Hi Paul,

Apologize I missed answering your comment until now.

I would really appreciate if you could give me some hints where the Bad Nauheim housing area was located. To be honest, I didn't hear about that until today, when somebody else mentioned it here.

I am so sorry I can't take for you some pictures of 97th hospital, but that is still an active installation.

Thank you for sharing your memories about the time you spent in Germany.

I am pretty sure you already know the site, but - just in case - you should not miss http://www.usarmygermany.com. It's a great site !

Hello,

if you take Frankfurterstrasse north through Bad Nauheim until you are almost to the town of Neider-Morlen you will find the US Housing area. It is on the east side of Frankfurterstrasse directly opposite the lake. You'll have Grant Avenue, McNair Avenue, North Road, and a couple of other streets. There was a PX and a commisary there as well as a Class VI store and the housing area. We lived at Frankfurterstrasse 11, which is on the south edge of town about a mile or so south of the American housing area. We lived on the top floor of the apartment building which was owned by Otto and Hilda Abrie at the time. Many fond memories of that place.

Thank you for the directions ! Found it on the map.

For all of you missing Friedberg, I am planning to take photo tour both to Bad Nauheim and to Ray Barracks in the near future.

As a tribute to a long lasting friendship, City of Hanau organized an exhibition dedicated to American presence in Hessen, which is planned to go on tour as well to Ray Barracks in April, 09 (more details you can find here:

I was 5 through 10 yrs old. I think I left my heart in Germany until I gave my heart to Jesus. God let me keep some of my heart there my family have enjoyed looking at these pictures. So much is like I remembered with new paint. Thank you for sharing! My heart smiled!

Information needed...

Whoever can help with history of Camp Eschborn, please add your memories of the place as it used to be in the 70's through 90's.
