FAHS students usually had two lives, the one at school, and the one at their home community.  Many spent time riding the bus to and from school every day.  There were five and seven day Dormies.  Some lived close enough to walk to school.

Bad Nauheim

click images to enlarge

Hello Bruce 70,
I am Eddie Clark in Eugene, Oregon. I too was an ARMY brat 1969 ( age 13) in Bad Nauheim 1969.
There was the elementary school in Bad Nauheim that I attended from Nov. 1968 to spring 1969 and attended Frankfurt American Jr. High fall 1969. I would have attended FAHS and graduated class of 1974. I have attached some photos that somehow survived all this time of the housing in Bad Nauheim and three girl friends, one of which did attend FAHS: Carol Marx. I knew Dutch Meeker but not very well as he was about 4 years older than I, but I seen him play guitar with Henry Frogge` on drums whom also lived in Bad Nauheim.
I have been trying to make contact with anyone, but no luck so far. I hope you receive this message and find the photos acceptable to post. Please keep in touch!
Eddie Clark

Carol Marx, ?, ?

I have a page for the housing areas in Bad Nauheim and Friedberg if interested http://www.facebook.com/groups/443988808956673/   - George Paul

Bad Nauheim - Anthony Brown(71): BTW: My dad was stationed at Friedberg (where Elvis served his tour of duty), and we lived at the housing area in Bad Nauheim, a couple miles away (south of Butzbach and Giessen, we rode the same school bus as those residents).
 

 

About 50 kilometers (Aschaffenburg to FAHS)

How long did it take to get to school? About an hour and a half, including the 20 mins. it took to get from our house to the military bus stop. 

Did you have a Movie Theater, Roller Rink, Bowling Alley, PX, Commissary, etc.? All of the above. 

Who do you remember rode the same bus? Linda & Jim Moore, Pat Norwood, Peggy Cone, JoAnn Shemwell & her brother, Charlie Wahle, Tom Tinker

Was there a late bus, so you could take part in extra curricular activities at the school? Yes, but it left around 4:30pm, so when I was in the musical, my (step)mom had to pick me up every night at 10:30pm.

Giessen Letter Jackets - does any one know who's in the photo, who took it and when? email Bruce70

I could be wrong, but I think that is Morris Ostroff (69) standing 2nd from the left.  He actually was my Home Ec cooking partner (yep, definitely the cutest and I think the only guy in the class!) our senior year!  I don't know where he was from, and I can't get the yearbook to open to compare pictures.  Maybe someone else can verify... Diane (Moore) Harlow

From Steve Denmark's Giessen AYA page:

"Without question, the most defining event of 1966 was the plan to order our own letter jackets. This was a total departure from the accepted norm, a revolution of sorts. Only the major high schools had these coats. This was an outlaw move. Giessen, an hour and half on the autobahn north of Frankfurt, precluded any real possibility from our participation in FHS events due to time, distance and travel. Having our own letter jackets gave us an identity and a kind of pride that had never existed before.

We obtained a catalogue by mail from Wilson Sporting Goods (the address we found at the overseas order desk at the PX). The style of jacket that we wanted was  identical in color and design to our sports rivals, Frankfurt. "Grudging admiration" is a term that comes to mind.

The price of the jacket was  determined by the quantity ordered. Only those individuals who had played as a member of a school or intramural team were eligible to wear a jacket. As I recall, we needed checks from 36 students to meet the minimum."

