I had just found this web-site today and was soaring high until decided to to a Google search for Sgt. Dan Kahele, only to find his obituary from Nov. 7, 2004. SSG Kahele was probably the one person that I had more respect for than any other person than I had ever met in the Army. He was as big as a house and could pick up an engine to move out of the way so another vehicle could be brought into the workbay. He was also one of the nicest men who would take care of his troops and go out and have a beer and Jaegermeister and make sure everyone made it back to the barracks in okay. We might not have been in the best shape when we got back, but we got back okay! I'll tip a glass to you tonight, Dan!

For those of you who are coming to the reunion, please forward to me your flight number, arrival time, and arrive date. George, I have yours, Don, I just need your flight number.

 

 

To get a decent priced shuttle to the hotel. Go across the street from the Northwest Grounds Transportation Courtesy Desk and take the “share a ride to the hotel”. The cost is $22 plus gratuity. There is a bus being schedule to run people back to the airport on Sunday. I do not know if that is $22 per person, or for a couple. I suspect it is per person. As people get to me with their flight times and arrival times, I am going to see if I can put some people together to be able to do better. The hotel says it will cost about $50 to get a cab from the airport to the hotel. I am hoping we might be able to get 4 people to a cab possibly and reduce the cost to $12.50 each.

 

 

For those of you who are coming to the reunion, please e-mail your arrival information to me as soon as possible at secretary@3ad.org Do not just reply to this posting as you will be sharing that information with the world. For those of you who are bringing a guest, I also need the name of your guest. Some people signed up for complete reunion registrations with a guest. I need to understand the gender of your guest for the Friday lunch. I also need their name to make a name tag for them so they can participate in the events there.

I am now in my 20th year of active duty service although I have had intermittent service since 1973. I wear the spearhead combat patch today and have seen only two other soldiers wear the spearhead patch since 1999. As I mentioned before, I was a chemical officer (CPT) assigned to USMA and was deployed from West Point to support the 3AD during Desert Shield and later Desert Storm. I regret I won't be able to make the reunion in Indianpolis this year as I am TDY that week. I would love any contact info on LTC Adams, from Arkansas who was the Chemical Officer, or CPT Trently or CPT Prescott, the Asst Chem Officers. You may not remember that I was the Chemical Officer asked to go and investigate the "spider bite" of the cav scout who got into some ?? blister agent. An interesting fact is the Medical Officer who came from CONUS to investigate the incident is now my boss here at USAMRICD. At the end of hostilities, I worked with the historian to do the first draft of the unit diary in theater. I am now the lead author revising the three history chapters in the US Army's Textbook of Military Medicine – Chemical Warfare Aspects. I had kept a personal diary during the deployment which I am sending to the national archives. It contains the Spearhead news bulletin that we received out in the field. Anyone wishing to provide additional information on the Cav Scout incident near OBJ Collins, please feel free to respond. Hope you enjoyed this update. Have a great spearhead day!

LOOKING FOR ZIGGY ZIEGFRIED, DANNY NEWMAN, STEVE GORLEY, RONNIE BYRD, DONALD DRIGGERS, DAVE BANDO, IRA BONIFAY.

Budingen!!!!! Guard Duty at the airfield, Barracks CQ, KP, UP, Installation Detail, Hanau Ammo Guard, CP, and those weekly alerts. Nightly walks on those dark back roads…returning from late flights and flashlight (daily) inspections on aircraft; only to get up and do it again in the early AM. Later I heard the term "Crew Rest"….huh??? Use to turn my flight jacket inside out (orange out) so I would not be run over on that back curvy road. Sometimes we stopped to rest at old number "9"…to see the stars….. We were the new Volar Army. "Three Years and Europe". Remember Rommels whiskey stash, trips to the Frankfurt Audio Club (who had the best stereo system), Gelnhausen, Hanau, (only real PX and Commissary). Of course it is all good memories now.

Recon Sgt for 2nd Bn 3d Arty. One memorable BC was Capt Kretzer, a real piece of work, 1st Sgt Patterson, a real squared away and good guy. Lots of memories (good and bad of Graf, Hoenfelds, Wildfleken etc. Like to hear from anyone there at that time and place.

Just remembering more stuff about serving with the 3rd in Swingin' BooDingin- I drove an M816 wrecker when I was in HQ platoon, got all 10 wheels off the ground once (ask John Hightower); Licher Pils beers at Old Charlie's, New Charlie's, and Hole In The Wall; beerfests in Ranstadt; Graf and Hohenfels; then I switched to 1st Platoon- SSG Scarberry!- and went 16P as a driver and observer, went to Crete twice, met some nice Norwegian girls; one wild weekend in Munich which I'll never ever forget; SSG Smoker and his hotrod, which he got all his motor pool greasemonkeys to work on for free; Asbach and Coke when we got tired of beer; lots of time in the field on alert ("what's a lert?"); my buddies Larry and Mike and living offpost in a farmhouse in Bergheim; the Rheinig Sisters!

The following is from the summary on page 11 of the 1963 3AD Yearbook. “On May 19, 1962, Major General Creighton W. Abrams, Jr., Division Commander, was reassigned to the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations at Department of the Army. He departed the Division after having held his post since October 1, 1960, and was succeeded by the Division’s present Commanding General, Major General John R. Pugh, who came from Second Army Headquarters at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara visited the Division October 5 that year, and was escorted by General Pugh. Secretary McNamara, dressed in field clothing, spoke to many Division officers and enlisted men as they went about their daily tasks. . . . The Secretary terminated his visit by flying to Division Artillery’s field command post where he was briefed on the command’s mission. Testing speed, mobility and striking power, the 3d Armored Division wound up the active year by moving to the field for FTX ‘Sabre Knot.’ The exercise involved more than 30,000 troops from the 8th Infantry Division, V Corps Artillery, 212th Artillery Group and 37th Engineer Group, as well as the 3d Armored Division. It was conducted in an area encompassing Bad Hersfeld, Giessen, Ruessesheim, Eberbach, Aschaffenburg and Fulda. The Division began the problem by crossing the Main River at five different points between Hanau and Aschaffenburg by rafts, bridges constructed by engineers, and by swimming armored personnel carriers. Working in below-zero temperatures, all elements of the Division kept complete communications and continued to move throughout the remainder of the problem. ‘Sabre Knot’ was the largest maneuver since FTX ‘Brandywine.’ . . . The Division underwent a complete revamping in reorganization under the ROAD concept September 1, 1963. Operation ‘Big Lift’ began October 30 and lasted for seven days. The 3d Armored Division acted as aggressors for the 2d Armored Division, air-lifted from Fort Hood, Texas; with action beginning near Kassel, Germany, in response to provocation by ‘enemy’ forces’ patrols violating a hypothetical international border. The Division’s offensive action drove elements of the ‘Hell on Wheels’ Division back to the Main River and delayed a planned river crossing for more than 24 hours. Action such as this highlighted the entire maneuver. . . . ”

It is Wildflecken Motor Pool. I am on duty. I hear the rocks shuffleing behind me. I do a silent about face. I slowly allow a round to slide into the barrell of my M1. The sound comes closer. You cannot see your hand in front of your eyes. Overcast———The sound comes closer. It is now about 10 feet from me…….I wait five seconds before pushing the safety off, with a noticeable metallic click. The wild boar had not heard this sound previously, so he then took his about face and tore up the hill without looking back, surely…….Close call I then could resume breathing…..shalom mel Comradely OUT

My father, Andrew S. Bojanski, served in the 3AD. He landed in France in June (after DDay). He was wounded on September 7, 1944. I would like to find out where in France he was wounded. His discharge papers indicate 2 Bronge Campaign Stars, a Purple Heart, Victory Ribbon, American Theatre Ribbon, European African Middle Eastern Theatre Ribbon and an American Defense Ribbon. He passed away when I was 6. Can you point me in the right direction to find out more about where he was wounded?

