Bad Kreuznach, Germany
Standing: SP5 Aubrey J. Goolsby, formerly a cook in the Mess Section, now in the Servicing Section.
Phil Lassila was a classy guy. He drove and operated one of our two liquid oxygen tankers.
Phil rotated back to the US on 21 July 1961.
I believe Phil's home was in the state of Washington.
Phil had just recently purchased the VW Beetle, an export model for the US market which he had shipped home,
at Autohaus Walter von Hoff (Shell Gas station in the background)
located directly across the street from the Kaserne.
