I served with D 3/84, a Pershing Missile Battery from 2/70 to 2/73. Kleingartach was our main CAS (Combat Alert Status) site and I spent my time with my platoon on Pad 1, your alpha section. Pershing was a tactical nuclear ballistic missile, 10000 lb solid fuel and we kept 4 hot rounds on the pads at all times with another 5 rounds assembled. The pictures and storyline are great and I remember many things after seeing the pictures - I can tell you I went swimming in the resevoir (beer was involved).

Thank you for sharing.

Hello,
we are from Germany near Hardheim.

We wrote here in this guestbook ~9months ago.
Simone is searching for her father Willi Kitchen.
She saw him about 44 years ago when she was about 2 years old.
Can somebody help us?

Here are the things we found the last months of Willi Kitchen.

Age: he was born at 30.September.19??, (between 1946 and 1950, rather 1946/47)
Middle initial: Albert (Willi or William Albert Kitchen)
He is a colored man
Stationed in Hardheim: ~1970, Charlie Batterie 3rd Missile Battalion 71 st Artillery
State he might have been when he went back: Florida (~43years ago)

I found one man (Joseph Torres) wich was driven from Willie Kitchen to the airprot in Frankfurt as he went home to the USA.
He was station with Kitchen from 1969 to 1971.
He (Joseph Torres)has seen Willis daughter when she was a baby in Germany. But he has never heard something from Willie Kitchen.

We hope I hear from anyone, please write if you know anything about Willi.

Thanks for you help.

Werner

Helga and I are very grateful that I was assigned to C 3/71. We meet in 1965 and were married 3 Sept, 1966 50 years ago.Some said that it would not last a year but I guess they were wrong. We have survived 50 years with our 2 very successful sons and our 6 beautiful grandchildren. I know i,m bragging but it is what it is. Thanks C 3/71.

I served at Gerszewski in 77 and 78.

Was talking to my neighbor. He said his dad also served in Karlsruhe around 67 and was in a missile battalion.

I thought D Battery, 3rd Missile Battalion, 71st ADA was at the zoo into the late 50s or early 60s, but had relo'd by the mid to late 60s...

Anyone know a soldier named O'Day that served in the Karlsruhe area in the mid to late 60s ?
