I am from Austin Tx. and was stationed there from about 1978-1979. I traveled a lot so I did not spend much time in the village. I remember the long winding cobblestone road down the hill to the village where there was one club and 1 young lady that was the town Queen nicknamed "leggy Peggy",who was pursued by every G.I. on post. When I first got there it snowed in June which shocked me. But no bad memories from Willie Reed.

Brings back one of my favorite lines when I'd run into somebody who stayed at tent city during a range week or FTX. They'd ask me who I was with and I'd say the 54th Engineer Battalion with the disclaimer, " I don't go to the field because I'm stationed in the field". Got me weird looks every time.

My time at WTA with the 54th was the best unit, worst location and worst weather.

I was stationed in Wildflecken from 1982 to 1983 with B Company 54th Eng. At the beginning I did not like it much but once I started having friends I could say those two years were some of the best in my life. I enjoyed the beer at the Kreuzberg a Monk Monastery. I sure miss my friends of my squad. I had a great time. Now that I am retired I will take my wife to Wildflecken. Also looking for guys who served in B Company 54th Eng from 1978 to 1985.

I remember this guy. We where drinking at the bar one night. He cracked a bottle over my head and I have the scar to prove it. Got drunk that night and was put in a holding cell and woke up the next morning with the door wide open. I was questioned the next morning. The MP s showed me several photos and asked me to pick out the picture of the guy who struck me with the bottle. I picked out the guy. I asked why he was wanted so bad and they explained to me that he was wanted for hooking up the explosive to the commanders office. I am glad to hear that he got 47 years. This is PFC James Lopez was in Charlie company from July 1982 to December 1983. I am currently with the MPD in Minneapolis MN. E-Mail srjamelopez@q.com

With A-54th 81-82. My Platoon Sergeant was jealous you guys had a horse shoe pit so we built our own between the upper and lower barracks. You guys also had a grill, but we weren't allowed to build one. It was the only time the dining facility was across the street and the motor pool was so close. Usually Engineers were given the MP farthest away from the barracks as possible. Even the re-enlistment office was cool and in the basement of the DFAC. Met (then LTC) Daniel Crisman one day because he was out battalion commander. Ran into him ten years later at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO when he was the Engineer Center Commander and a Major General.
