2058th Radio Relay Sqdn
& 1992nd AACS
11/06/2003 My wife searched Châteauroux AS and found a lot of memories and pictures of the place. I was with 2058th Radio Relay, later changed to 7th Radio Relay and finally 1992nd Comm Sqdn. My wife was the first American secretary to be hired at the Châteauroux High School and worked there the 1963-64 school year. She got promoted to a higher grade and worked as secretary at the 1616th Support Sqdn. 1964-65 first for Col. Hildebrand and then Çol. Pouncey. 15 of us formed a ski club in 1964 and skied at Mt Dor and in Kitzbuel, Austria. General Forman and his wife joined us.
[jpnote: Gen. Forman's son, John, is listed on www.châteaurouxamericanhighschool.com. ]
Our oldest child attended first grade at the International School at age 5 after 2 years at the Jardin Enfants. We lived at 15 Rue Just Veillat which was a brand new apartment building, very modern with central heat and the landlord kept it on Oct-May.
Searching George Linfield who was in the
7322nd Air Base

FREEMAN, David E.
7th Radio Relay Sqdn - Det 7 Vierzon
9-10-03 Stationed at Det. 7, Vierzon, France. Interested in talking with anyone from the Radio Relay Sqdnd. or any others from the Châteauroux area. Looking for old friends from France. It was good duty.
5-27-08 I am pleased to hear from you (JP). I was there, (1964-66). I was stationed at Vierzon, France, Det. 22, when it was the 2058th radio Relay Sqdnd., and then became Det. 7, when it changed to the 1992 Communications Sqdnd. Major Swift was the commander. I find it amazing how hard it is to find people from the Military days. I have some pictures. I remember Sgt. Smith. When I arrived Van Der Plough and I were doing alternate night shifts. There were only 4 of us. The other was the Diesel Mechanic. I cannot remember his name right now.. It was actually fun. I put a band together and we played around when I was not on duty. The other members were French Nationals. Had a friend from the Chateauroux Air Base that played bass sometimes. Could write a book about it all.
Searching: Jerry Hays and any of the rest of the crowd
