    Looking at the above list, I see an “Alvin Dark” listed in the late 60’s. I don’t know of an “Alvin”, but I do know that Robert “Bobby” Dark was there from 68-71. That would be ME. I’m alive and kicking in Oxford, Alabama.

    Rich, you might want to add a few names: Dennis (Bub) Croy (late 60’s) and Walter D. Calvin (late 60’s) and David Nye (late 60’s). There was also William “Zeke” DeSorbo (I understand that Zeke is living in Texas and working at a hospital.

      Hey Bobby!! Do you remember a guy named Ron Lantz?? I am now retired and living in Mineral Wells WV. I was there in the early 70’s and lived in the same village you did. Think it was called Hoxel. We used to go (Stompin) in the snowy fields in our VW’s there. I also remember Zeke and his fooseball. He sure was good at it.

      Rich, I’m pretty sure John Sellers, from the motor pool, is in Salt Lake City if that helps. Sure enjoyed browsing the site. Seen a lot of names on here I remember. If anyone wants to contact me my email address is

  12. Hi! This is Tom Gowing (Munch) 1971-1973. Retired in 1990, now living in Mesa Az. Loved the days of good beer and great freinds.

  13. bach Ammo in September 1967 with my family. My sponsor was SSgt McFeeters, I was temporily quaetered at the Maria Rahn fir the first few weeks until my quarters were ready on base, I was assigned to Shipping and receiving working for a SSgt Sams, Unknown to me at the time. mt arrival was not entirely welcomed by everyone. I was assigned base quarters upon my arrival, which was great for me, but… The quar0ters I was assigned was previously assigne to a SMSGT Caruthers, who was bumped to give me the quarters. I understand that he was waiting 18 months for that house. That did not go over so well, and to top it off, I was later assigned to Munitionas Control, a section he was charged with, I must admit he was a good sport about it and a very fair boss. I had the privilidge to serve with him later on in my career. Morbach was a veery memorible tour, I had the honor of working with very dedicated professionals. After Mirbach, I went on to complete a 23+ year career, I retired from the Air Force in June 1984. I persued a career in Computers and Electronics, I retired from Computer Sciences Corp as a Senior Field Engineer in 2009. I presently reside in Las Vegas, NV. I plan on providing Photos and more stories about Morbach.

    wow….. i just saw what morbach bomb “dump” has become, it took me by suprise. i was there in 1992 and had alot of good times.

  17. Gene Rayhart says:

    I was at 50th ASUPS 1979-1981….Living in New Mexico now.

  18. Jim Dotts says:

    Being Commander of the ASUPS was a great experience. I had good people working with me, both German Civilian and Military. My wife and I both enjoyed our stay at Hahn and in Germany. Our children learned to speak German and to enjoy a different way of life – something that has stayed with them and helped them in later life.

    After we left Morbach I was assigned to AFOTEC at Kirtland AFB and retired from there. After retirement from the AF I worked for Sandia National Laboratory for thirteen years and for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for an additional fourteen years.

    Donna and I are now retire and living in Manhattan, Kansas.

    • richmc461 says:

      Congrats on what sounds like a successful working career. Thanks for sharing with us. We spent a week in Manhattan, Kansas one Sunday afternoon (to borrow from W.C. Fields.) Actually the reservoir was a nice break from Kansas in general. Just so happened the wheel bearing on our car went out there on a trip out to Colorado.

  19. James A. Smith says:

    I arrived at Morbach in July 1966 as an A3C as a redirect from St Mihel France (Operation Freloc). I left in 1968 for RAF Sculthorpe. I returned in ’82 (Third European tour) and left again in ’85. I was assigned to Sugny while it was still under German control (Had to wear civies). I retired in 1990 and retired again in 2009 as a network engineer for the local hospital here in South Carolina. Morbach was still my best assignment but my three years in a 12 man detachment at CFB Lahr (Canadian Base in Black Forest) is a strong second).


      Hello James A. Smith!

      Could you tell me if you knew/met Sgt. Bruce Lee Bardin in 1985 – Sugny-Morbach?

      It was my first boyfriend and since 3 weeks ago I know and saw his grave, then that he died on May the 10 in 1991. (the day of my birthday!)

    Dave Perzel (Lt. Col Ret.) here. I was the 617th MS commander, the last Morbach commander, and I just wanted to pass on my best wishes to all of the Morbach Ammo alumni. My wife, Annette, and I are now living in Rosemount, Minnesota. We still often think about the great people of the squadron and the local Morbach community that we had the honor and pleasure of knowing. Glad to see there is a website for the Morbach Ammo community.

    My name is Shawn Wentz and I am the stepson in-law of James C. Chipps. I believe this is the same James Chipps that is on your list above. Unfortunately James passed away on 07/28/2013. He had a license plate on the front of his old Ford pickup that read IYAAYAS and I remember asking him what it meant. He was very proud to have served in the U.S. Air Force and was fond of the time he spent working in AMMO. I remember lots of bomb dump stories. He never had any kids of his own but has a stepson “Daniel Lacanne” 2 grand kids “Alexis and Brandon LaCanne”, a stepdaughter “Patty Wentz” and a stepson in law “Shawn Wentz”. Also several other siblings that I unfortunately don’t have any information on. He was a good man and will be missed.

