Here's a link to a YouTube video of a bottle dig in Anniston--it will likely make most members here cringe:

Although I was too young to remember anything about it, whatever US Army base was located near Anniston in 1952 was, as far as I know, my first residence in the USA. My dad was a WWII vet who served a second hitch after the war with the occupation forces. He met my mother-to-be working at a PX snackbar. Later, I was born in Stuttgart, Germany.

We currently have the Anniston Army Depot still in operation. But I believe you are speaking of Ft. Mclellan. It has been demilitarized and is now a large variety of different amenities. In its heyday it was a major operations point for our military.

Thanks for the info! I believe it was Fort McClellan. With both of my folks gone I'd not heard the name mentioned in quite some time.

Absolutely, and I have quite a lot of info on the area. If there is anything you would like to know I can try and help.

Can you see the date on the broken Coke & what city listed on bottom? LEON.
I haven't forgotten about getting the date of this bottle if I can. I also have several small green jar type and a cobalt blue that I believe is Phillip's or Vick's. Several other bottle jars as well. I'll get the picture tomorrow and post them.
