Kim Bayes - Zweibruecken Alumni Association Historian
My name is Kim Bayes and I am a former military dependent who attended Zweibruecken American High School and the historian for the Zweibruecken Alumni Association (ZAA).
One of ZAA's goals is to try and locate as many former students who attended ZAHS as possible. Our research efforts lead us to your website, which we are thrilled to find.
If you would not mind sharing the following information with your members we would be greatly appreciative.
Please feel free to link your site to ours if you so desire.
Also of interest is an unique and exciting project underway for children who were educated overseas. Information is available at www.aoshs.org.
If you click on the AOSHS donors link on the www.zweihigh.org website you can see how Zwei is going to be involved and the proposed representation.
Thank you for your service to our country,
Kim (Cupp) Bayes - Class of 1977

Comments: Trying to make contact with RF-4 crew who may have flown training missions over
a range at Castlemartin, Pembrokeshire, South Wales. Writing a history of the range and RF-4
aircraft used the area for night photo-flash RECCE missions. Do not know which units were
involved, but must have been fom Zweibrucken or Alconbury. I would be very grateful for any
help/advice you may be able to offer.

Comments: Property Accounting Office,Tour-Rosieres,12/64 to 12/66. Reported to Maj John Rice, Jr., Maj John
Neff, Lt.Col. Pete Peterson, Lt Col Pete Pavlica and Col E.C. Blakely in that order. Also Supply Liaison briefly to the 26th FMS. My
team installed the Base Supply Univac 1050 computer at Toul, took it apart and shipped it and me to Nakhon Phanom RTAFB,
Thailand along with the RB66's.
Anyone know where (Lt.) John S. DuVall, and (Lt.) Larmar Cullpepper might be? Retired? Ran across Pete Pavlica, retired and
remarried at Pope AFB, NC in the 1970s. Lots of photos of Tour-Rosieres in the '64-'66 period. Resigned my commission after
my tour in Thailand and 4 year obligation. My 3 years in France was a vacation, my one year on Thailand was no fun. Days at
Toul-Rosieres and weekends at Ramstein AFB were definately the "good old days".
I worked at Toul, but I played at Ramstein. Toul-Rosieres is possibly now a regional air port(?). Plan to go back to NE France next
year and check out all the old stomping grounds, Nancy, Mets, and of course Toul Mountain. After 33 years in the computer industry
in sales/marketing, now currently semi-retired, living, working and playing in Vail, Colorado. Thanks for this web site, glad I found it.
If anyone remembers me, please send me an email or call.

Comments: Edited ARMY? You betcha! AATCO Ramstein. On 7th floor of the "tower". Initially involved with operations Fig Hill and
Flat Pass. Humanitarian relief to Jordan, as the PLO were thrown out(They went to Lebanon, but not without a fight...with
significant civilian "colateral damage") in Sept 1970 into spring 71'.
C-141s full of M.A.S.H. units, Red Cross Supplies, etc daily. Vehicle and equipment area next to the 7th SOS. This unit, of which I
was the first commander, expanded with multiple missions. Transfer of Nukes was a weekly occurance for the Advanced Weapons
Command, one warhead in fresh from CONUS to replace one with a shelf life pull-date out.
Co-ordinated the first C-5a tests(first birds couldn't leave the active runways because of their size, and the F-4, F-111 size taxiways)
leading to full deployment. The twice weekly "Tomato Birds" in from Spain kept commissaries and chow lines in vegatables.
During 1971 my unit expanded to cater to the new widened taxi ways and loading ramps built to accomodate Dover direct traffic
(taking load off Rhein-Main) Completed my tour in July 1972,
P.S.: Does the Trap and Gun Club still exist on RMS, if so I would like to replace a lost Patch for the Gun club!

Pearlstein, David, A/2C
Comments: I was in Supply with the 807th TACCON Sqdn.when we were transferred from Kleber Kaserne in K-Town
in October 1954 and rotated back to the Land of the Big PX in June 1955. We had been stationed in Kleber Kaserne for the
previous 27 months(we seemed to have been the only AF unit assigned to this Army base) till our barracks were built at Ramstein.
It was a great base at that time. We had a chef in the mess hall that really knew how to make SOS, and we weren't ashamed to
ask for seconds when he was on duty. Haven't tasted any as good since!! This is a great site. Keep the good news coming here

Comments: Stationed with the 81st TFS, loading crew, Lead team, training newly assigned people on
how to load munitions onto F-4 Wild Wessel's. Spent TDY at Ramstein while they lengthened the runway at Hahn.
Ramstein was the best AF base in Europe. Sure hated to leave there and go back to Hahn and eventually ended
up at Zweibrucken, need I say more. Great sight.

Ommen, The Netherlands
Comments: Stationed on Ramstein AB in '93/'94. Was Sergeant FieldPost
Office of the Dutch Communion. I and two others were responsible for delivery of
post and newspapers for all the Dutch at Ramstein and Zweibrucken.
My time on Ramstein Air Base was great.
Did a lot of shopping in the
big BX, ate the best pizza’s in the ??? near the library, played softball against
American/Canadian/Belgian Teams and kept my old car running thanks to the demolisher
at the other side of the Base. Stayed in Hotel Rosenhof in Landstuhl with at least
3 other Dutch. Have lost contact with the dutch people and all others.
Posting this note, hoping for a lot of reactions.

convenient. The runway was on this side and the housing area was on the Ramstein side - across the Autobahn. TCS stands for Tactical Controll Squadron.

Scott was a Jet Mechanic in the 26th FMS engine shop from May of 67 until he was killed in a tragic accident.
Scott was a quite guy who always had a friendly hello for everybody. Was a great guy in every sense

West, Robert - Repair and Reclamation
Comments: 1967 - 1970, R&R assistant, NCOIC and resident flight control systems expert.
(I must have been the expert, seems like I was always going TDY to fix flight control problems.) (VBG).
As my memories are now fading into the mists of time, the only ones I do remember were those [censored] RF-4D hanger queens,
the triple shifts. and the one F-4D that a certain Captain brought back with one wing leading edge slats ripped off. I remember his
name but in consideration to the rank, he shall remain only in my memory. There was also a cigar chomping senior NCO named
Preputnick, who sticks in my memory too. Anybody remember him? Probably not, Most of us have probably passed on by now.
Well there it is... I will be awaiting to hear from anyone from that era. (VBG)
