabach to drink COLD beer!

Wednesday, 21. January 2009 20:55 Host: unassigned-115.175.NetSurf.Net  Going thru the list of those signed up, I don’t see any that I can recall. I was in B Battery 2/59 AD during the years 1970-1972. I was a driver on a Vulcan named The Beast (B33). I use to have dreams about my time there, but over the years the dreams have stopped. I often think about making a trip to visit O’brian Barracks, but as the years pass, it looks as though this will only be a thought. I left many good frinds behind when my time was up. Some of us got together in 1973 and that was the last time I saw anybody who was there at O’brian Barracks. Funny how that time in my life I hated being in the Army and being there at O’brian Barracks, but now I reflect on how it was an interseting experience that I’m glad it took place.
Anybody out there who remembers B Battery 2/59 AD during 1970-1972? Kenneth J. Jaeger:
I was in A Battery during the same time as you were there. You were on the 3rd floor and I was on the 2nd floor of the same building. I also was on a Vulcan.

I knew old Gene James pretty well. After we were out I visited him once in Michigan. I think the town was Adrian. That was back in the 60’s and lost track of him after that. Do you remember Jerry Hensley from B troop? A crazy nut from Odessa, TX. Thanks again for contributing.
