I want to thank Julian Garcia for posting the pictures I sent him. To view them, click on my name on the home page. They depict the 510th Signal Company (B/M) at Saumur and of the depot as we saw it, tents, Quonset huts, mud and all. I hope some of the 510th personnel see the pics and that it brings back (fond) memories.

Woodward checking in. I was stationed at the USAGD Saumur from Oct 1961 to Sept 1962. My Unit, the 510th Signal Company (B/M), came from Tobyhanna Signal Depot in PA when the Berlin Wall went up. We came over on the USNS Buckner landing at Cherbourg on October 10th. We were billeted in a warehouse, then a tent city designated “Camp Myth” by the troops and then in Quonset Huts. Depot Commander was Col. Elmer M. Schaudt. Company commander was Capt J E Fitzmorris. Officers were Lt Krivitski, Lt Woodward, Lt Bellafato, Lt Grace, and Lt Robinson. WO’s included Boylan, Kelly, Jones, and Lehman. NCO’s included MSGT May, SGT Okupski, SGT Willis, SGT Franko, SGT Graham, and others.
My tour of duty ended in Sept 1962. I left Orly Field, Paris, on a MATS flight landing at McGuire AFB near Fort Dix, NJ, after an unscheduled fuel stop in Goose Bay Labrador. Lots of fond memories.

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,
Bob

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.
