This old WWII bomb shelter was outside our barracks at Rivers Barracks, Giessen, Germany. They use to call our post "The Zoo".

Interesting shot, Barnzie3.

When were you in Giessen? I was at Rhein Main AB from 1989 to 1994.

Cheers, Leo

Hi Leo, I was in Giessen from Feb 1980 to Sep 1983. It was funny when I seen your name as we had a SGT Roundtree in our firing battery in Giessen. I was also in Ludwigsburg from 1986-1988. You brought back a lot of good memories. I'm going to have to hunt for some old photos now in my boxes that have been put away for years! Do you remember a small town in southern Germany where they did a lot of Christmas stores and displays? I have photos of that town, but can't seem to remember the name. I know it had a wall all around the town. Anyways, take care and I hope to see more of your pics!