General Abrams "and his commanders walked the whole forward defense line" in the Fulda Gap in Fall of 1961 – see last part of this posting. Correction on my second most recent posting: In the corrected area it should have read, “(‘MHI’ stands for the US Army Military History Institute, which is associated with the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, PA. Their home page can be found by copying & pasting the first part of the search created address: carlisle-www.army.mil/usamhi .) Clicking on the “Finding Aids” button . . .” The following regards the subject of military sociology and the Army Military History Institute’s “Reference Bibliographies”. Using the on-line search, successful word search selection(s) generate numbered & mostly cryptically-labeled reference bibliography lists. Accessing such a “numbered & mostly cryptically-labeled” bibliography list via clicking yields a clearly titled set of bibliographies. For example, although the search word set “military sociology” yields no results, entering “sociology” as the search word yields 16 numbered lists. Although List #9 of that 16 has the cryptic title “medic10”, when said List #9 (“medic10”) is clicked on, the corresponding (& much more readable) name is displayed: “Military Psychiatry: A Working Bibliography of MHI Sources”. Taking an example, a List #9 sub-section, “Since 1945”, contains 13 military psychiatry bibliographies. Another list # from the 16, List #5, has the less cryptic title, “Psychology/Soc”. The complete name when the file is opened is “Military Psychology/Sociology: A Working Bibliography of MHI Sources”. An example from that bibliography is Edna Hunter’s “Coercive Persuasion” (34 Air U Rev pp. 100-107). Unfortunately, no book titles incorporating the two words “military sociology” (or the unitary word, "sociology") were revealed in any of the 16 lists. In college, and as stated in a previous posting, I had read the 1965 Coates and Pellegrin book "Military Sociology" (Pellegrin was a professor at the Univ of Oregon; one of the book’s bibliographic references was, “Adj to Mil Life”, A. Hollingshead, Amer J of Sociology, Mar 46; another: “Some Effects of Overseas Duty on the Attitudes of American Troops Toward Host Populations”, by Milton Jacobs & Louis Schatz, Wash DC: Geo Washington U, 1954.). Accordingly, and because I was aware of the Academic discipline, "Social Psychology" (which has explicitly-combined aspects of both psychology and sociology), I next searched on that two word set, "Social Psychology". Seven numbered lists were identified, including List #5, "[Military] Dependents", and List #6, "[Military] Women/Wives". Lists 5 & 6 included references extending from the 1940s, 50s, & 60s, to current. Unfortunately, no specific sociological works were revealed in any of the seven bibliographic lists generated by the search word set "Social Psychology" (Note: no selection at all was obtained in trying the 3 word string, "military social psychology"). Although even allowing for the likely absorption of some sociological works in other categories, possibly located via other (and successful) word searches i.e., such as "society", "soldiers", etc., I FOUND NONE with the word(s), sociology/ical, in the title. I did find sociologist Charles Moskos' 1970 book THE AMERICAN ENLISTED MAN. Sociological works NOT FOUND via any and all attempted search words, include works by the authors, Morris Janowitz, Kurt Lang, George Kourvetaris, Roger Little, Jacques van Doorn, etc. Likewise no mention is made of the periodical, Journal of Military and Political Sociology, which presently is at Volume 32. Immediately below the Army Military History Institute's "Reference Bibliographies" on the page accessed via, as stated in a previous posting, the “Finding Aids”, is another set of bibliographies, namely the Unit History Bibliographies. Entering “3ad” yields the bibliography list mentioned in a previous posting, namely that of the 3AD. One of the identified 3AD bibliographies is, “Sorley, Lewis. ‘Creighton Abrams and Levels of Leadership.’ MILITARY REVIEW (Aug 1992): pp. 3-10.” An excerpt follows: “It soon became apparent how fortuitous it was to have Abrams at the head of the 3d AD, for what we later came to call the Berlin Crisis erupted in the summer of 1961. Abrams had by then been in command of the division for nearly a year. War plans called for the 3d AD to plug the Fulda Gap, an historic east-to-west invasion route that Abrams once called ‘a playground for tanks,’ where the division was expected to blunt the first thrusts of any Soviet or Warsaw Pact aggression. Abrams was ready for the challenge: ‘If there’s going to be trouble,’ he said, ‘I prefer to be right here and right in this division. This is the job I want.’ As the crisis unfolded, Abrams and his commanders walked the whole forward defense line, then took division elements on a ‘maneuver’ in the Fulda Gap as part of the US response to the Soviet threats. One of his combat command commanders remembered how he and Abrams had stood on the high ground overlooking the Fulda River, gazing out at the terrain and in the direction of the border, discussing how they were going to fight the battle. ‘It was impressive to me,’ he said, ‘to listen to general Abe and to be aware of the firm knowledge that he had of the use of terrain and the tactical concepts and the employment of armor and the conduct of a mobile defense. . . . The Berlin Crisis had focused attention on NATO’s defenses in Europe, and specifically on the crucial role of the 3d AD. Abrams was chosen to be the subject of a TIME magazine cover story. The publication noted that it was getting a remarkably consistent view of Abrams. Its correspondent in Bonn cabled that virtually all of the people he had interviewed emphasized that Abrams was not an Army politician.”

I was with "F Troop" as we called it, From 78-81. We were stationed at Francois Kaserne the, I believe, across the street from Divarty HQ in Hutier Kaserne. My housing where I lived with my family was at Pioneer Kaserne. They moved the 333d to Fliegerhorst Kaserne after I left. Don’t remember the commander's name (had three when I was there) But the XO was 1LT Leo Buckon, a rugby enthusiast, the 1SG was Damron, (later CSM Damron). His youngest child was killed by a German on a motorcycle while he was with us. I was one of the four staff sergeants than ran the sound/flash HQ unit, SSG Don Herman. Along with SSG Terry Adams, SSG Greggs and another whose name I cannot remember right now – a Black SSG with an Eastern European wife (maybe his name was Fields?). We were there when they first put females into our Target Acquisition unit in both radar and sound/flash. It was a huge mistake. We had one good female trooper and we called her “Short Round” because she was not quite five feet tall. We also got two of the first female officers in the field artillery. Two butter-bars whose names I likewise cannot remember, except one had an enormous butt and we called her "thunder thighs". She didn't last long as she had a princess complex and was busted for fooling around with a sergeant. The other was an Academy grad; slim, blonde and somewhat shy. Not a good quality in an artillery officer. One of the other LTs we had was called the "Italian Stallion". 2LT Ralph Tucci. He was short and round, had dark hair and glasses, and his favorite expression was "Get outta here". He had the Boston accent really thick. SSG Terry Adams, a native of Texas, used to tell him "You know, LT, I could take you to Dallas, put you on a street corner, and people'd pay money just to hear you talk.” Adams and Greggs went on to Warrant Officer school and probably made it. I was on my way to warrant training when I was detoured into recruiting command (who cancelled my warrant package, the so-and-so’s), got hit by a drunk driver while on my way to pick up a kid to enlist, and was surveyed out of the army on disability. Another name I remember from the unit then was SSG Dave Sturman (radar platoon), with which I still communicate. Our platoon Sergeant in Sound/Flash was SFC Matthew Williams (the Big Molly Whopper).

Very honored ladies and gentlemen

I am a museum director out of Germany and have busied myself for years with the American garrison time from the April to June 1945 in central Germany. I search for veteran, that were here in the last war days 1945 in the use. Field of application of the 1st US Infantry Div was the resins. , 83rd US Infantry Div, 3rd & 8th Armored Div and more single littler American troops units.

I have a favor at you and ask whether you can be helpful me in the search of a soldier or its family.

I seek the military policeman Joseph Jay cloister, born on that 18th 04th 1920 in Chicago. It occupied the cities Pansfelde, gladly ode with its unit on the 18 April 1945 and Ermsleben. In Ermsleben, it had contact with the German administration, especially with a German secretary in the city administration. It was transferred in June 1945 with its unit to Kassel and went 1945 it back into the USA in December. The German secretary was pregnant of it and brought in the summer 1946 a child to the world. This child seeks now its producer, its bodily father. I am herewith as a scientist helpful to produce the contact to the family of the soldier Joseph Jay cloister. Unfortunately I do not know served had it in which army-unit 1945. Confessed is only that it was at the military police.

