I was there from 66 thru 70 in the 1st of the 67th and 3rd of the 71st I remember Bledsoe who signed the guest book also. I'm in contact with a few other survivers. I was a 16B and 16C and spent time as the battery CBR NCO.

Visited some time ago and took some pictures. Not much remains, just the barracks and admin area with s lot of african imigrants living in it and a guard tower they must have put in later when it was pershing. Two hangers were still standing but not much else. I did have some jagermeister flashbacks while I was there.

I was 2LT Richard E. Darcy who reported to C/3/71 in mid-December 1961. My commander was CPT John Pipkin, my XO was 1LT Marvin Bihn, and the two senior Lieutenants were FC platoon leader Dan Zimsen and Launcher PL Kenyon S. Oakberg.

2LT Clarel Bowman Mapes was an assistant platoon leader. Most memorable NCO was M/Sgt (E-7) Hal Hudson whose World War II aged visage is prominently displayed in one of your 1960 group photos.

There were two technical CW2s by the names of Lawson and Blanchette. Lawson's face appears in the same group photo.

I visited C Battery, 3d Missile Bn site in Oct 1974 and it was a Pershing Missile site. Gone were the Herc and Ajax missiles.

I came back to the site with my kids in 1984 and the site was closed; even the windows and frames had been removed from the barracks building. Entrance was denied. Very sad.

Great site! The maps and pictures are highlights...C/3-71 moved north to Hardheim after Kleingartach...and A/3-71 took over the defense of the Heilbron area, based at Dallau. Thanks for the effort! :D
