Default The Wall: Nurnberg, Germany

Any of you here ever stationed around Nurnberg knows what The Wall was....right?

Well, there's street view there now on Google Earth, but the...ah,....uh....wares on display in the windows are blotted out.

That's really creepy. What's creepier still is that I found on Google Earth like I knew where it was! But, it's been over 40 years since I was there!

I was there once a month every month while I was stationed at Monteith Barracks.
I was real young back in those days.

When was that? I was with C 2/37th Armored at Monteith in 1970.

Default The Wall: Nurnberg,

I too was with C company 2/37th. I was Sgt Cole the gunner on the platoon Leaders tank in both 1970 and 71. I went back to the states right after Tank Gunnery in 1971.

Really? What a coincidence. I was first the loader, then the driver, then the gunner on tank 33, I think. In any case, I was the gunner at Graf that summer and we fired 3rd best in the battalion. I can't remember any of the NCO's or officers though, except a young 2LT right out of West Point named Patton.

I left there in September, 1971 for Vietnam.

Default The 2/37 Armor

I remember Lt Patton very well. One night I was pulling CQ duty and was suppose to sign the form on the arms room door every hour. The first time I went to sign it I found that it was full with no place left for me to sign. Patton was the duty officer that night and when he saw that I had not signed it he wrote it up in his report instead of coming to see me. I was charged with derelection of duty and had a day in court but I had a good defense lawyer and I beat the charge. Patton stayed away from me after that. I remember a E6 named majeskski who was suppose to have been in the German Army during WWll , I hated him. I also remember a 1st sgt named Goodwin who should of retired before he did. I remember a Black Sgt. Named Joeseph May and a good guy named George Sullivan. Then there was a misfit private named Deason. I can picture the Company Clerk whose name was Jim Strickland.

As for me I was a very young Sp4 when I was at Graff in 1971 and was a gunner. Later Sgt Goodwin picked me to attend the 4th Armored Division NCO Academy and was promoted to Sgt.E5 upon returning back to the Comany. I was skinny ( 130 lbs) and was picked on by just about everyone. I lived in the NCO Quarters at the Barracks and I drank allot, spent allot of time at the NCO club. I was regular Army and had enlisted instead of being drafted, everyone thought I was a Lifer because I did my job the best I could. In Agust of "71" I returned to post from graff before everyone else because I was getting out of the Army and on the 18th of that month I got out and went home.

Sgt. Cole------ Later I was
Owner operator of Cole Trucking
Then part Owner of Cole's Auto, Truck and Tractor Repair.