Perhaps you can help along me and can announce me the address of the family of the Joseph cloister. As far as I was able to bring bereichts in experience, Joseph cloister is in February 1979 in Illinois deceased. Yet its siblings and its other children could be but alive.

Thank you very much for your efforts

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

ich bin ein Museumsdirektor aus Deutschland und beschäftige mich seit Jahren mit der amerikanischen Besatzungszeit vom April bis Juni 1945 in Mitteldeutschland. Ich suche nach Veteranen, die hier in den letzten Kriegstagen 1945 im Einsatz waren. Der Harz war Einsatzgebiet der 1st US Infantry Div. , 83rd US Infantry Div, 3rd & 8th Armored Div und einzelner kleinerer amerikanischer Truppeneinheiten.

Ich habe eine Bitte an Sie und frage, ob Sie mir bei der Suche eines Soldaten beziehungsweise seiner Familie behilflich sein können.

Ich suche den Militärpolizisten Joseph Jay Kloster, geboren am 18. 04. 1920 in Chicago. Er besetzte mit seiner Einheit am 18. April 1945 die Städte Pansfelde, Gernrode und Ermsleben. In Ermsleben hatte er Kontakt mit der deutschen Verwaltung, insbesondere mit einer deutschen Sekretärin in der Stadtverwaltung. Im Juni 1945 wurde er mit seiner Einheit nach Kassel verlegt und im Dezember 1945 fuhr er zurück in die USA. Die deutsche Sekretärin war von ihm schwanger und hat im Sommer 1946 ein Kind zur Welt gebracht. Dieses Kind sucht nun seinen Erzeuger, seinen leiblichen Vater. Ich bin hierbei als Wissenschaftler behilflich, den Kontakt zu der Familie des Soldaten Joseph Jay Kloster herzustellen. Leider weiß ich nicht in welcher Armee-Einheit er 1945 gedient hatte. Bekannt ist nur, dass er bei der Militärpolizei war.

Vielleicht können Sie mir weiterhelfen und mir die Adresse der Familie des Joseph Kloster mitteilen. Soweit ich bereichts in Erfahrung bringen konnte, ist Joseph Kloster im Februar 1979 in Illinois verstorben. Aber es könnten noch seine Geschwister und seine anderen Kinder am Leben sein.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Bemühungen

Is there not some way that you'all could get rid of the non essential traffic; like stuff that does not pertain to the Third Armored Division or Germany or any other military related subject? Great web site, but I'm interested in what my fellow "Spearheaders" have to say, not "Jody" with some meaningless gibberish.

The following is from the book, SOLDIERING: Observations from Korea, Vietnam, and Safe Places, by Henry G. Gole, COL, US Army (Ret.), Dulles, VA: Potomac Books, 2003. "Despite . . . command [safety] emphasis, we killed quite a few soldiers [via situation of a tracked vehicle (APC) driven over a GI in a sleeping bag in the field] in the winter of 1961-1962 [in Germany]." [p. 111] Gole was in an infantry company in 3ID.

Spent some great times there, I just found out that the unit was sent to KG. That must have been a real nut buster. I think the only thing that made the tour there such a interesting time was living in that old place.

Reference the web page http://www.3ad.org/kasernen/area_hanau/hanau.htm

I was/am quite familiar with Hanau, having spent 5 years in the 80s and then 2 from 2001-2003 with the 130th Eng Bde. I could not help noticing the photo posted in the web page above. Unfortunately, the caption is not quite accurate. The large photo of a train station IS NOT that of Hanau. The first clue was the entrance to the U-Bahn. Hanau DOES NOT HAVE an underground train system. The photo looks more like the Frankfurt Main Train Station. Otherwise, thanks Chris Cowderoy (2-8 FA) for posting those great old pics.

I was stationed at the kasern in freidburg, germany. I ended up assigned to the motor pool driving the supply truck. Some of you may remember the trucks name (chug-a-lug). If some of my buddies are out there, Tony Russo,(S.F.Cal.), George Beason Phil Brown (the foosball king from Philly)drop me an e-mail. Remember the foosball and spade tournaments !!! And tent city !!!

Its time to get your registration forms in. We have to give a head count of people attending each meal to the hotel prior to our arrival. Please have your registration mailed to our PO box by 6/15/05. You may still register after that date, but we have to pay for the number of people we tell them are coming to each meal, even if fewer show up. So we are limited as to how many extra meals we can order.

My dad, Joseph Charles Losz from Munhall PA was killed on Sept. 16, 1944 in what I was told was the battle of the buldge. He is buried in Luxembourg American Cemetery, Luxembourg. His military records were lost in a fire in 1973 at the National Personnel Records Center. I am trying to find out just where he died or if anyone out there remembers him. I was only 14 months old when he died and my mother never remarried. Any information would be appreciated. My aunt told me my dad's unit was in a camp and at night the camp was blown up and most were killed. But I'm not sure about this. Thanks Pat Woodley

Recently I’ve used Google.com to do an internet search on the keywords, “3rd Armored Division Bibliography”. At the bottom of the first page of displayed results, under “3ARM”, is carlisle-www.army.mil/usamhi/Bibliographies/ UnitHistories/Divisions/3arm.doc. Opening that address yields a page titled “3RD ARMORED DIVISION – A Working Bibliography of MHI Sources” (“MHI” stands for the US Army Military History Institute, which is associated with the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, PA.) This can be found by copying & pasting the first part of the search created address: carlisle-www.army.mil/usamhi . The result for this is the home page of the US Army’s Military History Institute. Clicking on the “Finding Aids” button on the upper right yields a screen with several options. Clicking on the top option “Reference Bibliographies” yields a place to enter “terms”. Note: the search program seems to operate via recognition of key words. In other words, if I enter the 3 words, Cold War Germany & then press to search, the results are, “No documents matched the query”. However, if I go back to the entry screen & enter Cold War, a list of bibliographies will be generated. And the same thing for just the word Germany. Note: Always go back to the starting page for Reference Bibliographies search entry to enter a new search (the displays will indicate that a new search can be entered at the top on each display page – I have found this to not work). It’s tricky finding key words. Also, the same biblio list can be found under more than one search. Here’s an example of the search range: when I entered the words “military vehicle” I received 6 lists. However, when I entered just the word “vehicle” I received 74 lists ! The word “marking” got 12 lists; the words “vehicle marking” got zero lists. “Military symbols” got 2 lists; “symbols” got 5.

It's been quite-a-while since I've passed through here and decided to drop in again to see if anyone else has shown up.

Looking for those who were on The Rock the same time I was, (HHC 1ST BDE, 3AD 1987-1990). I sure hope I don't have to wait until I'm 50 or 60 before these fellas decide they "wonder whatever happened to old so-and-so". For those who were on the rock at that time: Do you remember those funky little yellow phone books that came from the Brigade Signal Office? I made those!!! If you have one, you'll see my name in it (SPC Shane Dooley)

Roger Seals…. I see your post below and see you knew Mike Diekman. I also served with Mike and I have a few pictures of him that I have scanned from my days in Friedburg. Take a look. I am also looking to get in contact with anyone I have served with at Friedburg. Looking back so many years, those were some of my geatest memories of my youth. Take a look at some of my photos. More to come when I get time to scan them.

The deadline to get our discounted rate for the reunion is 6/4/2005. You must make your hotel reservation by then to get the discount. After that, you have to pay full price. Make sure you make you reservation this week at the hotel, even if you have to do your registration later.

