I love my country and want to let the brave men and women that have served, are serving, plan to enter any branch of armed forces or especially those who gave their life for our freedom. That you are loved, your great sacrifices are not in vain. While I openly admit to no confidence in government officials, this is not about them. I do place my life and freedom in your capable hands. I do trust you. With my most earnest love and gratitude. Sincerely, Miss Cathy Kirkland Wilmington,N.C.(formerly) kn_cathykirkland@webtv.net

I´m 27 years old and I´m looking for my grandfather. I don´t have much informations about him, but I know that he was an US-soldier, and he was in Fulda 1946, because my dad was bborn in 1947. My grandmother doesn´t speak about him, I don´t know why. Her name was Auguste (Gutti, Gusti) Schiebener, and she was also from Fulda. One day she told me, the name of my grandfather was "Bob Shortstuff" and he died by an excident near Munich. But I don´t know,..., is that really the truth? Maybe someone knows "Bob" and can tell me when and where he was born, and when and where he died. Maybe someone has a picture, or has an idea, where I can search for him. I hope you will help me. Best wishes, André

After these many years the most outstanding thing I can remember is the five day hundred mile hike we made. I am now retired and miss the old days.

Hello Irene!
Finally, after several tries, I got and copied the book "Headquarters US Constabularies,the establishment and operation of the US-Constabularies 1946-1952" (origin of the Heidelberg us military library)and sent for me to Wiesbaden Airbase. Both women, Mrs.D and Mrs Mary... from Heidelberg and Wiesbaden were very nice in supporting me. I´ll donate to both a small chocolate present.To get in to the base was not so easy, real good check up, although I´m not from Far East. The copies I will sort out and I´ll sent it to you as soon I have the time. You know about my hard weekends organising at present, because of my mother...05.05.07.
This bookcopy I find is rare, so I believe it would be good for our constabulary museum or/and our historien to draw information for our monthly lightning bolt.
The photos of US-Constabularies, I told you about, will follow this year, hope in autum.
Take care! Have all a nice fathers day.

My father also served as a Tanker (Armored Troop) with the 7th Inf. Div. in Korea 1954, with a Constabulary type mission securing and safe guarding the railhead in Seoul.

On Saturday morning, Dec 9th 2006 I had a talk with the players of the Dallas Cowboys Football team and told them that on the next day, Sunday the 10th of December they would be playing a team called the New Orlean Saints. I told them that I had a very good friend named Irene Moore who lives in Louisiana and I imagine her team is the Saints. I told them to do me a favor and let the Saints win the game. They all told me they would and they did. The score was 42-17. Now Irene, I still love ya and you will always be my friend but one time is enough. Next time we play, Dallas 27 - New Orleans, 10 ------Ray

Any one out there remember me?
We left Brooklyn N.Y aboard the USS Boise bound for LeHavre France around November 1945. We had 8 men washed overboard and never recovered them in as much as they were missing the day after we left New York, the first night on the Alantic. We arrived in Plymouth England on Thanksgiving Day and we wer not allowed to go on land. We left for Le Havre France and arrived the next day. We were camped at Camp Pall Mall and after several days we boarded the 40x8s (Left over freight cars from World War 1.. After several days on these box cars we arrived at a little know town called Laubasechbach. Wow that's as bad as my last name. We were billetted in a dentist's house and then aboard some trucks we headed and stayed in Marburg, in what had previously been a mental hospital and I believe became the third repple depple hospital.

Several days there and then it was on to our most permanent location and the name of this little fairy tale town, Fronhausen/Lahn.
We were billetted in private houses and operated under our new name 17th Cavalry reconnasens Squadron, Troop C, 3rd platoon. We were called the District Constabulary. I remember a Lt. Kristenoff and and old lifetime career 1st Seargent Gecsey. Did not know it at the time but there were soldiers that had come out of U.S.Army stockades that were sent over seas to do good time. Wow what a bunch of guys to put little old me in with. We were told to do a lot of patrols, so the Germans would know that we did not abandon them to the Russians. Like we could have held them off if a war with them had broken out. Several months later I enrolled in a signal school in Sechenheim Germany. Learned Morse Code and learned how to fend off the Russian Radio Jammers. Went back to my troop then after several weeks, and did a small stint as a Courier for the CIC and CID. This did not last long and several months, I can't remember, how long we and the whole 17th were moved to a town near Bad Nauheim. I know we spent many Saturday Nights at the dances at the Stadt Hallin Heidelberg. Some time in October of 1946 we were shipped home to the good old USA
We left from Bremerhaven aboard the General CC Ballou. A real down to earth Liberty ship. I was discharged shortly after being processed at Camp Kilmer N.J.

So if you know me drop me a line.

He sailed to Bremerhaven on the USNS Gen. Rose on 18 June 1951, and was then stationed in Karlsruhe (APO 403) w. the 552d AAA Gun Bn. After that, for a time, he was in Mannheim. He was sent back to the 95th AAA Gun Bn, Sandhofen in November 1951 and returned to the US in Feb. 1952.

I spent 18 months in Fulda from Dec. 54 June 56 and had the best job in the area. I was in charge of the telephone exchange and the switchboard and tty and never went out in the field. I always felt sorry for those fellows who went out in all weather in jeeps to patrol the border. I got back for a visit in 1976 with my family and even got a chance to visit the border OP and watch tower. By then the kaserne was getting run down. I visited the CO of the Hqtrs. Troop and recall seeing an unpatched hole in his office wall. The day we went out to the border we passed two tanks and some other vehicles that had broken down enroute to the OP when they rotated in a fresh platoon.

