WOW! Just stumbled across this site. Dad was USAF - TSgt Wm. F.(Bill) Smith at the 12th Air Postal Squadron in Paris (60 -63) at either Rue de la Ray or Rue Marbeuf - not sure. He also ran the NCO club there. We lived in Grigny at 29 Voie G. We got there in Oct 60 & I went to 3rd Grade at Orly AFB. 4th & 5th were at Garches. Played LL baseball in 61 & 62 at Camp des Loges. Dad bowled in a league at Fontainbleau & we either shopped at the commissary/BX there or at des Loges. I used to buy all my comics at the Thrift Shop at des Loges...Anybody who lived in Grigny, went to Garches or was stationed 12 APS at that time, feel free to email me at rsmith13<at> nycap.rr.com - I'd love to hear from you!
I too just stumbled on this site where you posted that you were in Paris in 60-63> I was there as well from 54 to 67 then at SHAPE Belgium 67-70. I went to Paris American in Garches, both elementary and Junior High then high school in Belgium. I played baseball at Camp de Loges on several teams two were the Steelers and Shavers. Dad was a big bowler and bowled at Fountainbleau, Rue Marbeuf and was on a traveling league as well. We lived in Garches for a while the moved to Petit Bouguard, bldg 3. I well remember the shuttle bus as that was how I got to practice. Our dads most likely knew each other.
My dads name is David (Dave) Perkins, was a Sgt in the Army
