I read your Nike article with interest, since I grew up at in the apartment building on the Stars and Stripes property in Griesheim. The location you attribute to the Nike Missile site is not quite correct. The area you have marked in blue was simply a wooded area and contained only several bombed-out ruins from WWII. I know because I played in that area almost every day from 1957 to 1963. The black and white photo was most likely taken along the "old" Autobahn between Frankfurt and Heidelberg, since the Autobahn (A67?) that formed the Darmstaedter Kreuz was not built until the late 1960's/early 1970's. And the pictured missiles were on mobile launchers. The actual missile site was/is located just south of the airfield, in the three structures just below the word "Flugplatz" on the map you have included. At the time the site was under construction I and my friends would sneak in and play on the construction site. Later, I would watch the missiles as they were raised to the near vertical position and then lowered again from my Dad's office at the Stars and Stripes.

I haven't been back since my discharge but I often think about that place and about the night we caught an intruder inside the security fence. I'm aware that the missile site has been dismantled (internet aerial photo 2002) but it still exists as it once did in my memories. Thanks for the trip. George Lowry
