I was stationed at Sembach from July, 1963 until July, 1965 as a physician at the hospital. I was chief of the hospital clinic. I lived in an apartment in Winweiler with my wife and child. We had a great 2 years and have fond memories of my fellow physicians, Bill Tedesco and Jack Oโ€™Halloran, as well as the medics and nurses with whom I worked. I also played shortstop on the base softball team. Our hospital commander was Major Stagg (he made light colonel in 1964). If anyone out there knew me please email me. Officially I was Captain Maltz but practically I was, and still am,
Dr. Maltz. I am proud to have taken care of all the terrific airmen and officers who were serving our country so honorably.

Paul Ireland was still at Sembach when I arrived there in Jan. 1964. At that time he was a Lt. Col. and the commander of the 887th TMS at Grunstadt (aka Site III). https://www.sembachmissileers.org/units-2/887th-tms/?hilite=%27ireland%27

I was at Sembach 1961-1964 clerking at B flight/823TMS. Those days were some of the best of my life, a European Grand Tour at Govt expense! I can still see all those youthful faces in the names I read on the Roll call and Honor rolls. Much has happened to us all in these past 50+ years but I see, from other entries in the Guest Book, that many of us share the same happy memories of our time there.( I look at my old room window in the panorama view of the base!)

Was at APO130 1962 to 1965 Sembach assigned to B Site near Enkenbach as a 314xx on Launch Crew with Capt Thoeni, S/Sgt Rowe NCOIC and Airman Baker the Nuke weapons tech on our launch crew. Great time with great guys, and the Bishop Brau was the greatest. Wish it could be done all over again.

I was stationed there from Sept 1963 to Dec. 1965. Was a flight Engineer on the H-19 helicopters. Loved the whole experience. My wife and I still talk about the base.

I noticed an old post from William Bill Hegyessy concerning his Father Lt. Col. Harold Hegyessy at Sembach 1959-1962.
He was my Squadron Commander from 1959-1960 at 822nd TMS.

I was shocked to see Special Order A24, where I was assigned to the Tac TM-76 Mace Missile Standardization Board. I did not know of this Sembach Missileers Reunion or the membership in this group. I was stationed in Sembach AFB 1958-1960. Flight A 822nd Tactical Missile Squadron. I was transferred from Orlando AFB to Sembach after live launches of the TM-76 Mace in Alamagordo AFB New Mexico.

So happy to find this website. 2134th Communications Squadron 86 to 88. The best two years of my life. The photo's bring back so many great memories. They had just finished the first barrack remodeling when I left for Homestead AFB.

Thank You to all who contributed to create this website!

Sembach AB was my duty station 1959 - 1961. I worked on Mace mobile support equipment mounted on MM-1 Terracruzer trucks. Enjoyed flying model planes with the Sembach Interceptors club. Lived in the barracks before moving off base to Otterberg and Baalborn. Many happy memories.

Fred Mingle stationed at sembach air base, Germany from 1953 until 1956 as a air policeman. I loved the time I was there.
Jeff Fower from Tacoma wrote on January 31, 2018
I was at Wiesbaden AB in '75 when the word came down that the Air Force and Army were switching bases and my outfit the 601st TACC Squadron was heading south. It was like going from nice city life to the middle of a wheat field. Wasn't all bad but a little too remote considering I didn't have a car. Fond memories of Operation Reforger sleeping in tents and a shower once in awhile. Celebrated the Fourth of July Bicentenial there..lots of beer and football. Left some good buddies behind when I left in early '77. Nice website...

Just a up date I just turned 88 today 10 Jan 2018. Sembach was a baner time for me wish I could do it all over again.
David Greene from Portland, Oregon wrote on September 29, 2017
I was lucky enough to be stationed at Sembach from 85 to 87. Turns out it was the most content period of my 20's. I should have enjoyed it more! I was the supply clerk embedded in the maintenance squadron for the CH-53 helicopters. Supply did not know I was on base and Maintenance thought they did and left me alone. I had a 4 man room to myself in the Maintenance barracks for most the two years. As Supply did not know I was there I was assigned no base details and was left pretty much under cover. As I was leaving there was a lot of surprised faces asking "who are you" and "How long have you been here?". Of course I had to catch up on all the missed vaccinations!

My dad Evern "Gene" Bush was a member of the 38th TMW and I believe was at Sembach around 1957-1959 and probably before that time also. Also looking for a soldier who went by "Gino" sorry, I don't have a last name, who was there around that same time.
