Merrell Barracks

Merrell Barracks


Nuremberg, Germany (DE)
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 Nürnberg 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.

Was there from April 1969- August 1971. Cool place. Really enjoyed the smoke if you get my drift.

I served from '72 - '74 in the 614th Maintenance co. And yes this was one of the best times of my life. Had a great time at all the beer fests, rock concerts, and local guest houses and yes the smoke was awesome.

I was there in 1957 for Morse Code school. I was a radio operator at a battalion near Bindlach.
