15th Transportation Company

15. Transport Kompanie

 

Endlich kann ich in meiner Webseite auch einmal Bilder zeigen von der 15. Transport Kompanie ( LKW ). Sie stammen vom Soldaten Robert Beitz. Er diente hier in den Nellingen Barracks von Oktober 1983 bis Juni 1985 im 3. Platoon als LKW Fahrer. Einige Fotos stammen vom sogenannten Motorpool Gebiet, dort waren große LKW Reparaturhallen mit tiefen Arbeitsgruben,  um die entsprechenden Arbeiten zu verrichten. Diese Hallen, wie ich mich selbst noch erinnern kann, wurden mit Heißluftgebläsen im Winter beheizt, sobald jemand ein Schiebetor öffnete war es sofort saukalt da drinnen.

Robert lebt heute in Malvern, Pennsylvania, ist verheiratet und hat zwei Jungen ( 10 und 7 Jahre )

 

Danke für die Fotos Bob, viele Grüße aus Nellingen wünscht Billy ( Jan. 2008 )

Original Comment of PFC Robert Beitz:


Hi Billy,

I was stationed at Nellingen Barracks from October 1983 to June 1985. I was in the 15 th Trans. Co. 3rd Platoon, 3rd squad driving M915s. My squad Leaders were SGT.

Stark and SSG Underwood. My Platoon SGT was SFC Rainey. It,s funny that you should email me because just last Week I came across your Website when I was searching for Information on Nellingen Barracks. I am bringing my Family to Germany to visit some old Friends that live in Fellbach. While we are there, I wanted to take my two Boys to see where I was stationed. But, I was saddened to see that the Barracks no longer exists. I really enjoyed my Time in Germany. I spent countless hours down at the Longhorn Country & Western Club as well as the many Disco,s in Stuttgart. I left Germany in 1985 but was back for visits in 1987 and again in 1992. Today I live and work in Pennsylvania for a German Company named Siemens.

Regards Robert Beitz
