Bill Shade's Visit May 2005
Page 1


"....During our recent travels to Germany we stopped for lunch in Herzogenaurach. Herzo Base is no more. At one end of
the old post is a McDonald's. There also is a shopping mall for Addidas, Puma, Nike and more.

We drove through what once was the front gate area. The Headquarters building, post commander's and battalion commander's houses are gone, as are all the row houses and other buildings. The cliff dwelling still is there, refurbished. There is an Addidas (or Puma, I forget) factory on post, many areas are fenced off, and we could identify some of the old motor pool buildings. There's a lot of construction in progress. The steel trees golf course also is gone......"
