Message from Richard Rigsby ..... When I got on the hill in the late 1970, I think there was a small EM Club down by the guard shack and across from the EM Club was a new mess hall where we cooked ourselves breakfast after getting off duty or sitting in the club watching movies or something.  There was a guy nicknamed "Tree" that was said to have gone skiing down the road in the nude one time.  When we were closed there was a like new Royal Enfield motorcycle they had to get rid of because someone didn't come back from leave.  (Nov. 9, 2001)

Message from Ray Croel .....  There are mistakes on your website of the period 57-61 and is in the chronology 59-60.  The brick part of the cabin was not an extension of the old wood cabin as I recall.  The old cabin was torn down and the new one built.  I'll have to check with Paul (Paul Miller) and some others to confirm.  But one thing I know for sure.  The other wing of the ops building did not become the day room.  The opposite happened.  The other wing (southwest corner) was the dayroom and became the orderly room.  When I arrived on Schneeberg the orderly room was the small room between the SW room (dayroom) and the messhall.  Sometime in 59 or 60 the orderly room was moved to the larger SW room (former dayroom) and the storage building west of the ops building was converted into the dayroom (or Kino).  (Nov. 11, 2001)
