Remarks: I was stationed in Wackernheim from October 1974 until June 1976. I was assigned to HHB 2/1. I left the service as a Spec/5. I worked at the DSP in Tech Supply at first, then moved over to Production Control. It was a very memorable time, and I'm sorry to see that the base in Wackernheim has been torn down.

EmailAddress: jroellig@fuse.net
Remarks: I was assigned to HHB at Kornwestheim (Wilkins Barracks) from 1983 - 1985 (the end), only after this deactivation nothing went into storage, everything is gone, nothing was kept. That assignment was the best of my 14 years of active duty and nothing else ever came close. When I first arrived to the 3/71 I worked in the motor pool as a mechanic and made weekly trips out to B Battery (Grossachsenheim) for maintenance on equipment (and also visited a very popular swimming lake near by, Horheim Lake, I believe) , I was also there years later when the barracks B Battery (Grossachsenheim) were turned into storage of furniture for army housing. Bn commander at the time of my arrival was LTC Epworth the "DRAGON" he always talked about how he started in the army as a PVT and worked his way up to a LTC....... CSM Michael J. Streeter the the SM at the end, he had spent most of his career in the 3/71. Webmaster's Note:James served in Germany with HHB 3rd Battalion 71st Air Defense Artillery at Kornwestheim (Wilkins Barracks) from 1983 - 1985 (the end), working in the Motor Pool with an MOS of 62B, but worked as TAMMS Clerk with rank of SP4 from 4/83 to 7/85.
