Thanks to whoever posted these photos. My unit had a fixed station relay site there in the 70-72 time period. Looks totally different of course, we didn't have a large concrete tower. Great memories.

I worked at the Radio relay sites for Darmstadt, Hanau, Melibokus, Breitsol, and Giessen as a contractor between 02-05. We shut down Giessen & Breitsol (Spessart) in 04 and Melibokus ~ 05 if I recall correctly as the radio links were replaced by fiber optics.

Wow, Melibokus in all it's glory back in the day was a great assignment. Stationed from May 86 to Oct 88 was the best time of my life in the Army. We had our own Chief, Gym, Rec center with pool table & ping-pong. In town Bensheim was a great Pub called "Bierkeller" I think where I learned to speak German. Good times!

I was stationed with 11AD Co. C but on occassion, worked up on Melibokus from 87-89. Always loved the drive up the mountain and down, especially in the winter. Many fond memories of this place.

asicdlGreat pictures of Melibokus! I was stationed there in 1954-55. I considered it to have been one of the greatest and rewarding experiences of my life. If any of you who were stationed there can find other websites regarding Melibokus, you can ride with a mountain biker down a trail on the mountain. Of course, the trail was not there in 54 and 55. My memories of too vast to comment further in this blog. Great experience? — Donald N.

Was stationed on site from 85 - 88. Team chief then asset site commander. Sure had some good times there. DOD shows for the teams at site. Used to take our family dog to site so he could run. I was in C 11 signal. Melibokus sure has changed but not in my mind. Great assignment. Sgt. W

My dad was there from 1970 until 72 or 74. He is looking for pics of the old towers before they were replaced with concrete. Anyone able to assist?

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.
