Hello, I am a Dutchman, 68 years young, I am not a militaryman but of course I did my military service as a young man. I am a collector of salesbrochures of cars, trucks, etc, since 1961. And of course my collection includes military trucks. And now, I have the time for making a "quality" comicbook, which goes back to 1958, i am looking for some information about the US Military of that period. Also to show the youth what was going on in that time, giving it more understanding.
Let me first thank you for this faboulus site, I really appreciate to be a member of this Forum. It think this is a very good way of keeping the past alive. I have a question and surely hope you could help me with this matter.
For some time now I am very busy working on a series of comic books going back to 1958. One part of the story is about a specific location in Germany: Wiesbaden/Trier. It concerns the military transport from an US Military camp in Wiesbaden going to or passing Trier. Because of course of the fact that the French were located in the Trier area: could this be possible, perhaps occasionally on a very small scale or is this absolutely impossible in the summer of 1958? Any further information on which regiment could be using this route or be located in the area would be of great interest. I ask you this because i think it is very important to be as correct as possible in anything concerning this matter, also to show respect to the persons and their organisations who were there at that particular time.
In advance I thank anyone helping me to make my comic book as correct as possible.
With my kindest regards,
Rob de Kruijs
