My name is Dagmar and I am a member of this group. Some of you know my name already from the mailing list, but for all new members I will introduce me briefly.
I live near Trier, in West Germany. I was born in 1961, and I am a mother of 3 children.
My father was an American GI, who was stationed on Bitburg Air Force Base in Germany until he left in 1961, a short time before I was born. He knew about my mother’s pregnancy. My mother did not give me much information about him and she sadly died in 2000 at the age of 59.
She said his name is Jimmy, he came from Oklahoma, and was stationed in Bitburg.
Also she gave me a group photo, which showed him and three friends in a German pub.
That was all the information I had, not knowing if it was correct, or if Jimmy was a nickname.
