Artillery Group (Redstone)
submitted by Jim Ryan who served in Btry A, 1st Msl Bn,
Photos were taken December 23, 1960 at 40th Artillery headquarters
in Wackernheim, at an annual Group Christmas Party for kids
from a Wackernheim area orphanage. Those of us in BK from
580th Engineers and "A" Battery would travel to Wackernheim
for the afternoon. We each "adopted" a child for the afternoon.
The kids had ice cream and cake, etc., and received a gift
from Santa Claus. Kids enjoying ice cream and cake. This
was my little guy for the afternoon.
