Should have said 78

I was at Pond Barracks about 10 years ahead of you.  Feb 66 to Aug 68.

Hq Troop, worked in the PLL Office of Squadron Maint and then in the S-4 Shop.

I served in I Troop from 1974 thru 1976 

1989 to 1991 hht and s4

I was in L TRP. From fall of 77 to 1980 . HQ PLT Maintance.

I served 72-75, HHT Support Platoon.

Thanks for the replies. I doesn't look like there are many on here from Amberg.

We are here, but the issue as I see it a lot of us from I Troop were at the Burg in the early 70,s.

I was stationed there 1974-1976. Times were different in Germany then. Amberg was a different kind of place.

The Border duty was great!!!!! When Pond Barracks was being up graded in 75 we got the chance to spend 6 mos at Camp Rotz , I was in heaven. When I was stationed in K-Town in 88 I drove back to Amberg on a weekend things had changed. No more Hawaii Bar, No more Micky's Strip Bar in Graff. Just glad I was there when we had M551's.  


  • I was with M company 1st Plt. from summer of 78 until summer of 80

78-80, 81-84  K, L, HHT. Just couldn't get enough!

Bernard Turner, some how I lost your post.

I responded and it seems to get gone also.

They were remodeling the Barracks while I was there.

We were the last barracks on the right as you came in the front gate.
We left Amberg in mid Fed 76 and didn't get back until May just ahead of an AGI. That is another story in itself. We spent about 100 days a Rotz then an off season gunnery, then a couple of field exercises before going back to Pond Barracks.





This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
