Hello everyone. I recognize a few names here. I was stationed in hardheim 81-83. MP tower rat. It was a great time over there. Had a little trouble adjusting to being in the middle of nowhere at first, but finally got to where I didn't want to leave. I got transferred to Augsburg in 83' for a year and then went home. Most memorable time of my life. I salute you all.

I served in C 3rd 71st ADA in Hardheim, for '76 to 77. We had a great bunch of MP's (Tower Rats) there and befriended everyone on the site. I see that a Capt Knapp is mentioned in Germany ADA several years later and probably is the same 1LT Knapp (XO) of our Battery. If you remember me, the dates, or the place, get me via email. 13 months in Germany and I got to see Eric Clapton, Queen, Aersomith, Manfred Mann, Uriah Heap, Ted Nugent, Black Sabbath, to name a few.

Hello,
we are still searching for Willi Kitchen.

We wrote here in this guestbook ~9 and ~18months 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

My name is Beate and I'm born in 1964 and growing up in Kleingartach. I was a little child, as the Charlie Baztery was in our area. But I remember me of sepcial moments in my childhood with the soldiers from there. They were very nice if they saw us kids, they had the most time chewing gum for us :o
Next the charly battery my parents had a potato field and when it was a sunny day, the soldiers give us kids ice cream. They stuck the ice cream through the fence :)
As an teenager we spend also time in the "Rose in Niederhofen".
I'm glad to found this page, remember me all the little moments.
And thank you all for your support of us during this time, you leave your home to protect us in Germany. Thank you so much!

My Dad, SFC Jessie Saint , was stationed from1970-1973 in Pforzheim at the Missile Base. Thanks for the memories that he still can talk about. We showed him the film of what looks like now and he could tell us before the man that shot the video where things were in the Launching area.

I served at C Battery Hardheim from August 1963 until April 1965. I was mos 179.10 radar crewman. There were some fun times and some not so fun. We did go to Ft. Bliss to fire a missile in early 65. We were also a mobile missile site in that we had Ajax and Hercules missiles and went to the field in 1964 after the snow melted. It was very slushy and quite a fiasco. If you remember the dates or myself please feel free to contact me at rayshanahan@comcast.net.

I was assigned to C/3/71 from January 1979 to November 1981. I served as the Launcher Platoon Leader under Captain Larry Manning, The Fire Control Platoon Leader under CPT Jeffrey Knapp and the Executive Officer under CPT David Inglee (Sorry can't spell). This is a great website and it has brought back some great memories. If anyone out there remembers me and you want to get in touch. My email is listed. Thanks to all who created this site.
