 A Return Visit To Herzo Base
2002
VII Corps

 Photos sent by: Andy Augustine who made a visit to the base in 2002.
Andy was at Herzo (55-57) (Charlie Trick).


 

A group of "Herzo Survivors" (circa 1955-1958) received an alert that the village of Herzogenaurach would be celebrating the 1000th anniversary during the summer of 2002. They invited us to attend and participate in this celebration. The "parade" commemorated the entire 1000 year history of the town- each decade was represented by various groups from the area. We represented the 50's and Herzo Base. A crowd of about 20,000 viewed the parade. Our group, clad in white, commemorative T-shirts, followed a vintage jeep over the entire parade route. After the parade we went to the local park where a traditional Bierfest continued on into the night.... good beer, good comradeship, a great time was had by all.