I was very impressed with the E.German border and watch towers. It's what we need now on our sothern border.

A few days ago I did a net search for the Oberbayern and was happy to see that it was still going on altho it looked as tho they had moved from their 1954 location. Lots of great recollections while reading these pages.

I arrived in Germany aboard the General Black in April 1949. Went to Straubing and drove ammo truck for service co 6th AC until January 1950. They transfered me to C Co and then to tank school in Vilseck. When i finished tank school i asked C Co for a transfer to the school.

I transfered to Vilseck in June 1950 . I was an instructor at the school until April 1952. When I got back to the States I rejoined the Michigan National Guard ( I had belonged to the Guard before I joined the Army )

I retired from the Guard as a LTC with 33 years service. I now live in Northern Michigan.

Anyone out there remember me ? I would like to hear from my old Buddies

Hello Irene!
Was on weekend in France, at Verdun, Maginot line.
Heaviest battle WW I in World. Americans where there too, but no sign of US-Cavalry.
Over miles still all bomb/ grenade crater are to be seen. Hardly any heavy vegetation, thin trees, gras. The memory is well taken care of.
I talked to some elderly people. They said, that Verdun battle was more worse then parts of the WW II. The fight itself, man to men, no shelter against Grenades, no food and water and always wet in mud for 4 years.
If some troopers visit France, WW II places at coastline, that Verdun you should not miss.
All rememberplaces, f. i., the grave of the famous unknown 6 soldiers standing, sleeping with their Guns under sand, churches and memorials are in very perfect and clean condition.
Take care

From 1949 until 1953, my family was stationed in Landshut, Germany, where my father, MSGT Henry V. Canedo, was a first sergeant for a battery that was part of the 74th AFA (I know because I recognized the crest is like the ones that he wore). His CO was a CPT MacDonough, not sure about the spelling, but the captain was a graduate of Ohio State and a big fellow.

We first lived in a house on Leopold Strasse, not too sure about the name, then moved to mixed senior NCO/junior officer apartments at the foot of the hill where Landshut's castle sits. Our neighbors included a Japanese-American family from Hawai'i who had a Samoyed named Snowball, and a 1SGT Johnson lived across the hall from us. I remember he had a pretty little daughter named Dixie Lee who was about my age (we were 4 and 5 at the time).

In the twenty years since I was there the street, main roads have change. It took us two hours to find my sister-in-laws house.

Hello former Rothwesten Constabulary troopers, near Kassel Germany.
The base Fritz Erler Kaserne in Rothwesten near Kassel is farely closed down. Last week the flags were taken down. The soldiers will have to find a new base. Only 60 Soldiers will remain for some admin. tasks.
The future of the very historic base and the currency galery is open, the birth place of the Westgerman Deutsche Mark.
What will happen with the beautiful winggirl at the entrance? The old wallpaintings, the casino with led windows? Perhaps a rich American can buy it before some Holigans or Antiwar freaks, others, tare it down??
The remaining tanks (Roland)HOT will be dismantled instead of being sold. "We Germans are so rich"!!
Hope they won´t destroy the historic tanks which are standing in the base (chain/wheels and 4-Flak.

Take care. Happy New Year to all Troopers.

Memories of old. Marburg, Coburg, Friedberg, Bad Hersfeld, the 50's, The old tank with the two laterals, pull on one and turn right, pull the other turn left, what was that the M26 before the M47, can't remember the numbers, but I can remember the sap from the trees that glued my eyes closed after a nights sleep in the sleeping bag, or the cold steel from the tank if I slept inside the tank, The good old days when I could fit down the hatch at 152 lbs, today 300 lbs, wouldn't go thru the hole. I remember the day when I reenlisted for 6 yrs and became rich overnight when I was paid a whopping I believe it was $360.00 bonus just to see it all disappear before my eyes on the ship as I tossed the dice on the bunks every day on my way home for a 30 day reenlistment leave. And the day that I flew recon over the plowed strip with a Lt who asked me if I wanted to fly with him that day. While we were up there he said you see over there, those are Russian machine gun nests, they could shoot us down if we get to far over this plowed ground. A little scary. Good old days, bring back any memories to anyone. And the good old days of the rank freeze when I did the job of Sgt and got paid Cpls pay. I believe my worst memory was the RIFF program where the Army turned our Battalion Exec Officer from a Major to and SFC. Oh no, that wasnn't it, the worst is when I sat in the dentist chair in a 2 1/2 ton truck for 3 hours while a Corporal and a Lt tried to remove a wisdom tooth.

Hi, I was surprised to find this web site. I have "fond" memories of the C troops as a little kid (4 yrs. old), on the "other side." You guys gave me my first introduction to chewing gum and Hershey bars! We were deported by the Germans as forced laborers to Regensburg in late 1944, but that place was destroyed before we got there, so they placed us in a small town (Graselfing) a few miles from Landshut, into a labor camp. After liberation, we had to stay there as there was no transportation available. The C troop and the local farmers were our only sustenance for three years until we got into an IRO camp and eventually emmigrated to the US. Anyone who has information on the Graselfing camp, please speak up and let me in on it. I have many isolated memories, but someone older at the time would have a better insight. I visited the place in 1981, while I worked as a petroleum engineer for Chevron in Europe, but everything about the camp had already been removed, and it was only a large potato field. A few of the old folk in the village remembered the camp but were "embarrased" to talk about it at any length ... other than Ja, it was there, and we got rid of it ... danke shoen! E_mail me if you have any recollections of the place. Regards, Tib Csabai t_csabai@hotmail.com

I joined the 2nd Regiment in Friesing in January 1947 for Constabulary training. I was transferred to Lenggries in the 2nd Squadron, A Troop. Later in 1947 the 2nd Squadron was disbanded and we were transferred to the 66th Constabulary Squadron in Degerndorf. The unit was later redesignated as the 6th Armored Cavalry Regiment and I was with H company. Most of the time I was in clerical or administrative positions. I left in 1949 as a T/3.

