Memories of duty in Bamberg

I arrived on Woodstock weekend in 1969, I arrived by steam train. I was there until January of 1972. The whole experience was a highlight of my life (yes, even miserable guard duty in Winter). We did motorized patrol of the Muna area too. I lived in the copper-roofed HQ building at the end of post, and we often ducked over to the Weisenberg for a schnitzel and a beer after duty. In Summer, we often jammed out and went to the schwimbad up the street. I remember Graffenberg too, and it was a total blast, in many ways. Yes, Hertie Platz and the bratworsts, and schloss Altenberg (we climbed the tower *many* times! Tourist tours in town were enlightening, the vinyl records, posters, candles, antiques, and incense were common item bought in town, and there were too many great places to eat! From Bamberg, the guys & I ventured out all over Europe, but couldn'y travel behind the "Iron Curtain" (sadly) back then. Went to many rock concerts all over, and often attended concerts at Meistersinger

Was stationed in Bamberg from Oct 61 to Nov 62. Great experience. am interested in finding out where post was located at that time since I'll be in Bamberg on approx 8/20 via a Viking cruise. Would like to take a walk down memory lane.

i was stationed in Bamberg from 1978-1981. I was with HHT 2/2 ACR . Is the Kaserne still under USA control today? We patrolled the border between the FRG and DDR. I had many great times while stationed there especially at what we nicknamed "Hertie Square" named after Hertie dept. store. Frequented the Mautkeller and the Wienerwald restaurant. Thank you for letting me share. SSG S. Williams HHT 2/2 ACR APO 09139 (still remember APO!
