70-72

I was in B 2/51 from Dec. 1970 - Jan. 1772. Anyone remember B.Strickland? T.Skomiro (A Co)? L. Shandick? Training at Wildflekken, Hoensfelds, Graffenwere. Greece in fall of 1971. Used to go camping outside the wall in Rothenberg. Took my wife and kids back to Germany in 2006 and stayed in Rothenberg. Bad Windsheim sure looks different.

Driver for S3 staff officers

I was Stationed in Illesheim from May 1981 until around July 1982. During that period I chauffeured a Captain, two Majors and occassionally the battallion commander. And I must say, I had a great time with all of them. I drove around 25,000miles without an accident during my duty there, and i still think about those officers to this very day. I drove so must, sometime I was afraid to get out of my Jeep. Some of the guys in my Company gave me a nick-Name because of that, but I forgotten what it was. The Officers was very please with my driving skills as well.

Oh my I must be geting old. I was there from Sep 46 th Feb 47 (Yes those are the correct years) I was with the 48th Air Traanport Sq and the 23rd Transportation which was an all Afro-American Sq. As a young one of 18 and 19 I was a personnel clerk f both squadrons. We lived in old German airmen barracks which I must say were pretty nice. Favorite memory was when I was voluntereed t be a court recorder for a court martixal. And I couldn't take a word of short hand. Went on from there an made a career of AF and retiresd in 1967 as a SMSgt. The site brought back some great memories.
