To the Kdilnr: More t h a n tv/n months have passed fincn the 142nd FJicld- Artillery Group {Arkansas National Guard' r l t a r l q u a r t c r s left the USA for duty in Germany, and some of us fpel that ynu find our oilier friends in and near Fayetteville would like to hear of our experiences. The trip over was generally rough, but in the En#I Hah ' C h a n n e l the change to Tine weather was striking. As we ap- ' proached the C l i f f s of Dover just after breakfast on Sunday, 21 October, a b r i g h t sun was shining; and one of the ship's officers, who had been through the channel several limes, said that lie harl never before .seen the While Cliffs in sutjh favorable weather. It sure was a great sight. The next day, we tied up at I nrcmcrhaven, the American pqst; in the British Zone. We were! Klad to leave the ship, USNS G c n - j rrnl A. W.

The day the ship docked we got aboard n German . t r a i n (not ;: 40 and H!) arid arrived here at Baumholdcr on 23 October. This cnmo had been set u n by Hitler in 1938 In provide field t r a i n i n g for his WclirniHrht. The buildings erected t h r u were of pretty rugged construction and were s u f f i c i e n t , in number tn house the overhead troops of Hie maneuver area.

The (novie theater, PX, eri" listed men's club, athletic fields, officers' club, etc., which the Germans (and later the French) had used were all in operation when wo arrived; but now under construction is a new service club, with bowling alleys, and also modern apartment buildings to house 500 families of American soldiers here. Some of these arc just about completed and the first dependents to arrive are expected early in 1352. 'They are trying to Kct the commissary ready by the same time. The H2nd is housed in barracks--not the dormitory cantonment type we had in the stales, but stone concrete affairs w i t h squad rooms sleeping four! to six men apiece. Each ronmi has a coal ( ( h r i q u e t ) burninsi stove, and once you £Cl the h a n s j of it you can regulate ih°. heat; more comfortably than if it came' from a central furnace.

We- are about 751 miles southwest from F r a n k f u r t j and the same distance southeast; from Luxemburg City.