      Chris, of you have pictures or a copy of the memory book I’d be happy to put them online. Of course, all original material would be returned to you.

      • MARDENS C. says:

        Hey Richard J,

        If I well understood, there is a memory book of Morbach, somewhere? How could I see it?
        Thank you,


      • richmc461 says:

        Caroline, first mention of a memory book was Chris’s mention of it above. I have not seen one. If I get access to it I would like to share it here. Hope that happens,

    • Ryan says:

      Chris, been trying to find you since we closed Morbach back in ’95. I’m currently working at Edwards AFB as a civilian. Would love to catch up with you sometime. I might have some pics of us TDY closing some of the COB’s that we had.

    • MARDENS C. says:

      Chris, Caroline Mardens here from Belgium, Good idea ! I would like too the same as you.

      Nice end of week,

  42. Ron Lantz says:

    Hey Bobby Got your email the other day. Not sure how to reply directly to you. When I hit reply, it seems to come back to this site. How about sending me your email address so I can email you direct. Thanks Ron Lantz

  43. James A Smith says:

    It’s strange to hear comments about closing the COBs when we had worked so hard more than a decade earlier to open them. James A. Smith, SMSgt, USAF Retired (24 years RA) IYAAYAS!!!

    • richmc461 says:

      Too true. So many times we expended so much energy to make things happen only to have them not ever come to fruition. I remember during the Reagan administration we jumped through our butts to bring various cruise missile sites on line, think Wuescheim as one of them, only to have them negotiated away a year later in nuclear reduction talks. But in so many of those instances the teamwork and camaraderie were priceless. And, being able to send 18 -20 guys to Denmark for a month, what an incentive program that was. Great memories.

  44. Don Greenwood says:

    Hey Smitty, Don Greenwood here. I was one of the first Morbach Sideloader operators along with Dave Drew and Lenny Seifert back in ’85-’86. I think you helped us keep those crazy machines humming, right?

  45. James A Smith says:

    Don, I was the Maintenance Branch Superintendent and coordinated the Denmark COBs. When they decided to take over Sugny, I went over there sort of incognito (civies and POV) and lived in Bouillon. Major Maguire wrote my order so that I could return to Morbach every two weeks (weekend) without breaking my TDY pay. There was lots of fanfare from the brass when we officially took over but lots of problems like no way to pay the local nations and our fuel and electric bill. If I had not been able to speak German and French, we would have been cold and in the dark by ourselves. I wanted to extend but MPC denied my request and sent me to Cannon AFB to run a 9 man CMU. I retired soon after. I remember Dave getting his super secret assignment against his wishes. “Schmidtty”

  46. Daniel (Smitty) Smith says:

    Sugny was a blast and staying in Bouillon at the hotel Chateu du Fort was the best. We were treated like kings by Gil and his food was simply amazing. All totally I spent about 12 weeks in Sugny. Also loved going to Nordholtz, Alhorn and the other northern Germany COBS. From 89-91 I ran Ship/Rec and was also a Senior Customs Inspector. During Desert Shield and our out load of Morbach I ran the railhead. I met some of the best AMMO troops at Morbach and I miss them all.

    • MARDENS C. says:

      Hi Daniel (Smitty) !
      Are you on Facebook? From when to when have you been to Sugny and the hotel du Château Fortof Bouillon?

      Thanks a lot,
      Caroline Mardens

    • Jeff Reese says:

      I was part of the last crew to go to Sugny. LOVED it up there and Gil was fantastic! I still have the green log book that we used at the guard shack in Sugny. Man, the memories!

  47. Don Greenwood says:

    Gil was such a great host, I remember him having incredible full breakfasts for all of us at 4:30 AM before we left each day for Sugny. Him wearing his cowboy hat and singing country music even when he didn’t speak english tthat well! The Sugny and Denmark TDY’s were some of the most memorable times in my service. I was stateside after Morbach, stationed at Langley for the balance of my 4 years, then got out and joined the civilian world again. Been in the medical/ hospital supply chain / advanced logistics and enterprise executive sales world for since then. Settled into Orlando, FL where I am today. Never was able to track down many folks we worked with from the good ol’ Morbach days, but have a lot of good memories of Germany.

    • MARDENS C. says:

      Thank you Don, Caroline Mardens here, from Belgium.
      Did you met or meet Sgt Bruce Lee Bardin in Sugny and Bouillon (Hotel du Château Fort) in 1985? Are you also on FB?

      Thanks a lot!

  48. Daniel (Smitty) Smith says:

    Caroline, I am on Facebook, Bruce Lee Bardin does not ring a bell. I first went to Sugny in late 1985 – early 1986.

  49. MARDENS C. says:

    Smitty, Tkx for your response, then if I well understood you,you mean that Bruce Lee Bardin, does remind you of anything? I think he was in the shop with the Husband of Helen Fountain in Sugny.

  50. MARDENS C. says:

    And they are a lot of Daniel Smitty Smith on FB ! Please, helpme on that!
    Thanks Smitty !

    Jeff, totally agree with your about the trips to Sugny, and all the other COBS in Northern Germany. Gil did treat us all like kings and the many games of UNO were just crazy wild. Would love to go back to Bouillon and visit. I was also on one of the last trips to Sugny. Matter of fact remember the Boars Head crest that was on the head shed. It’s hanging in my Garage. Everytime I look at it I just have to smile
