    I think Renee is from Austria. I know it isn't Germany, but if that's close enough her screen name is semstr. You could probably pm her, she's a nice gal.

    Hi, I lived in Germany for 8 years, we just returned last year. Four of those years I worked for the Army Health Clinic in Wiesbaden Germany, for he only pediatrician there. I am an EMT/Ma and took most of all m prerequistes for my rn while I was there. Now I am a supervisor for a 4 pediatrician office and supervise 3 ma's. I loved germany and would go back if the Air Force would let us, but alas, we are retiring sep 1, 2002.

    I have some dear friends in Bamberg Germany. I would give anything to go and visit there. They send me some very nice things, pics etc... They are visiting here next summer. But I think I would rather visit there. lol but I have 4 kids and a hubby who thinks I am crazy for wanting to go to Germany. So unless I go alone (and cause alot of trouble at home) I will probally never get there. I believe Wiesbaden is not to far from Bamberg.

    Hubby and I were stationed in Augsburg and Frankfurt over in Germany for three years. Loved every minute of it! I would live there if I could take all my kids and grandbabies with me, but since I can't, I'll make the motherly and grandmotherly sacrifice and stay within driving distance of the little darlings. :chuckle :kiss

    My husband tried to get into the airforce when we just had our daughter, they ( the recuiter) was nice, but said that hubby was to old (21). We had a child and they told us that he would not be able to support us on the income provided. I think the only thing I will be able to do is dream of getting there :-( . Probally not safe enough to fly now anyway.

    Too OLD to get into the AIR FORCE at 21???? HUH??? what am I missing? When pray tell was this? They are dying for people NOW? I am sorry for your missed opportunity! The Air Force is a great way to see things and meet lots of people...have been in and involved w/air force life for 20 years now.

    I too visited Germany in 1985. Spent a week of it in Wiesbaden, 2 weeks in the Taunus Mountains & 2 or 3 weeks in a little town called Fichtelberg-Neubau. I learned more about speaking German in those weeks! I was one of 2 Americans in a CVJM (German YMCA) camp...the counselors didn't have time to translate for us, so I caught as much as possible & shared it with the other American who did not speak a word of German.

    When we wanted to grip about something to each other, we realized early on that if we lapsed into a VERY thick southern american accent & spoke rapidly, few could understand us! It was one way to blow off steam when we were in the throes of culture shock!

    Ich liebe Deutschland!

    Hi Lisa,

    as Fergus posted already, I am not in Germany, but in Austria.
    You are welcome to pm me any time.
    Of course Austria is different as Germany, we are a bit "gemuetlicher" (=easy-going, slow-lived) here as the Germans.
    Want to learn the'll learn German with a very interesting dialect to it!
    Want to work as a nurse, RN, LPN whatever......we need hundreds of them.
    But as I said pm me any time, when you are really serious about this, I know the right people to help you out.

    take care, Renee
