Remarks: Just checking in to see if any old friends were on the roster for HHB (DSP) 5th Missile Bn, 6th ADA. I trained as 23N20 at Redstone Arsenal and served from 11/69 to 8/71 as a Sp-4 at the small airstrip in Hoppstadten, outside of Baumholder. We were just down the strasse from the 98th General Hospital base at Neubrucke. Does anybody remember "Happy Valley", the "12:31 Club" or the "Ordnance Bomb" painted on the flor of the old hanger building? How about the "Four Daughters", "Dindorfs" or "Hoehn's Gasthaus"? Do you remember riding on "Old Smokey" to Saarbrucken or Frankfurt? Did you drink the "Ratzenputz" as an initiation to DSP 5/6?

Remarks: Stationed at Battery'C' Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland as a Sentry Dog Handler from April 67 to Sep 68, better know as "Flip". That base is now a training center for the local police departments and is certainly not as impressive as it was in the late 60's. A lot of the guys names slip my mine as time moves on but I hope you all are well.....Good memories, Flip

Remarks: Just surfed in. When I was a boy many years ago (approx 1970's) in Scotch Plains New Jersey, I use to play in what I was told was an abandoned Nike missle base located in the near by hills. When was this operational and for how long? The parks and recreation of Union County have now placed a horse stable where the launch area was located. Thank for any info. P.S. I was a SP4 in the Military Police, 1978 to 1982.
