I was at Charlie Battery from Nov.1966 to Nov.1968. I was looking for 32nd Air Defense Artillery Patch and found this, how great is this.

With Charlie 3rd 71st from May 1961-November 1963. I arrived at C Battery as a 630 but OJT to 177 after 6 months. Performed a number of jobs while there including B section panel operator, generator building operator and LCT operator just before I left.

I can remember my first day at C Battery (19 years old), I accompanied some of our comrades to the Castle and had my first taste of German beer. If you look at the 3rd71st 5th anniversary C Battery group picture, I am second from the right bottom row.

I don't know if you ever heard of a certain PFC who while on guard duty in the launch area (tower 2) fired two warning rounds because he saw someone on the fence at 3:00AM.

That would be me!

Have fond memories and would like to hear from anyone there at the same time. Still going strong

I was stationed at the Nike site in Hardheim from 74 to 76, and while so many truly did not like that 24 on, 24 off schedule from hell.....I was single, 20 years old, and it was perfect for me at the time.

Once a month there was a hitchike to Penden Barracks and then a train to Frankfort.....only problem was no trains going back so beginning at 3 or 4 am there was a significant push to get back in time for the 7:00am guard mount.....that was always a challenge.

Anyone hear from a Tom Therault or a Skeeter Anderson, both missle crewmen and friends, please point them in my direction. Also, I always wondered what happened to the Duetuerhauf in downtown....loved the old couple that ran it but really loved their two grand daughters as well.

Take care folks! Here's to surviving!

Glad to hear from you again. Not many remember me. I also have forgotten many. Do not get old. The old saying: "Only the good die Young." I am still around just had 83rd b/d in Jan. Still in fair health. Teethy are false, ditto hair and wear hearing aid. Got one false knee But I'm still the same old pain in the --- I always was. Also wear bifocals So take my glasses off and Any of my old troopers can kick my * * *. I sure miss the old days and the companionship of good people. We did a good job.

I arrived at the 195th Ord. Det in Dec of 58 and left in june of 62. So I had lots of time going to all of the sites. Sad to see how all is really just a memory.

I was stationed in Hardheim from 8/0/63 - 4/0/65 .For the most part the time was quiet except for the JFK presidential assaination. We were watching a movie and someone came in and told us first that he had been shot then was dead. The German people in Hardheim for the most part thought it had been a conspiracy. I always loved Hardheim the gasthauses and people were very giving...
