On December 18, 2012, Mr. Curt Nutbrown, LTC Ret, Founder and Managing Director of The Heroes Support Brigade*, visited his former garrison Augsburg together with his wife and his son to pay a formal visit to Lord Mayor Gribl and to hand over hospitable gifts. At the same time, he wanted to have a look at his former site of duty as Commander A Battery, 1st Battalion, 36th Field Artillery Regiment, VIIth Corps Artillery at Reese Barracks. LTC Nutbrown was severely wounded during the 9/11 into the Pentagon and hence a Purple Heart awardee.
As Lord Mayor Kurt Gribl unfortunately was prevented from meeting him, Mr. Nutbrown and his family were welcomed by 3rd Mayor Peter Grab. Amerika in Augsburg. e.V Society organized and attended the meeting.
Later, the guests were accompanied to Bldg 116 of former Sheridan Kaserne to have a look at that historical important building. With a short look at Reese Barracks (presently under demolition), the former home of LTC Nutbrown’s unit right at Sommestraße, the visit ended.
