These pictures are from George Copeland who was as an S-1 clerk in the 1st Battalion from Feb 1972 to Feb 1974. Most of that time he was an Sp/4 and lived off post with his wife.

This US Army CH-54 "Tarhe", a twin-engine heavy-lift helicopter picture was taken at Hohenfels in 1973. The Tarhe was used to carrying a detachable pod that can be used as a command post, hospital, or for other purposes. This helicopter carried a troop box. We crammed a number of bodies in there for transport. I can’t remember how many, but I remember it was cramped. I only remember using it once.
Relaxing with 3 of the Battalion medics, 1973. The barracks at Hohenfels had bare cement floors and cinderblock walls. I don’t remember if there was a stove since we were there in July. At Grafenwoehr we were in large framed tents with folding cots and our own mummy sleeping bag during the winter. I remember the coal stove there, as it was the most important thing in the barracks. My memory is not as clear on the Wildflicken field movements. I only went once and I think Battalion HQ was in nice barracks with 4 man rooms, probably left over from the German Army in WW2.
