That last picture is of the barracks I lived in for three years, 3/67 ADA. So sad to see it run down. It is still a fond memory and will be for the rest of my life.

The second to last picture was my barracks and I lived there for 3 years while in 4/3ADA. Left there in 1996 many of my happiest memories were there as a young man. Sorry too see it end up like that. I hope we return there some day and put new life into it.

I was in A-17 SIG BN from 1997-1998. I pulled all night duty in the little stone building by the iron gate that was a second entrance prior to Al Qaeda attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998. After that, that only entrance was the one that later had a covering and incoming multiple lanes. No Germans just American soldiers with no rounds except for the NCO (me). I still remember one LT screaming at me for the long back up of vehicles at lunch when I only had two soldiers with me at the time. Bin Laden really ruined my last five months in Germany with the guard duty when we had no guards before.

I was there in '59-'60 when it was still called Flak Kaserne.

A great time in my life as a 19yr old.
I going on a river cruise that stop's in Kitzingen on 5-16-2015 and for me,that will be a great time too.
55 year's have passed and I still remember most of my 18 month's there.
I wish the Hillbilly Bar was still open so I could have a cold flip-top beer in rememberance of my many night's spent there.The Mark was 4-19 per dollar and for a 5 dollar bill you would get 21 Mark's. After eating,we could drink beer in the mess hall for 1 hour at a cost of 8 cent's per can. The EM Club charged 10 cent's for bottle's,which we preferred.
I hope to find a worthy souvenir to place next to my Wurzberger 0.5L mug and Kitzinger Weissbier glass.
That would be a great closing chapter for this old Soldier.

I was not a Soldier as You were Sir, but came to Germany in 1969 with my Aunt, and have seen how things have changed so sad, go out and eat a schitzel, or buy a German music cd With beer hall music as souvenir,

I was stationed there back in 91-93. Great memories. Still looking for a good friend of mine by the name of Matthew G. Burgess. He married a local and I think stayed out there after his enlistment.

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.