While in Wetzlar I was given demolition training and cavalry training. I finished my enlistment as a trooper in the 68th(?) in Augsburg.
I was discharged in 1948. I do not remember all the units that I was in, but I do remember being in Wetzlar while Rita Hayworth made a visit.

For Constabulary personal who are Interested In knowing what newspapers back home are saying
About us, the Bolt presents this second’ to a series of articles on Constab currently appearing In Stateside newspapers.

Labeling the Constabulary” as the Force. Well-trained' to meet any. Attacks from the East,” New ‘York Times

reports to nationwide readers: “The highly mobile, well trained United States Constabulary would be, the first

military group to meet any invasion ‘of ‘the United States zone.

“This force Is understood to be composed of approximately 20,000, to 25000,men strung, along ’the frontier

from Kassel to Salzburg. The Constabulary is armed with medium (and, possibly of late, I with heavy) tanks but

appears to rely mainly on fast armored cars. “The group originally was formed: In 1945 as a force to “police”

Germany and that was Its principal task for the first two years. “Gradually, however, the West ‘Germans took

over their own policing activities.

During the same period friction with the Communists increased and the Constabulary became the United

States’ “shock” force in West Germany. Actually, along with the First Division, It is the only real, combat”

force. in the United-States zone’. “From the’ beginning, great emphasis on morale has been used on these

troops. The troopers are permitted to wear, special articles of “uniform, notably golden scarves “and yellow

striped’ helmets. The helmet decoration earned the troopers the name of “potato bug” among the West

Germans. “Along, with those morale. Building” privileges the troopers have received a continuous dose of very

tough training. In maneuvers,. For instance, they are usually the attacking forces.

“ While the Constabulary, always has tried to get as many professionals as possible the percentage. Of combat

veterans is only slightly higher than in an average division. The Constabulary’s equipment Is the best available

here, although much it Is well worn. “Recently one of the top Army officials here Insisted that the Constabulary

and the First Division ‘could “take care”, of the East German People's Police should it attack, and “quickly push

them back ‘out.” The same official conceded that if the Russians attacked the United States forces here could

Not do much against them.”

U.S. Constabulary
The Beginning
A beginning had already been made in September, when G-2, USFET, recommended creating security forces for each military district (and Berlin and Bremen) to be composed of MPs, CIC detachments, and district constabularies. The district constabularies would be mechanized cavalry groups taken from the tactical units, given special instruction in military government laws and ordinances, trained in conducting raids and searches, and employed as quick, mobile security reserves. G-2 also proposed a distinctive uniform, but G-4 could not supply any special items of dress; and when the districts activated their constabularies in November, the only distinguishing marks were the letters "DC" painted in yellow on the front of the helmet liners.77
From the idea of the district constabularies, USFET in the fall of 1945 evolved the concept of the United States Constabulary, a self-sufficient security force for the whole zone. Calculating on the basis of one constable (plus signals, supply, and air reconnaissance) for 450 Germans, Eisenhower informed the War Department that a constabulary of 38,000 men would be enough to establish police-type control by 1 July 1946, assuming that by then the surplus property, DP, and prisoner of war burdens would have been substantially eliminated. The estimated savings in the Occupational Troop Basis would amount to 81,000 spaces, since the supporting tactical troops could be reduced to three divisions and one army headquarters.78
The organizational plans, completed at the turn of the year, provided for a Headquarters, US Constabulary, comparable to a corps headquarters; three brigade headquarters, one for each Land capital; nine regimental headquarters, one for each Regierungsbezirk; and twenty-seven squadrons, located so as to cover one or more Kreise.79 Each squadron would have three mechanized and two motorized troops (thirteen men to the troop) equipped with M5 armored cars mounting 37-mm. cannons (the mechanized troops only), quarter- and half-ton trucks, .30-caliber light machine guns, Thompson submachine guns, rifles, pistols, and code and voice radios. The US Constabulary was to be an elite force of handpicked men, distinguishable from the other troops by their highly polished paratroop boots, service coats in place of the standard Eisenhower jacket, gold silk scarves, Sam Browne belts, and lacquered helmet liners circled with a half-inch blue stripe flanked by two half-inch yellow stripes and with the constabulary insignia (a gold disc bordered in blue with the letter "C" in blue pierced by a bolt of lightning in red) on the front. 80
As late as mid-February 1946, however, the US Constabulary consisted only of a plan and a headquarters. When Maj. Gen. Ernest N. Harmon was appointed commanding general on 10 January, he was for a time the sole member of the constabulary. By mid-February, he had selected a headquarters staff; on the 16th, a constabulary school opened in the former Adolf Hitler Schule at Sonthofen to train members of a cavalry reconnaissance squadron as teachers for the main body of the constabulary yet to be assigned.

