Tompkins Barracks 1975-77

First this tour at Tompkins (1975-77)was my third time there. I was drafted in 1966 and sent to Tompkins, then 656th Engr Bn (TOPO),in Nov, left in May 1968. I was assigned to B Co (map reproduction, since I had swept a newspaper foor while I was in HS the Army determined I was a qualified printer).
I went back to Tompkins in Jan 1973 on a REFORGER deployment from Ft. Hood TX and spent several weeks there.
In Oct 1975 I was sent again to Tompkins - now the 649th Engr Bn (TOPO) - where I served initially as Plt Sgt of the Mobil Repro Plt and later with the Bn S-3 operations.
While there the last time I met and married a soldier from MILPERCEN.
I would like to share memories of this time if you care to.

Looking for buddies that were stationed their in 73

Noticed that most of the bases I used to be stationed or worked in have closed. Hopefully Tompkins has closed yet. Would love to travel there and see it once more. Didn't care too much for the guard duty around the buildings in the back though.

Tompkins Barracks

I was stationed in Schwetzingen and lived in Tompkins and worked at Kilbourn K. from Nov. 1971 until around late 1974.


Hi Joe it has been a long time !!!! I still have the picture Beach, Pete Ball, and you and a shelving unit that you all had made. I remember that you worked with Dave Stone. Funny how you can remember those guys 40 years later. Are you and Sandy still together? I went home and married Sue and had two kids and now have 1 grandson. I still every once in a while look at the group photo we had taken in the CCC. I did run into Sgt Nelson at the Social Security complex but that was many years ago. I never thought I would ever find any of you guys. Let me know how you have been and what you have been up to?
