He may be talking about the new Barracks further up the road.
That was the EM/NCO Club. My barracks (C Troop) was right across the street. The DP camp was long gone before I got there in '74. Didn't even know there was one until I heard about it on Dragoon Base a few years back.
Eric, click on the view all tab below the photo on the main page.
how do you get to the photo's page?
Concerning basic loads.(2009 comments) When I commanded How Battery. We were required to leave the compound in Bayreut with 50 % manning fully loaded within minutes. The rest of the Battery personnel followed in the Supply and Maintenance trucks. Each howitzer had its ammo, powder and fuzes aboard. Our other ammo was always maintained at the ammo area on the Rock on the 5 ton Ammo Trucks. Etc. I remember a lot of what Dutch Falk and others have said. During the 60's and before the border was an intense situation.
Concerning LT Warner. I don't have any personal knowledge, but each Company/Troop/Battery has a Unit Fund that is managed by the Commander. When you assume command, you have a complete inventory which includes the Unit Fund and all its property. When I assumed command of How Battery in 1965, the Unit Fund Book had his signature a few years before. That means he commanded How Battery. I also remember we were not allowed to wear a red scarf in Bayreut since he used to walk to work wearing one and the Germans asked that we never display that scarf again in their town. Later, when he would go to trial, the Squadron had to escort him. Major Redmon was his escort in 1966. We all know the SOB needed the death penalty, but...
Rest in Peace Trooper
Thanks for letting us know Mark. R.I.P. SGT Major Mike Schoenbrun.
Rest in peace, Sgt. Schoenbrun.
Hello Mark: While I do not recall Major M. Schoenbrun, I was stationed at Bindlach from Feb 1958 to Feb 1960, I do appreciate that you all out there are still making efforts to keep our remembrances alive through this site. I remember that I once painted that entire motor pool maintenance shop floor to earn a day off of my choice. Anyway, thank you all for the memories.
