The military part had its ups and downs, of course, but overall a great experience at Cooke Barracks, 1987-1989 as the G-5 of the 1st IDF. It was a great group of people, both Americans and Germans. I also was the President on the American side of the German-American Club. Still keep contact with some of the German friends made during that time. Thanks to Herr Roehler, started my love of trains, especially from Maerklin.

I am curious about Cooke Barracks because my father served in the US Army Medical Corps during WWII . At the cessation of hostilities he was stationed in Goppingen and was an officer (at times commanding officer) in a military repatriation camp in Goppingen. Would the Cooke Barracks ( or its predecessor) be the only military repatriation camp in Goppingen? Is any of it still standing? I have a bunch of pictures from 1945. Brian

When I was in Goeppingem, most knew me as Annie. I worked at both the NCO Club and Officer's Club. I had such a wonderful time meeting some of the best people. I would love to see more pictures from 1987 -1990. They only pictures I have are in my mind.

DMed 79-81, and then the health clinic (762nd Med Det.) 81-82. Good times, fond memories. Recently learned SFC Muckenfuss passed away in 2015. He had a big impact on my military and civilian career. I've spoken of him often and wish I had looked him up before he passed away. I was young and dumb back then. Wish I had made more of my time there. I'm a fed civ employee at DFAS now.

I was stationed at Cooke Barracks from 1972 to 1975. It was my first assignment in my Army career, which spanned 26 years. I initially arrived in Germany in January 1972, assigned as Platoon Leader of the 3rd Platoon, Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry with duty in Augsburg, Germany. Shortly after my arrival in Augsburg, I was sent to Goeppingen as part of the advanced party for our move from Augsburg to Cooke Barracks, where the unit stayed until deactivation. I served as platoon leader for one year and then was assigned as Battalion S-4 (Logistics) for my second year and then assigned as the Financial Management Officer for the 1st Infantry Division (Forward) until my rotation back to CONUS. I participated in several REFORGER Exercises during my time at Cooke Barracks. After I returned to the states, I continued my Army career with assignments at Fort Ord, California, ROTC Instructor Duty at the University of Minnesota, another Germany Tour with V Corps in Frankfurt, commanded Training Command at Fort Dix, New Jersey, a tour in the Pentagon with the Army Budget Office and finally my last tour of duty as Director of Resource Management of Army Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. I retired from active duty on September 30, 1997 at the rank of Colonel. I always think back to my days at Cooke Barracks with good memories and a fondness for the German people who were most gracious hosts for so many U.S. service members over so many years.
