Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
I pulled 1 month guard duty at Site 33 and heard so many rumors
of what was there.What do you troops know about that place?
is this the one your talking about?
if it is this is NATO Site #5 near Fliegerhost Kaserne outside of Hanau.. they stored Nukes there.. and if not all the NATO nuke starage sites looked much the same
I was one of the techs inside this sight at Fligerhost Kasern ,iwas stationed at pioneer kasern with A Btry 6/40th Arty ,3rd Armored Divison,icant go into to much but our nuke rounds were stored >We use to go into the bunkers 2-3 times monthly to change the desacent on all war resv Rounds This took place 1965- 1967 I left for VietNam <val Oshea>Also iwas a Tech with HOW BTRY 2/2 ACR BAMBERG SEPT 68-DEC 69,THEN WENT BACK TO Viet Nam,iwas gun chief,also Nuke weapons Tech
No,actually it was in Bamberg.If I remember correctly,it was out past where the Theatre/PX
complex,not Main Post,but I guess for all the units up our way. It had 2 or 3 bunkers inside
a double fence though. If you took alittle extra time and shined your boots for guardmount,
you didn't have to inside the perimeter,but got gate guard(nightime hours) or outside
perimeter guard(alittle hooch out in the woods.),which is what I got all but 1 time I had to go
inside.I was there when the Israelis were killed at the Olympics.We were on high alert then.
We sure went by truck,but we had guys from all different units guarding there. Nickel and Dime arty.54th Inf.,
even had 3 guys from 1/2 Cav.How they got there is by me. The Guard bldg had trees and vegetation growing on top, so from the air it couldn't be seen. There were 6 little guard shacks inside the perimeter, and 1 guy
in each. 2 roving NCOs walked between the fences checking to see that noone was asleep. We did 24 hours on and then were transported back to our regular barracks for 24 off. That continued for a month.
