Should be interesting. I was an army brat in Germany, we lived just down the road from Schweinfurt. In fact, my Junior High School was in Schweinfurt, down the road from Ledward barracks. Ledward Barracks was also bombed by the 8th Air Force, one of the barrack buildings was gone leaving a vacant lot between the other barrack buildings. At the time you could also see mounds left from where the 88mm gun emplacements were. This was back in the 1970s. I still recall my dad driving me down to the river harbor area to show me the bomb damage that still remained. Down the road from school, in fact I could see it from my English classroom (hello Ms. Steffens, should you be reading this!), was Conn barracks. It was a Luftwaffe airstrip used in the defense of the Reich against allied bombing raids. Even better, Leighton Barracks in Wurzburg, where we would go shopping, was another Luftwaffe airbase. The PX was one of the hangers and the airstrip where the M109s and FWs would take off from was still there, complete with the side parking ramps. So was the control tower. We also visited a German radar site near, at the time, the East German border, it was mostly torn down but still had the base for the Wurzburg radar dish. Another Luftwaffe site had a series of bomb craters on the summit (Wasserkuppe site) from allied bombings. Used to play hide and seek in them! So, from an early age I was aware of the US bombing missions over Germany and saw plenty of history during our European assignment.
