Someone has asked the name of the gasthaus at the bottom of the hill.  It was Jetta's.  Trip down pretty good, coming back up....not so good!

In 83, the building across the road from the main gate was the taxi stand and some little shop.  The other buildings were gone and you could not even tell that they had ever been there.  That area was used for training.

That is the EM club, the DP camp and Peat's Taxi + can be seen across the road. The last building in the 1st photo is the building the PX was in.

Daniel,that is the first picture of a building across from the Guard Gate that I have seen. Thanks!

The Rock was a huge unforgettable experience for all those that served there or maybe it was being a Dragoon. People willing to lay down there lives for the comrades 1st and country second. If I had to do Battle I would want to do it with you guys.

I saw the Sheridans ,but, never had the pleasure or displeasure of crewing one. I remember my DI SFC Helms at Ft. Knox ( highly decorated Vietnam Vet) saying they were pieces of shit. He also told "You bone heads are all going to die fast if do not listen to what I am telling you.

There are about 75 more photos from that time frame if you go to my page and check out my photos. :)  Merry Christmas To All.

Rollin C. Bammer    I think this is a photo of that alert.  When I was there, 61 to 64 D Troop was in the 2nd. building on the left and most of the Maint section was on the 2nd floor, here is a photo of the Gate from my window.

There is a band called Boys to Men and I'm sure that they have grown up to men, or at least what passes for a man nowadays. But after a few weeks at the Rock, I knew what being a real man was and what a true friend is. I can't find friends of that caliber anymore. Hell, these dweebs wear more "Product" than the ladies do. The Wussification of the U.S. in full throttle!
