Oscar Dominguez says...24U was stationed 77 - 80, lots of memories
Lewis Pittman says...Yo! D Btry, I served as S4 Clerk from 1973 to june 74. Enjoyed every moment. I was HHB 2Bn, 1st ADA. I keep up with all the Btry's Ups and downs, keeping the Brass posted. Been looking for guys from those times, It's been hard but i'll keep trying. I got a little misty when I found out that our unit was no more! When I left in 74' We were living in tents because they were going to renovate the barracks. And they were also getting ready to start deploying the unit to the feild! Glad I was a "Skirtless WAC". Ha! "2-1" FOREVER!
Michael McLemore says...Don did you work as a MP?
Keith Campbell says...Just ran across this website poking around for pics of BK and Dichtelback. I was stationed Dichtelbach 1970-71. Lived in BK on the economy in a 4 story apt. with 2 other guys / familites from the site. I think one's name was Metz (he drove us into site most days) and the other was Al from Worcester, Mass. Al and I and wives were very good friends the whole time we were both there. Old fading memories. I was a Nike Crewman, the company clerk and finished off in late 71 as the classified doc custodian for site under Capt Kolb. Remember walking down the road to that small pub in Dischtelbach to drink and party with the locals girls, pulling CQ all night and sleeping on the shelf in the radio room and listening to music in the barracks playing Risk all night. Remember all the Rhine wine we drank, pulling guard duty in the launch area in those lonely, dark towers and Rudy from New York who introduced me to the Doors music first night I got there. Lots of fond memories of many friends, the great stereo systems we all had and the great time firing out in Crete and going to Athens Greece.
mad dog says...It was a rather interesting assignment and I will always remember my time there. I will never forget 1SGT Boynton, SFC Gilbert, SFC Lovin, 1LT Prevost, LT Yancey, Lt Miller, CWO Terry, CWO Guhl, SGT Biggers, SGT Kuhn, SSG May, Mace, Muniak, Steve Bates, Mulkey, Giles, Baker, Sorci, Melvin Mitchell, Davey, Tom Collins, Dusty Rhodes, Buddy Bud, Isham, Shadow, Dupree, SFC Agnew, Gene, Larry Gamble, Alexander and so many others that I can see in my mind's eye, but their names escape me. I have returned to Dichtelbach and the battery many times. I have walked up to see the Launch Area, Admin Area, and even the Radar Site. It was sad to see them in their abandoned state. However, I can still hear Mace screaming from Post 1 for the Sergeant of the Guard to get his relief out there as I wait to turn-in my badge and catch the meat wagon to BK. The OK Corral is waiting for the heads and Pepo's will be happening tonight.
No longer are there newbie Dichtelbacher Delta Dogs waiting their turn to drink a flaming glass of rocktopus topped with paprika prepared by Pepo, just old long in the tooth dawgs setting in our easy chairs thinking of our younger days. That is what makes this site so great, it takes us back to a time when we were younger and dumber. You just have to look at the pictures on the site to know what I say is true.
Ken Lively says...I was there may66 to apr68. Ran the PX with David Thibodeaux most of the time. We were both spec5s in the launching area assembly bldg. Ken Lively
