Comments:

My step father was transferred to US EUCOM. He, my Mom and brother Rick sailed aboard the SS United States from NY to Le Havre. I remember having to wait until our car was off-loaded from the ship and our long drive to Paris where we stayed in a Hotel (George V), near the Champs-Elysees. I recall a bowling alley nearby where we went quite often, but I have since forgotten it's name. We moved to government housing near the SHAPE headquarters, but I don't remember what it was called. Maybe someone can supply?

School Story:

I have two favorites ...
First - those dark olive drab "school" buses we took every day, and getting caught at the RR tracks in St Cloud where we would get off the bus and get a loaf of French bread... fresh out of the oven !!!
Second - the rumor that the daughter of an Army colonel, also a US singing star (Brenda Lee), was attending our school. I was in the 8th and 9th grades at PAHS. My name was Robert (Bob) Fay at the time, (1959/1960), and my brother was Rick Ericson - confusing I know, but I didn't change my name until 1963.

Thanks Susan for the information about the bowling alley. You are correct, it was in the PX on the street near the George V. We were staying at that hotel at the time, and I remember walking down the street to the PX.
