Thanks for the reply. I recognize the unit patch. I remember it being an Infantry patch. I was in Fiori Kasern with the 1/80th FA. The name changed to 3/12 FA in 1988. I learned that the units left in 1992. If you check out Google maps you will see that Fiori is an apartment complex now. I can still recognize it, though.

Dagger X-ray,
Thanks for the link, but I'm ahead of you. I found the link right after my first post and printed the maps. If you all remember the main Strasse where the locals went was Wurzburger Strasse. There were a lot of bars and restaurants and shops. The road led to the mall. It was a very charming area. It would have been nice to be there under different circumstances, but it was fun. Does anyone remember any of the clubs or bars on Wurzburger Strasse?

Hey Dewey:

Well, is good to see someone from old A-berg. We were told before we cameback from the sand, that our unit was being deactivated there. But it was going to be active in Ft. Benning.

Yes, I noticed that Graves kasern is completely empty I can tell some details of it. If you go back to the maps one of our brothers Dagger X-Ray posted here, under my kasern, my bldg 311 were Bco 1/7 used to reside.

I wonder if they took down the bail of cotton that sat in a display, hence "Cottonbailers".

So many good memories. THx for writting, God Bless.

I was there, 87-89 on fiori 557th mt co. Hung out at Logos, and played in a metal band called Rellik, that played a little club on graves (i think) and the 89 German-American Volksfest. I left in 89 to Ft. Bragg, and then ran into members of my old unit over in Saudi, such an odd thing to happen. I still have a mental map of all the bars up and down Wurzburger Strasse.

Oh, and thanks for posting that Sachsenhausen video. I partied up there at the Irish Pub and the 4th floor a number of times. Once a buddy of mine and I got so drunk that we passed out on the train and ended up in Ingolstadt by mistake. Good times.

That happened to me on my first week in Head Start on a Thursday night. Got too drunk to find the post. Lots of good memories from Sachs.

Bars in A'burg

I spent many a night in Logos. That was a great metal bar. I was in A'burg all of 1987 and half of 1988. I went to the Monsters of Rock concert in Nuremberg to see Ratt and Metallica in 1987. What was the other nightclub across the street? Joanne's, or something like that. It was kind of a pop club. I remember the black club all of the brothers would go to. Was the name Abilene's? I think so. It was really ghetto. The German girls seemed to like it though.

That was Gatsby's. Dance place. I went to Monsters of Rock in 88 (schwienfurt) and to Metallica/Queensryche in k-town also 88. Don't really remember the other place, though. We used to hang a right at Hellburgers and go up the street to the Irish Pub, too. Open til 4 in the morning. There was a club outside of town in one of outlying places called "The Limit" that was open until 7am. Wow did I drink a lot back then.

Thank you for jogging my memory. The name of that joint was Gatsby's. You nailed it. Thanks! When I got to Germany I was 17 years old so I was in Heaven. That was where I kinda went wild. One night I actually passed out in LOGOS. Hellburgers was a frequent late night spot. We would get our Heylands beer from there. Our fridge stayed stocked with the stuff. I remember the Irish pub also. What I remember about it was the natural wood theme and use of natural lighting (candles). It was a very comforting environment. I also hung out at the NCO club. The slot machines were addicting and the women were very friendly after their husbands went out to the field. Good times!

Sweet! Well, who would have thought that someone is having good memories of my home town :wink: ! Especially about the Triangle, the Irish Pub,Mom's, etc. Several of you might know me: worked at Mom's (as a second job when I was very young), then at Liberty's and lastly at Logo's but not at Gatsby's. I lived right there with all the action :) - there were some good times, but also some bad. Currently I live in Florida and am happily married and my son is almost 22 years old. I do think back a lot of what I have learned and experienced (the good, the bad and the ugly). I met maybe thouands of people (guys and gals) during those years in the Aschaffenburg's Triangle but I end it in the early 90s and came to the US in 95 (no, not because of a guy - I met my hubby later in OKC) to be with Family.
Hope you all are doing fine, because I am. :P
PROST und noch ein Weizen Bier :wink: FYI - Heyland's Bier Brewery was bought out couple of years ago. Yep, the drinking was something else indeed :lol: but GREAT TIMES!

Looking for anyone stationed at Graves Kaserne with the 1st Bn/7th Inf during 1965 and 1966. Would love to see picture of Graves Kaserne anytime after 1965-1966. Left there and went to Vietnam 1966 - 1967.
