Bonjour Philippe,
I lived in Paris from 1965-1967 while my father worked at Camp de Loges. I've returned to Paris several times in the past 5 years and, although I did not look for that former base, I did tour the apartments where we lived (in La Celle Saint Cloud). The only other location in Paris that I found from the 1960s was a former American officers club on Rue Marbeuf.
Worked at USEUCOM. Base still there. Operated by French. Paris St Germain football club offices and practice facilities are across the street.

This is Steve, Reed I can not remember if I ever responded to your post about "Charles", if he was in High school around the time I was there he would have been much older than I was and doubtful I would have had any interaction with him. I did go to elementary school at Joan D' Arc and we did live in Regina Village up until our departure back to the real world in 1965.

Camp Gazaux was a recreation center located on Lake Gazaux ("Etang Gazaux" on Google Map) in a pine tree forest southwest of Bordeaux. The camp hosted families and Boy Scouts (during separate weeks in the summer months). Lodging accommodations were GP medium tents on concrete hard-stand. There was a regulation Army mess hall, an aid station, and latrines. The beach (across the road) was actual sand. Boats were small day sailors and canoes.

My brother and I went to Camp Cazaux at least one year. My Dad was a Dept. of the Army Civilian stationed at Captieux 1958 - 1967. We were about the last ones out the gate.
I remember sleeping on army cots in big tents at Camp Cazaux. We did lots of water activities there swimming, row boating, canoeing. It was a great time.
I don't remember the exact year but am sure it was between 1959 - 1961.

I'm the one that took those pictures way back in the day (they're posted on my troop website -- I'm still involved in Scouting as an adult leader). I've tried to find the exact location of the old Scout camp on the map, but can't figure it out -- too much has changed over the years. I also posted some memories of Camp Cazaux on another website ( http://dreuxairbasefrancememories.org/ )for anyone that's interested (in the "memories of Dreux" section.

Hi Jim,
We have a Yahoo Group for Poitiers, with lots of pictures in the Album, but always want more. Right now Yahoo is messing with all the Yahoo Groups, and we're not sure what the Sites will look like once they are finished with us. I'll send you a private email, and get the url for the Group at the same time. In the meantime, you can email me personally at [email protected], or visit my Blog at http://pulplair.blogspot.com where I review books and have Links to other places. I was stationed at Poitiers from 1963 to 1966 with the 202nd MPs. We have some 313 Signal boys and lots of others, as well as other military Posts and bases (Army, Air Force, and maybe Navy who were in France. Lots of history. I'll be in touch shortly.

I have sent a few items on to the folks who maintain the caserne aboville website, including a photo of an old horse used by a junk collector, and two newspaper articles--one about Orador sur Glane, the town massacred by the German SS, and one where 2 sergeants from USSASCA are getting a commdndation for administering first aid to French people injured in an auto crash. As I get some 35 mm color slides put on a CD, I shall send more in.

My family lived in "base" house at Grigny from when it first opened, sometime in '56, to '60. My husband and I just recently went back to Paris/Fontainebleau for 2 months and we took the train to Grigny and rode bicycles all around the area and down into Viry Chatillon. What great memories! The three lakes at the bottom of hill are still beautiful. And I love what the French people have done with the duplexes we lived in. My father, Harold "Hal" Marshall, was stationed at Orly and I went to school on base 5th, 6th and 7th. I was so mad at my parents for making me leave. And I go back every chance I get.
Gail,
I know the feeling of nostalgia regarding Paris, Orly etc. I was stationed at the Flight Service Center at Orly from 12/1957 until 12/1961 and loved every minute of it. I to return from time to time to try to recapture the flavor but it just isn't the same...neither am I.

Walt,
I completely agree with Hemingway and think often of the impact of spending the years [age 18-22] living in Paris. It did alter my view of life and the world in general, to this day. By the way, I was also stationed twice at Dover AFB...95 FIS and later MAC Airlift Control Element.
