I was stationed at Monteith Barracks in the mid 60's in Company 'B', 2nd/37th, 4th ARMORED DIVISION. One day me and a friend returned from Furth to have dinner at Monteith's Mess Hall for the 2nd/37th. We were in the 'chow line' with our civilian clothes from town and had our combat boots on. A certain Sergeant, Cheney, a good man we knew and liked stepped into the 'chow line' and saw us. He came over to us laughing. He said, "Man, I know it's getting tough in town when you guys start wearing your combat boots to town!" WE enjoyed a laugh and all went into the Mess Hall. I feel we enjoyed good food by our 1st class Cooks at the Mess Hall. Thanks folks.

I worked at MBB/Deutsche Airbus from 1989-1993. I thoroughly enjoyed working there and the high standard of work carried out was truly amazing. I have never seen such high quality in aircraft repair and overhaul. It's a pity that Lemwerder was treated so shamefully.

I was stationed at LaMartinerie, Chateaurox/Deols, France from Nov 1952 to October 1956 and then returned as a civilian on the same base during November 1958 through October 1963. From there to Getafe, Spain with CASA overhauling F-100s, C-130, F-86, T-33s and F-102 (the latter 2 in Seville, Spain) until April 1966. From there to the UK, RAF Molesworth, and was there from 1966 through February 1972, then back to Spain at Torrejon AB, until 1975 then back to England (London) until 1 July 1978 and then to Ramstein AB, Germany until 1982 and then moved on to Frankfurt, Germany until August 1988 and retired from there. What a life and your photos/stories brought back many memories. Thanks for all. Would also enjoy hearing from people who were in the same area(s) as I during a similar period.

I served here from Dec. 1963 to July 1965 with the 504th Ord Co. 87 Ord battalion. Troop requirements for Vietnam broke this unit up and some were retained in Germany until time to rotate back to the states. I left Germany in 1966.

This is a uniquely fascinating site. My father, James C Dudley, 460 BG 760 BS, was a navigator aboard B24s flying out of Spinazzola, Italy in 1945. Between 5 Feb and 24 Apr of that year he flew 27 missions before returning to the US in June 1945. Thank you for a look into his past.

This is a very interesting site. During 1960 I was stationed in Germany with the British Army at 2 locations built on former Luftwaffe airfields. The first was Loddenheide/Munster and the second was Fliegerhorst/Detmold. Also when I had the time I visited many former WW2 Lufwaffe airfields such as Handorf, Achmer, Rheine, Vorden, Alhorn and many more. Being in the Military made me less suspicious!!

My dad was stationed at Dreux AFB and I was born there in 1959. Would love to see photos but I'm not sure it's still standing.

My dad flew B-17 bombers out of Sterparone Airfield in Italy during WWII. Very exciting to see photos of the planes and airfield. Awesome website. Discovered this by accident. Thank you very much.
