Yes Lee Married a guy named Marco, he was also stationed in the 193rd or maybe the 165 in Fischbach, don't remember now. She was also married to another american prior to my tour in Germany, and she had a son with him, but she didn't have custody of him. When we left she was pregnent, she had the baby , and they both went back to the states with Marco.
any how this has brought back a lot of memories.

yes, tragedy about jimmy matlock. he died nov 11 , 1980. good kid, young, 22 yrs old. married, a pregnant wife. I was in tower 5 , late at night, cold, heard all the action on the radios. heard a faint thump thump of helicopter blades coming, got louder and louder. took jimmy away. then the helicopter left. silence.
cpt. manaker died in his sleep in germany right after that..
and those stupid dog handlers broke in a storage bunker. one of em ended up in ft. leavonworth.
well,
life is life.
Charles c Clevenger was a good friend of mine.
I wonder where they all are today, how many are still kicking and how many of them are no longer around..

I was in the 575th as a seargent missle test equipment repairman.I got there in January 1972 and left february 1974, So we were there at the same time. Hard to remember names from so long ago but yours sounds familar. Did you know Lt. kirsten? Lenoard Tworek?

I was there with the 193rd MP Co.'60/61 but had a tab at Sophies in Ludiswinkle. Loved the beer - Parkbrau - but could have done w/o "The Hill." You could disappear your brain with shots of Hennesy & bottles of Parkbrau and do it for less than $3.00. Course you paid for it the next day.
I was there about that time. The company commander was universally despised, a captain named Scott. The thing I remember was the beauty of the place, at least in Summer..winter not so much...I'm in touch with Rodger Geiger, who was the mailman. Also spent time at Sophies, no towers then, just raggedy-ass guard shacks. I was the guy who painted the eyewash signs above the platoon bays, all crossed pistols and yellow and green...Anything to stay out of the woods. There was a guy named (I think) John van Gorder who "went on strike", anybody remember that? Also one guy who ALWAYS had a plug of chewing tobacco in his mouth, so constant that his ID picture showed the bulge in his cheek, the grass outside the window of his platoon bay was all dead from tobacco juice.

I was stationed in Fischbach '64-'66 w/64th Ord Co
spent evenings in Ludwigswinkel at Pops on the lake
may still be there, played fooseball, beat locals. Kept manuals for ordinance - Nike Hercules etc.
there were 3 of us, we discharged out close together, didn't stay in touch much. Spent some time with the wonderful Klar family in Ludwigswinkel, made being in the boonies bearable.
Busch was C/O, Patterson was top kick. discharged Sept '66.. Rarely look back..
..My husband < Al Johnson was stationed in Fischbach from 64 til 67 he told me so many stories of the place and his friends there, Mike Jones from upstate N.Y.,Raul Cruz from NYC, he and Raul had a couple of little money making gigs while he was there ...nothing illegal

my husband Al Johnson was stationed in Fischbach from 64 til 67. He loved his time in Germany and spoke often of friends he had made....Mike Jones from upstate N. Y., Raul Cruz from NYC,We kept the postal service busy while he was there, I remember him speaking of Pops,and the local bakery where he claimed they had the best bologna and "case" sandwiches ever.Sadly he passed away in 2010, we had 4 children ( 2 sons, 2 daughters ) and 9 grandchildren, and many , many happy days together. He was a great story teller and could always make me laugh, even when i was annoyed with him.

I was stationed at Fischbach (64th ORD) from '77 until '80, a great time in the German vacationland. Petersbachel, Busenberg, Dahn, Parkbrau Bier (the Pirmanator was a Terminator) and the food/wine all bring back fond memories. Must admit you tower-rats and your "Duck" game kept things lively at the time. Proud to have served and lucky to have 'survived' the good times.

I was there 88-90. I loved Germany, and even have some fond memories of the Bach. A cold beer at Pete's, The Eye, some ruins around the area, did I mention a cold beer at Pete's?
I know things always look better when looking back, but I can't help but look back fondly on some of the many memories I made as an MP.

I also remember the 5 ton rides to Fishbach and working 9 days on (3 days on each shift) and then 3 days off.

Hey this is William Lynch. I was in 15th M.P. CO also. What is your full name? Also, is there anything out there or programs for us that were out there? That microwave field had to have damaged us some kind of way!

Nice to see all the posts from the various years of service. I was there from 80-82. Nothing like watching grass grow. Sorry to hear Pete's closed, Euro-disco et al. A lot of good memories of friends and travel. Rented the animal house in Petersbachel - what a hoot! Got in a lot of trouble with the CO on numerous occassions, but 19 and out of country, what do you expect? BAF units forever....
