I was stationed originally in Bamberg 2/2 CAV, F Troop, which meant Camp Hof, Coburg, Graf and Hoenfels, The Witches Tit at the tri-zone.... At the end of my tour I was transferred to Merrill Barracks to play in the band 79' - 80'. What a great ending of a memorable tour on the border. We also had a rock band that played some out door concerts and at the NCO. I have to thank my First Sargent Bullard at Bamberg who let me transfer. I remember the plaque to his office: "I may not be God, but God ain't AIRBORNE!"

Just signed on to "Nuremberg" group. I was a mis-assigned 11B. Worked at HHC as Company clerk, across the parade ground at Border Ops, then to Feucht AAF, the Border Tour program at Hof, and ended up at M Co in Amberg. I used to pick up the new guys at the bahnhof and get drunk at McDonalds when it opened. Ronald McDonalod didn't speak a word of english. HA!

Sigmund, brother troopers. Sigmung glad your wife's doing well. A Merry Christmas to you and everyone on the Base. Jeff, when I was assigned to S-3 I used to spend a lot on time in ordinance. They did me some solid favaors for me. I had Hq 3 painted, they put doors on the jeep and over time put slip covers on the seats and a big regimental crest on it. When Sgt Maj. Chesser left I was in tight with SGTM Fithgerald and had some serious favors approved for the guys in Ord. We had a great arraingment.

Sounds like my dad, Jeff. He was the motors officer for 1st Squadron, 2d Cav in Bindlach, 1953-55. My brother shot out all the motor pool windows with a slingshot. Spent my first birthday with the 2d Cav.

20 years later I'm back in the same place and spent my 21st birthday with C Troop.

y dad was assigned to 116th Ordinance when at Merrill Barracks.  I know he has many great memories of Nuremberg, as I myself do.  Though I was only 5 when we got stationed there, we left when I was 11.  I thought it ironic that his son would wind up being assigned to the Cav in Bamberg 7 years later.  He was originally assigned to 11th ACR in Viet Nam, and had always said, once Cav, always Cav.  I am sure he would wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year, I know he worked on alot of your vehicles and had a great many motor pool parties when he was there.  Merry Christmas all.

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.
