TO ED MERCK

Thanks for the site on Evreuxalumni! Do you have any info on an airman named Joe Swindle? I used him in a couple of Special Services shows -- a musical and a play -- at Camp des Loges (Hqs EUCOM). I also had him TDY'd to Verdun for several plays. That would have been in 1960-1961. He also did some entertaining at Evreux, where he was stationed. His specialty was to mouth recordings in the background as if he were singing them; "Yellow Rose of Texas" and Eartha Kitt's "C'est Si Bon" (hilarious!). frilobus@sbcglobal.net

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.
I just found a very good friend of me and my family who was stationed at camp des Loges in St Germain en Lay. She was in the Navy. I found her through internet after 38 years. She came to my home almost every weekend. I also worked on camp des Loges
with the French attendance and I was working for a Colonel at the Quartermaster. Needless to say that we have a lot of memories to share and we are going back end of June to Paris and will drive to St Germain en Laye again. We had contacts with officers on Rue Mabeuf too. Went there several times.

I am French from AGEN and was at managing the quartermaster ESSO station in Langon (from January 1955 to 1958) where the American soldiers got their gas. I married one and followed him here. He was an ammunition specialist at Captieux. Lloyd J. Montgomery working with Mr. Mc Cabe. He just past away after giving me 50 wonderful years.

The barracks Sargent ,SFC Robert Butler transfered to Donges from there. He was an old navy man. That's the only person I ever knew from Bussac. I was at Donges From Dec.1959 to June,1962 and he was there when I got there.

Finding some teachers is most important .
many thanks....merci mille fois.
Judy, just now poking around looking for pictures of Evreux AFB and found your post. My father was a Chaplain at Evreux around 1957-59..... Not so sure of the dates. I recall going to 8th grades at Evreux and then boarding one year at Paris American HS. Then we transferred to Orly in Paris and I bussed to the same HS for 1 year before we came back stateside. We just moved and I think I discarded my Paris HS annual but If you see this and respond I'll look again. The annual would have the teachers' names.

Bonjour Monsieur,
Je serais ravi de recevoir également des photos de cette époque, concernant le camp américain de La Braconne, mon père y ayant stationné jusqu'en 1966. De nationalité américaine, mon père se nommait Richard F. "Dick" (pour les intimes!) Charpentier. Il faisait partie de l'USAFE, et était spécialiste des transmissions.
C'est à Angoulême qu'il a rencontré ma mère, par le fait qu'il était en relation avec des radio-amateurs, dont Michel Donnou, le frère de ma mère faisait partie...
J'ai habité Angoulême de 78 à 85 (Lycée St Paul) et y retourne de temps à autre...
Cordialement,
Richard

I lived near or in La Rochelle in about 1956 and then we moved to Poitiers for the next two years. Then in 1966, we went to Chateauroux AFB for about 6 months. I have very fond memories of my time in France and the wonderful people there. I have no pictures, just my memories.

Janet,
Come to our Poitiers Group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/caserne_abovill... and find many photos of Poitiers, La Rochelle, and many other bases and towns in France. Poitiers is hosting a big science fiction convention in August, and I should have some pictures of that also.

I was stationed at Captieux from May 1960 through February 1962. I recall that we had Polish Army guards at Captieux and I recall going to their club on the base as they had "piwo" and kielbasa sandwiches which I enjoyed. If you would want to get in touch with me my email address is uscfranki@verizon.net.
Do you know where I can find a birth certificate for American children whose parent was station at Camp Captieux in 1958?

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Reinert (nee Bellville.) I was born at the US Army Hospital in Bussac, APO 215, France (Chte-Mme) on August 23, 1960. My father was SP5 Hoyt T. Bellville of the 574th Ordnance Company. My father, my mother, Rosey Mae Taylor Bellville and older sister, Sheila, and I lived in Blaye Housing in Blaye (Gironde. I was baptized on September 10, 1960 at the Sister's Convent in Blaye, France. The priest was Maurice J. Errico, and my godparents were Thomas E. and Helen M. Bivens. I have a letter that was sent to me by Robert J. Fleming, Jr., Brigadier General, US Army, Commanding of the US Army Theater Army Support Command, Europe welcoming me to TASCOM. Does anyone out there remember these people? My parents have passed - my mother in March 1996 and my father in September 1999. Thanks!
Hi,
I have records of Blaye, the city was called Cité PATTON.
My book is about family and BLAYE YAZELL.
My husband was also born in 1958 in Bussac, his parents are both deceased. I am trying to find out where to get his birth certificate.

PAMT had an NCO club that served enlisted as well as officers. 5-cent Heinekens and 10-cent mixed drinks. Well patronized by transient flight officers. Would like to know if anyone has knowledge of airmen stationed at PAMT during that time period. David Chismar, for one. By the way, the unit was Detachment 2300, 7025th Air Postal Group until disbanding when deGaulle kicked us out of France in 1967.
Hello Rich yes I remember you well/ I worked in the reg room and was at rue marbuf.I also remember david chismar. I now live in swansboro nc
