7th Signal Brigade
1970-77, Coleman Barracks, Mannheim Germany

Under construction, 1.400

After completion of my 1-year tour in Vietnam (IFFV), in Jun '70 I was assigned to HQ, 7th Sig Bde, stationed at Coleman Barracks, Mannheim-Sandhofen. Its 4 Signal Battalions were located in Darmstadt, Heilbronn, Kaiserslautern, and ??
Its mission was to provide area-type communications to HQ USAREUR & 7th Army and the 2 Corps, V Corps in Frankfurt and VII Corps in Stuttgart. Because of my German language qualification I was assigned to the Coleman Barracks Installation Coordinators Office on special duty. After about a year there I moved to my regular position as NCOIC of the brigade information office
