A quote by Al Gerek:
"Detachment #3 at Rothwesten was located out past the gym on part of the old German
runway. Many guys that were stationed at Rothwesten had little or no knowledge that there
was a radar site right on the base. We were also known as a Target Directing Post."
Detachment 3 moved to Celle in October, 1956 and became Detachment 6.
