An dieser Stelle möchte ich wieder jemanden aus dem berühmten 94. Pionier Battalion vorstellen.

Herr Bill Wesley war mit dem 94th Combat Engineer Battalion von August 1970 bis Januar 1972 in den Nellingen Barracks stationiert.

Er genoss es sehr unsere deutsche Kultur, zu mindest ein wenig, zu erleben. Natürlich standen Ausflüge nach Nellingen-Esslingen-Stuttgart und in Teilen Deutschlands auf dem Programm. Bill und seine Kameraden hatten ein bevorzugtes Gasthaus in Nellingen. Bevor er nach Nellingen kam, war er schon als Kind eines Amerikanischen Soldaten in Deutschland und lebte mit seiner Familie unter anderem in Pirmasens, Mannheim und Ludwigsburg. Alles zusammen war Bill Wesley 12 Jahre in Germany.

Bill ist sehr stolz darauf in Deutschland gewesen zu sein und hat nette, tolle Menschen kennen gelernt.

 

Heutzutage lebt Bill in Syracuse im US-Bundesstaat New York.

Viele Grüße an dich von – Billy - Oktober 2010

Original Comment of Bill Wesley:

 

Hello Billy,

 

Greetings from Syracuse, NY, USA! Yes, I was stationed at Nellingen Barracks from August 1970 to January 1972, and served with the 94th Combat Engineer Battalion, Headquarters Company. Although my stay at the Kaserne was rather brief I have many great memories of Nellingen, Esslingen, Stuttgart, & Deutschland as a whole.

I am also a military brat, my father was in the Army and together as a family were also stationed at Pirmasens, Mannheim, & Ludwigsburg. Altogether my time in Germany totalled twelve years. As far as your request for photos, I only have a few pictures remaining of my tour of duty there as everything I photographed was put on slides and were lost or misplacement many years ago.  The pictures I've included here, you are more than welcome to use on your website, which by the way is a great tribute to your wonderful town, its people, the base, the military who served there, and of course yourself!

I Wish you all the best and will be checking in on your web site for updates. I hope the following lines translate properly as I have forgotten what little Deutsche I learned.

Tschuess!

 

Bill Wesley

Auf Wiedersehen und beste Wünsche mein neuer Freund. April 2010
