First Voice Heard

Prima Vox Audiat


Coming soon!

Anyone who was with the 123rd Signal Battalion before and after the move from the Hindenburg Kaserne in Wurzburg could help fill in some of the blanks.   I understand that the 123rd Sig Bn was in Kitzingen before going to Fort Stewart.  I don’t have dates on that though, or where they were stationed in Kitzingen.  Just leave a comment if you have this information.


  1. I was stationed at Hindenburg from July 1983 till Sept 1989. I was first in Charlie Company which later became Alpha Company (if memory serves me…and it is fuzzy now!) I was in Cable platoon.

    The only Battalion Commander I really remember was LTC Gramiccioni (I think that’s how it was spelled…) He was the best. Of course I remember LTC Fink and he really was a damn fink.

    I had many good times and many bad times in the 123rd. The worst part of course were the constant trips to the field and the endless inspections.

    The best part was the bier, the Kiliani, the Spring Fest, and of course my daughter, who is now 21 and lives here in Colorado with me. I always wanted to write a book about Hindenburg. But…time flies and memories fade.

    • I remember both of those Battalion Commanders well. I remember LTC Fink yelling at his wife in front of several troops. It was a disgrace. LTC “G” was the best commander I ever served under. I was the Training NCO in the S3. My name is David Rogers and I became an E5 while I was there. I you would like you can reply to me at

  3. I was stationed with HHB 123rd Signal in Wurzburg at Leighton Barracks. End of 1991 thru 1992. I frequently traveled to Kitzingen during that time where part of our unit was stationed. I’m not sure about this Hindenburg Kaserne. All notes that I have read on this said it was in Wurzburg. This is what I currently remember, but as I review and things come to memory, I will let you know.
