I was stationed there between 1974 to 1975. I was at B Company 3rd Infantry Div. 2nd of 15th. It was great time. beautiful country. Fulda, Franckful, Munich, Berchergarden were beautiful places. My friends were, Diaz from Las Piedras, Cotto from Aguas Buenas, Conde from Santa Isabel, my brother Irizarry, Cesar from Humacao, Gelpi from Bayamon, Fernandini, Guarbel, Ruiz from Ponce, a bunch more. Good times.

I was assigned Wildflecken in 1952-53 when The armed forces were integrated. From the 1st Division stationed in Aschaffenburg. Wildflecken what a jolt that station was, to be kind I will say "remote"! On may day we were lined up on the Border expecting a crossing by Russian troops.
. Which was futile to even think, we were prepared and equipped to even slow any crossing down. I believe the Area chief of staff wanted to tell the pentagon, lookie were prepared LOL yea right. Cold Bad weather snow, lived in barracks that had a stove in the room or freeze. I was one of 10 Caucasians assigned to the base as the first integrations of troops. The Top looked at me all 5`9 135 lbs. of me & said "the first day is the only chance you will get to make your bones". Then the co commander a Captain who was west Point. looked at me .I swear he was thinking well this guy is on his way back to Aschaffenburg.
A few common army everyday issues which pop up on any base. Not many because we all knew the importance of integration. I served out the year with the unit, my command excelling in every training mission. My year time overseas was up I shipped out stateside. Miss the friendships and respect we had for each other, but never will miss Wildflecken Germany.

Stationed in Wildflecken 1975-1977 with 498th MP detachment, 2nd AD. I remember the Zwei Tannen Disco. A happening place. Loved my tour of duty in Wildflecken.

Fantastic recall ability. I spent many an evening there. The fussball tables were my main hangout. Was there 1982-1984. Tony's Pizzeria was the place to after the discoteque closed. Five marks for a special and eating it while walking up the hill was the norm.

In case it wasn't brought up earlier in this thread the owner of Jerry's Keller bar was a Stasi informant and hauled off by the authorities after the wall fell. Operational security was our watchword back in the day.

The "Wildchicken" memories are endless.

If you knew someone from 54th Engr A Co and was active with events and outtings please feel free to post also.

Or have any updates on anyone.... We would love to hear from you.

The wives club was very much involved supporting our soliders... and families.

If anyone has any ideas how to reach anyone from during that time please give me a holler thanks.