I was assigned to the 16th Constabulary Squadron (Separate), Berlin, Germany in January 1947. I was the Orderly Room Clerk for Troop B. When It was removed as a line organization, I was reassigned, along with an officer and about 3 sergeants, to Troop E. All of the tanks and equipment belonging to Troop E had been sent to the American Zone. Within a few weeks, all of the others in Troop E were either rotated back to the States or reassigned to one of the other troops. That left me as the only man in the outfit. I worked as a personnel specialist at Squadron Headquarters. Since I was still the only man in E Troop, I typed up ahead of time all the reports, such as morning reports and payrolls. I was probably the only man in the army that was his own CO, 1st Sgt, etc.

Captain Richard A. Beyer had been my CO at Troop B and had been reassigned to Headquarters. When the Squadron went on manuevers, he became Acting CO for the Squadron. He asked me to be the Sgt Major. I was barely 18, and I thought I was in heaven! First Sergeant Donald Sandstrom was the Personel Sgt/Major, and I also filled in for him sometimes when he was on leave, etc.

If any of the people I worked for and/or with see this, I would appreciate very much hearing from them. I still believe the 16th Constabulary Squadron (Separate) was the finest organization the army ever had.

I didn't even know he was still around. I believe it was sometime in 1951 (when I was a Circle C Cowboy) that I saw him referee a fight between the American GI's and the Germans. He was 99 yrs old when he died. He beat Joe Louis and then Joe knocked him out later. I saw Joe Louis put on a 3 round exibition fight in Michigan City, Indiana when I was about 15 yrs old. A lightning left jab. I remember back then if someone said a person was 99 yrs old I really thought it was old. Not any more. Take care and lets all live to be at least 199.

Hello Constabularies

This week the German socialist Government decided to cut down german defense power and save mony.
Many bases will be closed down. Also the famous base in Rothwesten (new cityname Fuldatal)where the Deutsche Mark was born in 1948 in the base Rothwesten (house Posen)under support of the US-Army.
If some soldiers want to see it again still working, it should happen in the next two years.I´ll keep you informed about goings on.
I doubt,the German GOvernment will keep the inside of the barracs like it is now, with all the wallpaintings and casinowindow etc.,may be they pull everything down.

Hello friends, I'm a German police officer, ret., I'm born Dec.1947 and grew up with the Berlin Brigade. American GI's, maybe from your Constabulary unit, had brought my mother in the hospital because I came 2 months too "early" and there was no other help at that time! I still live in the former US sector Zehlendorf, about 800 yards away from the US-Clay HQ. I 'm missing the BerlinBrigade so much, almost 50 years it was very "close" to me. Thanks for your great job, GOD bless AMERICA!
I've got the info about your unit from a proud Constabulary veteran. He had sent me your unit history, it is now on my HONOR-website-page!
Greetings from BERLIN, watch your health!

I just want to inform those that knew my lovely soul mate Gerry that she passed away yesterday morning. She will be sorely missed. Gerry joined me in Coburg German in early 1947 and we were together in Germany until we were reassigned to Fort Dix NJ. She enjoyed Germany and we had been back twice, to relive memories. She suffered a pulmonary problem for 5 years and it finally got the best of her. Our daughters, Jan & Lori, are here and have been a lot of support to this sobbing lover of Gerry's. A lot of the Constabulary Association knew her and know what a super person she was. And I am NOT exaggerating.

She is now as peace and has been released from her earthly ties.

Thanks to all who knew her. Bob, Jan & Lori Monasmith

My father, Lt. Myron Johnstone, served in both the 4th & 24th Constabulary Units in Austria, 1 May 1946 to 10 November 1947. He was headquarter company commander for the 4th Constabulary, and later the company exec officer, Troop C of the 24th Constabulary. He passed away in 1987. My mother, sister and I joined him in Linz, Austria, for the last year of his duty there. Quite an experience. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who might have known him. Others in his unit were Art LaCroix and Judd Miller. I've made contact with Art but not Mr. Miller. Thank you.

I am a gun dealer and just bought a collection from a widow and her husbands name was Saul A. Jackson, and retired as a Colonel. The helmet I have has a silver bar indicating he was a 1st Lt. back then. Also I have his pistol with yellow borders and blue stripe down the center with a C and a lightning bolt.

Hi Ted Stearns
All though I wasn't in your outfit I was in D Troop 72nd Sqd. in Boblingen just out side of Stuttgart, during 1946 into 1947. We were out posted in Ulm doing boarder patrol in Erbach and Blaubeauren at the French zone. I was also acting supply sargent in the GI stockade in (I think) Mohringen. I remember the Red Cross Club in the park in Stuttgart and the theater and the bowling alleys. I met my wife of 57 years in Ulm and we're atill going strong.

Just returned from OP-1 reunion in Rutland. First I'd like to say thanks to Ernie Colonge and his wife for organizing a very enjoyable affair, I think they did a great job. My wife Ellen and I had a nice time with John Oldenburg and his wife Margret. The wifes especially had a good time talking about their memories back in the early 40's In Germany. We also had a nice time talking with ( I hope I have this right)Chalie Elsea and his wife From OP-3 in Tenn. They were formerly from the area of my home town in Clifton, N.J. where they lived for 27 years, and where I was born and raised so we had a lot to talk about. Hope we can be around for more enjoyable times like this.

Hello everyone,

I want to give a brief report on the reunion of OP8 at Laughlin. We had over one hundred members attend and we had a grand time.

Our commander, Don Purrington could not attend due to his wife’s, Roslyn’s, surgery and time in recuperation. They both were missed.

