Nice, Glenn.....but if you want to impress me, give me directions to that House Of Ill Repute that was right across the street!  LOL...

And by the way, Bob, if you're going back for a visit, make sure you stop and see the museum they have set up in Mödlareuth.  The guy running the tours in English was formerly a Gak, and has some wrong information, but the tour is well worth it.  I've included a few pics.

Wonder how many of us took a ride in this old girl (sorry I couldn't rotate the pic)?

I never had the guts to steal one of these...and now it's TOO LATE!

Along with loads of restored vehicles in this giant shed, they have maintained the grounds exactly as they were before reunification (with the exception of the MASSIVE wind turbine that has been erected on the hill).  It will bring back loads of memories - I guarantee it.

Does anyone remember the name of the barracks or kaserne we stayed at while in Hof..?  or the sector we patrolled for that matter..?  I would like to find it on the map.

Hi Jeffrey, Long time. I was E Trp 3d platoon leader back then before transferring down to Nurnberg to be the Regimental Ammo Officer. SFC Kroner was my platoon sergeant. I have had contact with a few of the guys from my platoon but not many. Some of the troop are no longer with us.

Thanks, Bruce.  My son, who was like 8 years old at the time, said that he thought it was Warner II.  He just was there in April on vacation with his family.  The place sure has changed.  The housing area is now a refugee camp enclosed by chain link fence and the occupants throw rocks at folks outside the wire.

Wayne, Warner Barracks II
Comment by Wayne M. Watters on May 1, 2017 at 8:53pm

Can someone tell me what the name of the kasern for 2nd Squadron in Bamberg?  I remember the one across the street was Warner Barracks.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Toujours Pret!

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.
