A Little History of The Constabulary and Photo of Uniform.

This is very good information about the U.S. Constabulary and I would like to share it with all of you.
This information came form a magazine that was sent to me by Neil Aikin of CA.  Neil was the Adjutant of Outpost 8 of the U.S Constabulary Association of 1999.

Web Master
Irene Moore
.

In the early years of the cold war, the little known U.S. Zone Constabulary formed the first line of defense against an ever threatening Stalinist Soviet Union.  This July that unique unit celebrates the 50th anniversary of activation.

 This article written by David Coley
was copied and published in this web site by Irene Moore.

     Bill Tevington remembers the games the Russians played just after W.W.II when he was on occupation duty in Germany.  One of their favorite tricks was to move the markers that designated the line between the U.S. and Soviet zones and wait  to snare unsuspecting American troops patrolling the border.
     Julian McCalla remembers too.  He was held at gunpoint by Russian guards in the Soviet sector of Berlin for the crime of accidentally crossing the demarcation line.  A member of the 16th Squadron, U.S. Constabulary, the U.S. Army's police and border patrol force in postwar Germany and Austria.   McCalla and his partner were pursuing a Russian soldier for theft in the U.S. zone.  As McCalla's jeep neared the Russian zone, he noticed that the warning signs had been moved.  Before he had time to react his jeep was surrounded by armed Russian guards and he was looking down a barrel.
     McCalla need not have worried.  The Russians had grabbed him for ransom.  His release was assured, the grim features of his captors turned to smiles once McCalla's superiors sent over cigarettes and whiskey.  Tevington remembers this was the standard fare at the time for the release of "captured" Americans.
     The year was 1946.  The Cold War was just beginning along the Iron Curtain.  But a year after the end of W.W.II no one quite knew or understood the Russians intentions.  Their behavior was annoying but not yet completely Machiavellian.
     By 1948, however, relations between the Americans and Russians were ugly.  The Soviets blockaded Berlin and the demarcatino between East and West from the Baltic to the Adriatic, and in Berlin, became a no man's land of barbed wire fences and minefields.

Unique Unit
First on Curtain
     In 1946, the men who patrolled the borders of the American sectors in Germany, Austria and Berlin, particularly those contiguous with the Soviet zones, were part of the U.S. Constabulary, one of the more unique forces ever assembled by the U.S. Army.
     Named for a similar force that brought order to the Philippines after the insurrection of the early 1900's, the Constabulary in occupied Europe became officially operational in July 1946.
     It was designed both for border patrol and internal police duties in the U.S. zone of Germany, an administrative area of some 43,000 square miles, rough the size of Pennsylvania.  Its jurisdiction also included the U.S. zones in Austria and Berlin, as well as the Bremen enclave.
     Leading the Constabulary in 1946 was the blunt and growling  Maj.Gen. Ernest Harmon, the W.W.II armored commander who whipped the Constabulary into shape from a smattering of disbanding and generally undisciplined units.
     Harmon dressed his Constabulary troops in blue and gold striped helmet liners, Sam Browne belts over dress blouse or Eisenhower jacket, golden neckerchief made from parachute silk, yellow gloves and paratrooper boots, with yellow laces, polished to a gleam.
     Their shoulder patch was a large blue C on a circular yellow shield, pierced by a red lightning bolt.  The men of the U.S. Constabulary became known affectionately and sometimes not so affectionately, as the "Circle C Cowboys" Germans called them the "Blitz Polizei", or "Lightning Bolt Police".
     The Constabulary's peak authorized strength was 35,000 men organized into three brigades and 10 regular regiments.  Each regiment had three patrols squadrons and each squadron had five troops.  One regiment, the 4th was assigned duty in Austria.  One of its squadrons, the 16th, served in Berlin.  The units were seldom at full strength since men were constantly rotated home.
     The Constabulary also employed horse cavalry units, arguably the last ever used in the Army.  Some 10 platoons of 30  horse soldiers each patrolled the borders of Germany, Austria and Berlin.  They carried their rifles in "scabbards," and wore britches and cavalry boots.  They may have made old cavalrymen proud, but the horse soldiers of the Constabulary often were a grand amusement to the  mechanized GIs of 1946.  Nevertheless, horses were ideal for riot control in refugee camps and on border patrol, particularly in heavily forested frontier areas and supplemented jeeps and armored cars forming most of the patrol units.

