His father was in the military. I was stationed in Mainz in the early 1980's at Lee Barracks. I served as the Signal Officer in the 2/87 Infantry (Mechanized). Part of the 1st Brigade, 8th Infantry Division.

Mainz was a nice, little German city on the Rhine. Famous for being in the general location of where General George S. Patton pissed in the Rhine when the 3rd Army reached that point in WWII.

Yep, thats correct Billy was born in Mainz Germany. I was there for 9 yrs and loved every minute of it. We left in 1990 and moved back to Lakeland. Can't send him back he now belongs to the Huskies. I told the Coach once he was signed that there was no returns. ;-)

Ah, beautiful Baumholder (a German-run training area). We were once camped out in the field in a giant tent city at Baumholder. A huge storm came through and only one tent (GP Medium - sleeps about 20-25 people) was left standing (luckily the one I was in). The mess tent (a GP Large - a big tent) was ripped completely in half. Stuff was blown everywhere.

You could often witness 4 seasons in a single day in Baumholder.

Baumholder still has 2nd Brigade, First Armored Division but we don't train here. And yes, the weather here is nuts. I cant complain this winter though. A bit wet but very very mild. Today we had a giant snow storm in the morning where cars cuoldnt get around and alot of snow on road and at 1700 there was some sun....by 1800 it was raining. God its awsome. :-p

hahah 4 seasons? Totally!!!!

Ain't that the truth what a bad mix of weather they have but all in all it still was a pretty neat place to train. It was one of Hitler last post to fall to the allied forces.

The building across the street from my barracks has a swastika pattern built into the brick structure. I'd love to go back in time and see these when these were first built.

I think you tell me this story everytime we put up the tents because your tent always made it thru the storm. You wanna take the time to do it right and all I want to do is consume the local beverage of choice. I keep telling Ranger that if he drinks more, the elements don't matter. 04-rock
