Hello to all my old friends from the 567th Engineer Company. Oh how the time flies. Sometimes it seems like it was yesterday and other times it feels like it was a lifetime ago. I was the 567thís first 55G20 (Nuclear Weapon Maintenance Specialist), arriving on May 1, 1975. The same day that the Vietnam War officially ended. When I got there they didnít know what to do with me because they had never had someone with my MOS so they gave me the old building at the back of the Kasern, the Special Weapons Tool Kit that had been kept in the Arms Room to keep you ADMers from taking all the cool tools, some wood to build shelves and toluene to clean the tools and told me to build a shop. I was an E-2 and needless to say it didnít last long before they assigned a Sgt. to supervise me. I spent the next 28 months until August 1977 maintaining the ADM Trainers. I had a part time job working evenings at the Kasernís movie theater selling tickets and occasionally running the projector. During my time in Hanau I couldnít wait to get back to the World but looking back I really had some memorable times with some of the best guys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My life has taken on some really MAJOR changes over the past 8 years which I will share with anyone who knew me and wants to e-mail me. I too look forward to the reunion and I will bet that if there is a prize for the person who has changed the most, I will win it.

Running movie projectors must have been something ADM was assigned to do wherever they were stationed...In Dexheim's 12th Engineer Battalion the movie projectionist was in ADM when I was there before they took off to Hanau in '74. I know my memory's good as he took me in the projection booth a couple of times and was teaching me the job before they left. It troubles me that I can't remember his name as we even used to jog together through the grape fields behind the post even before that became the mandatory pre-breakfast Engineer Mile (though it was three miles) of Col. Hewitt's in '75. But ADM was gone by then so you folks wouldn't remember that. Anyway, as I remember it there was three projectors and you'd start the one with a fresh reel when the movie showed a short series of dots on the screen when the reel would almost run out or end; that specific projector's reel would start up where the running one ended. Another example of the ADM soldier's uber-superior training. But when they left that job went to someone else in Headquarters Company as I got transferred to a line company and was busy doing 12B things for the rest of my enlistment. See how that works?

I was in 567th from 1984 til the doors closed in Feb 86. Was in 5th platoon; Stewart Gay was my team chief. Survived the move from Francois to the brand new "Patriot" Kaserne (understand it has a different name now) across the tracks north of Gross Auheim. Looking for contact with ADM'ers from that time. Currently doing video support--civilian now--for Fort Riley, KS.

Mike Tuck Thursday, April 17, 2003 03:10 PM
My first platoon sgt. in the 7th. was Edgar M. Brubaker - any relation ? I think that Gay may have been in my platoon just before I left in April '78.

Too all of you who were here LONG before I was; I am the son of Andy Juhl, who was stationed here right along side of all of you so long ago. I am here now, and have been so for a little under a year. Things have changed, and so have the names, there is no Francois Kaserene anymore, but I work out next to the Nuclear Power Plant if that helps. I love the web site you have put together, and that is one pic of my dad I have never seen before, holding a bottle of Crown or whatever it is. Thank you for putting it together. I am in the 130th En Bde, 565th En Bat, 38th En Co, same unit patch, different company pin, althought the E-tool/Bayonet pin is still in service here. Hope the reunion goes well!!!

Mike Tuck Thursday, April 17, 2003 03:18 PM
Good on ya Eric. It breaks my heart that Francious Kaserne in no longer; it was home for three years. Prosit !

Sgt. Robert (Buzz) Vincil Thursday, September 4, 2003 10:45 AM
Hey Wake I was in the 2nd Platoon until May 85. Rotated out just after the move. Remember we all got to choose new MOS's. So I went off for more training (AIT). I was the platoon clerk and SSG Calhoun's senior tech. SFC Dave Thomas and SFC Lynch were the platoon sergant's during this time, with Lt Stewart as the Plt. leader. Does anyone know what Thomas or Lynch are up to these days....Hey Wake if you want e-mail me at the aol address...Later

When I got there in April, 1977, with Harber and Mcardle we were shipped right out to the field where the 7th Platoon was in the middle of an inspection. What a great time that was! Looking forward to the reunion. Have great pictures of Francois, Hockenheim Raceway, etc. Will drink a few in memory of Mcardle (Mac), Purvis and all others no longer with us.

I don't who sent in the picture of the
"Awesome 7th Proud and Rowdy", but I have
the orginal picture, I think either Russell or Gene Henshaw has the sign, it sure did bring some memories seeing that picture, I bet LT Kincad would just love to go back up on the hill just to smell the fresh air. Drop me line if you get a chance, that goes for all of you. Big Gene

Peter Endy Wednesday, April 9, 2003 03:37 PM
That was me. But I think I got the picture from you, Gene, or maybe from Scott Sutherland, or maybe from Larry Dinnell, or maybe from...Well, several people have sent me that picture.

Mike Tuck Thursday, April 17, 2003 03:16 PM
What happened to the two german Coca-Cola ice boxes the 7th had ?

Gene Thursday, April 17, 2003 04:06 PM
That is a good question they were in Bldg. 1950 when I left. Sunday, December 21, 2003 08:21 PM
Gene: I'm not sure if you remember me or not but I recall celebrating Fasching with you and my wife in Langenselbold Probably the year of 1976. Steve

Anybody remember this guy?