Dick Barker
Kitzingen, Germany

     I enlisted in the Regular Army in September 1946 and sailed for Germany on the Richardson in March 1947. The replacement depot in Kassel assigned me to U.S. Constabulary training at the 14th Con Regiment in Kitzingen.
     I have a picture of some of my fellow trainees: Pchola, Kelly, Gallant, Ericson, Demuyuck, Harris and Fulck. Although I went through field artillery basic at Fort Knox, the assigning officer said, "I see you're a high school graduate. We'll change your MOS to clerk-general." Sounds like typical army reasoning. And so upon completion of the 8-week course at Kitzingen, I was assigned as an officers' clerk in headquarters troop, 10th Con Sqdn in Wurzburg. Although I had never touched a typewriter keyboard in my life, the first day on the job I was asked to type up a list of squadron officers, about a couple dozen names. Needless to say, it took about all day of hunt and peck, and many sheets of paper, to produce the list.
     In July 1947 the Constabulary was reorganized and I was assigned to the 71st Con Sqdn at Schwabisch Hall near Stuttgart. I became the squadron personnel clerk for A troop. My MOS was changed to clerk typist apparently because that's what the job called for. Although by now I could type with three fingers and a thumb. Still do today but fairly fast. I made sergeant in February 1948. The personnel officer was CWO Ballard. Ranking NCO was T/Sgt William Bennett. Also in the section were: Eric Kolhof, Queens, NY; Gene Simmons, Moses Lake, WA; John Arnett, Moberly, MO; and Carlson, a former merchant marine. 
     I returned to the States and was discharged in August 1948. When the Korean War broke out, I was recalled to active duty and served at the Boston Army Base for a year with M/Sgt Frank Kut and S/Sgts Joe Wilson and Don Everett. In the early sixties, I met General Harmon when he spoke at a Chamber of Commerce dinner. He was then president of Norwich University. I told him I had been one of his troopers. "That was a great outfit, wsn't it?' he said. And so it was.  And now after that service and more than 41 years of newspaper publishing, my bride of 52 years and I live on a golf course in Florida. Is this a great country or what?

I was a member of the XV Corps,HQ Company, barracked in an old Panzer
barracks in Bamberg, when the Constabulary was formed...They moved in and
took over our operation...transferred all our personnel to the Big C...I never
changed desks..just put a C on my uniform and that's how fast it happened.
I was in the G2 section, General Harmons' office was adjacent to ours...I
substituted as his secretary, when his steady was on leave...Major Hay was
my section leader...He offered me six stripes to stay for 6 more months, but
I declined and came home after only about 6 months in the Big C...
I have dozens of pics and a hand carved wooden scrap book of the activities
at this time...Walter Sanders did a picture spread of the HQ for Life magazine...I was his
escort around the complex...I've tried to get the pics from Life, but they
say they are in a separate archive...I haven't followed this up, since I am
an officer in a Computer club here in our retirement community...too much to do...

Carl H. Gray
Augsburg, Germany


My name is Carl H. Gray and a member of the United States Constabulary Association.
I've been hoping to hear from some of my old comrades from the time. I was a trooper.
I was originally with the 2nd ACR at Sheridan Kaserne in Augsburg from Jan 1950-Oct 1951.
 I was at first with the Heavy Tank Co, 1st Bn for a few months and then transferred over to the 2nd Squadron,
1st Bn until transferring out to the 97th Armd QM Bn at Roth by Nurnberg the end of Oct 1951 and
then to Hqs Spec Troops with 7th Army at Vaihingen.
 I got out in Dec 1952, went to college then came back in with the USAF, got out again, worked
on the Mercury Project for a while then went DOD civilian until retirement in Dec 1987.
You don't seem to have to many troopers who were with the 2nd ACR.
When joining the Association about two years ago (was told of it's existence by the son of a former trooper) I submitted
 about 8 or 9 names of those troopers that I could still remember.
My nickname when a trooper was Kinder.

