Comment: This is great to see a sight on Hahn AB. I was stationed there as a firefighter from 2/90-2/93 and loved every minute of it. I would probably still be there if the base had not closed. I was back there in March of 2000 and it's not the same but still looks good. Alot better shape than Bitburg AB is in. I also was the last firefighter to close down Wuscheim Air Station in August of 1992.
