Welcome to the new site

Posted or updated 09.28.08 by Bill Lamb

Welcome to the Rimbach Vets Web site.

I hope everyone who visits finds something about it they like, if nothing more than perhaps a photo, article or comment that tickles a long-dormant memory of youthful good times.

A first-time visitor to this site who is unfamiliar with Rimbach, the Cold War or even military service in general might wonder what all the hubbub is about. I direct the newcomer (“weed” in our parlance) to this article by Harry Wallace. It’s probably the best description I’ve seen of our experiences. For obvious reasons, it does not go into detail about our work, nor does it explain why we treasure our memories of those times.

To understand more, visit our forums area, and you’ll eventually get a taste of what it was like and why we remain so close after all these years. At least we hope you do.

As for you old-timers, you Rimbach veterans, I hope you like our new Web site. I urge everyone to read this forum entry about how best to use the forums. GIven more time and fewer distractions, I know I could have given you better results on this site, and I’ll be tweaking and changing as time goes by. Any typos, mistakes or other problems are purely my own, so don’t hesitate to let me know about them.

So go forth and explore, Rimbachers.