Don asked Bob Monasmith, our National Adjutant and member of OP8, to step in and act on his behalf at the reunion. Bob did an exceptional job with the assistance of Neil Aikin. Gene Snowden and his wife Wanda did an outstanding job with the Hospitality room. Bill as always was a great bartender. We had invited Harvey and Pam Harms from OP6 to come to our reunion as they did last year. They accepted and came and they also helped Gene and Wanda set up the Hospitality room. My wife Lala and I helped Bob with the registration as did Neil and Sue Aikin.

Everything ran smoothly and I finally saw Bob smile on the night of the banquet. He was a happy man on that night as everything went smoothly thanks to his all out efforts to see that all went well.

We all had a great time thanks to the cooperation of all that came. I’ll let Bob give the official report but, “Bob, thanks for your leadership and ability to take care of all that needed doing. And I hope that you are sleeping well now.”

Our celebration didn’t end with the end of the reunion. The Harms’ came home with us and we showed them the California highlights. We visited Disneyland, Lake Tahoe, The Ponderosa Ranch, where the TV show “Bonanza” was filmed, we visited San Francisco and Alcatraz Island and Yosemite National Park. And before we left Laughlin, we took them to Las Vegas where we all left the obligatory donation. In all we traveled 2,200 miles together and we were still friends and talking after we took them to the airport in Sacramento on the 28th of April. We had a great time!!!

From the beginning, the Constabulary set high standards for itself. The troopers were to be selected from the best soldiers available, and it was desired that all of them be volunteers. They were to be trained as soldiers and policemen. They were to operate in an efficient, alert manner calculated to inspire confidence and respect in all persons they met, whether Germans, Allies, or Americans.
This will never be forgotten because the United States Constabulary was a very Elite Force.

Hi Ernest,

My name is Mary O'Shaughnessy. My father's name was Bob Johnson. He was with the 81st constabulary in the European theatre from September 1945-1949. I know he was an MP connected to the Nuremberg trials. The only thing he ever told me was that he transported Nazi war criminals to trial at Nuremberg. I have lots of pictures of the men in his group.
I even have a group shot withthe flag behind them and lots of their names are on the back s of the pictures. Dad wrote both their real names and their nick names. There is a man in the picture that I believe is a man that as a child I called Uncle Saxi. His given name was Isaac Sachs. He was my fathers best friend when I was growing up and my told me they serve together. I was wondering if you know or can find outif Uncle Saxi is still alive. Dad passed in 1997 and Uncle Saxi didnt come but we hadnt seen him in a few years. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am sending th group
picture incase it is any help to you.

However, Dad was able to eat as much ice cream as he wanted. Would like to know exactly what Army squadron/company Dad was assigned. He cannot recall.

Hello Irene,

Just read your e-mail about what brought you to this point as the web editor. It brought back memories of Paw Paw Gil and what I felt when the stories of his life were revealed to me. I am sure that every family can relate to the unselfishness, deication and sense of duty their loved ones demonstrated in that time of war. I remain proud of him and also of my Grand-Mother Elisabeth Matherne, for they overcame many difficult obstacles that changed their way of life. I am truly proud to be their grandson. Mom, you have shown that your sense of loyalty to them is undying and I can only hope to continue that in my daily life and be the same example to my family. I can only Hope to be half the man that my Paw Paw Gil was. Thank you! Richie

Charles, all the OP reunion dates are placed
in the Lightning Bolt issues many months
before they take place. The National Reunion
that just took place in Killeen, TX had it's
dates posted over a year before and in at
least 5 consecutive issues of the Lightning
Bolt as I recall. Haven't you received your
copies and if so don't you read them? In the
latest copy which I just received last week
on page 5 it lists 3 OP's with dates for
2004 and one has a site but dates are TBA.
So Charles,if you have any intention to
attend your OP reunion or the next national
just call your OP Commander and ask him. His
number is also in the Bolt. There really is
no excuse for not knowing when our reunions
take place.

Greetings to all members and friends of the USCA. We had many good people attend the convention in Killeen. I was happy to meet with many members I first met on the tour of Germany in 1996. We also had many that came to see if I really had horns or two heads and a tail as the many e-mails they received from an unhappy individual were fabricarted and caused confusion and doubt in many minds.
This unhappy individual has been dismissed - ousted from the Association - because of the disruption and unrest he had caused these past two plus years. Since things are not done in the manner he wants, and he has no power to control the situation, the only alternative is to destroy. Do not let that happen to this Association.
I noted in Killeen not to heed the Negative e-mails, but look to the Lightning Bolt to tell the truth. We have an editor with integrity who will only publish the truth.
However, I must now call your attention to message #530 in this Guest Book. He is at it again. This time by invading our website Guest Book. Message #530 is FALSE. As Commander, I never made that statement. Also, if you note the e-mail address appears to be that of the National Recruiter. IT IS NOT. That address has been selected to resemble that of the Recruiter, and is merely a fabrication to mislead. Do NOT believe any NEGATIVE messages in e-mail or on this website. I have been told that even his 'signature' sign-off has been plagiarized. If you care to, you have my blessing to e-mail this individual and tell him to GO...AWAY. And, for all those that pick up these negative accusations, endorse them, and then pass them on as 'fact' - you may also GO AWAY.
For all our Good People, enjoy the reunions, enjoy the Lightning Bolt (your comments are always welcome), and enjoy each other's company and 'War Stories.' That's why this Association was created and what it's all about. Be aware to shun the negative allegations submitted to you.

