This is a building across the valley at the RCAF 3 Wing Air Base. Our Gym at Kreuzberg Kaserne was of a different architecture design adjacent to the Athletic Field facing the Post Theater. I really enjoyed my time there in 1963/64. In July, 1964, my Section was transferred to the 6912th Security Squadron at Tempelhof AB in West Berlin. WOW!!! What a great new duty station. After 9 months there, we were reassigned to Shemya AFS, Shemya Island, Alaska for a 12 month Remote Tour. Did we do something wrong?? No, just needed more experienced personnel out there on the remote island. After that I did not re-up.
I was in Pirmasens for a few months in 1967. Beautiful countryside. Parkbrau was one of my favorite beers.
I worked at the Depot and lived in Strassburg Kaserne from Aug '67 thru Mar '69. I remember this as the HQ bldg, with all the admin offices. It also contained the IT Dept., which had no budget for air conditioning, so fans blew into the rear of the "computers" to keep them cool. My parking space was under the double window on this end of the bldg. Hard to believe almost everything is gone at the Depot and the Kaserne. Sounds like lots of changes for the whole area. I guess 50 years will do that. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful area with many great memories attached.
Ein beeindruckender Tunnel, der Stempelkopftunnel wurde um 1930 fertiggestellt (?)
Wenn ich es richtig verstanden habe, fand die letzte Fahrt 1988 statt ?
Über dem Tunnel war ursprünglich eine Inschrift montiert.
This is the old Bitburg AB Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratory (PMEL). I was assigned there 1979-1982. We were about 10 miles from Bitburg AB and had to commute from base to the Lab but loved the woods around us to take walks in at lunch. The actual building is about 225 meters up the road from where the picture is posted.
I spent a little over 2 years here in 1968-1969. A lot of time in "the Gardens" Gauesthouse across the street. Had great times.