Two items: (1.) In March 2005 the pocket book sized paperback, SECRET WEAPONS OF THE COLD WAR was published (author: Bill Yenne, NY: Berkley Books). Yenne is the author of several military books, including SECRET WEAPONS OF WWII.. On pages 134-35 of SECRET WEAPONS OF THE COLD WAR, under the title “M28 and M29 Davy Crockett”, Yenne states in part, “the Davy Crockett was developed to give U.S. Army infantry units as small as a platoon a nuclear capability. Known informally as the 'nuclear bazooka,' the two weapons were developed as a means of equalizing the enormous Soviet numeric advantage in terms of troops and tanks." Three paragraphs later, the last paragraph of the section begins, "The Davy Crocketts were deployed overseas in Germany with the 3rd Armored Division from 1961 through 1971. However, they were withdrawn from service when the U.S. Army became squeamish about having such a weapon under the command of platoon sergeants. The potential for misuse under the fog of battle was considered to outweigh the potential effectiveness of the Davy Crockett. . . .” Author Yenne recognizes the significance for the 3AD to have Davy Crocketts in the Fulda Gap. On the other hand, it should be recognized that the Davy Crockett was also issued to units other than the 3AD. (2) The 1967 book NATO without France: A Strategic Appraisal (by Carl H. Amme, Jr., Stanford University, Hoover Institution) contains an analysis (beginning on pages 130-31) by Dr. Richard T. Loomis, of Stanford Research Institute, on an operations model of U.S. Seventh Army ground forces. This incorporates the four phases for joining battle, “taught in the Army’s Command and General Staff School at Fort Leavenworth.” Loomis’s model includes the 3 armored cavalry regiments on the Border in the early to mid 60s. These were, going from North at the Fulda Gap to South (to eventually along the Czech Border), the 14th, the 2nd, & the 11th ACRs. Also, a fourth Armored Cav Regiment, the 3rd ACR, was held in reserve between the 7th Army’s two Corps (V & VII), and their divisions. The two armored divisions, the 3AD & the 4AD, covered the Fulda Gap (3AD responsibility) & the areas further south along the East German Border (covered by the 4AD). Behind the 3AD was its V Corps supporting Mechanized Infantry Division, 8ID. Behind 4AD were the two VII Corps supporting mechanized infantry divisions, the 3ID & the 24 ID. Pages 130-131 state in part, “During the reconnaissance phase the three forward, armored cavalry regiments (ACRs), which have been reinforced with artillery and engineers, keep the front under constant surveillance. The U.S. forces in initial contact would be fairly well dispersed—with a platoon or smaller unit guarding various road junctures. Therefore, the deployment would be applicable to both conventional and nuclear war. These reconnaissance units would fight a delaying action in order to give the two armored divisions time to reach their forward position and make contact with the enemy. Even here the armored divisions would be fairly well dispersed and, furthermore, tanks give excellent protection against nuclear fires. {NOTE: Loomis neglected to include APCs in that statement.} When the armored [divisions reach] the front, the three ACRs fall back through the forward edge of the battle area (FEBA) and become part of the mobile striking force assigned to the corps. The two armored divisions then engage the enemy closely, while the three mechanized divisions move into the combat position. . . . ”

Great times at Ray Barracks, Friedburg. Wish I could find some of the guys from back then. Funny how time goes by, and as we are getting older, we look back on those days with fond memories, and wonder where the time went, and what happened to all the guys we shared such a time with.

Was XO of C Company. Also was with HHC, 2d Brigade, 3rd AD as part of the Gelnhasuen Subcommunity and assisted in coordinating many of the modernization projects for the kaserne and working with Herr Lorenz of the Facilities Engineer Dept. Was on duty at Brigade HQ when President Reagan was shot..thought we were going to the front that day..and when Russia went into Poland…Great memories and good times..LTC Harbach and MAJ Winchester were great mentors…Was able to get back to the kaserne in 1995 while on a training mission for Atlantic Resolve..Part of it had been turned over to the local German polizei and the rest was housing engineers I believe..Went to the old GDP and the border town of Rasdorf. The border was no more and went through the town and it was interesting to see how the "other half" (East Germans) had lived..

Have noticed it too. Perhaps many in service at that time did not want to be there and, would rather forget it all. A lot of people I served with were Draftees & really resented being called up.

CO was CPT Koenig, XO was 1LT Christmas, can't remember the two plt 2lts's names… 1SG was Ballesteros, Plt Sgt was SFC Chisholm, and two of our three sqd leaders were SSG Berkley and SSG Burgess… SGT Martin was the 3rd sqd ldr at one point. I have a few pics of kaserne. Delta Dawgs !

My three years in Frankfurt, GE were so far the best in my current Army career. I traveled every chance I could with the family. My experience as the unit armorer was a first for me and I learned a great deal, especially with the 503rd MP Co. I'd do it again if I could.

Here’s a few items; additional detail on one or more later. 1. BG (Ret.) Albin F. Irzyk provides the article, “When the Cold War Almost Turned Hot” in the July, 2004 issue of ARMY magazine. As a Colonel, Irzyk commanded the 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment (HQ at Fulda). The title reference by Irzyk is to the August, 1961 time frame. Irzyk commanded the 14th ACR from March, 1961 to March, 1962. (To provide further perspective regarding the above time frames, the Davy Crockett nuclear mortar didn’t become Army issue until December, 1961, 4 months after the August 1961 Berlin Wall event. Also, the Cuban Crisis occurred almost one year later, in October, 1962.) Irzyk focuses on the August 20th autobahn transit of the 1st BG, 18th IN, 8ID, from West Germany to Berlin. This was orchestrated as both a symbolic gesture and as a relief convoy during the August 1961 Berlin wall issue. Although not mentioned in the article, the Battle Group CO was COL Glover S. Johns, Jr., a highly decorated WW2 combat leader. D Company was commanded by CPT David Hackworth, who later became famous as a highly decorated Colonel in Vietnam. (Of note: Hackworth passed away earlier this month.) Also not mentioned in the article is COL Johns’s action in having the convoy dismount for Soviet inspection; this set an awkward precedent. The convoy arrived in Berlin without incident. Also note: Irzyk is identified as having served in the 4AD in World War II, and in Vietnam. Also, he is listed as the author of the book, “He Rode Up Front for Patton.” 2. BG Irzyk’s account unfortunately didn’t encompass the U.S. military convoy transit incidents on the Berlin route through 1963 following the October 1962 Cuban Crisis. (Note: Some authors refer to the “Second Berlin Crisis” as extending throughout the date range, 1958 – 1963.) Irzyk focused primarily upon the August 20, 1961 relief convoy to Berlin; this is somewhat understandable in the context of his March 1961—March 1962 tour of duty as the CO of the 14th ACR. However, it doesn’t capture the October 1963 incident that narrowly avoided a shooting war in Germany. 3. BG Irzyk provides great insight into the connection between such an autobahn incident (August, 1961; October, 1963; etc.) escalating to a shooting stage, and the likely consequences that that held for both the 14th ACR at the Border, and the 3AD GDP positions, which were next in line behind them. Referring to the atmosphere leading up to the convoy movement of August 20, 1961, Irzyk states in part (p. 48), “[NATO Commander, Gen. Lauris] Norstad was prepared to implement plans for air and ground support [for the convoy] regardless of how limited or extensive.” Two paragraphs later he states in part, “We were holding our breaths. It was not inconceivable that we might soon be in a firefight, so we were leaning well forward in our foxholes. We tried to visualize the possibilities and probabilities.” One of those was identified as, “The convoy could be stopped . . . , or it could be fired upon by Russian forces, perhaps including tanks.” Further on, he states, “If U.S. forces returned the fire, the Russians, with massive troops nearby and at the ready, could escalate the situation by moving to the west in strength.” Referring to any large scale Soviet “onslaught” coming across the Border, Irzyk states in part on page 44, “Because ours was a small and relatively light force, it was a foregone conclusion that we had absolutely no chance of stopping such an onslaught and would rapidly be overrun. Realistically, our mission was to delay their advance . . . By slowing the enemy and gaining time, it would enable heavier forces behind us, the first of which was the 3rd Armored Division, to close up, pick up and join in the fight.” ( More on this in a later posting. ) Two “brief” items: 4. Following release from Active Duty at Ft. Lewis, and after 18 months on a survey crew in central Idaho (Elk City Highway, etc.), I returned to college in the Fall of 1966. A couple of terms later, the professor for 3rd term Introduction to Sociology gave a reading assignment, one of the choices being the 1965 book, Military Sociology (by Coates and Pellegrin). 5. Several years later (1972) the Pocket Book, Army in Anguish, was published. This was a reprint of a series that ran in the The Washington Post newspaper in Sept & Oct, 1971. The authors were Haynes Johnson and George C. Wilson. Johnson is identified as a “Pulitzer Prize journalist”; Wilson as a member “of The Washington Post staff”. Both authors were identified as military veterans; one had been a 1LT arty FO; the other went through Naval flight training in World War II. Pages 19-20 include an interview with Gen. Michael S. Davison, USAREUR Commander, who had “led the Cambodian incursion a year [earlier]”. Gen Davison is quoted in part as follows: “The 7th Army here in Europe is still suffering today as a result of Vietnam because we had to wreck the 7th Army in order to keep Vietnam going.” The interviewer (who was either Johnson or Wilson) then qualifies what Gen. Davision just said: “He meant, as he explained, that the Army never had enough people to support Vietnam without drawing on the 7th Army for replacements. As a result, the 7th Army was left with battalions led by one lieutenant colonel, one major or captain, and 18 to 20 lieutenants. Company commanders were being rotated every three or four months—with an entire company often turning over completely every nine months. The legacy was chaos in terms of morale, discipline and combat readiness.” Note: Amazon.com has copies of the Army in Anguish pocket book for less than $2 at times (postage is additional).

