There must be someone out there who was receiving mail, from home, at APO 215 New York, NY, during the early 60's. If so, let people know.

I was born in Chateauroux in 1963 and given in adoption to an American couple (my dad was stationed there). I've been trying to find out info regarding the hospital I was born in, and have thus far discovered that I was born in a maternity hospital at 72 Rue Ledru-Rollin in Chateauroux, possibly delivered by a midwife named Mme. Marchesi. I would love to find out anymore information and would LOVE to see a photo of this hospital. Thank you!

I was there in 62 in Mrs Brittan's 6th & 7th classes so we must have been at the school at the same time. I was just a bit older. Where did your family live, we live near Angoleme (spelling) until we moved to Citi Chabaze (spelling again)near post. What a great time to live in France.

YES! I was at Donges in 1964-65 as Post Engineer. I replaced Mr Warner and was replaced by Capt Van Houten. Major Harcourt Newman was our noble leader then. That was the year that the deep=sea anchorage got torn up and had to be repaired. BIG PROJECT!! We lived in (I think it was called Montrose), and coincidentally, now we live in Montrose, NY.
I'm going to suprise you in a minute ; I was stationed at Donges from 1959 to1962 as pipeline pump operator. Now the surprise is my name is Tom Simons. Iknow the off shore line you are talking about worked alot It's Pirac sur mer.Give me a shout on my e-mail it's [email protected]

Does anyone out there remember "La Boheme"? It was a G.I. bar located in Monparnasse, not far from the Hotel Littre. I would like to share some memories of it.

Hi,
I was stationed in Poitiers from April, 1966 till January, 1967. I was with the 313th Signal Company. If you remember seeing a big ANGRC/26 radio rig in the parking lot, that's where I worked. I use the term work loosely, since all we did was make hourly radio checks to our net control station in Orleans. Do you remember K.P. with a creepy cook from Virginia? He used to call everyone "slick." K.P. was the only work I did, and that was only about one weekday and one weekend/holiday in a month and a half.
I do have some pictures of the base, but lost my negatives and don't own a scanner. The view outside the base was better. You Tube has a great panorama of the city done from right in front of our main gate. It will take you back. I also have a pretty good memory, for a guy who just turned 63, so I'll send it over to you for now.

Hello Peggy. My name is Duane Decker and I live in Maine. Just thought I would try to locate some of my Army buddies. Noticed that you mentioned Poitiers 1965-1967. I was stationed there 03/65 through 08/66. I was in the 313th Signal Corp. Very boring but at that time with the war going on in Nam...couldn't complain.

Hi, Duane,
I don't remember you, but it's been a long time. I arrived in Poitiers on April 3, 1966. The comm center worked mostly shift work, while I was on days only. The people I remember from the comm center were, Sp/4 Fred Dupay, SGT Chasse, Sgt Eckert, Sp/4 Powell, Sp/4 Hammerick, Sp/4 Walker. The other guys I remember would have come later than your time there. I thought CWO Osborne was the best commander I ever served under. He kept the place running smoothly, but was fair.
You should check out the Yahoo Group site Caserne Aboville. If you join it, you will get to see hundreds of photos from 1962-67. I was very happy at Poitiers. All you had to do was figure out how to spend your free time, count your days, and all was well. Do you remember our mascot Charlie? He lived in my room with Sp/4 Loftin. Having a dog around made things feel a little less military.
