My name is Pamela and I am writing to ask for a little help tracking down some information for a friend of mine, Jon Barrett who served as a military photographer in Grafenwoehr in 1957-58.
I have attached translated articles from the Christmas 2013 issue of "Der Neuer Tag" in which Mr. Barrett's story is told to the best of his recollection. He is now 78 with little knowledge of the internet and has asked if I would help him in his pursuit.
Perhaps his request sounds unusual and a bit far-fetched but Mr. Barrett has fond memories of the time he spent in Germany. He wonders till this day, what happened to the children in the photos and how their lives turned out under the direction, protection and efforts of Spearhead way back in 1957 and '58. I thank you in advance for your time and efforts.
Best Regards,
Pamela J Chandler

BACKGROUND
Military reporter at “Wintershield”

Grafenwohr/Vilseck. (az)
To summarize this story once more:
The American Jon Barrett former military reporter was a soldier of the 143 in the winter of 1957/58. News troop “Spearhead” (also known as Spaher) of the 3rd panzer division was making use of the troop practice ground Grafenwohr during a ten day maneuver.

Jon Barrett was a military reporter in Germany in 1957/58
.
• In a helicopter crash in which the pilot and co-pilot walked away, unnoticed he took photographs of a group of boys with at the least one girl, as they curiously watched the fiery accident. They must have some how crossed over the border to the area because at that time it was forbidden to tread there.

• Why this search by the 78 year old veteran from Chester, Connecticut? The answer is simple. Jon Barrett wants nothing more than for these children in the photo from then to enjoy re-uniting with their families and friends. And a reply would bring him joy. After the motto, “The joy that you give comes back to your own heart.” That this would become a “mission impossible” we at the newspaper and Jon Barrett had not anticipated. “Your letter arrived with disappointing news” he wrote back- and hopes further.
Search until now without results
No one knows the pretty girl from the helicopter crash 1957/58 – American hopes further

Von Anni Zeitler

Grafenwohr/Vilseck. For Jon Barrett it’s incomprehensible and also for us hard to grasp: that the pretty girl and the other children that he photographed near the helicopter accident somewhere on the edge of the Grafenwohr troop practice area are not yet found. Also with our second story entitled “Lots of tips but no hot leads” we got no responses that were successful.

So there is no good news for the American military photographer that he so very much awaits. Simply it is highly unlikely that all of the children in the picture in the year 1957 and all of their friends and families have left the area. That they are still alive is very possible because they must have been born in the years between 1947 and 1950.

Both articles appeared in “The New Day” as well as surrounding area towns including the troop training areas, Amaber-Sulzbach, Vilseck and in some parts near Schwandorfer areas. There have been a lot of discussions but in total no results.

After our second report Ottilie Weiss from Vilseck came forth. It is this remarkable active senior with her detective talents took over everything in order to shine some light into the dark. The talk is from this resolved woman who succeeded in bringing back the flag from America of the village Hopfenohe.

What Ottilie Weiss protected gives wonder and hope again. She seemed to be on the right trail. While she had the opportunity to busy herself she was underway on a Sunday from 12:30 – 4:30 to different villages. Knowingly she just went to old farmhouses to talk about the possibility that yes, some older people from that time would remember a helicopter accident.

Crash near Edelfeld?

“I had had almost enough of this house to house”, she laughed on the telephone. Over and over again she had told people the story. Head shakes here, shoulder shrugs there, so it went. Then, as a matter of fact, an old man from Riglasjof/Gemeinde Edelsfeld, knew that in that time a near by sand pit was ablaze after a helicopter accident in which there were no survivors. This sand pit exists today.

Large scale exercise “Wintershield”

The outcome comes around again to the testimony of the American Barrett. In another crash with deadly outcome for the pilots different people can still remember, (we reported). This is not about that. This older man knows in any case exactly, emphasized Ottilie Weiss. It was during the large scale exercise “Wintershield” that it happened, near Riglashof during a directed war exercise… Jon Barrett wrote about “the ten day war exercise” in his first letter. Elvis Presley also took part in these maneuvers Ottilie remember herself. Because she had the luck to speak to him personally! The joy about that could be heard in her voice even after 56 years.

Photo insert: The pretty girl in the group of children stood out to
Jon Barrett 56 years ago with the enlargement of the picture.

Photo insert: After the crash of a U.S. Military helicopter children were
watching the accident. The helicopter burned out, the pilot
and co-pilot came out of it with just a scare according to Barrett.

In spite of everything: after weeks of new hopeful waiting, still no concrete trace.
Jon Barrett repeats the belief that he wrote in his first correspondence, “hope never dies!"
