What did J2 designate at Camp des Loges? We were stationed there from 62 - 65 and my father worked there.
To the best f my knowledge ,the offices at Headquarters were numbered J and then a number followed. The one I recall hearing about was J5.That was the men's latrine! When money came to us in the form of a letter from home etc.I would ask my husband where it came from and he would always say "J5". It was our joke that remained for the rest of his life..As it was a Joint Command maybe the J stood for Joint..Not sure.

My name is Alain Wojcik I was born April 10, 1952 in Dreux (my father Jean and mother Maria, my sister Jeannine). I lived in Saint Rémy sur Avre, near Nonancourt or I always my parents' house.
My parents rented a house on Perkins, Albert and Rita family. Albert was like you, military in St Andrew.
There was also Jennins family who lived on my street. M.?. Jennins was also at the base of St Andrew. They had a baby boy, Jim. Jim had a sister who was born in France.
I am looking for this family, last known address Lexington - Kentucky.
Have you known this family of Saint Rémy sur Avre?

My father was stationed in France when I was 4-5 yrs old. We joined in about May 1966. We weren't there long before the bases were all closed & we went to Germany for the remainder of his tour. I have some memories of our time in base housing however I'm not sure of where exactly we were. I recall my mother mentioning Vietri? or something similar - possibly close to Paris but I have no way to verify that name - plus my mother wasn't very good with place names or pronunciations. At the time my father was a dental hygienist - perhaps that will help someone identify where he might have been stationed.

Hi Robbie,
I was with the signal corp at Camp des Loges in the early 60's. I recall only one swimming pool at that time. That one was located in front of the telephone communications building and across the street from the mess hall. Unused at the time and in disrepair it had a chained link fence around it and eventuality that was replaced with a white picket fence. I have a few fotos of the pool.
Many fond memories of my time spent at Camp des Loges and in France.

Loved that pool, went to it every summer. We were in Paris 54-67. I played baseball on CDL would love a picture of the pool.

What brought me to this place was a search, via Google, for Petite Beauregard. I'm amazed at the number of posts and years that this thread has sustained as so many people have chimed in with their memories! I've spent several days reading all the posts, even after they veered from my original interest. My father was Sgt. Earl Cadle. He was the driver for Gen. Andrew O'Meara. My brother, Earl, my sisters, DeAun and Wanda, and I, along with my father and my mother, Dorothy, lived on Petite Beauregard around 59-61. I was sorting through some of Mom's effects the other day and ran across a picture she'd taken from our apartment window of the playground. I also found a worn, yellowed and somewhat tattered (but still in relatively good condition) copy of the Pariscope dated January 29, 1960. If anyone is interested, I will gladly scan them in and forward them. And, if anyone remembers us (any of us), would welcome their remembrances.

I would love to have a copy of both the Pariscope and playground. My email is [email protected] Dave

Bill,
I got the same education in 1957 and 1958 when I discovered La Boheme. It was on a small side street which angled off from Rue Odessa [near the present-day tour Montparnasse]. The street no longer exists but the memories live on. I remember most the many French girls in there and that they had an "everybody" room for a w.c. Also know well the many bars of Pigalle....Nebraska, Canada, etc. Have been back many times but it is no longer the same.

I was at toul rosiere AFBASE from 58 to 60 and Orly Field from 60 to 63 and La Boheme was Our hangout from 60 to 63. Richie the bartender ran with us whenever he was off and the little private corner with the roof was ours when we were there. My buddies were and are George Grimes, Carlos Castaneda, Tom Ruane.

Hi,
Your mother was not that far off. Vietry was actually Vitry in the town of Vitry-le-Francois, in Eastern France in the region called Marnes. It was a U.S medical dept and the fact that your father was a dental hygienist fits nicely. Today the base is still open but it is occupied by the French Military.
Need more help don't hesitate.

Micheal - thank you so much! When I read your response I remembered the -le-Francois part -- I had just always assumed she was trying to say it was in France. Such sweet memories - learning to ride a French two wheel bicycle - the carnations that grew in the housing area - trips to the open air market in town. Thank you for putting a name on the place of those memories. M

My dad, Don Jacks, was stationed in St. Andre, France in 1961-'63. He would like to get in touch with some of the guys he played ball and bowled with on base.

Minxy,

Glad to help.

If you went to school in the elementary school on the base in Vitry, there is a chance that you had my wife as a french teacher. She thaught grade school French in 1964 & 1965 while I was stationed a few miles away on a base called Brienne le chateau.

By the way, if you want to find the base on Google map, look at the town of Vitry and then find the city of Saint Dizier. The base is on right side of the road coming out of Vitry on the road to Saint Dizier. It is very close to Vitry and the road is called rue d'Alsace Lorraine (D396). The old U.S. housing area is just before it. I realize that this is a whole lot of useless information but what the heck.

Mark, I was also at TRAB in the 60's. I found this site http://136.fr/ and am in touch with a French Airman who was there after we left.
Let mw know what you think

With regard to Frawley Beckers comment #2780. I quite agree except...I know you are a stickler for historical facts "The Bayeux Tapestry" is not a Tapestry it is an Embroidery, and was made by English women!! Paul

You didn't give a time period but I recall driver and interpreter named GUY..pronounced GEE.(1956-1958) He was very friendly and participated in many of the American's entertainment activities. He dined at our house a few times. He was not real tall and had dark hair.