Stationed at Edwards Kaserne. Served under Col Heiser, Col Pappile, LTC Comer, CSM Suenishi, SGM Julian, SFC Watson, SFC Wadley, LT White, LT Henneck, all great people. Worked hard and played hard. We got the job done and had a tremendous sense of why we were doing it. I think of all these fine men almost daily. Hope they have had good lives and thank them for their influence on my life. I'm proud of my days in the Spearhead division and what we accomplished.

Less than two months to the reunion. Please get your registrations in to us so we can start to figure out quantities that we need to order and plan for. We need a huge turnout from the Cold War.

There will be a limited quantity of Lischer Beer on Keg at the reunion as well. For those of use who loved that beer, this is the only place on this side of the Atlantic you are going to find Lischer on tap available. We are also going to have a benefit auction Saturday night to raise money for the Association. If you have something you would like to donate for this, please contact myself or Paul Smith at president@3ad.org . The newsletters are going out electronically this morning, the snail mail versions will follow in a few weeks when they come back from the printer.

I am the niece of Curtis and our family is looking for any information about his capture.We were told he was last seen around the Chosin Resevior. He was reported missing Oct. 16th 1951. He was from Alton Ohio and had a friend named Bob Shelton there with him. Please if you know anything about him e-mail me. My aunt is 80 years old and promised his parents she would bring him home.

Just checking to see if anyone that I knew had signed on lately. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all do it over again? We didn't know we were having so much fun back then and couldn't wait until we "got back to the world" My wife and I moved back to Germany a few years ago. It's really changed alot, unfortunately. John's (down from Drake kaserne) is now a Korean restaurant, Kaiser Str is now a skid row with crack heads laying all over the sidewalks and I think that Germans are now the minority in Frankfurt whit so many Arabs, Russians and Gypsies

I served with A 2-3 FA at the Rock just before we moved to Giessen Germany. What a place this was I still can not believe some of the pictures of what it looks like today. I do not find it hare to believe really as we were leaving the rock. The Germans were already waiting at the gate to get access and rape the concern of anything of value.

LOOKING FOR ZIGGY ZIEGFRIED, DANNY NEWMAN, STEVE GORLEY, RONNIE BYRD, DONALD DRIGGERS, DAVE BANDO…IRA BONIFAY, HILBERT HAYWARD, CHARLIE PULLUM, CHARLIE TUCKER, GEORGE PARRA, Swinging Budingen, Guard Duty at the airfield. Those nitely walks on those dark back roads…through the back gate (Armstrong KAserne). Sometimes stopping to rest at old number "9". Does anybody remember number "9". A beer at the so called NCO club…us helicopter mechanics use to complain because a corporal could go in but not a good ol SPC….Oh well most time was spent in Budingen anyway. How about a Lischer, Romer Pils….to wash down the Schlosick?? and french fries at the hole in the wall. For a young soldier on his first Army tour, 3/12 3ID was a real challange. But what the heck it is all good memories now.

My name is Timothy Johnson. My grandfather George L. Johnson was killed in a car accident in 1952, long before my birth. Not too much is known of his service to our great nation, however his military tombstone is enscribed with Sgt. George L. Johnson, 65th FA BN. WWII. My father stated my grandfather was in the 5th armored division, however that could be mistaken as well. I have very few of his Militray documents, but I know that he went to basic training at Camp Cooke, California, where he was promoted to Corporal. His commanding officer was Maj. Theodore G. Bilbo Jr. His discharge papers show he supervised a 9 man crew on a 105 mm howitzer for 1 year 9 months, before getting demoted (I'd like to know how) and serving his remainding 1 year, 3 months as a military policeman. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Timothy D. Johnson

I came to Friedburg in Nov. of 1955. I also married a German Girl. Elvis Presley joined company D, 1st Platoon in 1958, I became friends with him. He drove me home alot of times while I was there. He was transferred to headquarters Co.because the tank guns might hurt his hearing. I came back to the U.S.A in Jan. of 1959 . Any body that was in at this time, please contact me, thanks.

I got out of the active duty Army at Ft. Lewis, WA (4ID), on 10 February 1965. We were waiting in a day room watching tv, while our DD-214s were being “processed”. News Flash over tv: “VC blow up US BEQ at Qui Nhon; talk of more US air strikes against the North”. The whole room went, “Ah s—!, we’re gonna be extended.” My thoughts at that time were, “OK, then send me back to the 3AD” (the 4ID had ancient equipment & had spent most of January in Alaska for Winter Training since they were a so-called STRAC unit & USAREUR backup, but the Big Rumor was they’d be one of the first to go to VN, to clear room for loading up more units for boarding onto the VN Express. But, the Big Rumor was wrong – the 4ID didn’t arrive in VN until August 1966, 18 months later.). Brief 1965 history leading up to February 10th: 27 Jan: GEN Khanh takes over SVN govt in bloodless coup; 7 Feb: VC attack US compound at Pleiku; Also, 7 Feb: First 1965 US air strike against NVN (& due to Pleiku attack); 8 Feb: LBJ orders evac of US dependents from SVN; 9 Feb: US Marine Bn becomes operational at Da Nang. Back at the Fort on 10 Feb, we were pleasantly surprised when they did give us the outprocessing paperwork that day. Some remained suspicious that we’d be called back that same day, so some took taxi’s off post via side gates rather than chance the MPs dragging them off the Greyhound at the Main Gate for 12 more months or so. More on the 3AD connection to follow.

WOW,over the past three days I have been looking back to a life I lead some 22 years ago when I arrived in Germany to start serving two years at "The Rock" Ayers Kerserne in Kirchgoens and the memories came back as I looked at the pictures of The Rock on your websites and then at the pictures I took while I was stationed there.And as I read the Rock poem what a blast from the past ,I know that I won't feel this way about the two places I just left in Iraq 11 months ago 21years from now but I will be very proud of the time I spent in all these places and the honor to serve my country where ever I was stationed . If anyone served with this unit during this time frame please contact me.kyle912@bellsouth.net.

I've been waiting along time to find some of this information. I served with honor for three years before making poor choices (that I've regretted to this day) that caused my early departure from the military. I manage Grandpa's Compounding Pharmacy (530-622-2323) in Placerville California and have turned my life around and would like to contact some of those who I served with at that time.

