My father, Maj. William A. Lawrence, was stationed at Cooke from about 1963-1966 as a UH-1 pilot. I attended 5th and 6th grade there and remembered this as a great place to live. My family had fun visiting Europe during the 2.5 years we were here. My father was deployed to Viet Nam in 1966 and we were sent back stateside. When dad got promoted to Major we moved from the apartment buildings to a single family house located on John F. Kennedy Stasse. We lived in 1 of 4 houses located there that were originally occupied by German Luftwaffe officers during WWII. I remember as a kid going to the officer's club with my parents and remember you could still see the faint image of a Swastika over the main entrance of the officers club.
