In 1970 that eagle was painted blue and the building housed an EM club. HHQ ENGCOMEUR was billeted there.

I was stationed in Gibbs from April 1986-July 1989 in 284th MP CO. I can't remember what unit was in that bldg when I first got there, but in 1987 HHC, 18th MP Brigade moved in there. It sucked having Bn down on the first floor of our (2nd) Bldg, and Brigade 2 bldg's down the street. Was like living in a glass house.

That building housed HHC, 18th MP Brigade, from 1987 till after I left in July 1989. I was stationed with 284th MP CO, in the 2nd building on the right as you came into Gibbs. 709th MP Bn was down on the first floor.

I lived in Gibbs Housing from 1972-1974 and used to climb the fence to take a short cut between the Housing Area and the Kaserne.

I was stationed here with the 69th Engineering Company (TOPO) from 1961 until May 1964. Didn't realize that it was no longer being used and was shut down. A long time ago but when I see these photos, it seems like only yesterday

I was at Gibbs with the 284th MPCO from 1992 until 1995 when we rolled the colors and deactivated the Unit...very sad day.

V Corps HQ was at Abrams but moved also.

18th MP Bde moved away when we closed Gibbs and the Battalion HQ was in Hanau...

Gosh; brings back memories. I lived at Gibbs Kaserne in 1975-76 while stationed in Frankfurt. I was signal corps and worked in the Abrams building basement. I was there when Baader Meinhoff left a bomb at the front door. Trippy to see these pics.
