They hit several spots at some of the bigger bases where Army and Air Force dependents frequented. They also bombed the airport and Rhien Main. They did hit one of my sister units close by which really ramped up security for us. I was a 24 Golf 10 working on the Hawk Missile system.

Familiar with the RAF. I wrote a research paper on them a number of years ago. Mind if I asked where you were stationed at? My old man was stationed at Baumholder from 80-89 (mil). Then he did another 10 years as a civilian contractor. I was a 90's kid growing up in a nearby German village, but I went to Baumholder High School. Probably the best time of my life .
