Spent 16 months at Ft. Hood in the 66th before the 567th. After Ft. Hood, I arrived at the 567th in May 1978, and stayed until Aug 1979.

Worked for Sgt. Marshall for a while, and then the best in the world, Sgt. Purvis. Had some great times. I remember Larry Dinell, Rick Christianson, Ronnie Gibson, Bruce Batty, and a lot of others. Actually, I went through basic with Rick C. at Ft. Leonardwood in the fall of '76.

Anyway, best regards to all. Reunion in Vegas sounds good.

I'm following the trend as well.
I sent in my deposit and a donation a couple of weeks ago.
Thanks to Peter for all the great work.

I know the old 317th ADM Platoon from Camp Eschborn became the 7th Plt. of the 567th.; but where did all of the other platoons come from and what were their old units ?
When I arrived in April '75 the "old timers" were still wearing their old unit pocket patches; those, and the O.D. tee shirts were done away with...

Prosit !

I was in the 567th from 83 till the end. Served as PLT LDR of 2nd Plt and CO OPs Officer.

Rick Baker Thursday, May 1, 2003 08:45 PM
Was that the same 2nd plt.(Dutch Treat) that seemed to disappear whenever we had an inspection? Man, you guys had it made! I would have loved to have been in the 2nd,but I was stuck in the 6th supporting the 8TH ID.

I was in Hanau from May 76 to Dec.78.It's good to see lots of names that I remember, and a few I don't. I can't remember the name of TOP, but I remember him always marching through the mud puddle at morning formation instead of around it.Those were some wild times back then. I have lots of pics if I can ever get the scanner to work again.I hope we can all get together in Los Vegas.Keep pluging Pete. Later,Scott

I believe his name was 1SG Knoles and he became 5th Corp CSM.

I was RA from 21Sep74 to 19Sep77. I trained as a combat engineer at Ft. Leonard Wood and was invited to Ft. Belvoir for ADM training. I shipped to FRG at the end of Feb. 1975.

My Army regular duty career was with the 7th Platoon of the 567th Engineer Co., in Hanau, FRG., at good ol' Francois Kaserne, right across Lamboy Strasse and across from the famous "Oliver's". Geez, all those Binders!

My Army service and the curious way of life in and around Francois Kaserne has helped make me the man I am. Go figure.

Still, I've always thought that "everything works out in the end."

Kathy and I have been married for 17 great years, we have a wonderful (mostly) seven-year-old boy named Eric, a ridicalus Golden Retriever named Lovely Rita (I still like the Beatles), a hamster and gecko.

We live in a log home west of Kansas City, MO., and, since it's one of the highest points in the county, we have tactical advantage.

I joke about my Cold War duty helping to keep the "Vicious Red Horde" out of Normandy. We succeeded, but sometimes I wonder if the effort is appreciated.

Given recent events, I am proud to have served my country and wish the best for everyone serving now.

Chuckles, "Kansas City Star that what I are"
Sure was great to read your note. I was looking through some old stuff the other day and found the post card you sent me from the Swiss Alps back in June 1977. Glad to hear life is treating you good. I"m sure that there is a book with the names of the service men and women who served during the "Cold War" and when it comes time we will get our due.
Take care and keep in touch.
Mean Gene,

Dave White message 88 Monday, February 23, 2004 06:28 PM
Chuck, I'm not sure but I think we were in the same platoon. If I'm right, aren't you part Asian decent, about 6'1" and at the time your family lived on a ranch in Monatana or something like that. The reason I remember you (I think) is you came into a room where myself and some other guys whose names I don't remember were playing spades, drinking and smoking hash. (you didn't smoke) but I say all this because you ended up in a wrestling match on a bet with a guy named "Hammer" who I think was from New York. You won :) My name is Dave White.

Dean Sunday, March 21, 2004 12:01 PM
Chuck I believe that Lt. Royce Kincaid was the Blond headed guy from west point. If I'm right I saw him in 1980 at Ft. Lenardwood while I was in the reserves and he said his 6 years was up and he was going to get out. Maybe we were a little hard on him.

some more ADM units
8th at Dexheim
547th in Darmstadt
529th in Darmstadt
9th in A'burg
54th in Wildflecken
317th in Frankfurt
But the original ADM company was the 529th ADM co (provisional) which became the 567th ADM co. With Capt Bob Keenan(sic) as the Commander. There's a lot of ADM folks out there and I wish I could remember more of them but age is catching up to me.

Anyone know of any other ADM units other than the following?
66th-Ft. Hood
62nd-Italy
275th-Ludwigsburg
567th-Hanau
24th USAFAD- Landsberg am Lech
I know that way before my time that most engineer battalions had ADM trained people (317th,168th).
Anybody know anything more?

Charlie McGurk Wednesday, October 29, 2003 04:53 PM
Hey Rick, I started at Fort Belvoir with SSG Badger, and Mark Hicks, and a few others back in 1975, ended in 32nd USAFAD in Neinburg in 1986 with quite a few old names like Moffit, Cote,, Dugan, and others!

Richard,

You are right. There where other units prior to combining them into general support companies. I was in the 121st Engr Co. then HQ 4th Missle Command in Camp Page Korea from 1972-1974, 15th Engr Bn in the 9th Div Fort Lewis from 1975-1977. Korea was the best keep secret the Army had. Most of the people in Korea where drafted but a few stayed in. Some I remember are Jack Miller, John Lynch and Tom Heyl. They may have spent time in the 66th. People from the 15th Engr Bn where Robert Brown, Robert Nunn, Donald Lenard, Peter Colbath, Jose Mendez. Some 275th personnel where Raymond Jeffus, Harry Dugan, Michael Corbett, Donald Ruyon,Theodore Hall, Thomas Leek, Robert Ruff. Platoon's working more or less attached to a unit was really much better then when they formed companies of 12E. No one messed with us and all the support was given to us without question. We never had the ash and trash details that where required of us when formed into companies.

Mike Brubaker Wednesday, March 16, 2011 12:03 AM
I was with the 23 engineer battalion in 1971 and 1972. I was in the ADM platoon. We were in the hessen homberg kaserne in Hanau.

My brother Ed and I were in the Third platoon. (I thought Gene Ariel was in the third at that time?)Arrived April 75 and rotated stateside in July 77. Ended up as a trainer at the ADM school until discharge Nov 78. I really think the reunion is a great idea! Kudos to Peter Endy for all of his work.

Eugene D. Arial Thursday, April 17, 2003 07:55 AM
Hi Jeff,

I arrived in Hanau in Dec. 1976 and was assigned to the 7th platoon on James Samples team. When the awesome seventh was split I went to the 6th and eventually ended up with Sgt Tessener until I left for home in March of 1979. I find it amazing how the memories keep coming back after all these years. The faces I can remember but alot of the names escape me. I also have a copy of the picture of the 7th platoon at Freidberg. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. I lost contact with Ronnie Gibson a couple of years ago. If anybody knows how to contact him please let me know.

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.

I remember another guy working the projectors but I don't remember his name but I think he went to helicopter school.

John L. Morgan Thursday, September 14, 2006 02:33 PM
Bill, just found this site and guess who I am? I'm that Sgt that was assigned to watch over you. Then SSG Morgan, now just old John Morgan. Those were sme great times what is the name of the other 55G that came in later? You guys were the the best team ever, thanks for the memories. e-mail me ay hjmorgan2@earthlink.net. Later guy.

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

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
