From the end of World War II until the rapid drawdown of the early 1990s, the U.S. Army contributed to peace in Europe and victory in the Cold War with a 50-year presence in the greater Nuernberg area. During this half century the region of Germany known as Middle Franconia was host to hundreds of thousands of U.S. soldiers, many still in uniform, and their familiy members, who have fond memories of their stay in the Nuernberg MILCOM. This site establishes a forum for individuals previously associated with the Nuernberg MILCOM to share their experiences and photographs, and to learn what became of their former work places, shopping centers and housing areas.

This website is an outgrowth of the book "Sternenbanner und Kleeblatt" (The Star-spangled Banner and the Cloverleaf), by native Fuerther Bernd Jesussek, which chronicles in detail the 50-year history of the U.S. Army in Fuerth. The author is most interested in receiving photographs and correspondence related to this site that will help to serve as a fitting cyber-memento of the former U.S. Army presence in greater Nuernberg.

If you have pictures please send them to me, I'll publish them here
(I have many pictures from 1993 and later, but only few ones from the years before).
*) To avoid spam the guestbook entries will be published by the editor with a short delay!
