Hi Tom - Chief Crump here, I was with the first Sq. on the rock. But I do have a few pictures from Pond barracks I would like to share with you. the Germans definitely had a knack of building their Kaserne at the best looking locations. But we still have something in common I was a tank commander for many years before becoming a company motor Sgt.then 1st squadron motor Sgt. and then finally went for warrant officer. Hope you enjoy attached pictures - Dragoon for life - Chief

  I believe that SGT Barton was there when I was there also 71-73. I think his first name was Bill or Billy. He helped get me promoted to spec 4 then later to E-5.
