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.

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.

I was in the 504th Admin Co from November 1968 thru May 1970. I worked as a Personal Specialist (71H20) under Sgt Lamos. I can remember 1st Sgt Lugo Lugo and if pressed could remember some other names such as Eldon Cherniss, Dennis Smith, John Downing, Jerry Feinstein, Joe Mussamarra and John Bradford. If anyone remembers me I would love to hear from them.

Stationed from 85-87 Eco 55th Maint BN then 193rd AVN Co. It was my first duty station. Learned a lot from SSG Phillips, SGT Carrion, and SGT Rousseau. Worked in the Motor Pool and being in an aviation we were like the black sheep of the family. Did a lot of traveling to different countries. The best time in my 21 years in the Army.