I found this photo recently and recognized my brother. We lived in Giessen during that time period and although I was five years younger than these people, I recognized Morris Ostroff. My brother Donald (Don) Wells is at the far right (wearing Beatle boots:) He did not have the photo in front of him but remembered the following. The people in the photo and I can't tell you who is who are: Danny and Bill Johnson (brothers), Steve Denmark, Joe Gabriel, Dave Mulder and possibly Toffer Godfry. This photo was taken outside the AYA which was located near the commissary. On Saturdays the guys would bag groceries and hang out at the AYA shooting pool. Sgt Hernandez was in charge of the AYA (I remember him too) and asked them to step outside for a photo. It is my understanding that he took the photo. I'll ask my sister if she remembers anyone as she is a couple of years older than me. I hope this sparks some memories. -- Sonya (Wells) Miller From: Sonya Miller

Don said the photo was probably taken in '68.
My brother called me back. He and his wife (also in Giessen at that time) pulled up the photo. They said Tofer Godfrey (not sure of any spelling here) is to the left of Morris Ostroff. Kim Mingus is to the left of my brother (who is at the far right) Sam Burke, wearing a kind of sheepskin jacket is behind her to the left. He said also John Bray is in the photo. He remembers the faces but couldn't put name with the faces. He said he thought this was the occasion when they all got their letter jackets. From: notify@yahoogroups.com on behalf of Bluehaseiler

Bruce: Here are the names I am sure of. Standing L to R is Topher Godfrey, Morris Ostroff, 4th is Danny Johnson 7th is Bill Johnson 8th is Reiner Eaton and Don Wells in front of him. Kneeling is L to R is Mike Hess, Pete Kilgore and John Kile. The only girl I recognize is Kim Mingus, she is in the forefront. Steve Denmark is not in this photo. I playd on the first 2 Giessen Giants teams in 65 and 66. This photo is circa fall 67 or spring 68. No laterm than spring 68 as many of thos you see in the photo were class of 68. I was class of 67. If I can help anymore with photo's please email me , I will try to look the kids up, I have a couple of yearbooks (65 & 67) and will try and match names to faces I do not remember. Most I do some I don't. Thanks Henry

 Members of the FHS golf team used it a lot to go to Hanau after school to practice in the fall of 67. I believe it was the first golf team for FHS but not sure. Paul and I also drove it on Nurburgring (sp) the famous German race track during a snow storm. We were discovered and told to leave because of the icy conditions. You can see my stairwell in the background, Edwards housing. I lived in the apartment on the first floor, jus to the right of the door on the left.

"I lived in Frankfurt on Betts Kaserne. That is where the AYA Roller Rink was and the NCO Club. There was a deli, a gym, the test site for the international drivers' licenses, etc. We had about 4 buildings for NCO family housing, about 3 for officer's families, 1 for single officers, 1 for WACs, and 2 barracks on the compound. We rode the school bus, had the activities bus and could even catch the strauss or the taxi if we missed the busses. Don lived in one of the barracks and we met at the skating rink when I was working there. He ended up moonlighting there also. I can't remember my address there (I know you had a directory copied some where) but we were next to a traffic circle with Pop's and Freddie's Pizza. The 97th General Hospital was across the street. We were also next to Atterbury Kaserne housing." - Laura 71

From: Michael Calloway
Sent: Thursday, April 24, 2008 4:40 PM
Subject: Hanau, Crosstown Traffic and the Round House

Hey Bruce, Mike and castaways from FHS Island,

Hanau was awesome although a bit sad because of all the barbed wire fences surrounding all the US leased properties ... including Pioneer, Sportfield and both Argonner housing areas.. to include guard posts at entrances to them and an occasional patrol dog.   Funny(not)  how when the wall came down our fences went up ... and even sadder by this fall all US Military will be out of Hanau, like many other places around Europe.  Gelnhausen has already been turned over ...all the fences are down and the military housing many of called home are now rental units and the single family type Officers qtrs. have been sold.  Bob Schneider and I visited a friend of his who bought on of the single family townhouse type units out near Gelnhausen. Bob's Mom lives in Hailer the train stop before Gelnhausen from FFm/Hanau.  The weather was the usual ...overcast, misty rain, a few snow flurries ... But we did have one nice Sunday and took in the Barbarosa Fest in Gelnhausen .... and we visited numerous Gasthauses for bier, schnitzel, rumpsteak, sauerbraten, rot kohl, sauerkraut, and brats of of kinds... not sure exactly how much we ate but I brought back an extra 10 lbs after 10 days . LOL.   Mike ...