BG Samuel McC. Goodwin
Berlin, Germany
My husband, BG Samuel McC. Goodwin, was responsible for creating and
commanding the 16th Constabulary (Separate) in Berlin in 1946 at the
conclusion of World War II.  He was a lieutenant colonel at the time, having
spent the war years with the 6th Cavalry Squadron/Groupwhich he ended up
commanding at the end of the war.  The term "Separate" associated with the
16th Constabulary was not so much related to the physical distance of the
unit from the other Constabulary units stationed in the area of West Germany
as it was to the fact that both logistically and in terms of command
responsibility the 16th was independent of the regular chain of command.
Very sincerely,
KIKI GOODWIN

  I am Al Inlow and I joined the Army in 1948, in those days you had a choice of Joining the Second Cav. in Korea,  Alaska, or the US Constabulary in Germany.  I chose the Constabulary, so upon completion of Basic Training at Fort Ord California, I was put on a troop train to cross the US to Camp Kilmer N.J. waiting for further shipment to Bremen haven Germany aboard  the Bernard J. Ray.  From Bremenhaven by train to Marburg for an assignment, which was on to Sonthoffen to the 91st Field Artillery 155 howitzers.  About a month after arrival we changed to the 519th Field Artillery Bn.  We maneuvered all over Germany, one of our main stopping areas was Vilseck.  We had a Battery on line all the time at the Fulda Gap. Around 1951 we transferred to Babenhausen, near Frankfurt stayed in a tent City while they rebuilt our barracks.  We had a 8" self propelled Bn move on the Camp  with us as they were putting more troops into Germany as the Korean war was going on.  Our battalion helped set up a tent city in Baumholder for the 2nd Armored division who was in route to Germany at that time. 1952 we changed over to Seventh Army and late 1952 returned to the U.S. for discharge.
 Altogether I got about 15 years in Germany between the Army and Civil Service.

I am extremely pleased to find so much information on the Constabulary.  I just returned today from Outpost #3 reunion in Williamsburg, Va.
My name ia John H. Keyser. I served in the Constabulary from June 1946 until June 1947. I was assigned to Headquarters Troop, 5th Regiment as a clerk in the S-2 Section, in Augsburg.

 One of our discussions concerned recruting new members and losing current members because of non- payment of dues. I am most interested in pursuing this problem and have several ideas on how we, as an association  could be more effective in reaching troopers who are not aware of the fact that we have an association. I am also interested in contacting troopers that were associated with the 5th Regiment in Augsburg in l946 and '47.

East Germany
In 1946, I was a PFC in The designation (Separate) was, to my knowledge, ONLY used by the 16th
 Squadron as it was the ONLY U.S. Constabulary Squadron in East Germany and was NOT part of the Zone Constabulary.
 The 16th Constabulary Sqdn. (Sep) was the only unit to wear a "tab" or "flash" with the word [CONSTABULARY]1/2 inch ABOVE their Circle C insignia. The tab or flash was only worn by troopers who had been with the squadron for thirty (30) days and had not committed any offenses. If they did, the tab / flash was to removed from the trooper's uniform. However, after a while, a Troop officer could approve the reissuring the tab/flash to the Trooper who had misbehaved. The 16th
 Squadron's FIRST commander was, then, Lieutenant Colonel, Samuel McClure GOODWIN

 I served in the 16th Constabulary Squadron (Sep.) from March through December in 1947.  I was originally assigned to finish a history of the squadron that someone else had started.  My boss soon complained that baseball was taking up too much of my time, so my baseball manager had me transferred to his office.  I assume that the history, some of which had already been written, was about that squadron, not the entire constabulary, but I cant remember for sure.  However, if anyone knows if it was ever finished, Id sure like to see a copy.  It was a great experience.

Ms. Moore,
I am greatly impressed with your web site! It brought back many memories as I
scrolled through. I haven't seen all of it, but I look forward to a more
leisurely "scroll" down memory lane when I have the time.

I arrived in Germany in early 1947 if my memory is correct. I do recall going
to Marburg where I was assigned to the First Con. Brigade Hq in Weisbaden. I
was sent to radio school in Wetzler and returned to Weisbaden as a radio
operator. I can still remember the call signs of some of the other units of
the First Brigade:  we(Hq) were  1EN ("one easy nan") ; others were C49
(charley four niner) and 21J (two one jig). Repetition burned them into my
memory.

