Comment: Stumbled on the web site and it blew me away. Chris Edmonds picture of the gate coming from the housing area really got me...that was my room in '69 for a few months. I spent my time there (over two years)[E-3 thru E-5] in the motor pool doing office work. When I arrived at Bitburg, I was nineteen and fresh from a small Illinois town. I've always considered Bitburg and Germany as the place I 'grew up'. I have a lot of fond memories of the place...but were those some cold winters or what?

Comment: Hi there,

Great site, I grew up in Bitburg. My mother is German, and we lived there until the time that I was 12. I was wondering if anyone remembered a guy by the name of John McWilliams. He was stationed there, and was in the Air Force. I am not sure of the dates, but it was somewhere around the early 60's. Any info. would be great or if anyone would like to contact me "just because" that would be fine too. :)
Thanks, Donna

While there, I was not aware of the history of the base, and would now like to know the exact locations of the missile sites. Has anyone got a map showing these sites in relation to the air base? The local museum had copies of the book Bitburg Air Base - is there an english version available, if so where can i buy a copy. Thanks again.

Comment: Iwas stationed at Bitburg AFB for 1 year. I never fit in and went though severe cultural shock when I came back to the states. I fit right in with the German culture and everything but not the Air Force. I would love to hear from anyone who knows me or anyone who just wants to converse.

Comment: Really enjoy your site. I was stationed at Bitburg 65-69. Attached to 2139th Comm Sqd. Our room was directly over the MARS station. Remember the ALERTS, beer, snow and the trips down town and to Trier. Had fun pulling maint. on base PA.. Playing "ships of Fools". Many nites in CAB of control tower, missile sites, and in the base underground command center.. ugh.