  The Round House is still alive an kicking under the same family management ... and they now have 4 locations in the area.  The manager of "our" pizza and bier pit stop was that snot nosed 8/9 year old that was always there pestering the crap out of everyone during our time there .  AND THE PIZZA ... it is the same perfectly crispy crust around the edges.  Also I am sure you shopped at the music shop in Hanau .which we called the Hesta Shop because of the speaker cabinets they sold ... I had a 2X15 Base cab and Passerelli's had PA speakers and I think also a 4X12  ... The shop is now owned, for many years, by Leslie Link, fabulous guitarist for the Orange Peel ...  OP still gets together every year for a reunion concert in the Hanau Stadt Halle ... Curt Cress the drummer is a very well known producer and of course is no slacker on drums having played with Freddie Mercury, Scorpions(for a short while) and has numerous albums with German Jazz great Klaus Doldinger and Passport and there is a clip on UTube of Curt and Steve Gadd swapping licks ... Steve was a member of the U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors in the late 60's,.

OK ENUF FOR NOW .... I do have some more photos of Crosstown Traffic and that I need to scan and also have a bunch of concert tickets and posters that you may want to put on your awesome link Bruce . Thanks ever so much for your time to put that together for us all!!!!!

YIPIKIYA,
Mike

Darmstadt - Lincoln Village, Santa Barbara
   I lived in Darmstadt Germany Facebook Page
 
"There were actually three "Siedlungs" plus two buildings out at "The Stars and Stripes" plant in Griesheim, just west of town, near the Autobahn. The three villages were Jefferson Siedlung, which was where the Cambrai Fritsch Kaserne was (PX, Commissary, Dispensary, Chapel, these two outside the fence, American Express, one of the theaters, and the Audio club, among other things), Lincoln Siedlung, which was where the Elementary/Junior High School, the EES gas station, the AYA, and the little league ball field were, and the Santa Barbara Siedlung (officers housing). The other two buildings were an 18 family apartment building (later converted to a 21 family apartment building) and a BOQ, both just on the other side of the fence, which surrounded the S+S plant.

Other military facilities in Darmstadt included; Kelley Barracks, Ernst Ludwig Kaserne, Nathan Hale Depot, and the 6910/11th Air Force Security Group, near the Medevac airfield in Griesheim. The medevac airfield was a Stuka dive bomber base during WWII.

When I was real little we lived in Jefferson Siedlung. Then, we moved to Lincoln Siedlung, before moving out to the apartment building at the S+S plant. At first, most of the families who lived there were the families of S+S employees. In 1963, all civilians who had lived in government housing for more than 5 years, were told to move onto the economy, and so we moved to Wixhausen, just north of town on the B-3 (the "back road" to Frankfurt). Later, after I graduated, my mom, dad and sister moved to Griesheim to be closer to S+S.

Attached are three images from Cambrai Fritsch Kasene, which were taken by Buddy Lerch, I think. Cambrai Fritsch, when it belonged to the German army, had a lot of horse stables. After WWII, some of the stables were converted to business and recreational spaces, but the tie-down rings were still in place on the outside of the buildings. The Amex bank was there, as were the washerette and bowling alley. The movie theater was just across the street from those three. And that's where the three photos were taken.

Friedberg - McArthur


from Charles Wolf?

...the housing area in Friedberg behind Ray Barracks Kaserne...was called MacArthur Housing. The kids there also went to FAJHS and FAHS as I am one of them. The Elementary kids went to Bad NauheimElementary as was my sister being there. Here is a pic of the Housing area and the building I lived in. My brother has pics also. His name is Jeff and you can find him on  FAHS BRATS "

 
 

I have a page for the housing areas in Bad Nauheim and Friedberg if interested http://www.facebook.com/groups/443988808956673/   - George Paul
