    Default German Kaserne

    This past fall I was in Germany visiting my wifes family in Wetzlar a small town in Hessen. Very near where her family lives is a old WWII kaserne where her dad had served as a Hauptfeldwebel in the Signal Corp(Nachrichten) - The old HQ,s building is still standing - the pictures reflect the front of the building.

    Hi Horst, great photograph, wish I could have been there with you. Amazing building, I'm suprised someone hasn't vandalized the soldiers. Thanks for sharing.

    Take care,

    Now that's a deal Horst. I'll hold the ladder so I can make a quick get-a-way if I have to. I think you would probably be the best guide in Germany. Jay
