I was stationed on Fliegerhorst from October 1983 to March of 1990 in the 3rd Armored Division in the 503rd Avaition Battalion. Is it possible to get some locations on the Kasern where these photos were taken? The frame of reference is gone because some of the buildings are not there.....

cuzinaddie - Frame of reference - From the lead picture (of me under the Zum Fliegerhorst sign), I drove in the entrance road to the gate (locked). There are a couple of pictures of the gate and looking in the fence to the right of the gate. Then I walked through the fields along the fence line going left from the entrance gate until I was able to take a picture of the building that I lived in when I was stationed there (HQ & Company A, 122nd Maintenance Battalion, 3rd Armored Division).

I was there from november 1970 to may 1972. was in hq company. i was a clerk typist in the bat headquarters. i finished up as a truck driver my last three months. while there, i bought three motorcycles, bringing the last one home, a 72 750 honda. i kept it fifteen years.while there i put 5,000 miles on it from march 72 to mid-may 72. talk about a blast. i remember some of my friends, tom bruton, from canada, ernie seewer, and keith ux. any of you still around. my name is rene broussard. think of it, a french cajun from louisiana, in germany, riding a japanese motorcycle. had a blast! i was exempt fom duty, had a wonderful sergeant major, granville b. wray. what a great man! i could go on and on.

thought of a few more things, my barracks were toward the rear on the left. the last building behind the barracks was the nco club, but was soon to be moved. headquarters where i was assigned was even further back, right in front of a recovery vehicle. i remember to the right was the airfield. you could ride the train to frankfurt for about 35 cents then. me and my best friend, tom would leave each friday afternoon, on our motorcycles by just picking a new place on the map. we went to innsbruck, paris, cologne, and many other places. i lost track of all my buddies, sure would like to go over old times with them. at that time, the germans either loved you or hated you, there was no middle ground. by the way, my 750 was not an american version, and it would blow all the american 750's away. thanks for the memories.

I was with H/A 122nd Mt from 68 to 71, in the 2nd barrack from the NCO club. Was there until they started remodeling the barracks. I was an E-5 so they let me move off post. Moved in with the woman that I am still married to today, and they said that it wouldn't last! It's great to see these pictures, but the place sure doesn't look the same. It was great duty for me, loved being over there. Drove a 5 ton tractor-trailer, and saw a lot of Germany for free. Thanks for posting the pics.

Thanks for the photos.
I was stationed there from 1981-84 with C Battery 1/32 FA (Lance) and lived right there in bldg. 1322!
I remember many-a-night as an 18 year old, walking (staggering) back from Pepi's and Max Club on JFK Strausse at 0200 and running PT the next morning through that arch in the barracks at 0515...
Looking back, those were some of the best days of my life!!

My unit was the 1st Missile Battalion, 39th Field Artillery, a part of the 212th Arty Group. Our barracks was the largest center one adjacent to the south side of the complex and our equipment area was along the NE diagonal near the perimeter. I served there in 1962-63, during the time when President John F. Kennedy came for lunch the day after his famous Ich bin ein Berliner speech. My unit honored me as their representative to attend that luncheon, held at the headquarters mess of the 212th Arty Group.

Our Corporal Missile (liquid fueled) was fazed out a few years later in favor of the solid-fueled Sergeant Missile.