The Following was sent to the Publisher of the 2002 book, GIs and Frauleins. The focus of the book centered on the Rhineland-Palatinate area, which borders France to the West, and which included the “40,000” supply/support related GIs based at Kaiserslautern. When I arrived at Coleman Kaserne in September 1962 there were 3 combat battalions stationed on Post: one infantry, one armored, and one field artillery. A rough guess is maybe 2,000 combat troops at Gelnhausen. Had those troops known of all those support troops 200 miles down the road driving around in their POVs I’m sure it would have been inspirational. Here’s my comment to the Book Publisher: In the Conclusion it states in part, "The relative ease with which even the lowliest corporal maneuvered his 1957 Chevy through [town streets] . . . " (p. 230) Please advise Ms. Hoehn that it was precisely because she was analyzing a rear area locale that such occasions as US Army corporals (Rank E-4) driving their own POVs did occur. It may come as a revelation to her, but there was a "Front Line" area in Germany. I refer specifically to the Fulda Gap and the US Army forces that covered the outlets from same. Specifically, I refer to such places as Gelnhausen, which, during the years 1962-64 when I was stationed there, the likelihood of a junior enlisted soldier having a POV was extremely remote. To highlight this, I submit that just 10 miles behind us was the local "rear area" facilities in the city of Hanau . . . on visits to Hanau we were amazed at not only the number of POVs, but also that some junior enlisted soldiers were driving POVs! The US Army installation at Gelnhausen was Coleman Kaserne. It housed approximately one-third of the combat forces of the 3rd Armored Division. To repeat, there was an area covering the outlets from the Fulda Gap in which there were constraints upon the personnel stationed there, and such constraints likely exceeded those for the great mass of support personnel in another area, call it "behind the Front area". Such a “Behind the Front area” extended from just a few miles to the west of Gelnhausen, all the way back to the French Border !! There's a ratio called the "tooth to tail"; for every front line soldier there are a number of support personnel.

Just stumbled upon this site. Great memories of Friedberg and Ray Barracks. Spent many nights and DM at the pizza place outside the gate, San Marino's Pizza To Go, the owners, Jimmy and Manuela were very nice and friendly to the GI's. Was sad to hear about 3AD deactiviation. Thanks to those who take the time to make this site possible.

Addition: The 3AD FA Bn which replaced the 4ID's 42nd FA at Coleman Kaserne, Gelnhausen in 1956 was the 65th FA BN. I assume WL for Wehrmacht para vehicles; likewise for FLAK units — one of my 2nd Cousins (via a shared greatgrandmother) of 30+ years older than me was a FLAK unit commander(LTC)on Eastern Front — further details off line.

Interesting item about the Deutsche Vehicle license plates. Just wondering if Fallschirmjaeger units used a designation other than WL?

(1.) Regarding my reference to Soviet armor plated vehicles blocking the autobahn: these were BTR-152s, all-wheeled “Armored Troop Carriers”. (2.) The original German Army (Deutsche Wehrmacht Heer) unit stationed on the kaserne, following its 1935-36 construction, was an anti-tank battalion (which included 5 line companies). Their vehicle license plates began “WH” for Wehrmacht Heer — in comparison, the license plates for the other branches of the Wehrmacht began, WL for Wehrmacht Luftwaffe (Air Force), and WM=Wehrmacht Marine (for the Navy). Meanwhile, back at the Fort: The kaserne name also included a reference to anti-tank forces – the kaserne name until 1945 was “Panzerjaeger Kaserne” (Tank Fighter, or AntiTank Troops Kaserne). On Panzerjaeger Kaserne was stationed “Panzerabwehr Abteilung 9” (Tank Defense, or Antitank, Battalion #9). Note: A check with www.ask.com provides sources for explanation of the conventions in the use of Panzerabwehr, Panzerjaeger, etc. (3.) When the U.S. Army took over the kaserne in 1945 the name usage was “changed” from Panzerjaeger Kaserne to simply “Gelnhausen Kaserne”. Between September, 1947 and August, 1951 the kaserne was home to the 547th Engineer Construction Battalion (renamed as a combat engineering battalion in August 1948, and assigned as Constabulary troops). For awhile during the constabulary era, the headquarters of the 14th Armored Cav, also assigned as a Constabulary unit, was at the Gelnhausen kaserne. (Internet posted photos show the signboard in front of one of the old German barracks on the kaserne.) The early 1950s marked the Seventh Army once again being assigned to Europe i.e., following its World War Two assignment there. At Gelnhausen the associated event was the arrival from the U.S. of units of the 4ID, and the eventual construction of the five new barracks in the cul de sac. Units of the 4ID on the kaserne were 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, and the 42nd Field Artillery. The name of the kaserne was changed to Coleman Kaserne in honor of a 4ID soldier from the European theater in World War Two. (4.) In Germany, 3AD replaced 4ID in 1956. The 4ID's 1st Bn, 12th Infantry and the 42nd FA were replaced on Coleman Kaserne by the following combat units of the 3AD: Headquarters, Combat Command B; 29th Armored Infantry Battalion; & 33rd Tank Battalion.

Do you have any association members from the 3rd QM Bn. for the period of 1961-62.

I have few pictures of Bremerhaven in 1961-62.

I was given to understand that my high placement in RTT school (Ft. Gordon, GA) was a factor in my being reassigned to Headquarters, Combat Command B (“CCB”; the designation was later changed by ROAD to Second Brigade). However, as a PFC “New Guy” I soon learned there was a certain “transition” period in which I was “on call” to do “other duties as assigned”. These consisted of doing “fill in” work at such places as the Post Radio, and the Post Switchboard. One of the “for the moment” advantages in those assignments was not having to do KP, guard duty, or having to stand for Saturday morning inspections. (However, coming off all night duty on a Saturday morning somehow interfered with the Army’s sense of orderliness & the shift workers were told to find someplace to crash out of reach of whoever was doing the inspection. Places for attempted refuge included attics, basements, or for the daring, the back of a track with the ramp door locked from the inside.) I am sure that some of the old hands avoided such entanglements; maybe they lived in a 2 or 3 man room & put a sign on the door, etc. But “New Guys” weren’t as settled in and sometimes it was best to find a place to hide. I have previously mentioned doing Post Radio watch, which included a nightly land line telephone commo check with Berlin (that’s correct, there was a Berlin-to-Gelnhausen linkage — it may have had something to do with the East German Border being a half hour away from CCB Headquarters, Gelnhausen). The telephone in the Post Radio shack was located within arm’s reach of the Post Radio; this was also a direct link to the Duty Officer at Post Headquarters. The Post Radio “shack” was a stand alone structure, somewhat isolated from the nearest buildings. Regarding the Berlin to Gelnhausen telephone commo check, it took place during the first hour of each morning (“2400 to 0100”). It received heightened significance during times when the Soviets were harassing U.S. Army convoys (&/or trains) on the Access routes through East Germany, namely between West Germany and Berlin (i.e., West Berlin). Soviet interference with U.S. Army transportation vehicles in the Access Corridor, in 1963 for example, could be characterized by such terms as intermittent or sporadic, capricious, etc. Attendant to such acts was always the concern about possible escalation. A surprise “outage” on the telephone land lines running through East Germany could easily portend an incident on the Access Routes, and such an incident could easily transition into an event having international repercussions. In at least one incident the Soviets did in fact block the autobahn with armor plated vehicles. The Post Switchboard (Telephone) was located at the West end of the CCB barracks. Note: I refer to the CCB barracks in distinguishment from the (1950’s) building known as CCB Headquarters, or Post Headquarters, which was in the cul de sac near the 5 early 1950s built barracks that stair-stepped up the hill. The “CCB barracks”, on the other hand, was the furthest East in the line of the original Wehrmacht (Heer) barracks on the kaserne. It was on the East side of the manned East Gate to the kaserne. Years before, the Wehrmacht had used that building as a command building. The original plot plan identifies that building as “Stab (‘Staff’) u. Nachr. Zug”. This plot plan can be found in the book, "Die Panzer-Abwehrabteilung 9 in Gelnhausen und ihr Schicksal, 1935-45" by Gerhard Freund, Steinau-an-der-Strasse: Maerchenstrassen-Verlag, 1996. Unfortunately, the book has been out of print for many years. The telephone switching equipment, etc., in the room adjacent to the Post Switchboard was of German make. Two German employees worked in that area. Their names were Kurt and Heinz; more about them later.

hello, my father, Sam Ochoa was in the service during the war in Korea. He is trying to find anyone with information on two of his friends. Their last names are VOIT and Truhas (sp?). He doesnt have first names, but they were in the 3rd Armored Div in Ft Knox, KY in '52, then they went to Ft. Hood, TX in '53 and then overseas to Korea during '53-'54. These men would be in their 70's and he thinks that they lived in the Wisconsin or Michigan area (Twin Cities). Can anyone help me reunite my dad with his buddies or help me find more information on them??

