I just found this site by accident. I was stationed with the 510th signal compay at the depot at Montreuil Bellay from Labor Day weekend of 1962 until the last week of August 1963. I stepped off of the USS Gordon at the Brooklyn Army Terminal Sept 3,1963. Charlie Degaule had booted the US Army out of France and the 510th was disbanded. A Warrant Officer that didn't even know was in the 510th brought the company colors back to some depot in Eastern PA where they had been stationed before the Berlin Crisis. My friends and neighbors had volunteered me and so my time was up.I arrived at the depot on Labor day weekend 1962 and I left the last week of August 1963.
This site sure brings back a lot of memories.
Thanks again,

Just took a trip down memory lane and oh how sweet it was, thank you for putting all this together. I didn't return to SSD and sure wish I would have. My first baby was born while in Saumur, he was born in Chinon hospital my husband Dick was out in the field playing war games so I was driven by military auto to the hospital, Dick didn't see our son til the next day. Young and nieve I just did what I had to do, no complaints. I was alone with my baby at age 19. I cherish my stay in Saumur, was a great experience. Wouldn't change it. (1957)

I was stationed at the signal depot near Saumur from 1952 to 1955 with my husband then Lt. Harold B. Ross. I am probably the oldest in your guest book. I did remember all of the Americans there but have never had any contact. Major Harold B. Ross resides in Rapid City SD and is now 92 years old. We lived on Marchel Le Clerc in Saumur from 1952 to 1955. I now live in Tacoma, WA. Would love to hear from families of any of these fellow Americans. Wonderful memories from those years.
