Did you guys know about the man hole cover , between A Troop and the path to the PX, when knocked on a German engineer (civilian) would sell you beer after hours. We also had a stash of beer under the Kronach border station.
(1985-89) On the North side of the road, left for you tankers. A, B, chow hall, C and HQ's. South side, Right combo D & How Battery. Flag pole was in the field across from the corner to Sq HQ's. Have a Merry Christmas
1962 we had only M48A2 's in 1962, the M60's did not show up until mid 1963 and yes they slide too. Happy Holidays to you all.
Might I add that it warms my heart to see some of our veterans showing that fine patina that only comes with age. It is really good to hear from you!
It was April 14, 1945 that the battle for Bayreuth began. 2d Cavalry was to the south of Bayreuth screening as the 11th Armored Division attacked from the north. Next day C Troop accompanied the 71st Infantry Division in mopping up Bayreuth.
Paul has it right. Next was the chow hall then came A B C. Speaking of 62 do you remember late Oct. 62 when the alert siren sounded and they told us to take every thing. I had never seen a M60 sliding sideways between the barracks and picking up the foot lockers then scream out the gate? And little did we know how close the Cuban crisis was! A Trp 61-63 Merry Christmas to all :)
Been a long time since I commented nhere. I also knew the fire chief in1955 when Iwas there. He told severa lof us that the first American he saw was a tank coming out of GoldKronach which was across the valley from the motorpool. That was in April or May of 1945. Wishing all you Troopersa Merry Christmas and a great Silvester.
No idea where that's at, Hippe, but have a safe trip and a Merry Christmas.
Wishing all of you that read this a Merry Chrismas and a Happy New year we are leaving for Aygt on monday for one week
Are we speaking of across from the main gate, like Pete the Pirate or the taxi stand, can/t remember his name or are we speaking across from the gate guard house, across from the gate shack was the 1st bldg. on the right, was the enlisted club, I spent a lot of time at both places.
Littlejohn, you are not crazy, but I can't say the same for that comrade fire chief, he was nuts when we were there, no telling 20 years later!!

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.
