    1. I’m an old sentry dog handler from Bitburg in the early 60s. Do you guys have reunions? Our group has biannual reunions, but our numbers are dwindling. I thought we may be able tie in to yours if you have them? Anything scheduled for 2018?

    Loved Dolly’s, and made great friends. Sad to learn of the base’s closure. Absolutely loved your history and stories of the base. Thanks for sharing, and best wishes.

  4. I was in the 50th A.P. K-9 section 1964-1966. Sgt. Krouse was the kennel master.The caretakers were Joe and Heinz.I received my dog at dog school when he was just 11mos.old.His name was Aster von Stuffenburg the3rd.Sounds like royalty.I cried when I had to leave him.I attended more wine and beer fest with my buddy George Sickendick then you could possibly imagine and left a ton of broken hearts in Amsterdam.All in all I had a blast.

  5. Tom, great site good work.
    My experience in the 50th K-9 (October 1962 – August 1964) was one of the most rewarding and memorable times of my life. I think of the camaraderie with the guys I worked with and the dogs, especially Drusus (Sam) who was my K-9 partner during that time, as a close ‘pack’ of dog/men. my memories were so rekindled by the reunion we had in South Carolina in 2011 that I’ve written a (mostly accuurate) memoir of the time, Angels of the Night but Devils by Dark, available on Amazon Kindle, BN Nook, I Books, etc. If any one is interested, more info @www.jdbennett.us.
