I wasn't sure where this fits in, so I decided to post it here. I just wanted to share this soldier's occupation bracelet. It has the coat of arms of Geislingen on it and says 1946 Germany. This type of bracelet seems to have been quite popular as a souvenir during the post war years in Germany because a number of different ones exist, usually with a unit coat of arms and unit designation on them. So far, this is the only one I've seen with a city coat of arms on it. I don't know which unit was stationed in Geislingen in 1946 either.

This is super cool! Thanks for sharing! My GGUncle served during the German occupation from 1946 - 48. I should see if there was one for where he was in Kassel.

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.

A US radar unit was located at Geislingen until the late 1950's.
