Hi Philip, I sent you an email from my juno address, let me again invite you to join the Poitiers Yahoo Group . We've been trying to remember what medical dispensary was located at Poitiers. We don't have any ex medical personnel on the Group yet. Was it the 385th?

Dear Philip, my parents were US Army stationed in Evreux, France in the early 60's, I was born in Evreux, FR in 1963. My brother has quite a few pictures of our time there. If you are still interested pls let me know. In addition, I am looking for anyone who remembers James and Iris Zalascek. My mother passed away a couple years after returning to the USA Ft. Bragg, NC. I would certainly welcome their comments. Thanks so much, Debra, Email: [email protected]

C'mon Guys,
Somebody out there besides myself had to be stationed at Chalons-Vatry Air Base.
Surely, at least somebody has visited it.
It is about 20 klicks from Chalons-sur-Marne (now known as Chalons-en-Champagne).
Please don't tell me that I'm the only one left.

No; when you left the Chateau to go downhill, there was a small hill with very little vegetation on it, but some trees; it must have been a small brick or stone guard house or storage house; just in front of it was an oil tank made of steel which was just a bit too high to climb up on. Going further down was a basketball court which is still there on the Google Earth photo! Amazing to have survived that long. I can't remember when, but once a week or so we would take an Army bus to Voluceau to see a movie there, which was a big deal to go unsupervised.
Regarding the guard house I once waited inside for my father to pick me up after school for baseball & it was a one room house where a Portugese family of 5 lived. I remember it being very homey. I have thought of it often in the past 40 odd years .

I remember borrowing your bike for short rides (no pun intended); mine was too big and heavy and it would have been years to grow into in; great for coasting downhill. At least in Germany I got a Playboy bike with a banana seat.

I was stationed in Orleans France from June 1960 to September 1962. My post of duty was Harbord Barracks, 269 Signal Co.(Svc). It was a gret experience and I found the people in the city of Orleans very pleasant. I also lived on Rue Bannier off post. Great city!
I remember you Jorge. I was stationed at Harbord Barracks with the 269th from 4/61 TO 6/62.

I was also stationed at the Captieux Ordnance Depot from 1956 to 1958. For most of my stay there, I operated the Class VI store. I still keep in contact with another person stationed there, Edward Farrell, who worked as a butcher in the commissary. All in all, it was a great time to be in southern France.

I was an army brat at SHAPE but my father would take us fishing to some stocked trout pond south of Orleans reserved for Americans or Canadians who missed the call of the wild. It was basically a road next to a cornfield and some trees on one side, and if there were three or four camping families there at one time it was crowded. Nice trout when we went.

. My father also worked as a civilian in Poitiers during the same time frame. We lived on a farm outside of town, and my brother and I went to French schools. Great times! I still visit lifelong French friends there every couple of years!

Thanks, LBY, others have mentioned Dr. Hope. My unit was billeted on the same floor with the medics, but I can't remember their unit designation. We have a lot of pictures on our Yahoo Group at Caserne Aboville. Lots of memories from the three years I spent there. Where did your father work on Post?
