Photo Tour of Ledward Barracks, Schweinfurt, Germany in August 2016

A week ago in late August 2016, we passed by Ledward Barracks in Schweinfurt once again. This is a selection of the photos I took at the time.

Ledward Barracks has been closed since September 2014.

Between 11 April 1945 and 19 September 2014, 100.000 U.S. soldiers and their 300.000 dependents came through Schweinfurt.



  1. Paul Daniels says:

    I was one of those 100,000 soldiers from 1983-1985. My time with A Battery 1/76 FA is a memory that I will never forget and one that I am forever thankful for. It never occurred to me that I might not ever return to Schweinfurt when I left in early 1985. Heck, I was 20 years old and the whole wold was in front of me. Surely there would be time. Now, 32 years later the barracks are being torn down to create space for a new college campus and the time to return has gone. Another lesson that one should never put off until tomorrow anything that can be done today. Rock of the Marne!
