I jumped into Wildflecken more than once with the 509th Airborne ABCT. On July 15, 1976, Charlie Capps and Mike Rohrer collided coming out of a C130 and died in a jump there. I think there is a plague beside DZ Hammelburg remembering them. Both good men. Charlie was a close friend.

I was never stationed at Wildflecken. Vicenza instead. I remember going up to Vilseck for a school around 97 timeframe and spending a weekend driving around one of my classmate's old stomping grounds.

Wildflecken had long since closed down as an American base, but the housing areas were full of cars with European plates and people from several different countries. Funny thing was all the houses still had names of their previous American occupants on the side. "SSG Jones, SGT Smith, etc".

I truly enjoyed myself and if I could do it again with the same people and both the 11th ACR and the 54th Engineers I would do it all over again. Anyone who was stationed there well almost anyone would say we had a ball.

My first husband and I were stationed in Wildflecken 1992-1994.. he was 2/11 ACR. I worked for child development services. It was a tight knit community then, we were sent to Schweinfurt for the remainder of his tour. I remember that huge hill! I have good memories from there.
