Group Description

** READ THIS -- If you submit a request to join the 2nd OPS group YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR FULL NAME, work shift, years at FSA in which OPS unit, MOS, current hometown, how you found this website, and info like your CO, XO, SGM, PLT SGT's, or fellow OPS soldiers names. (This is to screen out internet nuts and spammers.)

This webgroup is for ASA / INSCOM veterans of all the OPS Battalions who served at Field Station Augsburg on Gablingen Kaserne. This group was started as a way to share stories & photos, keep in touch, and find old friends. The group spans 1970 to 1993. There's over 12,000 photos of people, Augsburg bases, Bavaria and past 2nd OPS reunions. Over 61,500 messages have been swapped between the 1110+ Augsburg 1st, 2nd, and 3rd OPS veterans who have reconnected since the group started in Feb 2005.

The 9th annual reunion was held in Tampa Bay (Clearwater Beach) over Columbus Day weekend, 2014. Cindy and Rock Stephens hosted. 86 veterans and about 50 family and friends attended.

The 10th annual reunion will be held in San Diego over Columbus Day weekend, 2015. Bill Kay is hosting. Reservations at the Crowne Plaza are being taken.