I searched the hero of hoenfels list from 89-92 I was a "hero of hoenfels" and have the documentation for it, from 7th Army and 4/67th AR bn, but I am not listed, why? we were in the box, and I being in Hq 40 ALOC did an outstanding job. History is history, regardless if you were in the click or not, an officer or not, senior nco or I was an E-5 at the time, lest be fare and just report History correctly 3rd AD was a great div, and a great deal of soldiers did alot of great things E-1/ and above lets not leave out soldiers just because of rank, we all know in desert storm there was a rank requirement for alot of awards, please be fair and just report history, not His-story.

at first: please excuse my bad english, i try my best.

My name is Markus Trepper, I`am 27 yeas old and i live in Altenkirchen, Germany. I`am a member of the local shooting-club, called "Altenkirchener Schützengesellschaft", it exsist since 1845. This town was captured at 25. / 26. march 1945 by "Combat Group Richardson" from the 3d Armored. In these days some things of the shooting-club were lost: One Flag and two of our "chains", one called "Königskette", one called "Schützenmeisterkette". The second chain, called "Schützenmeisterkette", returned at 1955 to us, a Major of the 3d Armored brought it back to the shooting-club.

In this year, 2005, is the 160. anniversary of the shooting-club and we like to aks you and all veterans: did anybody know where the lost flag and the lost chain are? We are looking for these things, because they representate the history of the shooting-club (and not the history of our country!). If you like or need, i can send you some pictures of the lost chain and the lost flag, also one picture of the major who brought back the one chain called "Schützenmeisterkette".

The lost flag carries the name "Altenkirchener Schützengesellschaft", the lost chain carries this name, too, also the word "Königskette der Altenkirchener Schützengesellschaft" and some medals.

Please answer me with eMail if you have any idear, where these things are or how we can find them. At this time nobody knows any name of the soldiers who were in Altenkirchen, or was a member of the "Combat Groub Richardson".

With best regards:

Markus Trepper Germany

I have been advised that in his book COL Gole talks of tracks backing over GIs in sleeping bags in Germany. I copied the following on his book title from a web search: Soldiering: Observations From Korea, Vietnam, And Safe Places Format Hardcover Subject Biography & Autobiography / Military ISBN/SKU 1574888528 Author Henry G. Gole Publisher Potomac Books Inc Publish Date January 2005 HENRY G. GOLE, COL., USA (RET.), PH.D., fought in Korea as an enlisted rifleman and served two tours in Vietnam as a Special Forces officer. He has taught at West Point, the U.S. Army War College, the University of Maryland, and Dickinson College. He is the author of The Road to Rainbow: Army Planning for Global War, 1934–1940.

GRAFENWOEHR . . . Some GIs claimed it meant “Winter Wonderland” in German. . . . Of course, the used car salesmen on temporary loan to the Army (i.e., having been in the Army long enough to wear the arm-bird of Specialist 4 rank) would inform the New-Guy(s) that the Army had set up several such Recreational Areas, haven taken over several of Hitler’s former resort areas, in the old American Occupation Zone of Germany, and that over at the Post Special Services one could sign up for Recreational Area sightseeing trips (tour buses), and depending upon the season, hiking, biking, skiing, or just to go there for general rest and relaxation, and that the Army ran several tourist type hotels at those Recreational Areas. The Army encouraged troops to go to such places, since they were safe areas of wholesome entertainment, and were a reward for having to spend so much time in the Field. The straight faced message was that after putting in one’s time the GI could go down to Special Services and sign up for a trip to one of the Recreational Areas, such as Graf, and the Graf Lodge (part of this sucker-bait message was that at Graf Lodge the Day Room had a huge fireplace and the GIs sat around in big overstuffed chairs relaxing between events). Of course, the attempted portrayal was of a kind of German themed Disneyland with snow. The Winter season transition from the year 1962 to 1963 found combat forces from the 3AD vacationing from their month of being on DEFCON 3 status. The name of this vacation spot: Grafenwoehr. The following are excerpts from the three main U.S. news magazines, Newsweek, Time, and, U.S. News & World Report. From the January 4, 1963 Newsweek, “[F]ive straight weeks of freezing weather. The long, relentless cold wave … reached new severity last week . . . For its sheer extensiveness, this Winter’s freeze is likely to surpass anything seen this century.” [p. 47] From the January 11, 1963 Time, “[T]he most savage winter storms [in Europe] of the century”. [p. 30] From the March 11, 1963 U.S. News & World Report, “All over Europe . . . this is the worst winter in more than a century.” [p. 79]

Further comments on the 1962-64 cohort at Coleman Kaserne, Gelnhausen. As stated before, my tour in Gelnhausen was between Sept. 1962 and Sept. 1964. Within that time frame the following events, among others, occurred: FALLEX 62, the Cuban Crisis (U.S. Forces worldwide were placed on DEFCON 3 Alert from 22 OCT to 20 NOV 1962), President Kennedy’s visit to Fliegerhorst (Hanau) and then on to Berlin and his “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech, Soviet interference with U.S. Army operations on access routes to Berlin through East Germany, Operation BIG LIFT, & the Kennedy assassination. The years 1962-64 were bracketed by two prominent international events, namely (1) the “Berlin Crisis” in the Autumn of 1961, following construction of the Berlin Wall (beginning in August 1961), and (2) the Gulf of Tonkin action in August 1964 off the coast of Viet Nam. Approximately 3 months after the Gulf of Tonkin incident another transitional event occurred, namely the career end of the Soviet Premier, Nikita Khruschev. Meanwhile, life at Coleman Kaserne followed its own patterns of ups and downs. (I can only speak via first hand knowledge from the period September 1962 to September 1964.) Caveats: I make no claim that anyone/everyone at the Post during that September to September time frame is knowledgeable of even parts of what is to follow. Personally, some of the negative things from those 24 months stand out in memory for me more so than do some of the other experiences. Another caveat: It is possible that many who served at Coleman Kaserne in the immediate years both prior to and after the years 1962-1964 share no such memories of events even remotely similar. 1. Having to stand in formation while a delegation walked up and down the lines. This occurred following the rape, if my recollection serves me correctly, of a German nurse in Gelnhausen who worked at the hospital there. This was a mandatory formation for all members of the unit. One rumor later came out that the individual(s) sought came from Hanau (i.e., not stationed at Gelnhausen). 2. On a lighter note, on-Post security at night was the subject of some scorn. Apparently there were on-going problems involving “groups” on Post. These problems were highlighted by individuals who got “surprised” by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The standing joke for various GIs was that the best way to get up the hill to the barracks at night after, for example, the movie, was to wait for the jeep roving guard patrol to approach, and then to fall in behind and double time in hopes of covering much of the distance to the barracks. 3. Back to more somber stuff: I believe the following occurred on a Sunday morning: One career NCO shot and killed another career NCO on the Company street almost in front of the Orderly Room. Those that saw the after-effects cannot be accused of inventing a story. A rumor circulated that the incident was over a German woman. 4. Finally, the following is offered as being the most restrictive requirements for wearing civilian clothes while on pass during the history of the U.S. Army in Cold War Germany: For awhile it was required that if civilian clothes were worn on pass rather than Class A’s, the civilian ensemble must include a sports jacket or blazer, with a representation of the 3rd Armored Division insignia sewn onto a pocket. This requirement was apparently 3rd Armored Division wide during its time of application. Last Comment: Things not to be mentioned in any further detail: The rumor about the German National on the baseball field at night after a German-American Day festival. Also, no additional comments on the substance of the following two rumored killing incidents of GIs: (1) One or more GIs backed over by an APC while in their sleeping bags at night in the Field during an exercise. (2) A too anxious GI climbing on a military vehicle on a transport train of flat cars (as in going to or coming from Hohenfels or Graf) and somehow being electrocuted before the German railway folks had a chance to de-energize the overhead wires. Who knows where these two stories, or accounts, came from.