I have been a member of the Constabulary Association for about a year. So far
I have not run across any familiar names. I intend to order a complete roster
of the membership and expect to see some old friends' names on the list.

Thank you for your efforts in providing this web site. In a way, your dad
becomes "Constabulary" personified, and all of us are honored by what you
have done.

 I was assigned to the 2nd Calvary when I first got there; but a few month
later we became the 2nd Constabulary.   I sure would like to hear from Lt.

1946 & 47.   I near 80 years old and live in Hokes Bluff, AL.
I still would like to hear from any one who served in and around Lenggries, Germany and the Bavarien Alps in 1945 - 1946.

    Thanks for any help you can give, God Bless America.

Robert [Bob] Nilsen
Wetzlar, Germany
 I entered the Army in Portland Maine in 1949.  Took basic training with the 9th Div at Ft Dix N.J. and went overseas on the troop  ship George W. Gothels. After a miserable winter crossing arrived at the replacement center in Marburg Germany for assignment in the Constabulary in January 1950.  My unit was Service Battery 517th Field in Wetzlar. Later moved to Bodega and unit redesignated 517th Armored Field. Like all units most of the time was in the field or border assignments.  My 3 year tour was up in December 1952 and was separated on 12/21/52, but served the next 30 years in the active reserve retiring in August 1985.  My civilian career was in the Insurance business in New Jersey.  In 1976 my wife and I took a vacation to Alaska and loved it so much we returned every year. Finally I retired from business and we moved here permanently in 1993.  By that time my whole family had moved up. We have two sons and one
  daughter plus four Grandchildren all living either in Eagle River or 20 miles North in Wasilla.  I am happy I cut out the article in the VFW magazine regarding the Constabulary  Association which I joined.  After purchasing the list of members I found a close friend that I had entered the Army with, took basic with and spent 3 years in the same unit.
    I would be happy to hear from any Trooper.
God Bless you all.

 Constabulary Sqdn in Fussen, Germany. Bavaria was a beautiful part of Germany. We could see Neuschwanstein Castle in the distance every morning while standing formation.

Sent to Augsburg when the 35th Sqdn was absorbed  into the 42nd Sqdn, 2nd ACR still with "D" Troop and performing regular Trooper's duties. Re-assigned to the states and discharged in 1948.

Was very surprised and pleased to find a site devoted to the US Constabulary.  During all these years of asking questions about this fine organization, I thought I was the only one who knew of its existance.  Guess I should "surf" the net more often. I was assigned to Svc Btry, 70th FA Bn between May 1950 to January 1952 at Fussen and Nurnberg. At that time I reenlisted for the Military Police from which I retired 19 years later (I joined the Army in Jan 1949 at the ripe age of 16.
 Saw several individuals in your site who were at Fussen and will be contacting them.  Thank you very much for establishing this site, I hope you realize how important it is for an "old" Circle C Cowboy like me.

3rd Constabulary Regt'l Band 1945-1947
It was the late winter of 1947 and we had to proceed to the 81st Constabulary Squadron at Fulda. General Harmon was coming to review the troops. We had our trooper boots shined to the hilt with white gloves and all. We rode up from Wetzlar in I think they were called 6 by's. About 10 steps and we were a muddy mess. I will not complain because it was better duty then being up at Bastogne 1 and 1/2 years earlier. The Band also serviced what I think was the 37th Constabulary Squadron in a town called Wielburg.

I was in the 5th Constabulary Headquarters on the initial organization of the group. That was even before they moved to Augsburg. This was at Gablingen Air Base outside Augsburg. I was with Willard Wimer and Don Stolts in the regimental office with Capt. Blair C Minthorn and Major James Cutter. We had two full colonels at the time named James Handy, one with a permanent rank and another with a temporary rank. The one with the temporary rank was later sent back to attend the War College. My stay was short but one I will never forget as well as the good friends I made in the regiment.

