Last I heard CPT Miller was a COL, MAj Weber retired as a LTG, LTC Marcy is in Alaska as a retired BG, CPT HAszard made Col, CPT Cleboski got out of the service Chief Sawyer got out of the service. Don't know about the rest.

If you were never there, you wouldn't know that there was ever a post there. There's a small monument close to where the front gate was if I'm not mistaken.

I know times have changed, but was sad to hear that Pond barracks was no longer. Those two years there changed my life. For good and bad.

I can not beleive the size of Amberg since I departed from there in 1964, here it has been 44 years since I left there. It was a little town when I departed from there. I was looking at a satellite photo last night and it is a monster of a town. I pulled off a photo of Pond barracks, unless some one has seen it lately you would not know it. I am going to up load a copy of the Pond Barracks area for all to see. I'll make a album of Amberg Post.

I saw a recent picture of the post area, there was a restaurant where the old mess hall was, and the rest were apartments, and looked very nice.

Iwas there when we closed down the camp, but had left to Ft Bliss ehen they closed down the barracks. It was used for refugees then turned into apartments.

When was the Camp closed down, I heard in 92? Tommy were you there when they turned Pond Barracks back over to the German Government. I have been told that after we departed that it was used as refuge for displaced people an that they tore it all to pieces.
