As a draftee who originally had orders to Vietnam as an 11b Infantry Cooke Barracks was a drastic but appreciated departure from the expected.
I was assigned to the 1st Armored Division HHC G¬1 Safety office on the post. I was the only military working in the office. A DOD civilian GS – 12 (Jack Yackman retired air force) ran the division safety operation and he had a German National as 2d in charge (Mr. Broach. I was the grunt sp4. In the military I reported to the G-1 Sgt Major, rarely saw him.
I lived on post in the main 1st AD Division HHC barracks
I got married in Dec 1971 on post in the chapel and moved to a one room “ apt” in the basement of a highrise in Fawndale :sp:
With a 5 month early out we returned to Pa & secured employment. I was called back to temporary active duty as a "filler" the summer after discharge.
I then enlisted in the active reserve. Stayed in the active reserve system 26 yrs and retired as a CW3
I have undeveloped photos of the area. When I find them will make an earnest effort to post them.
Cudos to you for a great web site