Bill and Debbie Ostrowski, Bill and Marie Strub
and so many other good friends. Those of you who
know Eddie C.,he kept us in stitches the whole
time. The tours to Ft. Hood were outstanding.
The Army there welcomed us with open arms and
treated us all like VIP's. They showed us some
of the latest equipment our young G.I.'s are
issued, very impressive. The soldiers them-
selves are smart, dedicated young men. They
honored us and our service in the Constabulary.
They made us proud to have served before them.
It was an honor to just sit and talk to them
in their Dining Hall (it will always be a mess
hall to me)and have lunch together.TheSGT.who was our host/guide (Staten) even had the base
museum opened especially for us, which had been closed due to lack of manpower. We sorely miss-
ed Irene and Jim Deming who is very ill,we pray
for his recovery. The "Laua" on banquet night
was hilarious as some of the ladies sang some
of the old tunes a'la Andrew sisters. They were
great and the band cooperated playing those old
numbers. For all those that could not attend,

I have a retired Army friend that lives there and he told me that the base was pretty empty as many of the troops stations there are in Iraq. I wondered if you were able to tour the base as we toured Ft. Knox a couple of years ago.

Tell us about it and post some pictures if you can and is our new National Commander Lou Lynn?

Hello all you Circle C Cowboys, And all you who put up with us for all these years; And those who worked along side or otherwise provided support at a time when our world was a little unsettled. Greetings. May each day bring you more blessings than the last.

Just think, no more formations, musters, roll calls, briefings, briefbacks, pass in review, and no more patrols. Unless you're scouting Wal-Mart or some other retailer.

Remember those cold German winters, with fog so thick you could move it with the wave of a hand, and how you waddled out to the vehicle because you had on so many layers of clothes on you could hardly walk? Well, those days are gone forever, and the only fog lingers in our mind.

So just kick back, take it easy, enjoy every day, and keep in touch with old friends. These days, for what ever the worth, are really the best ones. And tomorrow, we'll talk about them, if we can get anyone to listen.

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?

To All Troopers:

I just got off the phone with Irene Moore, our website editor. She apologizes for not having been on the Internet but she had a very good reason.

She has been traveling a lot due to her husband Ronnie's job. They travel all over the U.S. of A. but the main reason is that her computer crashed and she couldn't get to her data.

The computer company eventually restored a lot of her data but it was sent to her in CD's which she hasn't had time to review since she didn't have access to a computer web port while she was traveling. She arrived at her home in French Settlement, Louisiana just last weekend.

She believes a lot of her email data may not be restored and since a lot of you have sent her your stories, that those might be lost. She said that if you want to resend them, that she would welcome them but I suggest we wait until she reviews what she has otherwise she will be flooded with stories that she might still have.

She is still very much interested in telling our stories and you all know how incredibly important she has been to the U.S. Constabulary Association.

The website she has created is second to none. So I say, "Irene, do not worry or apologize, you have done a great job for us and we really appreciate it!!!"

She is still not on the air and is getting her computer set up.

She sends regards to everyone and she will try to go to Killeen, Texas for the National Reunion.

Welcome back Irene and Ronnie... Phil Sandoval

I was glad to read of your Constabulary site. I was in Fulda, attached for rations,quarters and supervison of training with the 7811 AU. My real unit was the 7772 AU, Northern Area Signal Service Co. out of Frankfurt. I was there from Dec. 54 to May 56 when I stupidly screwed up on an inspection and got sent Kassel. The best time was in Fulda however and many of my friends were in Hq. of the 14th. A/C which I don't recall was called the Black Horse Regt. That may have been the 6th. A/C.

My job (if you can call it that) was to run the signal office, a dial central office which was in the first bldg. on the right at the gate closest to town. It was by the dependents quarters. The Provost Marshal was in the same bldg. Guys from the Hq. Co. Commo plt. operated the switchboard and the tty. John Beery was the commo sgt. and others were Bill Meals of York, PA, Sam Koontz, and now my memory fails.

I often recall catching a ride to town with a carton of cigs in a bag, selling them for ten DM and then going to the OberBayern and having plenty of Fulda Bier, russian eggs, enjoying the foot stomping music, and then hiring a taxi to get me back up the hill with still some jingle remaining. I still have my OberBayern stein the good folks gave me when I ZId. Frau Anna Wehner was a waitress there and got to be a special friend. The Luterne was a nice place to have a good feed once in a while and the Bahnhof Hotel was great to go and listen to taffel musik (table music). They had a cople of good violinists. They didn't have MPs there but had instead had troopers from the companies who served as SPs. Al Jackson of Long Island was the only SP I can recall by name.

I was the only guy in the signal office and shortly was given my own Taunus panel truck for signal purposes, of course. I never had to be serious with a trip ticket so drove the bloody truck all over from Kassel to the north to Wurzburg. On Sunday noon, rather than C Rations in the 14th. Mess another fellow and I would often drive up to Wasserkuppe for a good lunch with the USAF. The other fellow, Carl Coy was with an ASA outfit and could often "borrow" a 3/4 t and we'd drive out near the border and one day we came upon some fruliens peddling their bikes up a long hill. At that time being in a non-,ilitary outfit we didn't wear Ridgeway caps and I rolled my fatigue cap and leaned out of the cab and swated one of the gals on the butt. That provoked a loud happy howl from her and about the time we cchugged abit further a big cream Packard powered by driven by Capt John Cervola who was shaking his fist when last seen. Well we both figured that we'd had the biscuit the next day. Actually the fist wave must have been to please his wife cause the next day came and went with no fuss at all. About that time I bought a new VW from the Fulda dealer. For about $ 800.00 I recall.

But that's another story and for another day.

Best wishes to all those before and after me in Fulda.