We were not an Armor unit but we did support nearly all armor units assigned to both the 1st & 3rd Armies, V & VII Corps, 5th & 7th Armd Divisions, 1st/4th/8th//28th/29th/30th/78th & 106th Inf.Div.'s from D-Day+6, liberation of Paris, Lux., the Ardennes & then when I was wounded at the Battle of the Bulge. Question: anyone out there that can share some combat photos of Artillery units in action for my scrapbook?

I just wanted to say, that my grandfather was in the 32nd tank battalion on border patrol, they were told to load up weapons for some reason, and were ready to roll into a small resort town that was being raided by teh russians, they got called back, but there was a recon. person that told me that if he needed to call for backup, that he wanted my grandpa's division to bail him out. My grandpa is George E. Johnson and he served with the 32nd in post WW2 era along the iron curtain and he was stationed in friedberg.

I am a carpenter working on the refurbishment and conversion of a building in the village of Codford in the county of Wiltshire in the United Kingdom. During WW2 a large number of US troops were based in the village and the building was used by them for recreational purposes. One of the servicemen painted a large mural depicting an idealised scene of America – Skyscrapers, freeway, railway, countryside etc.    I would like to contact this artist or a member of his family and send some photographs of his work.  I believe that the US forces in the village were from the 32 armored regiment of the 3rd armoured division.  Can you help me to locate this ex serviceman?

Hi – I hope it's ok for me to post here. I was not in the military during Desert Storm, but one of my very dearest friends was and I'm trying to find him. His name is Reiner Schick and he was in the 3rd Batalion, 5th Cavalry. If anyone knows him, it would be great if you could let him know that his friend Collin from highschool is looking for him and pass on my email address. Thanks so much – for this and for all that you've done for our country.

Having a site such as A3ADV’s which welcomes comments from 50 years of 3AD vets is of course commendable. This allows for the free exchange of ideas, impressions, etc., relating to service in the 3AD. By definition, and within the limits of conventional decorum, this allows for a certain level of dialogue on “the good, the not so good, and maybe even the ugly”. As corny and obvious as it may be, I feel it needs to be acknowledged at times that a considerable variety of experiences can be distinguished among the postings to this guestbook. To continue the comment, such a variety exists within, and is derived from, the various “eras” in that 50-year period (1941 to 1992). An example of such “eras” is identified in Daniel J. Nelson’s book A History of U.S. Military Forces in Germany; Boulder, CO: Westview; 1986. ISBN 0813373336. Nelson’s typology is also used in the more recent book Army of Hope, Army of Alienation: Culture and Contradiction in the American Army Communities of Cold War Germany, by John P. Hawkins [LTC, USAR (Ret.)]; Tuscaloosa: University of Alabama Press (2001, 2005). ISBN 0-8173-5174-4. Two further and obvious distinctions can be made: (1.) Many enlisted G.I.s measure their 3AD service in increments varying between 18 months total service on a tour in Germany, up to 32 months or so tour length there. For most 3AD vets this describes the Germany tour which occurred during their one and only “Active Duty” tour in the Army. (2.) Then, there’s the “cohort” time frame, which, for each individual, covers the precise years they were in Germany, e.g., 1956-57, 1963-65, etc. “Cohort”, as used here, is intended to simply be descriptive of the phenomenon of individuals going through a shared time experience, during an arbitrary time frame, and in a rough geographic location. There are obvious variations in using the cohort description, such as length of shared time; ranges in the geographic reference, etc. Continuing with the obvious theme, there’s obviously a variety of experiences for each individual G.I.’s Germany tour. Obviously, many of those experiences were shared with various other G.I.s in the same rough time frame. Further variety is possibly added in any comparison between G.I.s, namely, via a frame of reference which includes their individual “Home Stations” i.e., the actual Post where they were stationed. There are similarities and differences within all such “cohort” experiences, as well as in comparing between the various “cohort” times (for example, comparing a cohort time of 1956-57 with that of a cohort time of 1963-65; such a scheme also allows for the influence of international events upon a particular cohort experience). I was stationed at Gelnhausen between September 1962 and September 1964. The Army at the time included an enlisted force in which junior enlisted soldiers were either draftees (whose service numbers began with a “US” designation) or “RAs” (enlistees who volunteered for typically a 36 month total enlistment). One day in 1963 the movie “Birdman of Alcatraz” (starring Burt Lancaster) came to the Post Theater. One of the comments made by a G.I. after seeing the movie was to suggest that a variation of the movie could be made titled “Birdman of Gelnhausen” (he meant Coleman Kaserne). Upon reflection, it seems/ed to me that there were representative G.I.s from all along a spectrum, who felt that the requirements of Coleman Kaserne living were beyond their tolerance. Back to the “obvious” theme: It is fair to say that the reasons for this perception varied somewhat among those who were so affected. I recall that the two available “outs” at the time were the AR 635-208 Bad Conduct (Dishonorable) Discharge, and the AR 635-209 General Discharge (Honorable?), which was given for “inability to adjust to military service”. (I think this was considered the “mental” discharge, which seems at odds with the earlier terminology of the mental discharge being a “Section 8” – the nearest use of “8” was in AR 635-208, but as stated, that applied to Bad Conduct rather than “mental” cases. Maybe someone out there can shed light on this.) A lesser range of dispositions covered such things as “temporary breakdowns” in judgment, etc. Some of these, if severe enough, resulted in doing stockade time, However, some who did their stockade time were given a “second chance” at Army service rather than a “bad paper” discharge. I have no idea what happened to the guy from the First of the 33rd AR who, from a likely combination of booze and receiving a Dear John letter, stole an M-60 tank, drove it through the Post fence(?), and made a right turn, which put him on a course for the States. He only got as far as a gasthaus in Roth, which was about a half mile away from the kaserne. He parked the tank in front of the gasthaus and went inside for further liquid sustenance. (I’ve often wondered what reactance might have occurred if he had taken a left turn instead and thus would have been headed for the East German Border, a half an hour away, in the tank.) I will wind this up with mention of a variety of other memories concerning individuals at Coleman Kaserne who seemed to have had unusual experiences. There was PFC G.D. , who brought his wife over when he had only a few months remaining on his tour. Having his wife there allowed him to move out of the barracks. However, he either missed, &/or was late, for a couple of Alerts, and was thus obliged to move back into the barracks on Post, with his wife having to live alone in their “non command sponsored quarters” in whatever remote village it was. Then there was 18 year old Private D.G., who wasn’t in the company for very long before he decided he wanted a “209” . . . so, in his way of thinking, in order to prompt such action he managed to “drop” (“while cleaning”) his M-14 rifle from the 5th story barracks window so it would land on the company street in front of the CO’s office 5 stories below. D.G. was gone the same day – I never learned his fate. I also never learned the fate of J.M.P., a young, articulate, seemingly well-educated lad who clowned around a lot. One day he confided to me that he couldn’t stand it at the kaserne anymore, and that his plans were to get back to the States ASAP. He said his plans included being recommended for OCS (which was at Ft. Benning, GA), and his first step toward that recommendation was to gain the E.I.B. (Expert Infantry Badge). To the surprise of many folks (given his typical behavior when no upper cadre were around) he passed the E.I.B. He had also confided to me that he simply wanted to get back to the States, and that his intention was to flunk out of OCS late enough in the cycle that they wouldn’t send him back to Gelnhausen. He figured he’d be assigned somewhere nearby to Ft. Benning to finish out his remaining months. He did receive the recommendation to OCS, and was soon on his way there. As stated, I never learned his fate.

I served 3/5 years at Coleman Kaseren in Gelnahusen,Germany. I was with HHC 2nd Brigade as a mechanic and later as the Training NCO before I PCS'd to Ft Meade Md. I left Germany Aug 1990 during the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, but had no idea I would end of there from Ft Meade Md and later seeing some of my old buddies from Germany.

I have alot of memories there both good and bad. It was a turning point for me in my life and career.
