I was a 1st Grade teacher '69-'70
- I lived in the BOQ next to the Officer's Club. There were 9 teachers and we traveled almost every week-end. I bought a Karmann Ghia, loved it. I'm looking for one of my students, Scott Madigan. I think his father was a Colonel. Scott told me he wanted to be a paleontologist at age 6 and could draw line for line pictures of all dinosaurs. I have never forgotten him. I'm still friends with some of the teachers, life-long friends.
- I was there from 72-75. Was in 2/51 inf. later it changed to 1/6 inf. met a lot of good people. I'd like to re- visit. I was in C company. Captain young was my last co. Unity is strength

Was "Radar" for awhile
- I was stationed in B-Co. 4/35 from Apr 1967 to Nov 1969. Tanker for a year or so until I broke my ankle then the first sgt. put me in the orderly room to help the clerk; never got out. Not too bad there. Met a lot of good guys like Carl Brinkman (died 2010), George Johnson, Mel Farnsworth, Rudy Otativo, Bob Salinas, and lots more. Hope they're all doing good.

Loved living there!
- Went there with Dad (26th Aviation Co.) in 1956. Two room school, grades 1-3 in one room, 4 -8 in other. As a 5th grader, I helped 'teach' the little ones. Only 3 apt bldgs for housing, beautiful flowers in fields from spring thru fall goldenrod. As was said, we had little to do other than enjoy being together, going into the charming village, etc.

- Stationed at Illesheim from Jan 76 thru Aug 78. Made the best friends I will ever have in the Military. We had the old M60A1's and loved them. Wish I would have taken more time to see Europe, but got down to Burtschesgarden quite a few time to ski and check out the "clubs"/disco's. Lot's and lot's of really good memories there. the only reason I got out was because it was soooooo fricking boring. Not that i wanted to see war, but something to liven thing up would have been nice.
4th Armored Div - HQ 1st Brigade 66-68
- Stationed with great bunch of guys in HQ CO 1st Brigade, 4th Armored Division. Beautiful part of Germany to visit and live in. It was a world away for a young man from Texas. It was a great experience.

HHC 1/13AR '78-'80
- Served w/other SM Cooks/Bakers at Dining Facility. Handled Rations procurement and made up Daily Cook Worksheets. Rented a room in the home of a German family in Bad Windsheim. Had a Honda moped as transportation to-n-fro. I can now look back and appreciate the friendship of my fellow soldiers and the Germany Family allowed and welcomed me in their home and the delicious home-cooked meals I shared at their table.

C-4-35 from Aug 66 to Jan 68
- After 18 mos in a Nike-Hercules unit in states, I was sent to Germany and had orders changed to Armor in Frankfurt. Joined C Co in Graf and didn't get to Storck for 2 weeks. After initial shock, I got to enjoy the tanker life---at least as much as you can living in the snow and mud---and ended up a TC. Got to be an AI for Graf's Range 42 for a few weeks before I went home. I remember Puff running the "lowboy". I'm sure he got us out of trouble a few times. Capt. Timmerman was the CO. Saw him on TV about 15 years ago when he was at Ft Carson, CO, and being interviewed about the training being done there after 9/11. I think he was a Col. 1st Sgts were Mundy and then Jenkins. Sp5 Borsody, a German, was in C Co. He was an excellent gunner was in a Nazi tank during WW II. Bill Hubbert from Michigan was a good friend. Patterson was our driver, Jennings the loader, and Parks the gunner. The 5 weeks at the 4 AD NCO Academy in Erlangen was a great experience. Made some good friends there too.
