Cooke Barracks Guestbook

Welcome to the CookeBarracks.com Guestbook. 79% of 242 poll respondents said their time at Cooke was either "great" or "the best"; 14% reported "good". Only 7% reported "not so good", or "not good". Clearly, Cooke Barracks was a magical place and, perhaps, that's why so many people visit CookeBarracks.com. CookeBarracks.com was born October 2002 and is responsible for uniting many, many people separated years ago.

This is where those who served at Cooke find each other. You're invited to add your entry so others can find you. For the past ten years, lots and lots of reunions have been made via this Guestbook

Please note your post MUST INCLUDE your FIRST NAME, LAST NAME, and EMAIL ADDRESS or it will not post. Email addresses are hidden by the guestbook software and replaced with email links to prevent spamming and email harvesting. Said differently, your email address remains private unless you respond to a Guestbook entry. Only then will the person you wrote see your email address (but nobody else).

This guestbook includes a couple thousand entries over ten years. So, there's little point in searching page by page to locate someone. This is where Google is put to work. Here's how to search for a long lost friend:

Go to www.google.com and search for your friend exactly like you see in the line below (this includes the quotation marks and "plus sign" immediately next to 'cookebarracks.com'):

"First-name Last-name" +cookebarracks.com

Trust me, if your friend has posted an entry in the last decade, Google will return a direct link to the appropriate Guestbook page so you can email your friend.

I was stationed at Cooke Barracks from 1975-1978 with the 1st Battalion 26th Infantry of the 1st ID(F) and then again from 1985-1989 with the 1st ID(F) and the 4th Battalion 16th Infantry.

Nothing but fond memories.

Wanted to see if I can locate any of the great guys I was stationed with from July 71 to March 73. I was with the 385 th MP's.

Arrived as a young SP-4 and left as a Sgt.

I remember our NCO was a guy we all lovingly called Duck Walk!

And the number 2 NCO was a S Sgt by the name of Schuyler or Schafer or Schuler!

There was a young MPI who arrived with me by the name of Jim Ayotte! And we had a civilian interpreter by the name of Rudy.

I worked as a Desk Sergeant for awhile and then somehow got a plum job as vehicle registration NCO!

Anyone out there who remembers me please email me so we can catch up on life!

I was stationed at Cooke from the summer of 1959 to early fall of 1960 when I was discharged. During that time I was TDY with the 4th. Armored Div. honor guard at Bad Tolz ( outside Munich) for several months. I have lost contact with everyone I served with.

I was in the 8th Division Headquarters G-3 Section
with offices in the main Stabsgebaud Building with helicopters landing right outside the office. Generals Watlington and Harold K Johnson were just down the hall from G3 (Lt Col Ben H Ward, ACofS G3)office. I was there in 1956-57 before the 8th Division moved north and enjoyed this location and
the people I served with. These were all college educated people and that made the adventure more pleasant as we all moved from Fort Carson at the same time. We spent a lot of Sundays on the cheap Army bus tours to areas of Germany and a weekend at the Fasching in Munchen. Some of the most memorable times were when we biked to nearby gasthauses for a cheap meal of Viener schnitzel mit kartofeln salat mit bier and talked with the common people.

I was assigned to HHD USMCA, Goeppingen Germany as the NCOIC DIO Supply.
I also worked at the Officer's Club as night manager, and filled in as the bartender sometimes.
I met several great military and civilians.
I revisited Goeppingen Germany in 2008 and it brought tears to my eyes with the great memories that I cherished.
