I was stationed at Cooke Barracks from late 1974 until early 1977 as a Military Policeman. I was with the 1st Inf. Division FWD and part of our job was to go to the field with the infantry. All of us enjoyed field duty because it broke the monotony of barracks duty. Although I enjoyed being stationed in Germany, because of the travel opportunities, every day life in Goeppingen was rather boring at times. I took every opportunity to travel with my fellow MP's on sponsored trips, all over the country and Europe. I also met, dated and married my wife over there and traveled with her also. We have been married for almost 37 years. I also met a lot of interesting people, both American military and German (Police and civilian). I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the experiences that I had.

I was stationed with the 4/16th straight from Airborne School. I didn't see any planes. Imagine my surprise. I was in Charlie Co 3rd Plt. I remeber a lot of field time either in dust bowls in the summer or harsh winters, but we relaxed by traveling, drinking and passing out on the trains and missing our stop. Great memories.

Was assigned to Company A, 144th Signal Bn supporting 4th Armor Division Hq commcenter. Arrived in May, 1967. Due to the buildup in Vietnam, ten months later, Gary Snyder and I received orders for the 2nd Field Forces, Long Binh. We arrived in Nam on April 25, 1968, just after the Tet Offensive. Fortunately, I went up country to Qui Nhon. Gary, guess he ended up with the 2nd FF further south. I really liked my time at Cook Barracks. I remember Alfrado down in the Rats Keller, under the movie theater. Good times. Whenever I hear "96 Tears", it takes me back there.
