Wie gehts? We're glad you stopped by! This is the official web site for
Bitburg American High School Alumni, class years 1963-1970.
Pictures of people in this website are looking back at you from 1960's Germany.
Some are gone now, but most of us have managed to stay connected
because of bonds forged in high school and efforts to locate each other in the 1980's.
Col. Art Forster '63 visited Bitburg High in October/2015 to tour our alma mater and meet with students.
Those students could be our grandkids now. Art met with football players and cadets in the ROTC.
He gave a presentation chronicalling
My BHS Then and Now.
You can see there have been a lot of changes since we were Barons in the sixties!

We hold reunions every three years and seek out locations with a Bavarian
culture to stay in touch with our German experiences.
Drop by our
and catch up on the latest chat.
Plans are underway for our next reunion
in October of 2018. We will be staying at the historic Downtown inn in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Built in 1908, it was once the terminal station for the Southern Railway line.
Lyn & Jim Slaughter '66 hosted the 2015 reunion at the wonderful Inn On Barons Creek.
130 brats and spouses converged on central Texas near the Fredericksburg Historic District
to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the graduating Class of '65. The weather was
perfect in late October. We rekindled our long relationships, ate together, danced together,
and held a "Moon River" Prom just like 1965.
There was lots to see and do in this very German small town USA.
Tschuß! Bis später!
