When I use to take out my patrol from Gates, we use to pick up a schnitzel sandwich from along our patrol route, they made the best and largest, I loved the old farmers bread the round loaf. I have tried to fine some here in the states, no luck. During the winter I would have a jar of cherrie hot peppers to keep us warm.

Hello Mike, CRS'S is Can't Remember S==T, the start of Alsheimer.. to answer the others, the taxi driver I new in Amberg was fritz and he owned a gasthaus in Amberg. The driver from Gates I do not remember, like Fritz I think he had a Gasthaus also going into Mark-t

Anyone remember Queer Willy"s??The little German store on the way to Nurenberg.Always a pit stop when I was at Amberg.

Alright I'll bite, what the hell does CRS mean? Ah yes, Brand and Marktredwitz. When we would go to Gates, a buddy would run the club and I frequently went with him into town to pick up brochen and wurst.

I guess if you think about it, Mercedes was a rather common car there. I'm pretty sure this one was out of Mark-T. I spent more time there than Amberg, although there are some periods of time that others could fill in for me. I spent 6 weeks in Nurenberg Hospital eating through a straw.

Thank you Tom.
Hey Wayne, do you know this guy? What was his name? Being stationed at Gates for many months, I went into town alot. Unfortunately, I don't remember too many return trips. There was this gasthaus in Mark-T that had the best goulash soup. Lots of black bread. That, and the flip-top beer. Oh boy!
