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 15,000 photos of people, Augsburg bases, Bavaria and past 2nd OPS reunions. Over 62,000 messages have been swapped between the 1150+ Augsburg 1st, 2nd, and 3rd OPS veterans who have reconnected since the group started in Feb 2005.

The 11th annual reunion will be held in Dallas, Texas over Columbus Day weekend, 2016. The 12th annual reunion will be held in the Baltimore/Ft.Meade, MD area over the October 13-15 weekend and will coincide/coordinate events with the 40th annual ASA Reunion led by FSA CO General Flynn and Bill Doyle.