He said he never received any awards or medals during his time in the service and I am interested in trying to see that he receives any he may be entitled to for his service. His service records were destroyed in the fire in St. Louis but he has his honorable discharge and his name unit and some dates are listed in the books "SC Servicemen of WW II".

Besides being a constabulary trooper from 1950 to 1959 I served a short time with the 510th Tank Battalion in Mannheim Germany. I have yet to find anyone who was assigned to the 510th. I was in Charlie Company. Duties were from company clerk to acting First Sgt. Company Commander was Capt Ross, the only Lt name I remember was Lt Neinast. There also was a platoon Sgt by the name of Lieutenant Nettles. Lieutenant was his first name and he was acting Platoon Leader. Little confusing but that's the way it was. Also before I became acting First Sgt of C Company, the person that held the job was M/Sgt Reyna who went to Hq & Hq Co. Another name I remember in the company was SFC Byron Sickler.

You have a fascinating site with a lot of possibilities. I first found out about the Constabulary in the 1970s from a former co-worker at the Boeing Company(Russ Johnstad), who told me that he had served in the Constabulary from 1946-47. Having been a veteran and former Army dependent who had been to Europe twice, I was intrigued about this little known unit which was constituted from battle-hardened and hard-charging Armor and Cavalry units into a rather effective and professional para-police/peacekeeper force. In a relatively short amount of time, too. It always amazed me how fast the US demobilized their European forces after the end of WWII, leaving but a mere shred of what was the mightiest Army in the world, only to face an increased Russian military might.

I don't know if Mr. Johnstad is even still alive, but I think he and his family would enjoy your site. His last known address was in Renton, Washington.

Keep up the great work!

Searching for Walter Sanders who was a Mess Cook in the 35th Con Sqdn, Troop D, stationed in Fuessen in 47.
He was briefly in Immenstadt (possibly with the 35th Tank Bn) (4th AD), and later transferred to Fuessen.
He may have rotated back to the States from Fuessen or from Augsburg when the 35th was changed to the 42nd Con Sqdn. He was tall and had blondish hair. This a priority family search. Thanks Guys.

Having a photo of that camp would be extra special. Somebody out there help me out. Thanks in advance.

Dear Sir,
I noticed the web site: www.berlinveterans.com containing a brief description in history of the Berlin Command. To access it: Open the website>Drop to the bottom of the page>Click History.
Please note it mentions, "Between 1946 and 1964 Soviet aircraft attacked twelve U.S. aircraft, causing the death of thirty-six crew and passengers."
The following description may be one of the twelve aircraft: "24 January 1964 A USAF T-39, based in Wiesbaden West Germany, was shot down by a Soviet fighter over Thuringia, about 60 miles inside East Germany while on a training flight. The crew of three, Gerald Hannaford, John Lorraine and Donald Millard were killed."
It also describes, "The death of Major Arthur Nicholson, shot by a Soviet soldier in 1985." He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart.
Recently, I read about the people sentenced, responsible for the bombing of the Berlin disco La Belle, April 1986. The blast killed two American servicemen. They were also posthumously awarded the Purple Heart.
I have been attempting to obtain information about the military personnel in those twelve aircraft. If they were also recognized for their service by being awarded the Purple Heart.
I would appreciate any/all suggestion(s) leading to the office that contains the files of the military personnel in those aircraft. All attempts thus far, have been futile.

In remembering the 22d and 24th Constabulary (1948-1952), some good memories of outstanding border patrol troops still run thru my mind. The names have long since faded and the faces are becoming harder to focus on, Never the less, it was a fine tour. I thought even the bad times were good. From Hershfield to Kissengen, to the stockade in Frankfurt, I enjoyed every day. After leaving Germany, I continued with the Army and retired the last time in 1990 at Fort Lee, Virginia. Now, as I get older, I spend more and more time thinking about the Constabulary and the places where I spent my 15th, 16th, and 17th Christmas'.

Fantastic review of history. I graduated from West Point on 3 June 1947 and was assigned to US Army Europe. I joined the 6th Constab Sqdn in August 1948 in Coburg. We were converted to the 3d Bn, 14th ACR in the fall of 1949. The 1st Sgt of G Troop almost cried when he found out that he had to change insignia. He had enlisted in the 6th Cav in 1936 at Ft. Oglethorpe, GA and had fought through WW II with the same regiment and then joined it in the Constabulary. He loved the unicorn rampant in the regimental insignia.

I was transferred to Constabulary Hq in April 1950, which in turn became Hq 7th Army later that year. I sailed for the US with my wife and daughter in January, 1952. I stayed in the US Army as an officer until 1 December, 1959, when I resigned for my wife's health and joined the Arizona Army National Guard in March 1960. I remained with the Guard until March 1963, when I joined the USAR. While in the USAR I attended C&GS and the Army War College. I retired as a Colonel on 31 December 1983.

To those of you that may served with me in Germany 48-52(Hq/Hq Co 14th ACR), I just came back from a cross-country driving trip as we went to Tucson for the OP8 reunion. I visited with many of my old buddies that couldn't make it to Tucson.

Along the way I stopped and visited with the widow of our old Commo officer, Captain Edwin Nara. The Capt remained in the Army for well over 20 years and retired as a full Colonel. He got out of Communications and worked in Military Intelligence. He passed away about 12 years ago.

Just thought I'd pass that on to whoever might remember him.