Myron Brubaker Monday, April 14, 2003 10:13 AM
Is this Gary Bogart? I knew him at 275th in Ludwigsburg.

Rick Tuesday, April 15, 2003 07:41 AM
Yea it's him! He's still around,living in Ohio.

Peter Tuesday, April 15, 2003 08:03 AM
Get him signed up, Rick!

SSG Tom Wallis, USAR Ret. Monday, March 13, 2006 06:35 PM
Gary Bogard was my plt sgt when I first got to Herborn. We transitioned from fatigues to BDUs while I was there; I think he was an E-7 at the time.

Its great to see this webpage- brings back great memories. I was in First Platoon from May of 1977 to January 1982. Who can forget those great days and those great comrades? Remember those lousy bands at Frenchies? Or that schnell imbiss across the street run by that grumpy old German guy? Or the legendary Lamboy Annie? How about those runs to Pioneer Kaserne and back? Cheers to the First Platoon!

Ronald Hildebrant Wednesday, February 10, 2016 10:02 PM
I never expected to see a picture of the whole team in one spot. I spent my entire tour as team chief of Battalin Bravo, 1st Platoon. With fellow team chiefs SSG Jake Moore,SSG Ed Husbands, and SSG John Lynch. The best team in ADM History in this picture. Miss you guys.

I arrived in Hanau Feb 76 and left Sept 1978. Started out in 5th Platoon with SFC Shillard, then 7th with "The Boss" SFC Charlie Purvis and finished with "Big Bird" in the 3rd Herd with SFC Gene Ariel. This is great, Mike Tuck how are you doing we had your last party at my apartment just before you left. I am looking forward to this reunion and meeting up with some good friends. I retired in 1995 and moved into the Albany, NY area.

Mike Tuck Thursday, April 17, 2003 03:13 PM
I still have my half of the dollar we split before I left.

I was a member of the 275th En. Co. (ADM), in Ludwigsburg and was hoping to reestablish contact wtih other ADM'ers.

Timothy Duncan Sunday, March 28, 2004 03:09 PM

Seems to me I remember the name but cannot come up with a face. When where you there? I was with the 275th from Nov 77-Nov 79. Surprised that there are not more from the 275th. Drop me a line at

I was not in the 567th, but was in HHD 557. We were in Herborn-Seelbach. Shortly after I arrived there in April 1984 I roomed with Bobby Tedder. We used to keep our fridge full of soda by beating everyone else at Darts. I then went to the 66th @ Ft. Hood in 1984. I spent most of my time there playing softball. I rommed with Marty Isaac and would like to get in touch with him as well as a bunch of other great guys. I hope some of them hear about this and register. Looking forward to some kind of reunion.

Jim Britt Monday, May 12, 2003 01:46 PM
Hi. I knew Bobby Tedder when I was with the 567th in '78-'79. Back then, he met and started dating Marian (the fraulein). We always expected he'd marry her and settle over there. Not sure what ended up happening. Anyway, I sent in a picture of Bobby to be posted on the Photo Album. Bobby: If you're out there, I hope it all ended up great for you.

Charlie McGurk Wednesday, October 29, 2003 04:59 PM
You probably remember Roger Roberts, maybe?

Awesome 7th Proud and Rowdy, Third Herd
Home of the Big Bird. The hill in Freidburg the fresh aroma of spring air.
Grand Prix races for Forumla Ones. The best softball team in Germany. The friends you make that you hope will last a life time. Looking forward to seeing some of you again. I didn't say you wanted to see me again.

Arrived at the 567th in April '75. Assigned to SSG "Cookie Monster" Husbands A Team, 7th Plt. Later spent time in the 4th and 3rd Plts. Even a few weeks in HHC as a documents clerk in the basement. Back to the "world" in April '78. I've spent most of the last 25 years in construction.

Charlie McGurk Wednesday, October 29, 2003 04:57 PM
Mike, you remember Scraggs? What happened to him? The Germans haven't left, so he probably hasn't either.

eek! First guestbook entry.
I got to the 567th in May of 1976, and was assigned to the 7th platoon. Ray Flowers was my team chief at that time. Later that 7th platoon was busted up, and I was assigned to the 4th platoon with Ron Schutz as my team chief.
I have a lot of fond memories from the days in Hanau. Like J. Giles sings, good times last forever, and bad times fade away.

Bill Rettke Wednesday, April 2, 2003 06:59 PM
Yes Peter, I remember when you showed up. I had been there a year by then and we became friends right away. I remember some great memories of going to the river behind Pioneer and hanging out at the Bates apartment.

Bubba Harrell Sunday, November 23, 2003 02:25 PM
Hey Pete,
Just wanted to tell you thanks for all you have done to get this together.I remeber Ray Flowers and Schutz,but ican not remember you. Which picture are you in.If you can I would like to get in touch with Tommy Maines.If you can send me your phone number so I can talk to you about a few other things about the reunion. Thanks Gene (BUBBA) Harrell

SSG Tom Wallis, USAR Ret. Monday, March 13, 2006 06:37 PM
I remember Ray Flowers being a team chief at the 557th in Herborn around 1982-83.
