USMCA Fulda / 220th BSB (APO 09146) - Histories, Misc. Information
(Source: Email from Robert M. Turner)
I served in Fulda 1974-1976 in the Regional Personnel Center, SP4 Robert M. Turner.

We provided personnel management for all military personnel (and their dependents) from Fulda, Bad Hersfeld and Wildflecken. While based in Fulda our headquarters was in Heidelberg.

I specialized in in-processing, reenlistments, retirements and Article 15’s. Handled Officers and NCO’s particularly.

Do you have further info, photos, stories or contacts? Any other personnel stories in West Germany during that time?

Thanks for what you do.