HELLO TROOPERS - I never dreamed back there in 1950 while I was marching around in that sharp uniform in Coburg, Germany with the big Circle C Patch and the yellow scarf around my neck that I would see the day, March 11, 2002 that I would hit the 70 year mark. Thank GOD for all those wonderful years and I am so thankful that in 1988 I did what the BIBLE says I had to do to have eternal life. Time is marching on for all of us. Remember BIBLE stands for BASIC INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE LEAVING EARTH. Just one little thought, if the BIBLE is wrong then we have nothing to worry about but if it's right and we don't accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, OUCH THE FIRE IS HOT AND ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE IT WILL STAY HOT --FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER------That's a long time.

Dear Sirs,
I found your web side when searching in the internet. I sought indications for the 1st or 14th Constabulary Squadron / Regiment. This squadron / regiment was formed 1946 - the 11th Armored Group also was part of his roots...

It is me about what?

I search at the end of WWII 1945 into Central Germany - see: http://www.koch-athene.de/en.htm (English pages).

At my researches I hit the 11th Armored Group. This 11th Armored Group is proved also at Shelby L. Stanton: Order of Battle in WWII... The last headquarters was in my home town Apolda in Thuringia (The 11th Armored Group was attached with the 6th Armored Division at that time). The tasks of the 11th Armored Group lay in the area of the Military Government - see: Copy of the protocol http://www.koch-athene.de/6th/doc_protocol1.htm

I would like concrete learned to the 11th Armored Group. Researches into the National Archives were without result... The assumption suggests herself in the meantime that the 11th Armored Group (analogous to the 11th cavalry group) out is arisen one thing of the 11th cavalry regiment, however. 1946 the 11th Armored Group became a part of the 1st or 14th Constabulary Squadron/ Regiment (I found this note on a side of Geocities).

Can you help me along? I seek every kind of note which lead me to the 11th Armored Group ... to still living veterans of this unit ... or to the history of the 11th Armored Group, photos of the members, documents etc etc

Do you have an idea where one can further search?

I would estimate every kind of help very much.

Hey Ray, your comments on the one year extension hit a sensitive nerve. I too like many others got caught in that "Truman" year extension. I was in Friedberg when I got hit with it. I had just been promoted to Staff Sgt. when I was told I wasn't going home.

I was so disgusted that I eventually got busted to Private but was E-5 a year later with a promise to staff if I re-upped. I told them to keep their stripes, I was going home.

I do have happy memories of my time over there though and am glad I found the US Con Assoc to relive those memories.

Just sitting here thinking about when I first got to Coburg in 1950 and how a bunch of guys were already on the train heading home when they were caught in the 1 year extension because the Korean War started. Before they got to the ship they were put on another train heading back to Coburg. I will never forget the First Sgt telling us we better not talk to any of them for a while when the get back because some are fit to be tied. What a feeling that must have been for them. I was 18 at the time and in 1 1/2 months I will hit the 70 year mark. Thank God for all those years, the Circle C Cowboys and the Dallas Cowboys.

I am searching for information on the German Military units stationed in north Frankfurt, at the post on Hombürger Lanstraße, which later was called Edwards Kaserne. All I was told was it was a mounted cavalry unit and military hospital. The front gate had a rearing horse statue and there were rings on some buildings to hitch up a horse.

After the US Army took over it was home to the The 143rd Signal Battalion, 3rd Armor Division.

The soldiers and families of the 143rd Signal Battalion, 3AD, invite you to learn our history and share our memories.

The 143rd Signal Battalion was tasked to provide Encrypted Voice and Data communications to the combat and support elements of the 3rd Armor Division, Spearhead.

From WWII to the Persian Gulf War, the Voice of Iron ensured that not only did unit commanders have contact with their battlefield elements; the unit also provided morale boosting contact with families in Europe and Stateside.

Banks and distributing points all over West Germany. As far as I know the Constabulary was in Rothwesten at that time. This tells me, that you guys handled our solid currency that has existed up to now and will be replaced by the EURO, the new European currency and we hope it will last as long as the Deutsche Mark did and longer. The spiritual father of the German Wirtschaftswunder was Gen. Marshal. He had his assistants as the famous German Minister of economy the well remembered Mr. Erhardt.

Sorry about that. It was my 1st National and we had a grand time. I want to thank the organizers of the event as it takes a lot of work to put it together. I especially want to thank Don Purrington, my commander of OP 8 and Bill Tevington (An old buddy. We served together in Hq/Hq Co, 14th ACR).
The visit to Ft. Knox was excellent. Seeing the U.S. Constabulary Memorial was very meaningful for me. It made our service time over there more special because it validated our service to our country.
Unfortunately not many people know about us. I have a Circle "C" decal on my car and many folks here in Twain Harte, California ask me about it and I have been telling them who we were and what we did.
I was a radio operator and a radio repairman when I was there from Jan. '49 to May 52. I was stationed in Fritzlar, Friedberg, Gelnhausen and Fulda and I visited these places last year in Sept. 2000 and I drank some of that good German beer in each town to celebrate my return.
So, Toni, there you have my story. I hope some of you other guys that were in Louisville add to what I have said.
I also want to thank Irene for improving this super web site so that we can tell our stories. I also served with Irene's father, Gil Matherne. It was sad that Gil was not there with us to celebrate but he was there in spirit. He is now in a better place.

My grandfather, Hansel E. Stewart (Johnnie), I believe was a member of the Constabulary in 1946. I believe he was in Germany during his tour of duty. I have some photographs and was able to determine from the helmets that the soldiers pictured are wearing the Constabulary emblems on them. Does anyone remember my grandfather? If anyone knows of him or what unit he was a member of I would like to hear from you.