 Raymond E Urbanski
Coburg, Friedberg and Bad Hersfeld

 I joined the Army Feb. 1950, took basic training at Ft Knox Kentucky. Most of my unit was in the first big push in  Korea and are no longer with us. Since I applied for clerk typist school, I did not go to Korea, instead after completion of the school I was sent to Coburg, Germany and was assigned to Tank Company, 3rd Battalion, 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment and was the Personnel Clerk. Our battalion was moved to Friedberg and then to Bad Hersfeld and in early part of 1953, myself along with 15 others were transferred to the 510th tank Battalion in Mannheim, Germany. In 1955 I was assigned to Tank Company, 2nd Bn, 3rd A/C and Gyroscoped between Bamberg, Ger and Ft GeoG Meade, Md until 1959 at which time I decided to call it quits. A lot has happened in my life in those 50 years. My daughter was born in 1957, 98th General Hosp, Nurnberg and now I have 3 grandsons, 1 granddaughter and 1 great grandson 2 yrs old.  God bless each and every one of you regardless of which unit you were in. In 1950 while I was with Tank Co 3rd Bn 14th A/C we had our Christmas dinner in the mess hall in Friedberg, Ger. I sent the menu which had a roster of the entire company, Officers and Enlisted men to my mother and when she died I found it in her papers. Anyone interested in a copy of it  just let me know. I also have a web page that you may be interested in and that is www.excelir.com/raymart where you will find my home phone number and address.  Thanks for you time.

 Completed radio operator's course in Rothwesten aroung May 1947, then went to 91st Constab in Bad Hersfeld. Married a gal from Sontra and we're still together. Spend about three months a year in Sontra and visit Bad Hersfeld and Kassel quite often. Kassel sure changed since I first visited there in 1947. Remember there was a brewery named A Kropf Braueiri, used to trade cigarettes for good beer out of a can. At that time it was being made for Amercans only. Some memories. Bad Hersfeld hasn't changed too much and the clock on top of Headquarters building is still running.

I want to thank you all for putting this web site together,
as I know how difficult and time consuming it can be. It is historical and I
hope the younger generation will see it and realize how much effort we GIs
put in both in war and peace time.  Without standing on a political platform I
sincerely wish the congress and our senators and representatives would also
recognize our efforts and keep the promises that the services made to us when
we were young and gullible recruits.  On our fight for freedom, we must praise
those who didn't make it through and support those who did.

1946
Austria

I served in the 24th US Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron - Troop C (Mechanized Cavalry)
and later the unit changed to the 24th US Constabulary Squadron.

My troop was in the VE Day parade that took place on May 8,1946 in Salzburg, Austria.
We were also called the DC (District Constabulary).  Before the parade the color of our vehicles was changed from a flat olive drab color to a shiny green color.  When I first arrived in Austria my troop and I were placed in the town of Bad Shallerbach.  We stayed in an old hotel building.  Later we were placed in Enns, Austria and lived in the SS-Baracks.  We were most of the time stationed in Bad Shallerback and Enns but we went back and forth to many of the towns doing work and guard duty.  We were in Steyr a lot of the time doing work that needed to be done.  The headquarters was in Linz.  My unit guarded the bridge in Enns and Linz that crossed the Danube River.  The Americans were on one side of the river and the Russians were on the other side. The US soldiers were not allowed to go over into the Russian zone.  We worked with the Austrian police.  In Steyr we destroyed the small arms weapons. We were at many of the DP camps in Steyr, Linz, Enns and the surrounding towns and were in contact with many of the Displaced Persons.
I am attaching a photo of myself taken in Austria during my stay.

As I was browsing through my computer I noticed something I was looking for years .  Well that is when
I finished my tour with the 14th Armored Calvary Regiment which I was trying to trace down .  My last duty station was in Fulda Germany.  I spent about four years attached to Service Company.   I was in S-4 drawing supplies for the regiment I had other duties there too.  You don' t know how glad it made me.  It was in 1948 or early 1949  my first duty station was in Fritzlar.  Next we moved to Gelnhousen and then to Fulda I believe our Regimental was Col. Ryan and our 1st Sgt. was Sgt. Philley.  Utica, New York 13502

I served with the 25th Constabulary Sqd. at Straubing, Germany and with the 1st
Batt. "C" Co. 6th AMC Reg. I was a driver on a M24 Recon Tank.  My job in the
Constabulary took me around to many towns including guarding the Russian Border.
Florida is my home state and I am a member of the US Constabulary Association

I would like to hear from any of my "ole"Constabulary friends.
