I think I may have prededed you in Amberg by about 10 years. I was with the 2d Battalion (that,s what we called them the plus Companies instead of Troops). from 1952 to 1955 and later in Fort Meade - 5 1/2 years total - I was in G,H,,Hq and Howitzer Companies. I really enjoyed my days in Amberg and many times wish I could relive them - or maybe just wish I was young again. Thank for the note
Dave,I do not recall that place.Used to go to ROMA., RING CAFE,and the WEIN STUBB,and SANDROS..The last time my wife and I went back was 2002.Looked anound,the old barracks,all changed and the 2 apartments that we lived in .One downtown and one in Gailoh.
It was a great growing up experience, for me and more than that I enjoyed that time. Yes I have been back many many times. I married my wife there over 46 yrs ago. I did not stay in the Army but skills I picked up while in the Army stayed with me my entire life.
