Merrell Barracks

These barracks (German: kaserne) was built for the SS Signal School and a SS Signal Reserve Unit. Soldiers from the kaserne were used to support the N├╝rnberg Nazi rallies. The post was captured by American soldiers in April 1945 and renamed Merrell Barracks after Private Joseph F. Merrell. It was HQ for 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment.

I served in a US 155 mm Howitzer battalion there in 1963. There was also an 8" How Bn there. Our Hq was at Ansbach. I assume many things have changed since then. Good to see a photo of the place today. Looking forward to finding it on a map so I can orient myself relative to other places I remember.
