Hey Robert, Was scanning through the photos here on the page and came across your picture of the wash rack in Amberg. Saw in your profile that you were with Mighty Mike, and that Fernando Zamirripa is on your friend list here. I served with him in Mighty Mike in 83-84. We have a fb page called Pond Barracks. Would love to have you check it out. We have a lot of memories there. If you want to, go to Pond Barracks on fb and request membership, and we can get you added in.
We were there at the same time. Amazing. I arrived Pond Barracks fall 75, then straight to Hohenfels until M Co barracks were ready to occupy. Left Oct 77. I remember SGT Lawrence (tall, skinny guy with a studder), SGT French, SSG Witwer/Witmer (spoke fluent German, called him Buzzard), SFC Frazier (little stumpy guy), 2LT Cook (called him Cookie Man, Cpt Hill used to gnaw him like a chew toy). I recall some of the faces in your pics. Looking for my album, should have some pics to post soon. BTW, passed Sanford on Disney thing last summer. Sholter
Robert, I reside in Davao City, RP. It is on the big island of Mindanao. Have been here for almost 4 years. Got married to fine Christian lady here. Weather is good most of the time and the dollar goes a long way; not like back in the US. Recently came back to LA for a visit with family and friends. I see you live in Sanford, FL. Traveled there quite a few times visiting friends over in Lake Alfred.
Bob,the last time I was back in Amberg was 2002 with my wife.Pond Barracks is a big apartment complex now.The old mess hall is a german rest.(Alte Kassern)the only other buildings standing are .K troop,
,L troop.Headquarters troop,and the head barracks that when I was stationed there in 69-71 was I Troop with the S1-3also in there.But they are all apartments and a lot of new little houses built.We walked all over the old grounds,no problem.
