HISTORIES & MISC. INFORMATION
HISTORY OF DRAGONER KASERNE
mid-1980s
(Source: Email from Flo Conner)
Great site and thanks for all the hard work! I can answer a few of the questions under the Mainz sections of Dragoner Kaserne.

The picture of Bldg 6653 is the back of the MILCOM's Headquarters and MP barracks. To the front left on the first floor was the BG's office suite (complete with bulletproof curtains and windows), middle square windows were bathrooms, and top floor was barracks. I was part of the PAO on second floor right side back, and my office was right below the barrack's bathroom, which made for interesting overheard conversations. I worked there in the mid-1980s.

A little further down is a picture of vehicle scales with a "?," and I believe those were part of vehicle inspection, with a metal doors covering a recessed area where the mechanic could inspect the underside of the car. 

The former Lee Barracks building is being developed into an upscale apartment complex - http://www.dolphin-capital.de/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/131114_NEWS_www.allgemeine-zeitung.de_region_mainz.pdf

There's a Facebook page for the Mainz MP Station and I'll post the link there if anyone wants to add any info.
