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.

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.

I have followed this site for quite some time and I am truly excited to finally post this message. I lived and worked at Cooke Barracks from early 1984 trough late 1987, first serving in the DMMC as Executive Officer (XO) and later in the "Community" as Director of Logistics (DOL). I thoroughly enjoyed my work with the people (civilians and soldiers) and the many memories cultivated through my contacts with the Goppingen, Hohenstaufen, and Schwabisch Gmund communities. During most of the tour I lived off post in the town of Jebenhausen. This arrangement greatly enhanced my own experiences and cemented a fondness that I have for "Planet Goep" to this day. It was truly an out of this world, "once in a lifetime" experience. I currently live and work (no, not retired, yet) in Huntsville, Alabama for an Anheuser-Busch beer distributor, and as an Air Cargo Ramp Agent at the local airport. I would love to hear from anyone associated with the Goppingen and/or Schwabisch Gmund community past or present. Please feel free to make contact. To all, please take care, and Duty First!!!
